At the fair

Jheronimus Bosch and the missus at the fair on the market square. (which is a triangle actually, in the city of Den Bosch) Here they take a peek at the side show. Bosch has painted a 'monster child' as a commmissioned work, which has gotten lost - it was a water colour painting on paper. It is because of descriptions in archives that we know it existed. And that there were freak shows at the time.
From my sketchbooks.

Judgement Day

This is a proposal for a silkscreen print on A3 format for a new Rotterdam-based art collective. We'll see how that works out. Anyway, the composition is based on 15th century Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden's Judgement Day.

Series "Homes" by Brian Spies

I fell in love with these pieces the moment I saw them at Brian's studio.  I thought to myself that they seem so haunted and beautiful in their simplicity.
I am hoping to interview him about this series.  I'll post that transcript.
