Tagebau Inden

I went to an exhibition of the drawings of the French comic book author Moebius (Giraud) in Brühl, Germany.
On the way there I passed Inden, just behind Aachen. There are huge browncoal works there. I was able to get to the edge of the terrain, viewing into the deep open mine. The machine on top of the hill stands about 2 km away, and is about 65 meters high. Just to get the scale in proportion.

Anatomy

Abelated christmas present for my son-in-law. He has a physiotherapy practice, and wanted an anatomical painting on his wall. I once visited Körperwelten, Body worlds, and made drawings of preserved human bodies. I made this collage basd on pictures of some of the displays.
Made on fabriano paper and caran d'ache watercolour pencils (museum quality, they are very good).

Lefthand gothic

Lefthand Gothic. Once in a while I do some drawing games with others.
Laura S. Fiat organized a "Sherlock game", a bunch of people make a drawing on a subject, and everyone will have to guess who made which drawing. Actually that is very hard. I only had one correct.
Subject this time was: make a drawing with your left hand, including a mirrored handwritten text.
Very hard to do.
And my inside joke: the chapel in the back is the one that is featured in the well known painting: American Gothic by Grant Wood.
