Martin

Martin was on a Dutch language course I was taking. His mum was also doing the course, and during the break they used to go out and smoke together. I could never imagine smoking with my mum.

This is drawn in pencil, graphite and blue and green pastel pencils.

Michelle’s prosthetic hand

Drawing of Michelle’s prosthetic hand in pencil, red pencil, white pencil and red brush pen. I’m not sure exactly how Michelle came to own this prosthetic hand. She still has two real hands as far as I know.

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.
