Screaming Hand

Day 179 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

In 1985 Jim Phillips created the Screaming Hand.
He was drawing his clenched left hand and was thinking about how powerful the hand is for artist with its gestures to express emotions.
He added the screaming mouth to make it even more powerful.
The rest is history.

Happy 30th anniversary!

For this piece i drew my left hand like Phillips did.
Best to learn from the master.

Sun tan

Day 175 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

End of this week the temperature’s going to the 30 degrees Celsius again.
So when catching them sunrays, apply ample sunscreen to avoid sunburn.
Ladies, you might even want to consider losing them tops to get an even sun tan.

Waterrat

Day 173 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

My wife loves to swim. A lot.
So i always call her a little waterrat. In Dutch (don’t know if the following applies to other countries as well) a waterrat means someone who loves to swim or being in the water no matter the circumstances.

Wear the Lightning

Day 171 of the 2015 Drawing challenge.

Things seem to ease out quicker than expected especially when left in hands of specialized craftsmen which gives me the opportunity to slowly squeeze in the drawing challenge again.

It really felt like ages that i drew something although it has been 9 days ago, never knew i missed so much untill i put the pen to paper today.

This is one is for the Nike Air Presto “Trouble at home” aka the Lightnings.
When these released i was at the Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium and to tie those two together i took the classic Metallica album “Ride the Lightning” and flipped it.
Rock on!

On hold

Due to a different workschedule, loads of design work and the start of our house renovation for the upcoming months the access to my workspace is limited.
So i have decided to put the drawing challenge on hold untill everything eases out.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
