Earth & Music

 ***

Two things that inspired me since I was born came together this week.
First my fascination for globes and maps. For the educational part of an upcoming exhibition in the museum where I'm working I'm redesigning the globe of Mercator, belgian and worldfamous for his maps, globes and projections, for kids. They will go home with their own little Mercator-globe...if I manage it this week to finish this project! And today just opened an exhibition in Sint-Niklaas about this man and his maps. Like I was waiting for it to inspire me more and more...I'm ready to make a nice educational plate of it.
Already tried a little print...later more!

And even it looks like I'm not drawing anymore, I do but still busy times in the museum...so time for my other inspiration : Music! We went to Utrecht (Nl) yesterday. Never been there, enjoyed the afternoon strolling around the lovely houses and little shops, drinking to much latte and eating lemoncake...to finish the day in Tivoli to pick up the concert of Lianne La Havas. All because we were to late to buy a ticket for her concert in Brussels...so luckily we are to live in the smallest country of the whole world...driving to another country for a concert isn't that hard. Lianne was just perfect and made our day/weekend! Discover her tunes and be overwhelmed by this brand new voice and enormous talent!
Time for a new week, a lot of work and still hoping to find some time to draw a gato ;)

Have a nice week wherever you are...we are on the same cosy globe! x
