Workshop Relief printing with Stencils

Take a look at the proces at the ' woodblock print + printing with stencils - workshop', I followed today in my own academy, teached by my colleague Goedele Peeters.
After missing the Workshop given by Susan Goethel Campbell from Detroit, USA, luckily I could join this 'afterparty' with the same techniques.
This was just a briljant day...glad to experienced this new island in the printing world!
Cutting some copies, bringing ink onto woodblocks, pasting the stencils on the wood and start printing and playing with all kind of possibilities...and in the end adding some finishing touch with a brush and parts of stencils. it!!!
What do you think?

Con todo mi amor

Viajar duro mi amor. Te quiero!
How would it feel to be at the same moment in two different worlds?
I'm living these days with some kind of this emotion.
Days are very cold and dark here, overthere it is warm and bright!
Worlds can help each other, a world can help me surviving the other one, a world can hold me down of enjoying the other's late, I'm tired, I'm missing him!

Classes for kids

This doodle is one of the examples how I'm preparing lessons for the kids at the academy. Love to doodling with the tablet...and that way my idea can grow on and on.

One week

The same place somewhere in Antwerp with a difference of one week. And I rediscovered this song of David Byrne and Brian Eno. Fascinating video!

Resting seeds

As a kind of ritual I made these bags for all the gifts my garden left to me. That way they will stay dry and fresh to give them all a life next spring! But that is still long to go...I'm ready for the winter! And you?

Home is...

...where I lay down my muffin-cat.

After a whole day in a clinical landscape for a very short surgery I'm so glad to can go back home...receive the warmth and love of my two men and make some delicious muffins to tell them how I need them and how lucky we are to be healthy and happy ever after.
