Argentina in Pixels

I made a Flickr album of the pictures I took with my Gameboy Camera in Argentina. I went there for three weeks with my brother. A very blessed trip!
You can browse with the left and right arrows. When you click on a picture, you'll go to the Flickr page to see the large size (I resized them to a larger format).

Argentina in Pixels

Transferring these pictures to a PC took me a while to figure out, but I finally succeeded!
I also uploaded a very small selection of 'regular' pictures I took with my DSLR camera to my Flickr account.

Also, I'm still waiting for my 3D printer :(

Nyanside Out up for voting on Threadless

I also uploaded it to Threadless so it can get a chance to be printed:


Also, I think I'm going to stop making T-shirt designs and focus on other stuff. It seems like the Threadless thing isn't really working out anymore. Getting a print was a big surprise and I'm really thankful for it, but I have been investing a lot of free time in making these designs with little reward. Of course it helped me a tremendous amount in terms of artistic/technical progress (and also in dealing with rejection/feedback), but the more I make these designs the less rewarding it feels. Especially when I'm starting to get the feeling that I should invest that time in other things. There is a new feature, called 'artist shops', coming up soon. But that probably won't be very successful for me, as it will be the same concept as Teepublic (my sales there aren't very noteworthy).
As I'm a creative person I'll still be making things and exploring art in all kinds of ways, but for the moment I have lost my interest in the t-shirt design community a bit. That's it I guess... maybe I'll be back after a while, who knows.

But don't forget: never stop creating!

Second Tumblr

I started a sedcond Tumblr: how great Thou ART

This is where I will post all the drawings/sketches/thoughts/... I make during my solitude time, or when I particularly feel like worship through art. It's something I'm trying out, and I'm still sort of exploring what it means and finding out what works and what doesn't.
So, yes, this Tumblr will be quite 'religously tinted', whatever that may mean.

Also, I'm really excited to go see Inside Out. Curious to see what Pixar made of it. It's good to see that there are still original stories being released in stead of remakes/sequels/adaptations.

SALT sketches

These are some sketches I made at the SALT conference (OM Arts conference in Zaventem).
Most of them are of participants.




Also, I need some time to rest, think and pray. Things have been a bit too busy lately... 
Thankfully there's a holiday period coming up!

April-May Sketches

Here are some sketches from April and May:

These were from the beach (Koksijde-Bad). 
Weather was very good, lots of sun, not too much wind.
Perfect for some family time.









I made these in the Flanders Fields museum. We went through quite fast because we had to pick up some Westvleteren! Very good museum though, everything is quite high-tech and well done.



And these were made during the Live It! conference in Zelhem, Netherlands. It was on a huge camping ground and there was a lake, with a small sandy beach and those tiny digging machines for children. Very relaxing with all the birds and surrounding nature.
 I bought this sketchbook to try out something new, to work more with white values.


 


Also, weather's been kind of random lately...

Tales of Alethrion monster (#toamonster)

This is the monster I drew for the Tales of Alethrion monster design competition:




And, of course I had to be crazy enough to make a 20 page comic that tells the story of how Mik and Ken got into a fight with it. click on the first image for an easier read:






















(sorry for the huge post)

I know I posted this on my Tumblr, but I couldn't resist posting it here as well.
And yes, I'm a big fan of what they're making.


Also, I'll be in the Netherlands for a whole week, attending the Live it! conference with the Young Staff Network I'm in.
