The ultimate summer feeling, 3 color lino

Summer, that's swimming in the lakes, eating fruit from the garden, lots of sunshine and marshmallows evenings by the fire. Of that last one, I wanted to create a quick but fun print and some cards to send out. Feeling very inspired by a book that I was reading called...

Wednesday Wanderings (31)

All of a sudden summer was here. Out of nowhere, it seemed after a spring dominated by snow and hail. Sometimes it felt like summer would just skip a year. Avoiding Sweden because of COVID-19 perhaps. But no, after waiting so long, the days got crazy long with almost 24/7 sunlight...

Traveling with a Polaroid camera

I remember standing still in the middle of the enormous exhibition space in Brussels, probably turning a bit pale. Turned around. Mumbled: "I just realize that I forgot to take out my Polaroid camera when going through security...

Magic Machine

  One of the fun things of being a maker is that exciting moment when the final product is ready. When sketches become a real drawing or painting in a frame, a book that is ready to fly out. On these pictures, it's the little drawing or print that suddenly becomes...

Grief, loss of dogs, www.Fenne.be

Grief didn’t swallow me

Even when you expect it in some way, having to say goodbye always comes as a shock. Suddenly any later, any plans or dreams get canceled and although I couldn't imagine a life without any of them, the world kept turning. The snow would fall and fade out the colors,...
