I love Abes work. Moreover, I love his original take on Middle Earth. He has that ability to turn pivotal scenes into beautiful illustr...

Cover I made for the magazine of the Dutch Tolkien Society 'Unquendor'. The subject was free, so I picked one I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Wait, what happened with practice piece # 2 & 3... Well, they sucked. Will do more of these. I love how they do not distract me with colour. :D

But anyway... what do you suppose transpires here, in these shady alleys!?

Exciting times

Hello dear artsy friends,

I was asked by an American writer to produce 16 pencil illustration (B&W) for her fantasy novell, landscapes all. Needless to say I am very excited about this! :happybounce: At the moment we are in the beginning stages of the project, having four concepts approved and the first drawing almost finished.

It is great to return to pencil work (although I miss my colour work right now ;) ). I simply do not have the time next to some other freelance design jobs, a full time day job and a family. Hope I can squeeze in some speedies every once in a while for your and my entertainment.

Anyway, as soon as I have a green light to share the pieces I will ofcourse do so.

Also almost done with my website/blog. Will post link asap.

Enjoy the spring you northern hemishpere people! (and the autumn for you southerners ;) )

Oh, and before I forget. I have a lot of new watchers and just maybe I forgot to thank some of you. So thank you, your support is very much appreciated! :handshake:

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from the Netherlands!  I’ve always been fascinated with that place’s history

and culture. I stopped there for about an hour when I was on a European tour and I’ve always wished we could have stayed longer! I would love to ride in one of those canals!

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

This update is about your home!…

GOD bless you now and always.

Thank you for your kind words and well wishes! Much appreciated.

I know that everyone likes to know that someone is thinking about them,
especially on their birthday! That’s why I like to spread birthday cheer!

GOD bless
