Last sunday I had to say goodbye to my friend Fejty. She was the best dog that ever happened to me. We met at the shelter @dierentehuis_schuthok 2,5 years ago and were inseparable since.
Drawing is a great way of coping with something so supersad. I made her this little drawing with things she loved: the beach, trees and branches and one of her packmembers. In her last days she wasn’t away from my side for a moment. Our friendship was a true blessing and she won’t be forgotten.

Last week I found a nearly dead little duck in the canal near my place. It was so fluffy and so weak. I got it out of the cold water and a warm blanket brought back some life in the bird. And now I drawn him! I wonder how he’s doing! @vogelhospitaal Hoe gaat het met ‘m?

Do you remember the soaps I posted mid-corona-time?
Here’s the sticker-version. Good to stick on #bathroommirrors for example. I made a series of #corona-themed stickers before i got #covid19 myself. Now the virusnews isn’t trending here anymore, but let’s not forget to be social.

Yesterday I was at the Black Lives Matter protest in my hometown. My good friend @hermancevandijkphotography shot this photo of me writing BLM on my facemask. It was a super inspiring protest.

‘Zwarte Piet’ known as ‘Black Face’ abroad, is a character in a carnivalesque celebration of Sinterklaas (basically Santaclaus) in NL. That takes place in november until december.
I grew up liking the festival, because it’s a children’s party. Children get sweets and presents. And there’s bright colors, rhymes and songs.
One childhood memory came up after contemplating racism these days: Sadly I remember myself enthusiastically pointing at a black person, thinking it was Zwarte Piet some time in the summer. I remember my mums shame and my own after I realised I’ve said something wrong. I even remember the person’s cranky expression. Very understandable.

How this ever became a tradition, i don’t care. And apart from it being a capitalist, commercial thing now: it’s fucking racist and it always has been.
For the past years people have been trying to adjust the celebration positively, but the opposing bullying side turned it into a soup of childish, racist, sourness. Because “children love Zwarte Piet” and “we cannot take this away from them”. This whole discussion makes me sick to the point that I think: if we can’t adjust it, then fucking sink Sinterklaas’ poluting steamship and tell the truth countrywide to all children.
Why not start a new, beautiful celebration of children. Where it’s not about spending money on piles of presents, racism and lies. But about celebrating the magical creativeness of children’s minds. I’m sure we can think of a great way to do that.
Now stop fucking whining about something that’s long past due and honor all children. Not only the white ones.

Near to my front door 🖤 I think I heard them shaking that spraycan last night. It makes me happy to hear the sound of revolution. 😉 It’s about time.
