Jaak De Koninck and Starbrook Airlines

If I weren’t studying architecture, I’d definitely be a fashion designer or a pilot. The lucky ones who used to read my previous blog can easily get the “fashion” part. However today I’m gonna touch on the flying part.

As a girl who loves travelling and exploring something new, it’s needless for me to say that flying is a great source of exctitement. Besides I am sharing this feeling with a great crew, just like the Belgian artist Jaak De Koninck. He is passionate everything about flying; airplanes, hostesses, people who feel excited about flying. This passion shows us itself by beautiful nostalgic water colour and oil colour artworks.

He paints even on stamps or 12 m2 canvas. And it’s also available to have his beautiful works by buying Starbrook Airlines chocolates. To be honest, the main reason for me to buy those chocolates is Jaak Je Koninck. I already have 2 tin boxes, some postcards and lots of paper package which are waiting to be framed. Framing a chocolate package? Don’t find it strange until you see those awesome works. I’d do a lot to have one of his original works to hang on bedroom in my new house.

Lists

DSC_0264 - Kopya
Keeping lists and taking notes consciously comes from creative minds. Just like me, I won’t be modest about it. If I have to muse about listing habits of creative and clever people, I guess that’s all based on the desire of controll. Having the documents of the things feels safe. Maybe they are all preparations for the upcoming unthought things, at least for me. When I watch a movie, listen to a speech or in a lesson a new list starts to be written on the notes part of my phone.

I am thinking of myself. Te first list that I’ve ever had is alphabet that daddy gave me. I was watching Sesame Street. Voila! I have learnt reading and writing by myself. I was 4 or 5. That alphabet was a beginning of a chain reaction. The first list that I’ve first made was the list of my friends from Kindergarten. Kindergarten was kinda dream. I still see my teachers there, they’re lovely and still concerned about me. Whatever…

The simpliest lists that I’ve made were about the books I’ve read and liked, the movies I’ve watched and liked, characters who inspire me… For exampe the one that I’ve made last year was about the things I’ve eaten every day. Moreover my recent list is about the money I spend every day. I also keep an agenda, feels like living more aware. Maybe I seem too obsessed on tidiness. Obsession? Maybe. Tidiness? Not at all. I like putting things in an order, not myself. Atully I’m tidy, mentally. The idea of organizing things makes me feel comfortable and satisfied. Moreover, stationaries makes this progress much more enjoyable. Why do Moleskine and Smythson exists?

That’s all for today, just something personal. Thanks for joining my inner speech.

Have a good time dandy people.

People tell me how colourful I wear and they wouldn’t dare to wear that way. (Just like bright pink pants and bright green t-shirt… Not neon, I don’t like it) I like colours. It makes me happy, that simple. There’s something about colours, maybe the energy it gives makes me feel this way, maybe the way how the people look at you. Whatever, I hardly recommend you colouring yourselves. Black is good, but colours are better. It’s a little bit cliché but I am thinking this way. What about you?
