A local florist exhibited some of my drawings.
Thijs Sterk saw them. "Come over and see me" he said, offering me to print a lithograph on his newly acquired press. During the white Xmas of 1964 I made my first print.
It appeared that Thijs Sterk knew everything about graphical techniques.
By lack of printing felt, a brand new cloth was used which we quickly bought at the grocer's.
When I carefully lifted the cloth and the paper, the miracle had happened: I felt like a magician.
