I made something totally different for a change. Not long ago I saw a video of master penman Jake Weidmann. There are actually 12 master penmen all over the world. They are all masters at handwriting and calligraphy. After watching the video I was very inspired to try something with calligraphy myself, because many people tell me that my handwriting looks so neat. This is the result. It’s 18 x 24 inch. The words ‘Never Give Up’ mean a lot to me. No matter how difficult things get, you should Never Give Up!
There are people who think of my autism as a handicap, or an illness. And they say I need to get well. I don’t see it like that. My brain is just wired differently. There are things which are very difficult for me, and even things which I can’t do because I have autism. But there are definitely also things which I wouldn’t be able to do if I didn’t have autism.

For quite a few years already I’m working on a comic book, with my little feathered friend as the main character. Here’s one of the panels.
