Making a new picturebook

Mieke Driessen and I started working on our second childrensbook about Stinkie. It's a story about animals wanting to celebrate christmas with a nice christmas tree. Here's a little sketch for on of the characters: Little Rat.

First picturebook will be in store this summer and is a story (written by Annemiek Pecht) about 'Sinterklaas', published by Clavis.

Tea time collages

Tea time is still one of my favourite subjects: sharing stories, eating homemade cookies and spending qualitytime with friends. Here are a few collages I made, as a tribute to tea time.

Lamp of plastics, broken stuff, garbage & childhood memories

When I was in Paris 1,5 year ago I visited a gallery that showed art made of plastic disposed kitchen utensils. The idea stuck with me, and I've been collecting plastics and broken toys since then, hoping to make a curtain of plastics. After all this time collecting it's still not enough to make a curtain, but it was enough for two lamps:

A few weeks ago I made these 2 lamps. One for the bathroom, in reds, oranges and pinks that go wonderfull with the red walls and the Hedof screenprint.

The other one is a lot bigger and is one of the two lamps above the desk in my workroom. With stuff like: milkbottle caps, emptied desertcups, old watch bought in Barcelona, broken toys, smurfs, spongebob, badminton shuttle, plastic banana, soccer puppet, plastic deer, etc.
