Ink on paper
The old archetypes and stories 'suitable' for men are wack. Or outdated. We can't get glory out of sacrifice in battle anymore, nor are we the sole providers of money and security anymore. We want to create space for women to take place on positions of power, so where does that leave men? I think creating some new archetypes and ideals to aspire could help us reposition roles in society in a way that's healthier and more fitting for this day and age.
This guy here is an attempt to start this research on archetypes. I combined an old archetype, the Warrior, with one that actually still has a place in society, the Caretaker, and tried to make a lovely whole thing of it.
The original drawing of this illustration is for sale.
It is a unique, signed work of art. There is only one of it, so if it's gone, it's gone. There is no frame on the drawings, but I can advise you about it, and if you live close to Rotterdam I can fix one for you. Just shoot me an email if you would like to know more about this.
I pour a lot of love and care in my drawings. By buying one of these, or one of my t-shirts, you are directly contributing to my artistic practice. I think it's amazing if you're thinking about a purchase and I want to thank all of you who have supported me already! This is such a huge motivator for me, thank you ❤️
