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?

a FaceBook Dicussion – drawing by Ruud Janssen

a_facebook_discussion-athens_2010

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.
