Profile of My Art on Belgian TV

My art profiled on Belgian TV channel BRUZZ by master of the documentary art Anja Strelec.

My favourite part is how she caught my funky hair waving in the wind like a bug’s antennae!

Production: BRUZZ TV

Coming to a theatre near you!

Look at us being paid to do what we are the best at doing… our art!

Generously funded by «Un Futur Pour La Culture» at the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, my manuscript and continuous line illustrations for this children’s theatre play called DELPHI and our packed multidisciplinary application scaffolded by all of Kalliopi Bolovinou’s musical theatre experience, linguistic skill and wisdom

has been lauded by the panel of judges as “among the best ranked.”

Then the Kaleidoscope production team paired us up with such an incredible human, who also turns out to be a fantastic actor: Olivier Francart will be joining us in a theatre, art & music workshop on stage at Ecole No 8, Avenue du Bois de la Cambre, (Uccle) this Friday.

Then again on stage at Columban Theatre (Wavre) 20-24 June.

Hopefully with actress Cecile Delberghe too.

We already workshopped at the gorgeous Théâtre Mercelis (look at the frescos!) until covid knocked us out.

But then PointCulture swooped in, offered us offices and the SACD Author’s Rights granted access to their co-working spaces…

So here we are, developing what we do best, with theatres and office spaces and actors, and the rough date for the next residency in Brussels is…(drum roll please)… The Senghor theatre in November!

To all those asking me when the final show will be: Spring 2023 is the official answer, The Senghor will have the 2022-23 program finalised in May and only then we will know the exact dates, that’s the way it goes in theatre, apparently.

Let’s just celebrate for now; quality children’s theatre is back on track!

A-typical Associations with the Sea

Images that come to mind when I’m about to illustrate the sea for the next publishing project:

Hokusai waves

vs labial formations,

whorls like maze like brain,

albatross as ba birds,

this beak from The Book of Kells,

Escher’s fish to birds,

Barbara Lavallee’s happy puffins,

those dolphin frescos in Knossos,

and the white horses of Neptune of course.

Same as everyone else, right?

What to do with a lined face?

Thank you for all the birthday wishes. What year is it? Look at my body and you can tell. “Count the rings as you would on a tree. (38!) Count the ridges on the cumulus of my skin.” What to do with all the lines on my body? Make continuous line art of course! The trailer is below. The full theatre performance of the whole journey is in production. Let’s hope we can invite you safely soon.

Interview about my art on BRUZZ online

For those who missed it when first edited (beautifully by Anja Strelec) and for those who might enjoy it in English, Nederlands & Francais; here’s my interview with @BRUZZbe online. It will be on Belgian TV at 6pm. Thank you for all your love and friendship, it’s been lots of fun sharing art with you. Cool to see the interview from before the show go out on people’s home screens just before all the paintings go to their new homes.
