It's been a while since I posted anything of my own art,...interesting things! Unfortunately I've been very busy with my work. I occasionaly draw or sketch, but not as much as I'd like to. When I browse along all the wonderful art-blogs it makes me yearn to be more creative. The following image shows the work of Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington (March 10, 1876 – October 4, 1973), an American sculptor. I only recently discovered her work.

Tonight I unexpectantly had to work a night-shift, after having worked in the evening as well. In spite of the serene atmosphere in my workplace, I think I'm more of a 'day person'. Anyway, I haven't posted for a long time (and haven't drawn that much for that matter). There are a few new pictures I've made however, ready to be posted....so more to come!

I'm goofing around with pastel crayons,...very challenging but fun as well. These two where photographed with my iMac-camera; I'm a bit worried my scanner will get smudgy. If anyone has advise on how to scan such an image properly, I'd be much enclined. In a scanned image colors are more vibrant.

On my work I'm (among other things) in charge of the 'lief en leed-pot': it is my task to buy farewell-presents for colleagues who leave our company and also to make a little book for them, filled with photos and postcards contributed by the co-workers. This time I decided to vivify thinks up and make the book 'Matrix style'. I like the idea myself, but it is a bit out there....I suspect few will appreciate the joke (the parallel I suggest between our clients thought worlds and that of the Matrix). I like how the sketch turned out though!

The series 'Olivier Rameau' (in Dutch 'Roze Bottel') was comicartist Dany's (Dany Henrotin) first succes. I have one of these comicbooks titled 'La caravelle de n' importe ou' (in Dutch 'Het Karveel van heb-ik-jou-daar'). My edition is from 1978; it was first printed in 1973. In 1998 Dany created a new cover-illustration for this comicbook. I've always fancied the old one though; it has a more 'vigorous' feel to it. Compare for yourself,..the old one's on top.

I just read the news that Frank Frazetta (02-28-1928) passed away yesterday at age 82, after having a stroke. When I was 12 years old I first discovered his work, and was enormously attracted to it. His work has since influenced my own art. His death is a major loss to the art world.
