Illustrated Alphabet – challenge

This month (April 2019) the House of Illustration in London had a challenge. Everybody who wanted to, could participate in making an illustrated alphabet. Every day one letter had to be published on Twitter under the hashtag #illustratedalphabet.

Here’s the final collage of all 26 letters I created. My theme was: names of fluffy animals. Each letter was the beginning letter of an animal’s name in the Dutch language (very often that’s the same letter as in English).

Sharing Art for healthcare

This year I’m participating in the Art for Healthcare in Scotland project.

Artist from all over the world will be sending handmade original pieces of art in the form of a postcard to Edinburgh. All cards will appear in an exhibition and will be for sale. The revenues will go to a project in Scottish healthcare.

I submitted a color pencil remix of the famous Milkmaid by Vermeer.

Sharing art – drawing tweets

For some time I’ve been drawings to tweets by Miranda Keeling and share them on twitter with Miranda and others.

Now Miranda is holding an exhibition of several of these drawings from artists from all over the world. 5 of the drawings will be made by me. The exhibition will be in London during March 2019.

Sharing art – sketchbook project

Last week I finished my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project of the Brooklyn Art Library New York NY. It has arrived at the library and will soon appear in digitized form on their website. Meanwhile it’s already ready to have a look at in physical form at the library.

This project is a great way to share your art, as a physical sketchbook, with other people. You can find more information on the Sketchbook Project here: sketchbookproject

These are some of the drawings I added to the Sketchbook.

Milestone at DS106

Today number 2000 of the Daily Create Assignments (TDCs) was up on DS106.

The assignment was to share a milestone.
But … I just couldn’t do it, because, well …

See, DS106 is supposed to be for life. Milestones don’t really count.
There’ll be more coming everyday. Everyday until the last one.
That’s what’s meant with DS106 is #4life.

I applied for the CREATORIST BADGE

I’ve been doing the daily create assignments (TDCs) on DS106 for quite some time now.
You can find the TDCs which I’ve submitted over time on this page at DS106.

June special

This month, June 2017, though there’s a special CREATORIST badge available to all who complete all 30 TDCs. It’s Talky Tina who will give the badges away.

I’ll be applying for this badge today. I’ll post it here if and when I get the badge.


DS106 – Having fun with BS-generator

In the daily create assignment TDC1923 of DS106 we’re asked to use the bullshit generator to generate an inspirational text and use this text on an inspirational poster.
I got the text below after clicking the “reionize electrons” button (see far below in this post).

I made this poster using parts of the generated text and a remixed photo of some little blue flowers in our garden.

Inspirational poster


— here’s is the full text generated by the Bullshit generator

You and I are adventurers of the dreamtime.

Insight is the driver of energy. Beauty is the knowledge of inspiration, and of us.

Ego is born in the gap where choice has been excluded.

Imagine a redefining of what could be. We must develop ourselves and unify others. The dreamscape is approaching a tipping point.

The grid is bursting with a resonance cascade. This life is nothing short of a blossoming quantum leap of spiritual healing. To navigate the mission is to become one with it.

We exist as bio-feedback. The goal of supercharged waveforms is to plant the seeds of ecstasy rather than pain. Nothing is impossible.

If you have never experienced this explosion on a cosmic scale, it can be difficult to exist.

We are in the midst of a powerful unveiling of growth that will be a gateway to the galaxy itself. Humankind has nothing to lose. Throughout history, humans have been interacting with the quantum soup via transmissions.

Have you found your story? Entity, look within and empower yourself. How should you navigate this ever-present quantum soup?
