  • In preparation for a half marathon on King’s Day (April 27) I ran and walked 24 km. I’m still suffering through an ankle injury, so I’ll have to be cautious. It was a beautiful day, partially run alongside a canal between two rivers. It was tough, because I did 1.5 times my usual training ๐Ÿƒ

  • One can argue when it all went wrong, and the powers-that-be where too lenient against insurrection, leaving room for kinder interpretations or downright rewriting history in favor of those who committed treason. The union is brittle, that’s for sure. Recent developments have proven that.

  • Iโ€™m still struggling with this portrait of Clara Serena Rubens by her father. It feels like Iโ€™m stuck, canโ€™t draw portraits, while I know Iโ€™m reasonably good at drawing portraits, even if I say so myself. Maybe I should put it aside, as a mistake.

  • His catheter was removed, and he now doesn’t have to be contained in a cage anymore, for protection and sanitation. I still need to keep a close eye on him, since the first few days his urethra can clog up again, and he has to go to the vet immediately for emergency treatment.

  • With a cat suffering from FLUTD I need more water bowls around the house, especially water fountains. I modified an old one that one my cats kept emptying by pulling it on its side. It seems work, much to the dissatisfaction of said cat. Heโ€™ll accept it soon(ish) enough. ๐Ÿฑ

  • One of my cats suffers from FLUTD and has to be contained for now because he got narcosis to be treated. He also had the hood of shame. The other cat thinks itโ€™s interesting. Cats have little to no empathy, or donโ€™t show it.

  • I suppose I can print this and use a portrait of Clara Serena Rubens to paint a portrait, a master study, so to say. I only have to change the proportions to fit a young girl. Next, do it as pixel art, maybe?

  • Was looking for a good ink drawing to recreate as pixel art, and found my own ink drawing from 2011. I believe I have improved somewhat since that time. There’s also a process video. 200 x 200 pixels. According to Apple Screen Time it took me 2h34m to draw.
