Three of my drawings were used as illustrations for surreal poems by Mhiera den Blanken and Wouter Dalem on the website of Dutch digital cultural magazine De Optimist. Thank you to the editors of the magazine and in particular to Zep de Bruyn (instagram.com/zepdebruyn) who personally got me involved.
I was impressed by the poetry of both Mhiera and Wouter. Two poems in particular struck a chord with me: "Wildernistrek" by Mhiera, which reminded me of the atmosphere in my drawing "Roots" (above, middle), and "Bd" by Wouter for which I chose my drawing "Drie tongen" (above, right).
