Sketches for my sweetheart

The last shimmers of twilight, digital media
From a story by William Toy.

The ants formed long orderly rows, digital media
From a story by me.

Here lies a great friend, digital media
From a story by Matthew Gochnaur.

There’s a big oak tree. It’s summer, digital media
From a story by Matthew Gochnaur.

These are illustrations made for a collection of short stories called: When you're gone. The process I used is as follows: First I took a printed page with the original text and printed a colour photograph on it. Then I painted on that page, adding images and obscuring others. Then I scanned the page and changed the lighting and color balance digitally, sometimes adding elements from other images or from the original photograph. This results in a multi-layered image that incorporates the original text from each story.

Painters festival

Today I applied for a spot in this years Painters festival Montmartre in Sellingen, Groningen. This is a large arts fair that consists of both amateur and professional artists showing and selling their work to the public. The focus is mainly on painting, but all kinds of arts and crafts are represented. The festival will be held on the 11th of july, in and around the village green in the picturesque village of Sellingen. Here is a link to the website (only in dutch unfortunately). There is also an auction to benefit the organisation of the festival, where you can pick up genuine artworks at bargain prices. If you wish to have more information you can always contact me. I look forward to seeing you there!
