I really enjoy drawing people who are sleeping, those moments are always very precious. Almost magical, both absent and present in a natural state of being. Usually I first ask permission to draw someone, but not if they are sleeping and then I don’t know if they will wake up or how they will react.

I once joyfully placed my finished drawing next to a sleeping person at Schiphol airport but did not see his reaction after waking up.
