Home in Caraz

Arrived in the arms of our beloved ones on this side of the planet. It feels special, warm and simply I cannot discribe this feeling after missing them all 2 years long.
This is a nut we took out of the garden and she just translated my feeling I had today when we finally did came 'home'!

For drawings I have to find just a good way as we doesn't have a scanner here, but in some days I will have some solution :), hope these pictures can tell you a little bit what I'm feeling!

Schoolyear finished! My head sooo tired after 10 months of hard work.
This day is the last one in Belgium. It was hard enough and I'm dreaming now of sleeping 12 hours long! I will tell you soon what happend in those hours...
I waited for this moment like two years long...
See you back soon on the other side of the world!

Peruvian colors, peruvian thoughts

New materials I'm very proud of, can't wait to start drawing very soon...in Peru!


For all my neighbours I'm working on a poster for their little festival on the end of the summer in august. Because of little budget it has to be made in grayscale, so I thought, may'be we could organize a color-contest for all those children in this street. Good idea?

Yesterday I was watching 'Home'...and one of the thousands images that touched me was a whale swimming on his back and playing with his enormous body in the huge ocean...I made this one today as I cannot forget that special moment in the movie.

Waterloo - 2009

Incredible 'Scottish' legs in Waterloo, where they are holding this weekend a revival of the most legendary battle in Europe ever in the year 1815...

Soon I will work in a totally diferent atmosphere as I will leave belgium for two months to return to the family in Peru. Also my still growing room where I create many of the 'el dibujo del gato-drawings', I will say goodbye for that period. Time to re-inspirate myself. Although, before leaving, still some things to finish, like a poster for a festival in our very charming street.

The name of my blog isn't just some name. My love for cats in general is huge. May'be I was a cat in another life, may'be my name isn't coincidence, may'be I will return as a cat in a next life, who knows?This is Toulouse, the cat from our neighbours...she is very charming like all the cat-creatures and inspires me every day!

A stampy cat

She decorated the giftpaper with the shirt inside...although her eyes are very creepy she has a heart of gold! :)


Allemaal superbedankt voor die schone woorden...ik heb er gewoon zoveel plezier aan gehad om het te maken en sinds vanavond heeft het truitje zijn bestemming bereikt en het is ontvangen met een hartverwarmende gil...ik ben zo gelukkig!

Thanks to everyone for those nice comments...I just enjoyed it so much and since this evening this piece of creation has arrived on his destination and it felt very good!

For a little boy

I was working the whole afternoon on the marvellous machine of my mom to finish this gift for the newborn son of a friend.I'm so crazy now to do this more, so after the huge vacation I think it's time to go and boy a machine like that so that I can make more funny shirts like this one. Visitors, let me know what you think of it as it is my first one I've ever made. I really appreciate all your comments whenever they come to me!...Thanks x Kathy

Dank je wel lieve mama voor het lenen van jouw super-machine, jouw mooie garen en je geduld met mij... :)

Historious dogs

Very little time to draw these days although I'm very busy with teaching art to my 'little ones', like I did today. Better then a bad drawing of me is a marvellous drawing of one of these little ones of 8 years old! Still they are not finished 'the dogs' but with this action of giving them a body in an historious theme it seems to me that we will have such a funny result!
More work from my little students? Watch THIS!

Flamenco-legs! Piernas de flamenco!

Yesterday was a world full of flamenco, horses, churros, paella, and lots of dancing shoes between the smell of fried fish and chicken, overwhelmed by the minted flavour of thousand mojitos...what a world, what a sunday...all that to forget that boring morning of european elections!...Viva la feria Andaluza! Muchas gracias a nuestros queridos amigos S. y J. para esta tarde tan bonito y ...rrrico!

I'm just searching my way in drawing and painting over 'gesso'. It feels very good but still I'm not 100% happy with my results...to detailistic just doesn't work on that surface... but one thing is sure...she is so wild of the cherry's she bought today...she's craving for it!

For my dad especially I made his very own businesscards for his selfmade 'trainworld' in his garden. A very early fathersday-gift and he gave me that hug like only fathers can do.... :-)

The result of global warming on our cats at home...
These days don't know what's happening, I cannot use sunny colors, although the sun is here everyday, I cannot draw bigger than this little one...I' m stucked in my head from too many work, a too busy year...I need very urgent a huge break. The good news is that just that break is coming very soon and that my inspiration will grow a hundred miles faster a day once it will be July... My apologizes for my poor blogging and although thanks for them who write me all the time such nice words! Thanks a lot!

Between Rio and Paris

I cannot think away of that disaster that happend with the flight that didn't arrived this morning in Paris coming from Rio. The more I think, the more I am imagining what happend and what's happening now on this moment. Are there still some peoples alive? Can somebody hear or see them?... It makes me feel soooo cold...

For all those families who are hit by this terrible flight.
