Federico Fellini

100 years | Mar 5, 2020

In January 2020 Federico Fellini would have turned 100. He's one of my favorite film directors.
So many wonderful movies and "Amarcord" is still my favorite. I made a portrait collage of him and a mailart stampsheet. 


Hydra neighbors

Back home again after a great week in the warm Greek sun.

Here's an old sketch of the view from our house on Hydra, overlooking the valley. I can see a friend's house and his gigantic swimming trunks drying on the clothes line in the sun. :-)

Took a short break, been working in the coal mines, with my hobbies...  

Here I am again, fiddling around with a trumpet player, trying to take him across the border to the Abstract Land. To the other side of the Wall of Sound.

Watercolor and ink.

Arsenal | Aug 26, 2019

The UK Premier League has started again, busy days to keep up with all matches on TV. Arsenal is my team and maybe this year we'll see the start of a long period of silverware...

Here is my take on Lucas Torreira, the new midfielder. He plays in the national team of Uruguay and is one of my eleven favorites in the Arsenal team...


Prose poem

This old painting, I call it "Henry & William", was used in 2005 as an illustration to my poem "XXL". You can read the poem here, it's about me and my son walking down the street... doesn't that sound interesting? :-)
