drawing challenge 165: COAT
for the three-days-course typesetting i took last january we had to bring texts to typeset
one of them was this one, shown in the second picture
Be what i wanted to be.
We have taught ourselves everything in life and at some point you think that you are that.
But that's a coat that you've put on. Without that coat you feel bare.
Yet it is important that you dare to discover what lies beneath.
first sentence of an unknown person
text by Marten Toonder, a dutch comic strip creator who had a great influence on the dutch language
by introducing new words and expressions
in addition i made a little sketch
as i said before i like to dress in layers
therefor i like big wide coats, to fit all the layers underneath
and preferably in dark colors, such as gray, brown or black
i once had a beautiful wide hooded coat made of brown corduroy
our sons named that coat 'moms magic coat'
but now I have a new coat, a very light and slim trench coat!
which makes me feel totally different....
for this drawing challenge i used the sketch
and wondered how i would look like in a multicolored coat
ok, with a little black and white ;^))
i used pencil and some (old) tempera paint

look what i found!
around 1984, me in my beloved big wide coat by Mac & Maggie
and then, as now, with too short trouser legs
