I am delighted to share with you the lines behind my illustrations. It is a huge challenge to convey the feeling of layering, of actual paint, of blood sweat and tears through digital technology. And yet that is exactly what I am aiming for... Let this be the beginning of an exciting journey, in an upside down world in which creativity is the only certainty.

SELF ISOLATION SELF PORTRAITS IN COLAB WITH SHOWSTUDIO
The Virus continues....SHOWstudio asked their illustrators again to draw themselves in an outfit after their choice and depict a self portrait in self isolation.
I stuck to LOEWE as my source of inspiration:
"I'm very fond of Loewe. I think Jonathan Anderson comes up with brilliant stuff. I actually can't stand deliberately created holes in clothes, but somehow in this design it seems organic. It reminded me- styling-wise - a bit of Prince (could have worn this maybe with holes at the butt back) but thinking Controversy period. which i personally LOVE. But mostly the idea of endlessness/ infinity behind these holes. At the height of the heart centre & belly area...so symbolic. As if the holes invite us/ the wearer to go in one's deepest depths. which we are forced to slightly during Lockdown- so it perfectly fits this project and sense of self isolation."
LIVE DRAWING THROUGH WEBCAM WITH ARTIST HELEN BULLOCK
My favorite position at the moment... I drew this picture after a brief of ELLE magazine. Never published but relevant today!

IN THE WINDOW
...that is where we can show our work- uncompromised- showing real drawings sometimes framed but mostly bare naked- so one can feel a drawing's vulnerability and delicacy.
THE WINDOW is part of our studio in Arnhem's city centre.
We will soon update and fill this section with pictures and footage of our personal and corona proof gallery.
