My mom by Sanne Thijs

Available to buy on…

On June 11th 2008 it was mothersday. We were visiting our grandmothers house and were sitting cousy in the sun under the tree. Like always there was a lot to talk about. And at the same time i let my mother talk with here mother and sisters. But i also took my sketchbook and drew my mother with a blue pen. And this is the result.
I am still in love with this drawing. So simple and real.

(i found this drawing again because i was looking in old sketchbooks. I just gave them all a spot on a nice cupboard that i bought.)

Every kid loves drawing, I just never stopped. 1 day my teacher in highschool told me I could go to an artschool because I was so good in all that artistic stuff. And so I did. I went to the artschool in Genk. It was a whole new world, for the first time I was completely in a world were art and drawing was important. It was so inspirational. Now I am studying at the St-Lucas in Gent for a bachelor. I still have 1 year to go. Than I can start working on my career as an professional illustrator.
