The combination of marks made on previous pages from my notepad and some wrinkles in the paper from spilling some coffee suddenly looked like a dragon to me. There you go....

Spilled some breakfast muesli - goji berry, I think - in just the right way to turn it into a ghostly face....

Learning some difficult dance move. It's kinda going ok but not quite. There is one particular point in the move where my mind just seems to be going blank. That's a tell-tale sign that I don't really know what I am supposed to do there and I'm just kinda faking it. Frustrating....

Hope it goes better tomorrow...

I think I know what you mean +T Wijé . When dancing the mind does go "blank" but in a different way. Here we were not really dancing yet, but figuring out how to do something we just learned in class. That's a much more conscious process. Once I get through that phase I can let go, like once you know how to drive you can drive while having a conversation with someone and still do everything you are supposed to do.
The "going blank" I experienced here is different: not really sure what I'm doing and just doing something, not really leading the move but going through the motions. 
(It's not a real problem, tho'. It's a natural part of learning something new...)

Wanted to keep this one black and white as well, but in the end I couldn't resist adding color....

+Gilliom Werner Claessens Ah wise is the artist who listens to his art. But yes that's pretty much how it works for me.

Story
Tagline
I try to create opportunities for long-distance eye contact. I am an artist. I read, I write and I draw.
Introduction

What does it mean to be an artist today?

It seems easier then ever to connect to people all over the world, to show your work and have it “liked”.

But how do you go from this instant but superficial contact to establishing true and meaningful connections?

Is it possible to make long-distance eye contact?


Is it possible to make art on your own terms, without desperately trying to please the masses nor some high-art establishment?

And if that’s possible, where do you keep finding the courage to be so beautifully selfish?
