I started my project on Hyves in May 2008. Hyves is a social networking tool like facebook, friendster and linkedin.

I asked people, initially unknown to me, to be my friend. If they accepted and added me to their group of friends, I was allowed to see the photographs in their profile. From these I picked one.

I then copied this photo with brushes and ink. After the drawing was finished, I made a digital image of it, which I posted on my own profile. Then I gave notice to my friend that his or her drawing was done. All drawings combined with the reactions and comments form one large work of art.

Book : Het Einde

18 years ago I documented all shows of the Dutch artists initiative Lokaal 01, Breda  in paintings and drawings for one season. Lokaal 01, Breda has to stop their activities and I've documented the final show   in 65 drawings.  A small souvenir of an initiative that was active for 32 years and will be dearly missed.  I've made a book of the 65 drawings in the  printing and publishing department of the Jan van Eyck Academy, Maastricht. The price of this small but really nice book is €17,-  it can be ordered by sending me an e-mail : stijnpeeters@on.nl.
