Due to the COVID lock downs, I’ve started a project to translate the story ‘Bib bumps its head‘ into other languages and dialects with the help of volunteer native speakers all over the world.
I’ve learned a lot about the languages and the culture of the speakers through this project. Plus, now I’ve got over 40 versions of Bib’s story.
Here’s a world map of the languages Bib’s story has been translated to until now. I’m still searching the Internet to find people who’d be willing to help me with ‘new’ languages. E.g. there are no Native American languages of South and North America, nor of India and West Afrika. If you happen to know some one who could help me out, please leave a reaction below.
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).
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.
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.
