   I've always loved books but these days I find myself addicted to everything visual.
   Magazines, blogs, books and exhibitions. Fortunately for me a lot of new books
   came my way the past few weeks as a gift, found treasure or just bought by myself.
   My most recent favorites are:

   + Charley Harper, an illustrated life (see this previous post)
   + Happy animal time by Junzo Terada
   + De Sjaal by Francis Durbridge (coverdesign by Dick Bruna)
   + Miniburger Dirty dozen & lucky 13th, 13 comic booklets by different artists
   + Wannee Kookboek, 15th edition of the original cookbook (1910) of the 
      Amsterdam school of home economics
   + 30 minutes meals and Jamie at home by Jamie Oliver

   Also nice work here.

   The workshop 'illustration on porcelain' I'm teaching started this week. Although two
   and a half hours turned out a bit short, beautiful drawings and collages were made.
   Next lesson, we'll put the designs onto the china.



   A little box with symbolic personal treasures to bring along on 'the last journey'.
   For a special person of whom I had to say goodbye.

   I was browsing through some blogs (Camilla Engman, Shelf) and came across
   Rob Ryan. I've know his work for a while but didn't know he also owned a little shop

Beautiful old things

   I found a box with some old tools and other pretty things. I think it belonged to my
   grandfather who was a skillful carpenter in his spare time.

   New fabrics from Carol Cox (a little quilt shop in Utrecht. Although I'm not really into
   quilting, I like the fabrics they sell, such nice little patterns). I haven't decided on what to
   make with them yet...
