‘Old hat’… an illustration for Res Publica (many thanks to Zeyd Anwar). This one was made in ink and gouache, and the colour and text added in Photoshop. Here are the before and after versions.

Many thanks to Antonino Lupo.
“Hello mum, you alright? Yeah I’m OK thanks. Mum, is your laptop on? No? Oh, no worries. I was just wondering if you could look something up for me? Yes. Well, could you find out what the emergency number is here? That’s right, the emergency one. I can’t remember what they use here. Could you look it up and ring me back? Brilliant. No, no, everything’s fine. No really. I was just curious, that’s all. Okay. Lovely stuff. I’ll speak to you in a minute then. Thanks mum. Bye for now. Cheerio. Bye. Bye.”

This is getting towards my house—near the Zwarte Haan.
The fishtail palms and the orchid trees, they can give you that bleeding heart disease.
Another ink drawing from Nieuwe Bildtdijk.
Nieuwe Bildtdijk is a beautiful long road near where I live, in the northern part of Friesland—the bit of coast below the Frisian islands.
