A full colour catalog with reprints of all the works sent in, and also a complete participant list. One of thos catalogs that remembers you from the past when these things were produced. Nowadays most mail-artists can’t find sponsors for such a very fine production. So I am very glad to have received this masterpiece. Will fit wonderful in the archive. And please don’t forget that the exhibition can still be visited in Den Bosch, Netherlands.   Have a look at the website for details:

New drawings by Ruud Janssen – Feb 2016

And suddenly there is the time to make a series of new drawings that fit in the theme digital Humans and analog machines. Where the human race is building all these digital connections but forget that we are analog beings.

You can click on the individual drawings and see a larger sample of the drawing. They are all made on thick paper, size A4 (european standard). I use indian ink (from Talens) and russian watercolours (Petersburg), which mix very well together.

I also have a digital portfolio of my works where you can get a broader overview of my work:

As you can see I am very focussed on the digital connetions and what humans want to do. I feel I am in the middle. I work with the traditional tools in writing and drawing, and for a living I train students to implement the newest digital possibilities and make a living out of that.

Hope you enjoy the drawing.
