Portrait of a horse named Olly

'Framed' the way my late grandfather added photos to his photoalbum.

Sent to the owner of Olly (well, people own animals as much as animals own people - so: sent to Olly's human :-) ).

The revenge of the Fish

Anyone who thinks 'sport' fishing is a nice hobby is short-sighted. There is debate about the question whether fish do feel pain or not, but I think no one can deny that having a hook stinged through your lip and getting into an environment in which you're suffering from asphyxia is not such a nice situation.

The postcard you see on bottom right made me make the illustration above.
Sent to Willemien in Germany, who loves fish in a positive way.

More rhinoceros

Rhinoceros I always think nice to draw. Here is an other one!

(Also penguins apparently are a nice theme to draw!)

The revenge of the Trees

It is autumn, time to finish the mixed media mail art I started to create many months ago. The tree leave I used, had fallen from its tree in one of the previous autumns.
A lot of Trees have been murdered recently, both in my neighbourhood and close to my work. It makes me angry and sad, however I'm finding a little comfort in the fact that nature (hopefully) will 'win' in a way, after all.

I hope the receiver won't get too sad by this scenery, so I thought to paint the envelope in bright orange colours and to add a friendly hedgehog.

Ballpoint Snail

Part of an envelope, I decorated with ballpoint lines and this Snail drawing.
I created it in 2016, then lost the envelope somewhere between other papers in my piles/files, found it again today and won't wait any longer to send it :-)
