So I have returned from Amsterdam unscathed if a little exhausted. We did so much, saw almost everything and had a lot of fun in the process. Amongst the highlights were the Van Gogh Museum (which had an amazing Symbolism exhibition on called Dreams of Nature), Anne Frank's Haus, the Cat Museum, many bars and eateries, a canal cruise, the redlight district and the crazy wonky streets and houses of the historic city. Though the weather didn't match our trip to Munich last year in any shape or form we were pretty lucky to avoid almost all of the rain and only be a wee bit chilly now and then. Here are just a few photos of things that caught my fancy (luckily lacking in our odd faces).

Sadly I missed the Sex Museum because my brother and I had an earlier flight than the rest of the Amsterdam crew but alas you can't have it all.

Bad Blogger

I really am bad at this blogging thing! I ran off to the Lakes and since then I've been pretty much at work or getting ready for Amsterdam (where I go very early Thursday morning) so I haven't had much of a chance to do anything new illustration wise...damn! So here are a few old photos of mine to fill some blog space and make up for my absence. Once upon a time I had every intention of becoming a photographer but the fade kind of fizzled out...I think I have a certain degree of natural talent for photography but I don't find it terribly challenging in the way I do illustration...still I do love it and sometimes I look back and think 'man...I was better at that than I am at drawing...'
