take the colorful road

Today my parents would have had their birthdays. My father would have turned 90 years old and my mother 93. They are still missed a lot. But today we also remember what they gave us. For instance they gave us a whole bunch of brothers and sisters with whom we can share life and memories. But they also gave us a way of looking at life like it is a colorful road, where there is a lot of interesting stuff and people to see and where stories are spread all over the place.

I am forever grateful for that. Thanks Mom and Dad!

have nice cup of tea, love!

‘Have a nice cup of tea, love!’

I made this one in honour of Heather and Jan, who came to visit me the other day. We had a conversation about the friendlyness in the English language.

This is a paper collage and drawing in which I later put some of my patterns. I reworked that again digital. A whole lot of work for one image and I think there is some more work to do on this one. It is funny: the more I know about drawing, scanning and digital reworking the longer it takes to finish a piece of art.

sometimes it is difficult to finish a project

In 1999 I wrote a small story that accompagnied a couple of sketches like the second one you see here. Over the years I have rewritten and redrawn this story time and time again. Two years ago I was sure it was finished and ready for publication.

However I am working on it again. In the 2019 version the second image is replaced with the first one.

It is time to wrap this baby up, Eyck!
