This is a print of a long (83 x 12 inches) pen & ink drawing I made in 1998 for a book about Jakarta, but which was never used in the end. Drawn with a Rotring Isograph if you remember them. Great pens. If you’re into pens.
‘Streetview‘ print—a signed print at 9 by 26 inches on its way from Etsy to sweet Caroline in Bournemouth in England. Thank you Caroline. Printed on 230gsm Olmec Fine Art Paper by King of Herrings fine art printers in Leeuwarden.
Somewhere in Groningen from yesterday’s sketchcrawl with the Urban Sketchers Netherlands. It was pretty cold, so I didn’t sketch or crawl too much. But I found a sweet spot in a cafe, and drew this from the window.
Cycling through the Amsterdam rain is no fun. This picture is about that. In the basket in front of you is your shopping from Albert Heijn. It wasn’t raining when you got to the supermarket, but it’s chucking it down now. Going home in the rain is better than going out in the rain though. Better by kilometres.
Drawing of Plaza de Isabel II in Madrid. I drew the right side in situ, but it was taking way too long so I drew the left side from a photo back at the hotel. When I was 20 I lived in Madrid for about a year. This was my first time back. Like they always say, everything literally looked smaller. Why is that? I’m no physically bigger than I was when I was 20.
