African family

Aquarel on paper (42×30)

I would like to share my first piece of art with you. This is where it all started, my love for art and my love for South-Africa.

My parents just came back from South-Africa and brought this with them. It was a tiny statue, bought from the African locals. It was love at first sight and I desperately wanted to use it as an example for an art piece. I gave it my own twist and turned it into a colorful drawing.



From creepy mannequin to Space villain

Charcoal on paper (70×110)

Last week’s art class we got a mannequin. We could go crazy and this is one of the 3 sketches I made that night.

I loved the position she was in, kind of to the side but not all the way, so you could see all of her face. What I like about this sketch was both the feminine side (the breasts) but also the badass short hair and the “censored” eyes (they were too creepy to draw), which gave her an almost out-of-space look. Almost as if they were glasses and laser beams could shoot out of her eyes any second.
