this is an attempted recreation of a drawing that my dad’s brother Eric did when he was younger.

Windows and doors! (of course I’d bring it up!)

Perfect picture, except for the anachronistic green van!

he just looks so sad!

potential design for the new International Courts of Justice building in Den Haag. Anyone else see a resemblance with the Loch Ness Monster?

a very strange looking art installation

they had projections of children’s faces on the figures.

it was actually quite frightening to watch. They were installed for World AIDS day
