https://www.streekmuseum.nlThere is not much interesting to publish on my blog going on at the moment. But that is not going to hold me back posting anyway because I did do something.
The prints of Achthuizen came out great. The printing proces didn't go bad at all, I am getting better and better every run of prints. The lines were clean and all details came out perfect. I feel like the woodcuts I make are getting more and more detailed too so that is great for me and for the collectors of my prints.
At the moment the prints are hanging next to my bed to dry. As I have probably mentioned before, it takes quite a long time for the ink to dry. After that I am going to use watercolor to give all of the prints a nice spring inspired color. The small village Achthuizen has a great set of buildings worth visiting when you will be riding your bike this summer. So yes, grab your computer and book your vacation to Flakkee. Visit het Streekmuseum, buy some prints, grab your bike for a nice long ride and visit the places I turned into prints.
As I already said, there is not much to show you at this moment. I made a newsletter for Goed voor Goed did some other editing work and some stuff around the house so that is not worth sharing at the moment. Some photo's of my computer screen or me posing while "working" is a bit too much for me. I am not an influencer who needs to look good and give everyone the idea I am an inspiration and the perfect succes story. Life is boring or hard and not a party all the time. So yeah, the things I do are fun to do for me but boring to see me doing. Most of the stuff happens in my head anyway. Just keep reading this blog please, then you will see the more exciting products I created.
But for the sake of image sharing, here you can see some drawings I made for a booklet I am working on. Also for het Streekmuseum. This is going to be a cool project with a lot of artwork, the history of a local story from 1910 and the song for it. I think it is going to become a good educational thing for younger people who are interested in the local history and even adults can enjoy this booklet when they visit the museum or one of the performances of the theatre group who preforms the short play of this historical story.
I hope this is a nice update for you guys and you like the things I am working on at the moment. Next week it is all about painting a huge mural. Roadburn Festival is happening as we speak, so if you are there, I wish you a magical experience. I'm not there because of COVID-19... I still don't feel comfortable going to an event as big like that. To all the people of there: Stay healthy, stay safe and have a good time!
And to all the other readers, hope we'll keep in contact through this website blog thingy.
