My ferry drawings published with Storehouse app

I downloaded the Storehouse app on my iPad and made in half an hour a presentation of the drawings I made on the ferry in the spring and summer of 2013. It is a very easy to use app, and it gives a very nice result.

Here are some screenshots from my iPad in the Storehouse app.

Here you can see it how it is on Storehouse:

Magician Mal Cross

I met him in Manhattan, New York. I looked rather long at his moustache, so he invited me for a cup of coffee. He showed me some of his tricks and allowed me to draw him. And he explained me the effects of marijuana, which is a rather odd thing to do to someone from Amsterdam, I think. On his business card he wrote: Mal Cross, magician to the rich and famous. Here is his website: malcross.com

Janos Marton on Skype

Today I went to see a documentary about the  Living Museum. The Living Museum is a workspace for artists at the Creedmoor Psychiatric Hospital in New York. Janos Marton is leading the place and after the film we skyped with him. Rokus Loopik would like to start a Living Museum in The Netherlands.

I have been busy for hours to post this drawing from Flickr to this WordPress blog 😦
 
I used to post Flickr-images through the ’embed’ feature of Flickr. I would copy the embed code given by Flickr into the ‘text’ interface of this WordPress blog. It worked fine for years, but this doesn’t work anymore. So I tried to use the “WordPress” button in Flickr, it didn’t work either. I tried this WordPress ‘how to’ guidelines, but it didn’t work either. At last I used IFTTT. That worked. But it is not really the best solution. With this IFTTT recipe I can’t post multiple images. I have to think to tag a drawing with ‘WordPress’. If I want to blog an image I already uploaded before to Flickr, this recipe doesn’t work either.
 
So if anyone can help me to embed my drawings upload on Flickr to this WordPress blog, I would be grateful.
