Oh, hi there! Welcome to my blog.
I started this blog to collect all my creative work independent of the “Insta-verse” in a more structured manner. I hope to post some interesting thoughts about drawing, productivity and maybe life in general, who knows.
I live in the Netherlands, in the beautiful city of Delft. I am a software engineer by heart but I am now exploring my role as Product Owner for a Big Data platform. You can find more about my day job on LinkedIn.
As for my creative side, I have been drawing on and off for a long time (mostly cartoons), but laid dormant for about a decade and a half, because I struggled and did not enjoy drawing anymore. The perfectionism paradox.
Ever since Inktober 2017 I slowly regained interest in drawing and the charm of a time constrained challenge is that perfectionism became just a small inner voice, as there was no time for it. Drawing every day for a month sparked my creativity and I decided on the 1st of January 2018, I wanted to draw every day for as long as I could.
I discovered r/SketchDaily and have been posting dilligently ever since. In the process I am learning new methods, new mediums and forms of art that are great to try and share.
Feel free to contact me if you want to know more.
