UPDATE – march 29
What an event… The Post-it Project was a big success. In 4 days a wall was filled with 136 Post-its. And there were people to talk with, lots of people who came doing the Art Walk to enjoy the art here. My oh my, did I do a lot of talking these days..
Many people took some time to contribute to my Post-it Project… Thanks!!!

March 23, 24, 26 and 27 the annual ArtWalk took place in Competa, Andalucía (Spain). I joined the event for the first time, and made a site-specific installation on the wall!
During these four days, I made Post-It drawings and paintings. And in this time, the whole wall was covered with Post-It art.
But that is not all… I invited the visitor to participate. Everyone got a chance to work with me and my materials on this wall of art. Art is for, and from the people. Everyone is the artist in my installation.
Some people contributed with sending me inspiration for the Post-it Art. Thank you all!
Do you want me to inform you about upcoming events like this, so you can join next time?
Pippi is my hero, and she is… but this Post-it I made with inspiration of a photograph of Pippi, sent by a good friend. To be honest… it was the very last Post-it I draw… And I was exhausted!
The plan was to draw her portrait but once in a while you have to give yourself a break… don’t you think? Especially after four long days of talking AND drawing at the same time (most of the time)…
Another dear friend sent me the inspiration of this Post-it. A beautiful text from which I used the last words in the drawing. -SOLD-
A well known comic-illustrator from Washington DC sent me the inspiration on this particular Post-it. It was a photograph of a broken signal in a metro station. He was surprised to see I discovered a bird in the light. It encouraged him to watch the sign closer the next time he passed it.
Yes… and also for sale!
I had a very intense conversation with two visitors on my last solo-exhibition. I am happy to still have contact with them, they are so funny. One of them sent me a sketch from the hand of the other, as inspiration… and as a surprise.
No surprise that this one is for sale too, huh?
I just loooove these ones… made by an old Spanish man. Standing with stick at my table and drawing them in 30 seconds each. Wish I could sell them too but sorry.. I left them in Cómpeta, for the hombre to pick it up at the gallery..
This post it contains a text I received from another dear friend. A beautiful text to start your day with :) So why don’t you buy it?
The daughter of a friend, it looks like she’s playing Little Red Ridinghood with a dishcloth. That’s my fault ;) and the freedom of the artist. She was playing Knight with a real silver armor headthingy. Like to buy this cute one? Click here
This is Jamie, owner of a local antique store. He came back for another portrait. If you’d like to buy this Post-it, I’ll have to contact Jamie first because he was very eager to get it himself.
Anyway, I discovered it is not so easy portraying people on such small format, in less than 10 minutes. But I’m always exited when the portrait resembles the person!
Wooops… there was the hombre again! I just loved to see him drawing this in 30 seconds.
Rebecca and her little sister kept coming back to draw more and more beautiful Post-its… I enjoyed the presence of drawing children at my table. And am jealous at their productivity!
A few days after the terrible drama in Antwerp, I was asked to draw something in the colors of the Belgian flag. ‘Mis sentimientos’ is also for sale.
An old friend sent me two texts, I used one of them to draw this Post-it. If you’re a cat person, you must recognize the feeling of lying at your cat’s feet. -SOLD-
This figure looks like someone out of Rembrandts paintings. Except the hand… LIKE this one? Why not buy it?
Or do you prefer this one? Free impression of Cómpeta.
Very delighted to meet colleague artist Saad Ali again after ten years! Saad is also for sale, did you know? Buy him.
Just a visitor of the ArtWalk. But she’s for sale too!
My mum told me she stepped out of their camper, saw the misty full moon and heard the sound of an owl. To share in this feeling… buy it here
O yeah.. almost forgot. It was easter. Something different than all the images of Katholic statues and processions that overruled in my head… Want to buy it?
Same story. But I got the help of a lovely English girl who colored this one. Neat huh?
A final one to get them totally out of my system. But hey… Looking for a nice present for a friend next easter? Buy it!
O, NO! Still not out of my system, it seems. Well, at least I got rid of the eggs here. It is springtime! Buy these merry young birds
This parrot was present almost all days of the ArtWalk. Forgot her name, but I loved her! And she was a great model. Like to buy it?
A close friend keeps saying I must use more tit’s in my work, cause they sell.. well thats what he says. So let’s see if he’s right! Like to buy some?
Again a drawing from a photograph I received. Isn’t this cute? -Reserved-
Some people view everything through their iPads. You can now buy this funny statement
O.. hello! There is Jamie again. To be honest, this was my first attempt. Luckily he came back and I had a resit. Sorry Jamie, to have made you look ten years older! Like to buy Jamie-in-about-ten-years?
Look who came to sit at my table? The Mayor! I had a jolly time drawing him. But I was so nervous, I guess the portrait looked more like the cute man I met in my dreams that night, than the mayor of Cómpeta. Like that idea? -Reserved-
Still haven’t found a Post-it to buy? Then buy this one!
I would know which i’d buy, this one! It’s my favorite. Of course, I’ll buy it!
Have found something? Buy two, they will look great together! -SOLD-
Final chance! The last two are beautiful together. Buy them as a gift for someone else or better, for yourself! Yes, I’d like that
Last final chance! Of course, that’s what I was looking for: I want this one!
