The index sheet of a calendar for 2020. 12 black cats for 12 months. – Are you superstitious?- It started with the infinitely sad departure of my childhood tv hero Aart Staartjes. He crashed his scoot mobile at the age of 81. Calendar available on Amazon
My childhood tv hero Aart Staartjes. He crashed his scoot mobile at the age of 81. I saw him in a cafe last year, he was sitting across the table having a jenever. He had a twinkle in his eye, he looked good.
The painting was done in a tv show competition between 3 portrait painters. This is the winner, the image Aart thought reflected him best. He loved it.
Kim van den Enden is the artist. He sat live before her.
Watch the show Sterren op het doek (Stars on canvas) here.
Work from the portfolio of conceptual stylist Susanne Kennedy.
I love the way she paints an atmosphere with objects, light and color, composing enticing stories putting the characters in place.

Looking over our shoulders, zooming in.
Picture taken on film in the USA 1993. I made a contactsheet recently in a rented darkroom, when I was trying to get some photography work done. The negatives are from a trip to a village close to New York City and I was into notice boards and took pictures of church windows.
Was it the film I watched tonight, that made this catch my eye down in the archive? Manchester by the sea, an American family drama. Beautiful. Painful.
or today’s news about the Americans casting their glance towards the Middle East?
[I love the cars in the background. So dated, and I took this picture.]
A page for a bracelet on the webshop for BeadRoute I did. A moodboard witnessing the trend in 2015. -> The fashion designer Virgil Abloh seems to have concentrated on the right bottom corner. Think Off-White.-> The right bottom area in drawings is a suspicious corner, according to the art therapist in the Korean film Parasite. It tells you something, she says.
This is a moodboard I did for the webshop of BeadRoute. BeadRoute was a project I tried to pull off together with a friend who sources beads and fabrics in Mali. The elements of bracelet are made in Africa, of recycled flipflops, and put together in Amsterdam. Part of the profit would go to the African community, help them with the school.
This is about the bracelet CoffeeCake.
-> I didn’t want the traditional image of Africa and people in need. But an image of a modern life, fashion and media. Why you want one.
A very personal take on a bracelet, maybe not the best when supposed to please a large group of buyers.
A train of thought was sparked by an image illustrating an organisation that cares for the ocean, I stumbled upon it somewhere online.
The first image I stumbled upon. A logo for a company caring for oceanic life. It’s a shame I don’t have, can’t find, the whole image. Looks like a heart shape, but this is it.
It started a train of thought, in my visual oriented mind.
The image of the girl swimming I snapped watching the beginning of a James Bond movie. In TechniColor. It made me think of an image by Matisse, Icarus, from his groundbreaking book Jazz.
The bottom image is taken in Brittany, in a private church on the grounds of a medieval castle on a steep cliff overlooking the North Sea, beaten by the wind. I looked up and spotted the hole in the starry sky.
I like, the blue and gold making it magical…
(I wrote a post about the door in the scenery, A hole in the sky.)
