The end of Inktober 2019

IMG_20191016_164521I am not going to lie I am quite happy Inktober is over now. I did find my love for drawing back. But with school I sometimes had some trouble finding the time. I already
expected this when I started. This was the reason that I made doodles instead of full drawing.

 

What I learned from this.

I found my love for drawing back. I had not drawn for a few months. So it was really nice to start making little drawings again.

But I realised that I like to make quick drawings. Draw an avocado on toast, a ghost and special love for faces. I really love drawing faces as you might have seen by now.

 

But  I am happy I did it. Which is the most important thing.

I do prefer a pencil

This week I found out that I do prefer a pencil over the ink. Not to erase but to make the lines softer. If I had used different ink and different way to apply that ink I would have been able to make the lines softer. But I did not do that.

The thing I liked about using a pen for inktober was that I always had one around. And it is really easy to use. But with a pencil, I smudge out some of the lines with my finger. This makes the lines softer. Sometimes that gives a different feel to a drawing or doodle.

 

My doodles for this week:

I do not like drawing I like doodling

Last week I really fell back in love with drawing. Or so I thought. I realised that I like to make a quick drawing. Or at least most of the time. I still like making a portrait once in a while. But that always take 8+ hours. Sometimes you just need a quick fix. So a doodle will do just fine. Than expectations are not so high. Than it is fine if you mess up.

 

Doodles for the weeks inktober

what I did to want to draw again

I did not put the pressure on myself to make perfect drawings every day.  This is why some of the drawings are not as good as others. A moment ago I was sitting at the table finishing the last drawing. The realisation came to me that I really enjoyed the process of it.

For the first time in the past few months, I really want to draw again. And I do not mean doodles I mean a proper good portrait of someone.

Here are my doodles.

Tentoonstelling Design in Het Derde Rijk

22 September ben ik naar het design museum in Den Bosch gegaan. Daar is momenteel een tentoonstelling over design in het derde rijk.
Toen we binnen kwamen moesten we eerst een film bekijken. De film vertelde kort iets over de tijdlijn en grote gebeurtenissen tijdens het derde rijk.
Na deze film gingen we de tentoonstellingshal binnen. Daar begon het met een kort verhaaltje over hoe het begon in 1919. Daarbij ook wat uitleg over nazisme. Daarna kwamen we bij een vitrine met schoolboeken. Het ging erover hoe het nazisme op school werd doorgevoerd. Maar ook hoe het in het dagelijks leven steeds meer naar voren kwam.
Het middenstuk van de tentoonstelling ging veel over Hitler in deze periode. Over de verschillende dingen die hij heeft ontworpen. Maar ook hoe ze het logo voor de partij hadden gevonden.
Het laatste stuk van de tentoonstelling ging over de 2e wereld oorlog. Maar ook hoe in het begin de Duitsers een betaalbare auto was beloofd die er niet kwam zoals ze hadden verwacht.
De tentoonstelling was heel erg gebaseerd op feiten. In dit geval is het goed dat er niet veel meningen in voor kwamen. Het is een gevoelig onderwerp bij veel mensen.
Ik was wel nog hier en daar benieuwd hoe de gewone Duitse burger het heeft ervaren. Maar ook hoe andere burgers van andere landen het zagen gebeuren. Maar ik blijf wel bij mijn standpunt dat het goed is dat er niet te veel meningen in de tentoonstelling werd verteld.
De tentoonstelling was wel netjes verzorgd. Er mochten geen foto’s gemaakt worden.
Zeker een aanrader om heen te gaan nu het er nog is.
De tentoonstelling loopt tot 19 januari 2020
Let wel op dat je van te voren tickets moet bestellen.

Explore Breda

In the first few weeks of our first year, we got the task to explore Breda. And make a 2D design of 30cmx30cm about it.

So I took a few photo’s of the lovely art that you can find in Breda.

While I went through the city I noticed that the city was quite clean for a city of this size. But it was mostly clean in the parts that people see. When I went to the parts where people live and you only go if you need to be there it is less clean.

After that, I found a site which showed soil quality in the city. I found out that the ground that our school is on is potentially serious. I can hear you wonder what that really means. (I still do not know this.) To find an answer I send an e-mail to the municipality which sends me a file with information about the property. Unfortunately, it did not really help. So I worked with what I had and made the following illustration.
