Earlier this month one of my friends on Facebook posted a photo of some very cute crafts she had received from someone. They were sent to her as part of a Craft it Forward Project. Craft it Forward is based on the idea of Pay it Forward: you make something for other people, and they [...]
I also made a drawing for Nienke’s birthday in the style of Connected. It has the same basic shape with the focal circle in the middle and the detail panels surrounded by a knotwork border. I decided to do a drawing after Nien expressed how much she liked Connected. I chose to put a Tree [...]
The nameless Pagan thing is done, and has a name. It is called Connected. Here’s pictures of the process and the end result. Excuse the somewhat crappy quality of the last picture, I hadn’t realised the shot wasn’t very good before now.
Here’s some pictures of Lines III: Dreamscape. After inking the water painted result I added some more drawings of various pop culture related things that are meaningful to me. See if you can find (and identify) them all? The last few days I’ve been burying myself into deciding what symbolism and decoratives to use [...]
I’m really enjoying the pencil and paper spirit that has taken hold of me. Lines III: Dreamscape is mostly finished. I coloured it with water colour pencils, then painted over that with water and inked the lines with a fine liner (picture later, they’re still on my phone). I’m considering watering it once more, but [...]

I named this work Lines I: Tubular and today I’ve been sketching Lines II: Mother Earth and Lines III: Dreamscape. I haven’t [...]
For the first time in ages, I’ve been feeling inclined to draw. I first noticed it earlier this week while reading a book in which the main character drew. I got to thinking it had been quite a while and then it started itching inside. Except I didn’t know what I wanted to draw. Then [...]
First installment of the second 100 Things… series: 100 quotes that I find inspirational. Quotes gathered from all over the place, graphics made by me, inspired by minimalism.
Walking @ Lauwersoog with Eva, Gregorius, Nienke and Tessa. From left to right: the tree that Nienke threw Gregorius’ toy into, Eva & Nienke trying to get it out, and continuing the walk. Fabric Day at Verhildersum. Bags of coloured wool, an awesome! quilt, and a display of tin figurines in historical clothing. [...]
When I got my iPhone last October, my old phone became my Mom’s new phone. However, I think I’ve dropped it a little too much over the two years I had it, since over the last week the screen started shorting out. Mom figured this would be a nice time to get a new phone, [...]
