Portrait of a poet (and of the other artist as a Brilsmurf)

Last week I had a nice meeting with the very sympathetic, creative, Dutch poet and writer Martin Rombouts. I had tried to draw him, accompanied by myself (pictured as the smurf-with-glasses :-) )
And I handed the result to him, after having added some colour to the picture (water colour pencil).
This first version shown here you can print and add colour to by yourself, if you want :-)

Donkey stamp

I've drawn this donkey some time ago and sent it away. Luckily I had scanned it, and this way kept the design. And recently it was accepted, similar to the ox, to be turned into a rubber stamp :-) So if I'll have received the stamp (hopefully next week, from UK to NL) I can stamp the donkey on my mail to my dear mail friends :-)

Year of the Ox

I thought I already had posted my Year of the Ox-ox at the start of this year, but apparently I didn't. Meanwhile I sent a scan of the design to Azeeda, a company in the UK, who uses designs as prints on all kind of objects. And, luckily for me as a stamp hoarder: also designs are turned into (unmounted) rubber stamps! :-)
I earn a few cents per bought object, and so far I'm the only one who bought this rubber stamp (plus one for Eva, Eva: it will be on its way to you soon, for your LVQR project :-) ).

Drowning thanks to DAP

Ik hoop dat de nieuwe president er ook zal zijn voor de èchte Amerikanen: de oorspronkeljike bewoners van het continent. Deze tekening maakte ik 4 jaar geleden, naar aanleiding van de brute aanval van de Amerikaanse overheid op de mensen in Noord-Dakota, omdat er zo nodig een oliepijplijn (DAP, Dakota access pipeline) door het grondgebied moest. Grrr.

I hope that the new Potus will stand for the real Americans: the native people. This illustration I made four years ago, because of the more than brutal aggression of the American government against the people, to force an oil pipeline (DAP, Dakota access pipeline), which would and will destroy the people's earth and water. So unfair and cruel...
