Every year the Felix Poetry Festival invites an artist to make visuals/graphics/drawings for the programme paper and the posters. This year this was up to me. As the city of Antwerp was worried – after taking a look at my website – the images would become too dark, I started out trying to draw with colored pencils only. This did not work out so well as far as I was concerned, so I more or less invented another way to make images for this purpose, see a few of them below. These images are ‘blackless’ and in happy colors.
The festival will take place the 14th, 15th and 16th of june at the Felix Pakhuis in Antwerp.
