As you can see, I am experimenting with combining text and images that have nothing to do with each other.

I was constantly struggling to with coming up with illustrations that go with a text. But then I thought, why? The illustrations are there to break the block of text and to give your eye a place to linger. All it has to be is an illustration, any illustration.

So I decided to hand-write my letters and to use that as a place to practice drawing also. I love to draw from reference. Maybe that is all it has to be, you know? Over the past few years, I have been slowly getting myself to over-think less.

Also, I decided to color this one. I had held a poll: line art, line art with hatching, or line art with color? All three got around one third of the votes. So I am trying to see what happens if I try to punch up the art with color a bit.

Color! Oomph! Another problem to solve.

Marshall Vandruff is providing another short course, this time on Heinrich Kley.

I think he may be one of the best art teachers alive at the moment and I learned a lot each time I did a course with him. He’s retiring soon, so if you are interested in that kind of thing, do consider grabbing this opportunity. It’s rather affordable.
