De kerkganger

                                                    Illustratie Leggere Donna 1990


Kerkganger

Je komt er nooit van af
Net als herpes zoster
Levenslange straf
Van dominee en koster

Ze zijn nu uit de gratie
Die kinderziel besmeuren
Was puur manipulatie
En mocht niet gebeuren

Het feit interpreteren
Is slechts laf gelul
Maar helaas, manipuleren
Is heel verslavend spul

Nooit het juiste woord
Soms een slechte grap
Voelt na kindermoord
Als nog een extra trap

Il carnevale triste


Una Dormita Lunga


A Rio de Janeiro
Sul Monte Corcovado
Joao - bruco brasileiro
Si trovò in mezzo al guado

Volle ballar la samba
Al prossimo carnevale
Ma sua ottava gamba
Faceva troppo male

Exotic - Illustration Friday


Exotic (I hope not toxic; neither prehistoric)





...Well, too bad I started late on this cartoon so now it is published with the 'Prehistoric' topic in Illustration Friday.
Poor thing hardly is prehistoric but he is: 'Exotic', with exotic fruit!
I did not finish the drawing the way it is supposed to be so I will post an up-date soon!

Children at work



This is a collage I won a lovely prize with in 2001 (Premio Gioielleria Simionato at Umorismo e Satira in Dolo, Italy) .
Only now I finally got round at finishing the foot-balls the way I wanted to so it has become a mixed-media cartoon :)

ATTACHED TO LIFE



The  brown leaf is afraid the wind will divide her
From the old tree and blow her away
- She asks the spider -
- If he can provide her -
With some of his glue so she can stay

The wind is too strong for the glue she took
Still she tries hard to remain on that tree
- Like a fish on a hook -
- Squirms for the brook -
Her struggle is desperate as can be

A November-storm comes with gusts of rain
The leaf realizes she cannot resist it
- Soon she'll be slain -
- Her battle in vain -
The world will look like she never existed

On that same piece of branch which held our friend
You'll find something happened, a marvelous thing
- Nature has planned -
- A brand new event:
A bud waits to be a new leaf next spring!




AAN HET LEVEN GEHECHT

Spinnetje spin daar in je web!
Weet je wat ik nodig heb?
Lijm, zodat ik altijd plak
Op dit plekje aan de tak!

Weet je, ik ben heel erg bang
Dat de wind me met zijn tang
Weg zal rukken van mijn plek
Je vindt dat, hoop ik, toch niet gek?

Vooruit dan maar zei vriendje spin
Hij krabde even aan zijn kin,
Gleed toen aan een draad omlaag
En greep het blaadje in haar kraag

Spin ging heel snel aan het werk,
Zijn spinnelijm was supersterk!
Toen ging hij weg want hij moest gauw
Een plekje vinden voor de kou

Ze voelde al de herfstwind naderen
Om haar heen dansten de bladeren
'Je zult nog naar ons gaan verlangen!'
Zij ging niet mee, bleef stevig hangen

Daar hing ze dan, helemaal alleen
Haar vriendjes waren weg, waarheen?
Spin, blaadjes, de vogelnesten leeg..
Ze merkte dat ze heimwee kreeg

Waar was de zomer met blauwe luchten?
Ze moest er even diep van zuchten..
Waar waren de vliegjes, bijen, bloemen
Zo kon ze er nog duizend noemen

Alles was grauw, grijs en door de koude
Niets waar zij van had gehouden
Wat was ze ontzettend dom geweest
Dat ze niet mee gedanst had op dat feest

Daar kwam de zware novemberstorm
De kracht van de windvlagen was enorm
Het blaadje hing verschrompeld en zwak
Aan haar eigen plekje op de tak

Kom wind, pak me beet want ik wordt gek
Als ik moet blijven op deze plek!
Ik wil vluchten, draaien, dansen
Maar heb ik daarvoor nog wel kansen?

Daar kwam hij dan tot haar geluk 
En scheurde haar los met een stevige ruk
Ze spreidde zich uit en greep die kans
Voor een laatste levensdans

Blij wervelde ze heel lang rond,
Tot ze ging slapen op de grond
Op haar plek op de tak, daar, boven op,
Groeide alweer een nieuwe knop!

BUGS



The big green bug was very unhappy, he was thrown out of the house in an old newspaper.
Nobody ever liked him and he thought he should change his way of life.
While he was crawling out of the newspaper he read an add in the newspaper: bug needed for a lawyer's office.
Soon he would find out that the kind of bug intended was something quite different than what he thought it to be which implied that he would have to start all over again, when a brilliant thought hit him: why not become a huge lady-bug? He knew lady-bugs were considered sweet little things and lucky-charms.
He asked a friend if she could paint him with black and red and as a finishing touch cover his shields with black dots.....
