Bruges for New Years
a few days in Bruges a change of scenery 2022 was a great year for me and my businesses. I am not going to look back ( no, not another review ) at the year in this blogpost, but I wanted to give you an impression of the lovely places we went to: Bruges for […]
Sketchbook Tour! Also: I am on YouTube now.
I am beyond exited to finally make this post. And this isn’t just a phrase! I have been wanted to make a YouTube channel for a while now and I never did until now! The first video is a sketchbook tour of one of my small and everyday sketchbooks and it’s also in english. This […]
I cannot remember when I was sick the last time. With being sick, I don’t mean the occasional running nose, but literally sleeping all day and night, not being able to take stairs or sit for a very long time. So, I was sick just a little while ago and it came from nowhere and […]
New sketchbook, new format, new ideas.
Bigger and better. Onward. Right on time for the new year, I finished my old sketchbook. It was a selfbound sketchbook, with a lot of pages with different papers. I basically made the same sketchbook again after I liked my first one so much, which was also selfbound by me. It really got me going […]
For New Years we went to northern France to spend some days in the very quiet countryside. And indeed, it was very quiet and calming. We rented an old station hotel with french charm. At the end of the very long street, not very far from our place, was the old closed down train station. […]
A drawing of Leiden, resetting and not making plans

Finally fresh and brisk air, and sometimes mysterious morning fog. I like this quietness and coziness of this season. But no real autumn without any […]
the very last summer day
My friend Andrea came to see me in the Hague two weeks ago. on what I call the very last summer day. We got so lucky with the weather: definitely T-Shirt weather and sun out all day. Of course we had breakfast at the beach and we’re chillin in the dunes afterwards as you can […]
I made this Gouache Lettering after the Bundestag elections. I was hoping for a bigger change, but I guess that didn’t happen. To my surprise, I wasn’t paralyzed. Bad (global) news can really get me off track sometimes, so I was actually kind of prepared. But seeing how the different parties came together and openly […]
Bye Bremen, Hoi Den Haag
Well, yes. We left the country to chase some adventures in The Hague as expats. The big move happened in may and a lot of things have happened in the meantime. First of all, the kids started school ( yes , my daughter is going to school here with her 4 years ) and daycare. […]
