Jakarta street drawing—print

A print of my Jakarta street drawing at 57 x 9 inches on its way to Feny in Portland. Thank you Feny.

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.

Amsterdam rain

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.

Hemkade

Sketch of Hemkade, part of Amsterdam’s industrial north west, seen from across the North Sea Canal at Zaandam. Drawn in grey ink, charcoal, gel pen and coloured pencil.

Plaza de Isabel II

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.
