Last weeks commute drawings

There is no commute drawing for last sunday because I had a day off to celebrate my grandma’s 86th birthday.

Monday: A pretty dress imaginary polaroid. Inspired by the beautiful dress @ssuuuss had on for her brothers wedding, as seen on her instagram. 🙂

Tuesday: I did not finish tuesdays drawing during my commute, so I posted a work in progress and completed her on the way back home. I love dance.

Wednesday: If you’re wondering if I made a commute drawing today, I sort of did. I was practicing working in Paper on my iPad with my new sensu brush. But I didn’t have enough time (for the majority of my commute I was still eating breakfast) to make anything I want to share. Maybe later!
I got a new sensu brush after losing the one I had somewhere. Fortunately there are several Dutch webshops that offer them now so I don’t have to order from the US and pay an absurd amount of shipping costs (fuck you ThinkGeek) and extra tax costs (Ugh) like with my last one. I’ve now finished the drawing I made, but I don’t think it’s all that good. Still, showing my progress is a good thing! And playing around with different ways of drawing in Paper and seeing how I can best use that app is interesting.

A practice drawing with my new sensu brush (I lost the old one). I'm trying out different ways of drawing in Paper by 53 on my iPad. I see a lot of problems with this drawing, but I did enjoy making it!

Thursday: It took me a while to settle on a subject. Lots of ideas, but none felt like something I wanted to draw. Until I figured I could combine a hunan form with a tree. Presto: Dryad!

In which random photos of things get shown

Sunny stairs

These are the last photos of the Black and White Ilford roll that I had in my Olympus Trip. I tend to carry at least one camera with me, so at times I have random photos of things I spotted. These are the ‘things I see’ photos of that film roll. Most of them are taken at the train stations I frequent as a commuter.

Museum Gathering

And I am back with yet more pictures of a Nerdfighter gathering! In march we went to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and I brought my Olympus Trip (with the same Ilford roll as the pictures from my last post) and also my digital DSLR. Outside the weather was beautifully sunny, so I took a lot of pictures while we were waiting for everybody to arrive and also when we had finished with the museum and went outside to catch some rays again.

Here are the analog pictures! I’ll post the digital ones later this week. 🙂

The analog pictures

The photos I took with my Olympus Trip camera during the international nerdfighter gathering in Maastricht! It is the first time that I used this film, Ilford HP5 400, a black an white film that is generally loved among lomographers because it produces high contrast photos. Of course, it was a terribly grey day, weather Dutch people will recognize with the heavy clouds covering the entire sky flattening out the light.

Kjeld surrounded by dead people

Kjeld surrounded by dead people! Inside there was too little light according to the light meter of my camera, but I forced it to take a picture anyway. 🙂 We played a Detective game with the entire group, Kjeld had to figure out who the murderer was before everyone died. My last words were, “If I die it’s gonna be your fault”.

City hall

Out on a walk in Maastricht, I took a picture of the City Hall and we also ran into a bunch of ducks.

Swan

Sometimes when shooting with my analog cameras like the Olympus Trip, I forget that the viewfinder doesn’t show the focus. So when the swan came closer I forgot to adjust it. Oops.
