And this week, the notebooks of Charles Darwin where found again! And his book “On the origin of species” was and is a big inspiration for me still. At this moment, I am reading “The voyage of the Beagle”.Very interesting

drawing Darwin On the origin of species

Discovery of a dinosaur embryo.


I am ahead of my time. Or should I say “behind schedule for 66 million years?”
This week scientists in China found a fossil of an dinosaur egg, approximately 66 million years old. With an almost (!!!) complete skeleton inside. They called it BABY YINGLIANG.

It is believed to be a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur, and has been named Baby Yingliang.
Researcher Dr Fion Waisum Ma said it is “the best dinosaur embryo ever found in history”.


Last month I finished my big drawing “on the origin of species V” ( See one of my latests posts, 150 x 180 cm).
And lets be honest, the resemblance is striking.
A coincidence? Not really. For years I am working on what I call “The Darwin Project”.
When does a brushstroke, or a pencil line, tranforms into a organic form?
I don’t plan anything, I don’t make studies, before making the end piece. I just do. The work creates itself.
Like the egg of an embryo of a dinosaur, on the point of hatching.
The work is for sale.
