Elisabeth’s New Cookie Boxes Presentation (30/4)

Alexandre Bibaut / Les2b sprl +32 496 81 92 80 e-mail: alexandre@les2b.be

From this week on, tourists (& natives!) visiting Brussels may find some brand new tasty (& tasteful) souvenirs in the surrounding streets of the Grand Place and even right in front of Manneken Pis…


Brussels based Elisabeth Chocolatier asked us to design a shiny new metal, rectangular cookie box of 18 X 11 X 7,5 cm  and on the evening before the 1st of May (on thursday 30/4 between 16h00 and 19h00) we’ll be proudly presenting (& signing!) the final results at the Stoofstraat 55 (in that shop right across Manneken Pis).

PS That very same night fashion-pop-prince Jean-Paul Gaultier will be fitting the little statue a tiny, tailor made outfit to kick-off of Brussels’ gay pride festival  (and the 1st floor at Elisabeth’s ensures you a front row view on that other historic event ;-)). (more…)

Mix’n'Match: Knack Weekend Werk

Gisteren gevonden in de brievenbus (van de buren!): de Weekend Knack Black – Magic! – Design Special. Met op pg 112-113 een volledig handmatig geïllustreerde handleiding in 9 haltes voor wie zijn / haar huis een beetje ‘up to standards’ wil houden. Wij maakten er onze persoonlijke calvarie van tijdens het verlengd Paasweekend. Hieronder ons werkproces (in 3/4 haltes):


het originele opzet (ergens tss Witte Donderdag & Goede Vrijdag),


de miniatuurtjes in wording (op Paaszondag),


Paasmaandag bij valavond (en bijna op ware grootte)


& voilà op pg 112-113 in the little Black Book (maar nu zijn we dus weer aan het weekend werk…)

L-O-L-A, LOLA! (‘s tablecloth)


Looking for a new, sunny tablecloth to share with your young familymembers during the warmer days to come? Here’s one I made for fromlolawithlove before the winter started and that was instantly installed in our workplace this week (keeping at least one table clean ;-)).

Newww wwwebstore!

Grrreat news from over the ocean: our American webmaster Mickey has just installed & activated our renewed webstore! Too late for ‘Sinterklaas’, but just in time for that other Santa! Please go to the scene of the crime to find out what might be of any interest to you, but we really love the cute Otto-doll that arrived last month in a very limited quantity from the SwiedebieCreativeStudios

More is more

Enkele weken geleden, toen de zon nog volop scheen, kregen wij hier de fantastische Rick de Leeuw op bezoek die enkele pertinente vragen kwam stellen over werk & leven  – het mijne, niet het zijne! – nav het nu reeds geplande volgende concert-boek-gezelschapsspel van ‘Red & Lily’ die in 2015-2016 hun come back maken. En wat een ontwapenende interviewer zoal kan aanrichten, las ik dus gisteren tijdens het middageten in de seizoensbrochure van productiehuis Maandacht…



A painting 4 all seasons: The discovery of Americago…

… is the slightly misleading title of a triptych – situated somewhere between Brussels & New York – that took me about a year to finish. In fact it’s rather some kind of interwoven tapestry of hundreds of never ending associative storylines, then a real painting. Few people thought it would ever get finished & framed, but last Sunday the sacred trinity finally left my brand new workplace in Wemmel Werkstatte. In fact I have been working on it in the most diverse places & weather conditions (the Jet space in Summer, our garden in Autumn, my pop up workspace @ Muntpunt & behind the curtain in M museum in Winter & Spring etc). Can you believe I really felt relieved it finally got out of my system? High time to end some more unfinished business these weeks to come…





PS If you’d ever plan to paint on wood yourself, never forget to put a coat of paint on the backside, otherwise your board will start curbing (take a tip from one who’s tried…) (more…)
