Illustrations, pencil drawings, paintings, photos... I like a lot of different styles and materials, so I try out everything and have a very varied gallery here.

If you're looking for more pictures I've made than the ones I've featured on the 1st page, check out the folders on the left, or click "browse" at the top left corner.

Sketch Fest turned four years old a few weeks ago, and in two weeks time the 50th Sketch Fest is happening! This will be a special one of 72 hours long (starting April 25), and lots of goodies. I'm not sure what Ellen has in mind exactly, but I'm donating a bunch of ACEOs for the prize pool. ;)
Come join us!

Here's the website (with countdown) where it's all happening:…

And the event page that will be used as a forum during Sketch Fest:…

I have a special folder in my gallery, to show you everything I posted here that is inspired by Sketch Fest prompts. If you have questions about Sketch Fest, don't hesitate to ask.

Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from the Netherlands!  I’ve always been fascinated with that place’s

history and culture. I stopped there for about an hour when I was on a European

tour and I’ve always wished we could have stayed longer! I would love to ride in one

of those canals!


I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own

country, much less anyone else's.  :(


I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world. Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, if I've

done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)


This update is about your home! Consider it a birthday gift!…


GOD bless

Interesting idea, and nice to read, thank you.

I've always been interested in history too; though my head won't keep much, a general history of my country I do have in there, unlike many these days so it seems. People don't seem to care. :( I think it's important not to forget, both good and bad.

I do feel our famous tolerance is lacking in the last decade, but it might also be that those who oppose just have the biggest mouths. But that's the case everywhere I fear.


Glad you liked it. :)

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

GOD bless you now and always.

Thank you. :)
I haven't done many knitting projects yet, I've done mostly yarn-bombing so far.
But I'm having fun knitting many things for charity lately, so I might actually create something worth sharing soon.
