Sometimes when you're working on something you have the misfortune of liking a different sketch than your art directors or editors. Such as this one.
(The challenge is now of course to turn the sketch they like into an illustration you like as well)
A couple of months ago Seb Mesnard asked me to contribute to his Edward Scissorhands 20 anniversary blog. I made this piece for it: http://scissorhands20th.blogspot.com/2010/12/kim.html
As well as a blog Seb also organised an exhibition with the fine folks at Gallery Nucleus, who in 2009 also hosted the Where the Wild Things are exhibition based on Cory Godbey's blog: Terrible Yellow Eyes.
For the show I made a slightly altered version of my piece. (I printed it out without some of the snow and then painted it in again).
You can see that here, along with all the other fantastic pieces. http://www.gallerynucleus.com/gallery/exhibition/292
And recently I was asked by them to provide some work for their online exhibition Power in Numbers. I made these two pieces, and there are two others in the works!
And I'm happy to report all of those pieces are sold too!

Last night I finished four illustrations for the new Querido childrens poetry anthology. This is the third year I've participated on these wonderful books. Editing and art direction as always by the inestimable Ted van Lieshout.
I can't the show the complete illustrations until the book comes out in the summer, but here's a sneak peek.

Here's part of something I've been working on the past few days. Unfortunately I've kind of hit a wall with it. Frankly, it's a big mess, so I'm shelving it for the moment while I work on some commissioned (and paid!) work. Hopefully I can have this finished before autumn:)

Hey everyone, this has been a long time in the coming, but if you ever wanted to have a print of one my drawings for yourself, you can now get them from here: http://www.society6.com/studio/greenink/store They're totally not expensive, and this week the shipping on the smallest two sizes is free.
And if you do, you'll be helping me pay the rent!
I posted the drawing above before, but here's a cleaned up version.
In unrelated news, I've started a tumblr to collect interesting and inspiring pictures I find online: http://groeneinkt.tumblr.com/

As I've recently mentioned I moved to the United States a while ago, and not long after my arrival I married my fiancee. Then I got very sick and had to go the hospital for a week and about two weeks after that we went on our honeymoon. First we went to Pennsylvania to visit my wife's family and afterwards we went to New Orleans. Now I thought rural Pennsylvania was quite lovely, but New Orleans has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the US, if not the most beautiful.
So here are some sketches I did while there.
Labels: oodles of doodles

I completely forgot about this! This is a drawing I made last summer for singer Bram de Wijs. It's an illustration for his album Blah Blah Blah Yeah Yeah Yeah.
Seeing as how I've wanted to make some artwork for a cd for a long time I leapt at the opportunity.
It was rather fun to make something that didn't need to correspond strictly to the text or be suitable for young children.
