I have my sketchbooks to try out new ideas. When I'm happy with it, I take a nice sheet of paper and do the whole thing over again. This drawing is my representation of paradise. The words on the left and right are translations of the word 'paradise' in different languages of the world. A lot of people ask me how many pigment liners I use for one drawing like this so I put it to the test and, although this piece is quite big (50 x 70 cm), I only used one fineline, just at the finish starting a second one.
This is a - nearly finished - drawing from a collection of bottle caps. I only used 3 different sizes of black pigment liners. Why did I choose for crown corks? Because there's such a big variety of type in them. It made me reflect on the fact that every design, how simple it may look, is carefully thought of. And there's only limited space! I learned a lot about type by making this drawing.
A few weeks ago, I posted this drawing of a chicken. Now I finished my sketchbook page by adding the lyrics of a popular song.
