Process, businesscards, painting on leather

An old book full of experiments.

Red pencil on paper. Old sketch for a mural.

Instagram

These last months I've been posting a lot more process pictures on my Instagram instead of my blog. It's just easier to share, people don't have to log in to comment, so it makes everything a lot quicker. Take a look here and join.


MT Washi tape from Japan. Mechanical pencil from Pilot. Elephant from Spain.
 New businesscards

When I changed my website from .nl to .com I really needed to order some new businesscards. 
Finally I could put my new logo on it. Did you know I started my business in july 2008 and I never could design my own logo? If you are making things for other people it seems a lot easier than making something so permanent for yourself. 
 Anyway, I'm very satisfied with it and I didn't want it earlier.



Painting on leather

My current project is quite interesting to me, because I'm going to paint a handmade Leica cover. 
I had to order leather paint from Angelus, they don't sell it in your ordinary art supply store.
My first impression is very good. I was a bit worried that the paint wasn't thin enough for this kind of surface, but as you can see, even thin lines are possible.

I'm making more video's on YouTube, so if you want to see me paint the Leica cover, come on over to the channel and subscribe. It will be online soon!

 

Alice in Wonderland

This is a sketch of Alice in Wonderland painting that I still have to tweak. 
I broke my hand while I was in Spain working on it and although I 'finished' it, I couldn't give it my all. Wearing plaster, working with a painful hand, it just wasn't right. So I'm going to look at it again and add those changes!
