Enough shroom for practice

We share a lot of things with mushrooms: some of us are beautiful and some of us — well, you know. Others may be toxic and even poisonous to you. The only difference is that mushrooms are much easier to draw than people.


Veggin’ out

Don’t believe a word, I’m not at home veggin’ out — well, I do it sometimes but that doesn’t count. Lately I’ve been drawing a lot of veggies for an upcoming project: I am sick and tired of listening to everyone complaining about eating real food is expensive. It is not and I will show you otherwise.


Getting trendy


It’s been quite a while, ain’t it? This post is just to let you know that I finally jumped on the Instagram wagon. You read that right: I am using Instagram on my phone [applause]. Excluding charmless foodies and tootsies on the beach and cute cats doing cute things, quite honestly, I must say that I like it a lot.

And why Dawdletopf?
Simply because dudeltopf was already taken. I got so peed off that I couldn’t remember the word dawdle in a while, which fitted perfectly with all the concept behind The Dudeltopf Diaries: wasting time, be slow, move slowly and idly, aimlessly. Procrastinate. Enough said, you get the picture.

I’ve changed my name to voddenman (rag-and-bone man in dutch).

Only b√Ętarde is real

And I don’t mean that naughty dog.


Les cahiers du petit Matthieu

Le petit Matthieu is drawing outside the line on purpose. Le petit Matthieu doesn’t care about Art. Le petit Matthieu doesn't give a fuck about your opinion. He just draws because he wants to. Who wouldn't want to be like him?



I am getting some stuff done this week. And Wordpress is getting me down.


The bygone man

The Bygone Man has always the right word, because he is older and wiser than you. The Bygone Man has the last one as well, because you don’t dare to contradict a ghost… even though he be an irksome caitiff.


End of the story

…however, I will publish here any news about The Dudeltopf Diaries. If you wish to drop me a line you still can reach me by email, of course. Servus!


What can you do when you can’t do anything?


A day full of possibilities

“Post something new every month.” That’s something I’ve managed to deal with. But now it has become a boring routine. No zest. No excitement anymore. Without goals and objectives, projects tend to fade away, just as relationships. I’ve learned it well. And I’ve promised myself not to make the same mistakes again. So I’m breaking camp and loading my rucksack. See you on the trail!


Winter retreat

Autumn is trotting in quickly. Days are getting shorter and nights are growing longer. Nature is dying. Winter, the time for rest and renewal, is coming. But do not despair, because there are no endings nor beginnings and Spring will come again. Are you ready to hibernate?
