Letter from America

A postage stamp of child dictator, Kim Jong-un relaxing in his bathtub at home. Kim probably has a nicer looking bathtub than the one I’ve put him in, but hey, it’s my picture.

I made this after reading the BBC story: “North Korea could have missiles submarines in five years, says South”.

Plaza de Isabel II

Drawing of Plaza de Isabel II in Madrid.

The right side of the drawing is made in situ, but it was taking way too long so I drew the left side back at the hotel from a photo on my phone.

When I was 20 I lived in Madrid for about a year. This was my first time back.

Self-portrait in Osdorp

Another self-portrait from Osdorp. Drawn in pencil, graphite, charcoal, brush pen, pastel and acrylic. I really got into the A3-sized Cachet books by Daler-Rowney, with this recycled, wrapping paper-coloured, paper.
