Set your sails….

These sailor pictures where originally watercolour paintings from my sketchbook, but after I had taken the photographs, I decided to publish them as black-and-white pictures. I like the sort of vintage comic touch there is to them. So, here are two scenes of a sailor’s life…. Estas imágenes de marineros eran acuarelas de mi libretaContinue reading “Set your sails….”

You are my mirror

The typical tool of the jester is a mirror. He makes us look at ourselves from outside – and often it is because of this shift of perspective that we see this until the very moment so horribly serious situation in a completely new – and often times – quite funny way…. that’s why today I send you a jester 😉Continue reading “You are my mirror”
