Miracle fish

Water like mirrors
Yellow, red miracle fish
Reflect shattered suns

For the Moleskine exchange I wrote this little Haiku and made a drawing, as last contribution to the book of Anastasiya from Moscow. The total book can be seen below: from left to right Anastasiya, Ellen, Emon-Xie, Scoach, Albina and finally myself.

Gadgets

These are a few of the gadgets the Dutch supermarkets gave away for the footbal championship. In 20 years time I hope to show this picture again to our kids (or maybe our grandchildren) and have a good laugh about their collection fever.
Enkele WK gadgets die je de afgelopen weken bij de supermarkten kreeg. Ik denk dat we hierover, over 20 jaar bij de volgende Oranje WK finale, nog wel eens hard kunnen lachen.

Lourdes


Visit to Lourdes, France. We went there after our work in Lannemzan, just in time for the procession.
I sketched a few nuns waiting for the procession to start. Also a sketch of the tourist shops near the grotto. Even though the light in the sketch is accurate, I did not like the picture once it was finished. Below you can find some notes on how the composition could have been improved.
Lourdes is niet zo ver van mijn werk in Lannemezan; op een avond erheen gereden. Schetsen van nonnen, wachtend op de lichtjesprocessie, en van de souvenirshops. Ik was niet tevreden met de laatste schets, dus ook wat notities voor het verbetern van de compositie.
