1. process of this drawing - http://blog.loish.net/post/79583068924/self-portrait-turned-out-a-bit-cartoony !

    For this image, I used photoshop CS5.1 in combination with a wacom Intuos4 tablet. The brush I used was the standard 'oil pastel large' brush that comes with photoshop, with flow on about 16% and opacity on 100%. I started out with an A4 sized canvas. I drew the image using a mirror as reference.

  2. I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass' voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one's taste and one's skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira's interview - using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.

    I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt about his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass' message isn't only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.

    THANK YOU
    Ira Glass, whom I've never met in real life, but who had such a big influence on my development. Thank you for telling beginners what nobody else does.

  3. What do words like "craft" and "skill" mean in 2011? That is one of the questions that the exhibition ‘Power of Making’ seeks to answer. This film delves into the working lives of four makers: shoe designer Marloes ten Bhömer, crochetdermist Shauna Richardson, artist, curator and glass designer Matt Durran and flute-maker Stephen Wessel. It uncovers processes of thought and making that are as fascinating, complex and contemporary as the exhibition itself.
