The Market is a graphic novel I am now busy with.
On the level of forms, this book is the 2D summary of what I have been busy with in 3D in theater lighting (and drawing of course)
I have launched a kickstarter campaign to develop the content, make 100 copies in Fablab Berlin and hand-bind them. Although the campaign was not successful, I have found enough support to carry out a downsized version of the original plan. The book will be finished 2017 spring.
If you wanted a copy in pre-sale, please contact me personally.
Studio 52nd is a great organisation. They set for themselves the goal that is the desire for many of us – the use and practise of the human voice. It is an organisation in Amsterdam East, they work with neighbourhood children, they provide them with the chance of writing their own piece for professional actors and directors, or in other projects they are given the chance to act with a professional.
These young writers put the unimaginable on paper. Superspider, rock-chicken who has stage fright, a blue stone who wants to be human, and a dancing bull, a rotten onion, and Hellmouth in the Rotten teeth restaurant, where the waiter is a fork, to mention just a few.
For my pleasure I was asked to draw backgrounds for these lively pieces, since each performance is a collection of 7-8 makers. The common scenes are done by a set designer, and the fast changing imaginary scenarios are drawn out and projected in the back of the set.
I introduce here a few of these drawings.
This is my little collection of drawings and paintings I felt comfortable with sharing from my past. I might find more..
