When I work on drawings, I always work on several ones. THis gives you an overview of the ones I am currently working on.They will get ready one by one when I finish the small details. When ready, I normally scan them and sometimes publish them on a blog or on other placed. Then they are archives in portfolio’s to keep them dry and dark and safe for the future. Maybe an exhibition one of these days?

Outgoing mail-art October 2016


Two outgoing envelopes today. One above a reply to the cards from Houlton Vinyl (Kosmo Vinyl) in USA. He asked for some Ray Johnson add-and-pass-o sheets which I am sending him. Always was a fan of the Clash, so this is an interesting new contact. Also love the cards he did…… The second envelope below goes to Heleen de Vaan who is constantly active with her new drawings and sometimees transfers them into beautiful cards and or rubberstamps. A few new things for her too…..


a FaceBook Dicussion – drawing by Ruud Janssen


A FaceBook Discussion is a drawing i made in July 2010 when I was working in Athens. The theme has to do with several discussions on facebook where people sometimes crossed the lines and some friendships were broken. When not talking Face to Face but sitting behind a computer some people tend to overdo it with their words and emotions. When respect is lost, the friendships are lost too.

Video 3D Pen object by Ruud Janssen

New object made with the 3D pen on 7 till 9 October 2016. I used 4 colors ABS plastics to create this larger object. A video is made to show how it looks from different angles. It is an abstract work that is still in progress. So after adding some minor details it will be ready and will get a title too. Not sure yet.
