Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
The subjects of my drawings are inspired by themes from literature, with a preference for the mythological and surreal.

I like the patience needed in the processes of traditional art.
Together with the fact that there's no 'undo'.
There's always the danger of ruining a drawing.
Therefore concentration is most important.

My other love is handlettering.
Typography has more restrictions than drawing, so it demands more technical control (and concentration).
For 'A map, not the territory', I used Googlemaps satellite-pictures; as image source and for the composition of the drawing. By making a drawing of these pictures, I made it into a map. You might say that this is the objective part of the drawing.
I added abstract forms to the drawing, to represent my personal associations with the area, that the map is a reference to. So that would be the subjective part of the drawing.

As a map this drawing is useless, because the area this map refers to, and my personal relation to it, are not given. This leaves the spectator with the drawing as is.
