Creating Ivanka and Meaning

November 4th, 2014

After 5 Season’s of Corporate Working Beauty it was time for a break. It’s not that I am tired of Sarah, Claire or Isobel… I just wanted to try something different. Create something new. And the idea woke in me to create an interpreter! Actually the idea came to me in an exchange with a […]

Let’s talk about Boob Envy!

August 26th, 2014

What’s with all the cleavage? Someone once said that I draw nice cleavage… And I often ask myself why?! And by all means maybe I have to face the Freudian truth: Do I have Boob Envy? What do you think? And now, slow, don’t judge! It is perfectly fine for men to have penis envy (according to […]

What is Inspiration? Don’t ask me… Go google it. But to be brief, Oxford Dictionary provides us with a definition: “The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative”. That sounds simple enough, but then some things make us feel, but don’t inspire… like if a brick would fall […]

Where’s the world at? As an artist I am often overcome with emotions and sensations. And also by the darkness of the world at times. With conflicts in Israel and Ukraine, planes being shot out of the sky and wars in countless other places… How does that reflect on us? On our society? I ask myself […]

The Apocalyptic Question

July 15th, 2014

What do you experience when reading Working Beauty? Please let me know… As my work feels very much in “transition”, and I often wonder where I am heading. Creatively. I know how the story will end this Season (at least to some extent) but as I have become more apocalyptic in my story, I realise […]

Artist Corner: What’s Business?

September 3rd, 2013

As an artist I sometimes feel a bit different… I feel a bit different in general,… but because I’m an artist I feel even differenter (I just made that up). My main target is for readers to enjoy my art and my work, but I have a real difficulty to put a price on it… […]

Like every respectable actress knows, a career starts with some B- or C-movies and they are later a bit ashamed of the nudity, the sillyness or the horror of their earlier efforts. Our comic-stars have exactly the same past… but they are not ashamed of their origins, as silly and naked as they might have […]

Dancing with the past…

August 27th, 2013

As announced earlier this month, I am working on restoring one of my older comic stories so I can put it on the web for my readers. It is one of my favorites, because I remember I put a lot of thought and work into it and it is up to now my most consistent […]

As the new Season of Working Beauty is approaching and I told somebody about it, she asked me what my process was. How am I creating the story? I thought that’s a good opportunity for reflection because despite the fact that a some of the story just evolves, there is a certain amount of planning […]

Someone asked me on facebook whether I feel I could use comedy for every subject, or if some things were taboo. After some reflection, I realized this question is worth a post of its own. Thanks Esther :-) What is a taboo?! I could have asked that question back too, because taboos are individual and […]
