I think we are all aware of the plane crash of flight MH 17 which happens 2 weeks ago. I’ve mentioned before in my blog that July might be my favourite month of this year, but after this tragedy, it’s not, and this whole thing is just sad.

I’m glad I don’t have people that I know are on that plane, but it does make you think. Flying suppose to be one of the most safest way to travel.

It’s been awhile since I have made drawing and actually finish it (I procrastinate, darn).
I’ve made this drawing for the people of my country. Because they say time heals and we are  healing. 


De vliegtuigcrash van vlucht MH 17 is inmiddels al bijna 2 weken geleden. Eerder heb ik gezegd dat juli mijn favoriete maand van dit jaar zou kunnen zijn, maar na deze tragedie is dat het zeker niet meer, want het is gewoon triest.

Ik ben blij dat ik geen mensen ken die in dat vliegtuig bevinden, maar het zet je tot op het denken. Vliegen was namelijk een van de meest veilige vormen van reizen.

Het is alweer een tijdje geleden dat ik een tekening heb gemaakt.
Ik heb deze tekening gemaakt voor de mensen van dit land. Ze zeggen dat tijd heelt. En ik geloof zeker dat we dat nu aan het doen zijn. 


I've used the Ikea catalog for some furniture inspirations.

  1. Beautiful drawing and I share your sentiments and hope that everyone can look towards celebrating the lives of those lost instead of dwelling on the tragedy. July seemed to be an awful month for the news in general :( here's to a better latter half of 2014 xxx

  2. I didn't know you could draw! I am super sad about what happened but I have to say the drawing is absolutely beautiful.

  3. That's so thoughtful of you to draw that for all the victims and everyone else healing from this incident- it's a really lovely picture and I can definitely tell you have put your heart into it! :( stay strong and safe everyone! X

  4. What a beautiful drawing you made.
    And I'm sure flying still is the safest way to travel - luckily, these kind of things don't happen so often...


  5. Nice illustration! love the band aid patch

  6. Prachtige tekening. Ik ken ook geen mensen die in het vliegtuig zaten maar toch grijpt het je aan. Het is gewoon verschrikkelijk dat al die mensen die op vakantie gingen zo aan hun einde moesten komen. :'(

  7. I feel really sad about the flight MH17. Let's just pray for the victims and their beloved families. By the way, I love your drawing :)

  8. Het heeft mij ook erg geraakt en aan het denken gezet. Mooi verwoord en wat een prachtige tekening <3

  9. Wauw wat mooi dat je voor deze gebeurtenis een tekening hebt gemaakt! Het is echt een verschrikkelijke gebeurtenis!
    Liefs, Tessa

  10. je kunstwerk is mooi. Ik heb thuis ook van die hb,2h,6h ect. potloden liggen, maar weet helaas niet hoe ze werken haha. (niet eens aangeraakt :c ) Ik teken een of ander manier graag ruw met pen.
    en idd, vliegen hoort het veiligste manier te zijn om te reizen.. maar ook vaag dat ze perse daar in de buurt gingen vliegen..

  11. your drawing is amazing. and it is tragedy that innocent people got caught in between. ugh. makes me sick :(

  12. beautiful drawing. it has been so tragic and terribly sad. thoughts are with you and the people of the netherlands. xx

  13. That's a beautiful piece you made there. I feel the sadness in the girl's eyes. My thoughts and prayers to the victims and their loved ones.

  14. That's a cute drawing and yes this situation is sad !


  15. This is such a beautiful drawing with a wonderful meaning behind it.

  16. I like it! It really is a tragedy that it happened. I hope they can finally recover all the bodies and bring them back home..

  17. Wat een mooie blogpost Mei! Fijn om te horen dat je geen vrienden hebt verloren in de crash, maar dat wil inderdaad niet zeggen dat we de pijn van de anderen niet voelen. Laten we hopen dat het niet meer gebeurt! xx

  18. I was so shocked when I heard about the news of the MH17! How is it possible that such a tragedy could happen. Though I was in Australia, it just angered me to be a citizen of the world and just accept that something like that happened. It is a beautiful drawing and it's nice that you didn't procrastinate to finish it.


  19. This is beautiful Mei, and conveys is so well. what a tragedy. x

  20. You are so amazing at drawing, I don't think I've seen them before! All these plane accidents are kinda starting to make me worry, what with three occurring within a week (Malaysia (#2!!! even the fact that there's a #2 to specify is appalling), Taiwan, Algeria). I had to fly out from Taiwan the following week and boy was I nervous, but thank goodness I made it back safely. My friend's friend and his family and girlfriend were taken during the first tragedy with MH370, and I had another friend who was supposed to take that flight for an event hosted by my school, but cancelled last minute because her IB mocks clashed with the schedule.

  21. Sorry for not writing earlier, I'm so sad for what happened, my thoughts with the people of Netherlands. I think your drawing is very thoughtful & shows your beautiful soul Mei!
