Muscle Man Paper Doll! (give away)

Here's a present for you:

a Muscle Man Paper Doll!

This is more than just a postcard. You can cut out the limbs,
head and body of Muscle Man to make a special Power Paper Doll.
Split pins, envelope, string and instruction are included.

On his shirt there's the typical Dutch word: 'STERKTE',
This is a common word we say in Holland, when people can use some extra strength

If you wanna win a Muscle Man Paper Doll, leave a comment below
(for example why you can use some extra strength
or only just for fun, because you like to win :-))
If you wish, you can also leave a comment on facebook
(you make double chance then :-))

I will pick some winners next Tuesday.
I say it in dutch now: STERKTE! :-)

exhibition: white

This afternoon I visited the exhibition White in the Dutch Photography Museum.

All works exhibited have something to do with the theme white.
And that's more than I thought. Many rooms with different themes
from food to underwear, from rascism to marriage to death.

You can visit the exhibition till the 5th of January 2014
Happy weekend :-)

the golden carriage

Today is the third Tuesday of September. In Holland we call this day: 'Prinsjesdag'
This year it's a bit special, because we have a new King and Queen.

They will make a tour in the golden carriage and wave to the people.

After that the new King will read 'de troonrede',
a speech with the plans from the government.

Everybody is curious how our new King Willem Alexander will do it.
And what his wife Queen Maxima will wear...

Last year I made this drawing of the speech spoken by our old Queen Beatrix

we survived it!

Yes, we survived it!

This was the first time we did an Art Market with a lot of rain and wind.
It was hard work to keep everything in place , but we survived it!

It was the premiere of the new card racks
They work well in bad whether circumstances, good to know :-))

kunstfestival Schiebroek

Next Saterday the 14th of September I'm on an Art Market
in Rotterdam again: Kunstfestival Schiebroek
The festival is not only an Art Market, but there's also a lot of (street) theatre.

I will sell my giclée art prints, postcards, posters, some t-shirts and bags.
If you are in the neighbourhood come by and say hello,
that would be fun :-))

If you are not in the neighbourhood, you are always welcome
in my Red Cheeks Factory shop on internet :-)

inspiration: Herman Schouwenburg

Yesterday I was at the opening of the exhibition: 'poëzie op een plankje',
with paintings (op een plankje) of Herman Schouwenburg

Herman makes small paintings of ordinairy people, he often adds text to them.
For this project they asked 7 poets to write a little poem to one of his paintings.

The exhibition is in Studio De Bakkerij in Rotterdam.
A very nice place, gallery and theatre.

I'm really impressed by the enormous amount of paintings Herman has made.
They often make me smile. All very recognizable people.

You can find his work on flickr
and on facebook
