    Cards for the Syrian refugee kiddo's

    Thanks to Artfinder investor Tatiana Ojjeh there is an art project for Syrian refugee children in Northern Lebanon. She invited us to send cards to the kids. My twopence. The message on the back is between me and the kids.

    Lithography; grinding a stone

    Lithography; grinding a stone

    Lithography: printing from a stone. A 200 year old process. At the time a great invention. Based on the fact hat oil and water don't mix, it was suddenly possible to achieve great tonal ranges as well as minute details. Print endless editions, because there is no mechanical wear. A stone can be use over and over again by grinding off he old image, which is what you see happening here.

    Life as a printmaker

    Life as a printmaker

    Printmaking. In any form of it, be it screenprinting, lithographing or in my case etching, the time spent on creativity is very little compared to the complete process. In etching the zinc plates have to be polished. Then covered in acid resistent in which the drawing is made. Multiple times this goes into the acid baths. Longer for the thicker lines. After which starts the process of printing proofs. Adding more details. More proofs. And then finally the printing of the edition.

    Gustav Raffelenbeul press

    Gustav Raffelenbeul press

    Although originally manufactured as a leather press, this piece of heavy equipment serves as an excellent etch/lino press. As the company shut down in 1946 it must well be over 70 years old. Expect to see the first results shortly.

    Really me at work.

    Here you see my arm. At work. Drawing. A work made on intuition rather than on planning. Although most I do fall in the latter category. This is a timelapse, so half an hour of work condensed in 3 minutes. Enjoy

    Where does it go?

    Where does it go?

    Some drawings call themselves into existence. They just start for no reason. From not a singular idea. Where it goes? Where it will end? No idea. It will just have to draw itself. And it will.

    Bistre; medium of the old masters

    Bistre; medium of the old masters

    Bistre is the soot of burnt nutshells or beachwood. Diluted with water it makes a very intense ink. In the old days its primary use was colouring furniture with it. The old masters such as Rembrandt and Da Vinci used it as a drawing ink. Various colours exist, albeit very basic: brown, red, yellow green and blue. In itself it is not lightfast, but with the use of modern day UV coatings we can now make it to last. Framing it behind museum-glass will further extends its life. It is still a fantastic ink to work with.

    First setup

    First setup

    Mostly, but not always, the outlined from a sketch gets inked. After which the washed ink and more details get added. In this case inks by Sennelier on watercolour paper.
