    It took me about 4 years – with intervals – to get these 4 babies finished, but they officially left the house last Friday to get framed, spread their wings & go their own way. Adios, Amigos & Fare Well!

    Started these ‘portraits’ on wooden panels of 4 kids growing into 4 young adults – slightly inspired by 4 Indonesian noblemen at the Rijksmuseum in A’dam and very much influenced by Bruegels 4 seasons from last year in Vienna – still at our giant-ex-Jet-studio, where I made these first 3 steps:

    I probably didn’t take enough pictures of the work in progress and close ups of the finished details, but that’s exactly where the devil hided: each time I looked at something a little closer, I instantly saw tens of other unfinished loose ends that lead me elsewhere, what turned this project into a never ending saga (it didn’t help either we had other & stricter deadlines in the meantime;-))

    Well, let’s take a quick looks at some parts in progress from each painting:

    Looking at that last detail above I see there are still some letters missing on the camera. And the lens misses depth. And maybe I should have done something with the song ‘the eye of the tiger’? etc etc etc…

    Our Encyclopedia Colorista is from now on also officially available in Spanish & Catalan. Muchas gracias / graci├Ęs to Combel Editorial for these 48 colorful pages in both super colorful languages.

    Rojo / vermell is of course the color I associate Espana & Cataluna most with…

    … but I had to make some minor corrections on page 23 to avoid any sensitive topic;-)

    The book still has a happy ending though, on some costa, somewhere over the rainbow:-)
