Dandyano asked me to make him an iPad sleeve! He had no idea what he wanted on it or what colours or what ever so he just let me do what ever I wanted to do. This is what happens when you let me do what ever I want :’)! It’s a portait of him riding his cat through space, if that wasn’t clear enough. I painted it with acrylics mixed with textile medium on hand-dyed cotton and the lining is made out of a thick fleece-like fabric. I sure hope he likes it!

Someone recently showed me these amazing posters!! I CANNOT BELIEVE I didn’t know these yet. They were made in 1986 to promote milk in The Netherlands, and the slogan is a play on the normal milk-slogan “Melk. De witte motor.” (which means: Milk, the white engine – yeah, I know it sounds lame in English).

I seriously love these posters. I love their 50’s sci-fi vibe, the awesome aliens, the colors and the backdrop (like one of those highschool photos!). But most of all I love the awkwardness of the “alien” slogan. As if, if aliens could speak, they would speak Dutch but would replace every M with Gn. And not even that, because that would turn “Melk” into “Gnelk”. But somewhere, someone decided (I imagine this to be during a very serious business meeting) that the L needed to be replaced by an R as well. This just makes NO SENSE. And therefore I love it <3 And if you pronounce it it sounds so funny :’)

“Everything that would be good for the world”

The aim of this lecture is to give people with remarkable or unusual opinions a stage to share their ideas. This year the lecture was given by Tinkebell, whom we love.

Just a small post with pictures of things I just bought, things I like, things I am working on, things I just finished, things will not be boring for much longer and things I see from my window. Things, things, things. (Can you guess which movie I was watching without googleing?)

My brother has loved He-Man and the Masters of the Universe for as long as I can remember. When we were little he had loads of action figures and a flippin’ Castle Grayskull and what ever He-Man related junk he could get. (He still has a lot of those action figures displayed on his desk.) And as I see it as my personal job in life to give people childish junk, I made him a He-Man tie for his 33rd (!!!!!) birthday!

The lovely Merlin got me the prettiest present EVER when our dear little Johnny died. Can you believe how pretty this is?! I am still very sad about it and I miss him a lot but this softens the pain a little <3

Do you guys remember my PPDD animal drawings? Well! You probably did not know I drew those in one of these Moleskine notebooks which I absolutely love, and, I guess you did not know most of them GLITTER either?! I have used a lot of glitter and silver and gold paint in these drawings, but my scanner didn’t really show any of it. So, I have made some pictures (some in really weird angles) so you can see some sparkles!
