*Latest work* Holy Courtney Stodden

For the December issue, BULLETT Magazine interviewed sensational Courtney Stodden and her mother. We made the artwork illustrating the article. A year ago Courtney made the headlines with marrying Doug Hutchison at the age of 17. She is quite loud about her religious beliefs, putting an emphasis on God being her only plastic surgeon. While respecting her Christian beliefs (in glitter) we played with her teenager meets woman, playboy looks meets church aesthetics, coming together with her infamous prune lips and her fashion.

Queens & Hartjes

Hartjesdagen is an old tradition in Amsterdam. It has existed since the Middle Ages and boasts a history as colorful as its followers. According to local folklore, it was the only day in the medieval calendar when the regular public would hunt wild deer (harts), a sport traditionally reserved for the nobility. The game was then roasted on big barbecues and eaten in the streets. Hartjesdagen developed itself into a type of cross-dressing carnival, where men dressed as women, and women dressed as men. A typical scene was captured in the oil painting entitled Hartjesdag, by the artist Johan Braakensiek in 1926. WWII later interrupted the tradition but it was finally revived in 1997 on the Zeedijk. Hartjesdagen finishes with the crowning of the Queen of Hearts (best cross-dresser).
