Every now and then I have a small camera with me when I paint. Here, are videos of some of the things I have been painting lately as well as videos of others taping my projects. I get my music from the free music archive, a great source if you want some fresh, free stuff to listen to or spike up your projects.
Watch me paint an anamorphic stencil. Anamorphic means that it only looks correct from one point, from all the others it looks kind of skewed (at the end of the video, the kid seems to be sitting upright).

In it you see the grim reaper or the ferry man relocating from the river Styx and now welcoming all those refugees from the middle East and Africa to the promised land of Europe. They [...]

A gentle reminder of the thousands of children still employed in conflicts worldwide. Get your screen print of 'No Ball Games' in the shop, [...]
This is the same spot where I painted the original, much smaller, 'Uncle Sam'. But because I had the entire face of the house I started again and painted it huge. The video shows the work of about 1 week. The neighbors love the new version. On the far left you can also see 'Likes [...]
