(pictures of my evaluation; drawings, books, architecture models of my house, magazine, architecture drawings, poster for cigarperformance with drawing by Lotta)

I passed my final evaluation, which also means I passed the first year of the Design Academy.
I can't believe this year is over. It feels like time has gone by so fast, although when I think back of the person I was when I started this and look at the person I am now, they feel so different.
This has definitely been the most intense year of my life (so far). I've never worked so hard, stayed up working for so many nights in a row, gone through such deep lows but also such high highs.
But it's been amazing. I got to know so many inspiring and wonderful people. And I've learned so much. I got accepted here with some 'graphic work', some photos and a few drawings. And now I've made chairs out of wood and metal, I've made ceramic vases, I did performances, learned about myself, painted huge paintings, drew a lot, made weird shapes, wrote articles, drew architecture plans etc.
But for now: Summer! I'm leaving for Australia this sunday which is amazing, but I will miss everyone here, after seeing them pretty much every day since this year started. I woke up to a text: "Bobby, what am I going to do without you? I already miss you." so today we did some Academy rehab, by hanging around school, drinking iced coffee. I do have quite a few wonderful non-academy adventures planned this week though, don't worry ;)


  1. Congratulations Bobby Blue. You are good.

  2. Haha ik dacht voor een moment dat je echt op de cover van Volkskrant Magazine stond en was zwaar onder de indruk. Ik weet zeker dat je die wel ooit zal halen.

  3. I know what your non-academy plans are for Thursday..
