Many haerts

In the beginning of this week, while waiting for answers, I started to draw a new heart-picture, but for some reason I "had" to draw many hearts in this picture this time, going over the boarders of the paper. Today, after being hit by the news of the bus-crash involved the death of 22 children and 6 adults, children still in critical conditions, it feels like the picture found it s place. But really, I wished it didn´t.
I wished it had only needed one heart, for very different reasons as this one.
This is a never ending pain started for many people, connecting again to the many painful things happening every days, connecting again to the fact that every minute someone goes through something like this.
There s a silent feeling now. Strength to all from all my heart!

A haert for everyone

Introducing a little side project. Lately I have been feeling so much sadness around, maybe it s my age, the situations where people end up in, maybe it s just part of the cycle, or maybe it is so, that to many people, youngsters, kids, are confronted with unnecessary pain, and to little love. The connection between hands, hart and head seem to be lost in all the mediums nowadays, and altought we might seem to progress on some parts, we clearly start to miss out on some others.
Therefore I started this little haert project, the idea to make many over a period of time, we ll see, no connected projects yet, but idea s are welcome...

at the moment it seems a project connecting both illustrational work and diaryfragments, so I post it here as well:

A heartfelt day to everyone!
