schilderij voor Niranjan

Schilderij op verzoek, voor een jongetje op Manhattan. Hij is dol op pythons, adelaar, cheetahs, luipaarden en puma's. O ja, en mieren, mieren zijn grappig. Ook kan hij niet stoppen met lezen in zijn 'captain underpants' boek. Maar het aller aller liefste speelt hij in de sneeuw. Of nee...wacht....het aller aller liefste is zijn sneeuw luipaardje, die is zo zacht, hij kan echt niet zonder hem slapen.

Illustration Friday: URBAN

Illustration Friday's theme this week is: URBAN.

Also this week Manhattan is covered with these true words:

"Raising a baby in an NYC apartment is like growing an oak tree in a thimble" 
An other brilliant ad for the Manhattan Mini Storage company.

As a Manhattan mom this hits home. You just gotta get real creative to find room to play. But there is, there really is!! I made a drawing to inspire all you kids out there!! Just get out there. Get yourself some chalk: there's enough room to draw!

cloudgazing at the School of Visual Arts

Yesterday I had one of my last classes at the School of Visual Arts. One of things I am gonna miss when moving from New York this summer....That's for sure!

This is the piece I worked on in class yesterday. I had fun cloudgazing in watercolor last night. 

Today I will will make time to do some real cloudgazing in Central Park.

Illustration Friday: Yesterday

This weeks theme on the illustration Friday blog was Yesterday. Now I grew up living with someone with a (pretty serious) Beatles obsession. So there's no other thing I can possibly come up with when the word "yesterday" is mentioned.....
Okay, okay, and I'll admit I have somewhat of a (pretty serious) african animal obsession...

So I am afraid this little sketch was an accident just waiting to happen :D

The Hat-seller and the Monkeys

I created an activity book for a a theater company: Play Me A Story. They perform in New York with interactive musical stories for children. They created a wonderful playfull imaginative version of the old fable of 'the hat seller and the monkeys'. 
It was a lot of fun creating a coloring book for this musical performance. Hope lot's of children will enjoy their musical stories together with my drawings :D

Side stepping to graphic design...

....but still with elephants ;)

Made this invitation for a Bollywood style party at MMS school, together with graphic designer Jenni Meyer. It's fun to do something different for once.
