I started yesterday with my second doodle portrait. I have to make, in total, five portraits for the Young Art Festival 2011 where I was invited to join the art-exhibition. That's ofcourse just awesome :D They found me at the Kunstbende finals.

Because of the lack of time, I just traced the face on the paper with my computer screen. But I don't like doing that, so probably I won't do that anymore with the next portrait.
So, I'm going to update this post when I finished one. I've got only two weeks! So wish me luck.

Finished the first portrait of my sister! Made a new photo of Vera today :D I start with that one tomorrow...

Finished two more portraits this week. First I made Chib, because I didnt know how to begin with Vera's hair haha. But,  I found out that Chib's hair wasn't that easy as well.

Still, I'm glad how they both came out. Making the last one for now :D

Finished the last one today :D now I only have to put them in frames and they are ready to go :D
I worked exactly 2 weeks on these portraits, so I made it!!

For my graduation project I picked the assignment 'Ophelia'. Using a poem about Ophelia we had to make something visual. And it was important that you could 'see' the poem in your work.

Final work


'Kunstbende' is an annual competitions in the Netherlands. There are few catagories as dance, performance, singing and expo. I joined the category expo with a self portrait.
The preliminary round was on the 12th of February this year in Rotterdam. The theme this year was 'Illusion'.

My selfportrait is filled with a bunch of doodles, little random creatures. Together they form my face. So, if you stand a few meters away from the drawing you can clearly see my face. But if you come closer, you will find out that the drawing is a bit more complicated.
That is the illusion: if you see me for the first time, you can only see my face, you don't know anything about me. But if you get to know me better (walking closer to the portrait), you will find out my true me: a kind of chaotic person.

My face is just an illusion.

At first sight
I won the first price that day, and that meant I was going to the finals in Amsterdam with my face in April. I had to present my work on a stage in front of the audience and of course the jury. My portrait was projected on a big screen. Buuut, not really pretty unfortunately...

 Didn't win a price, but it is hanging together with the other winning entries at 'Kunstfactor', in Utrecht :D For one month.

Speedup painting

At our Highschool there is an annual show called 'Talent Time'. My friend Vera Williams and I made a speedup painting to participate in this talent show. One for the audition, and another one for the actual show.

Watch both of them below.


My first post on my artblog! I will introduce myself by posting some collages of drawings and other things I already made through the years.
