The Bull

Pablo Picasso, an inspiration for everyone who touches art. Anyone who loves creating. For many people who want to live life and I hope not for people who want to love. He wasn’t the best person to love, I can imagine. Although that is not necessarily true, there is probably no one more in love with creating than Picasso was in his lifetime.

The bull, one of Picasso’s favorite subjects. His first known drawing was one of bull fighting, a “sport” he enjoyed his whole life.
He often drew or painted himself as a Minotaur, a human body with the head of a bull, sometimes aggressively making love with one of his muses.

In celebration of his Birthday I made four new posters.
I made this bull a couple of months ago inspired by a scene from ‘Visit to Picasso’, a documentary by Paul Haesaert. At that time I was only making abstract work and I wanted to challenge myself to draw a bull in as little lines as possible. I needed 10 lines, thats 10 more in comparison to Picasso.
Today, 136 years ago Pablo was born.
The Posters are available in my shop!

First steps

So here it is, my first newsletter.
Just a bit of information about what is happening in my life, about my health and what direction my art is going.

I’m glad to announce that I became part of the Paper Artist Collective!

Its also my birthday today, so double the reason to celebrate!

My health seems to get better little by little, I’m on a strict diet, doing different exercises every day and it really seems to help. I’m far from being healthy but I’m grateful for every step.  There finally seems to be light at the and of this dark tunnel.
The Spring also helps, the weather is getting nicer and the sun always give me more energy.

My art is going great, I’m very happy my website is online.
I also have some new series coming, they will be for sale in the coming month!

I discovered that the paper I used in my first colored pieces is losing a bit of its color in the sun, I’m in search for better paper and I think I found a brand that fits my needs, I’m now in the process of testing them in the sun 😉
