At New King: update

We were in Amsterdam yesterday and of course, we went to eat at our favorite restaurant New King on the Zeedijk. While Norbert asked for a table for two, I noticed a sketch on an A4 above the cashier desk on the 1st floor (top floor). I stared at it for a while, because I thought I recognized that sketch. And it was this exact sketch (above), which I posted on 04.03.2006. New King: I am honored that you hang my sketch in your restaurant!! Yesterday’s dinner was delicious, as always! Bedankt!

A little update on me and my study: Veterinary Medicine is a very intensive study. I have an exam around every 5 weeks. Within these weeks, I also have a team project that requires some attention too. Despite the energy that I have to put into the study, it is very exciting and interesting. It was unthinkable that I would exchange sketch paper and blue prints for milking cows, dissecting chicken, and stem cells research. However, I did not regret my decision at all. And those who thinks that I completely ditched architecture is wrong. I am still busy with architecture, only at another level. Previously, it was architecture in (centi)meters. Now, it is in micro and nanometers as in liver architecture or cytoarchitecture :)

Wasabi

.enlarge

Wasabi is a lot better and has also gained some weight. Though, she cannot go back to ‘normal’. Her CREA value is back to normal (a surprise!), but her UREA value is slightly higher than the previous test. We’re hoping that her UREA would go back to the normal range as well. But I guess that is too much to ask. One normal value is better than none.

Shoe

.enlarge

I had to laugh when I was sketching this person’s foot. I know that people get intimidated sometimes when somebody stares at their face (and draw). But this time, the person felt intimidated because I was drawing his shoe/foot. He sat one row in front of where I sat, across the aisle. He looked back twice, but not at me. And I didn’t look up either, pretending I was not really looking at his shoe. I guess he could feel that someone was studying his body part. So he moved further down, on my side of the aisle, facing me…

Bitten

(see the teeth marks on left bottom corner?)

Ok, so I forgot to put away (or just did not) this card last night. And before I get a chance to send this to Jan M at SP, my cat already took a bite of the card. I assume he or she disagreed with my idea to send it to the SP. And I assume it is one cat out of six who did this and I think Salami or Bacardi did it….Hmmm… may be I should compare the marks with their teeth?

A (note) card with graphite and color pencils. Such a difficult paper to work with. May be I should send this card to Jan M. at SP. After all their logo is a (flying) tomato.

Sketchcrawl 12.5

It’s nice to be able to join Sketchcrawl again! Sketchcrawl 12.5  ‘Draw in your home’ is supposed to be tomorrow, 28-01, but since I have other plans for tomorrow I decided to do it today instead. These are sketches of the interior of our flat.

Take a break

It was a good day, except for one thing. The figure drawing workshop I wanted to do is canceled. One of the students bailed out so suddenly, and now the teacher can’t get enough people for the class. :( how disappointing!!

Mouse

I am suddenly very interested in mice, guinea pigs, hamster, rabbits, etc… My homework that I did last night was about the ‘woelmuis’ (don’t know the name in English…it’s a mouse). I think they are cute. I am just not sure if they can get along with the cats. Can rabbits (especialy the super size giant type) can get along with cats? Are they big enough to take care of themselves?
