Quick mindless sketch. It kinda reminds me of Harrison Ford. 

Have a good night (or day), pretty faces.

Detail of a study last year. I gotta keep it in my mind to work on it at some point. Mentally added to the number of possible series. After the solo show of course.

Ideas. Rough sketches.
Everybody has that one idea they didn’t take a note of and is forever forgotten, right?

I’m borrowing Portishead’s line for this one:
"And If I should fall, would you hold me?"

I’m listening to Portishead and remembered this.

About still life.

I don’t get the fact that rarely you find someone who thinks still life is macabre. To me it’s the most macabre form of art. You have something dead thus essentially rotting, arranged in the exact manner you want and often depicted in vibrant colours and high contrast as if to shake any thought of the staged display of death in front of you. I find it pretentious, dishonest and misleading. Even the english term is wrong. I prefer the greek, “νεκρή φύση”, which means “dead nature” and exists as a term in some other languages as well.

I forgot to mention: If there is rotting flesh, fruit, flowers or a skull or bones, it is mighty fine.
