I went to Bali for a project that introduced art in primary school classes there. Gave a workshop about induviality in art, and what the value is of just that. How children will be able to discover whole new sides of themselves through expressing their thoughts on paper. And how they would be able to make choices by themselves rather then following the rest of the crowd. 

The illustrations I made here were for a children's book that I also produced there, since one of the people in the project worked with the importance of reading asked me to make a children's book, to show the teachers that you could easily think up a story yourself, no matter how simple and illustrate it. To make it more fun to read for the children, which would ofcourse result in better learning. 

It was a bit of a haste, but I managed to get these done in a day. The story is about a boy that had been trusted by his dad to guard over their family's sawa (rice-field) 
While being on his post though, he keeps being harrased by birds which are way too big for him to handle. Eventually he finds a solution.  :) 

project 2020



More work for school. I survived last year's end show :) got through to the 3rd year. 
This is the first project of the year. It is about the year 2020, how life will be when the time is there. 

I focused on the terrible way people keep getting busier over time. How stress consumes them and the danger of loosing themselves in work, which will leave nothing but a human machine in the end. 
 I was quite happy with it at the time. But looking back now, I see a lot of things that could be improved.

Shit so very very nervous. Today is the last day of this year's schoolyear for me... and it always ends in a major presentation where you have to show what you've done this year. I'm not particulary good with any of those things.... ACK. I'll make photo's of my presentation....if i'm still alive afterward.


anyways, have some sketches and other stuff...

Hello Hello

Hello everybody,

I'm Jolein (duh) and I made this blog to dump sketches and work on and possibly vent on the meaning of life in general lol (won't do that a lot though probs...I rather like life :) )
So yes, that's that for a first post. Drawings and shizzle will be coming soon I hope.

to get started, a little something I did for my typography class.
