I received such nice responses to the last newsletter I sent about my temporary move to North Yorkshire! I have not been able to respond to all of them, but I have enjoyed reading them all, so thank you very much.
I will of course tell you more about this adventure when I get there.
Regarding work I have taken a step back to create a little more peace of mind, so there is not much news to report about my work this time. I'm still working on my new website, almost ready 🎉
But no worries, plenty of things to share. Are you ready? Let's go!
April in 4 photos
1) My firstceramics piece, and the second one is nearly done. The classes are now over and I will miss them. 2) I painted the kitchen wall pink. 3) My coach Krista's chicken gave me a cuddle. 4) Bram made this cake. Don't add extra sugar though, the speculoos is incredibly sweet in itself.
I get quite a few questions, via email or DM's. But I don't have time to answer all the questions. I only have two hands :) That's why I came up with something new, so I can still answer some questions and in a way that others also benefit from it: a kind of advice column on my blog. → Ask a question here.
THIS MONTH:“How to become an illustrator without experience?”
05 / BOEK A book I'm currently reading is Thinklike an artistby Will Gompertz. I'm making a lot of notes, always a good sign.
06 / FILM Saturday I went to the cinema with Bram (first time in ages) and we saw The Duke, a British feel-good film. Highly recommended!
07 / SERIES My ceramics teacher recommended Anatomy of a scandal(Netflix), and I finished it in just 3 days.
08 / ADVICE How to handle your to-do-list:
“For me, success is not a public thing. It’s a private thing. It’s when you have fewer and fewer regrets.”
That's it for this time! Now that the ceramics classes are over, I wanted to take up another hobby, so I'm going swimming this week. See if I can still do it ;) Feel free let me know what you think of this newsletter. Speak soon!
