Heppies's Profile Picture
Leneke Hurkmans
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Welcome to my page and gallery on Deviant Art!
You can find my digital drawings here.
I am a hobbyist and I make my digital drawings in Corel Paint Shop Pro.
The Heppies, my own cartoon characters that I simply love to draw have the leading role here!
But you can also find the Seddies here, and different drawings, sometimes an animation.
I draw the Heppies since 2007, when I start a drawing, I do not know where I end.
It always is a surprise. I love to take this journey over and over again!

Early 2017 my newest OC came to life in good,old PaintShopPro.
He is a furry friend with a lot of bunny features, but he does do things different than bunnies :-)
He is so suitable to make little drawings with, I love to draw him and hope he keeps on inspiring me.
Oh, his name is Witje.

Thank you if you decide to watch me, I really appreciate that because Deviant Art is so big.
When you watch me, I'll watch you too.
Thank you if you fave my work!
Thank you for a llama, I like to collect them, I send them, and you always get one in return when sending me one.

I also have a Twitter account, you can follow me on:
This is in a mixture of English and Dutch as Dutch is my native language.

My main reason to be here on DA is to share my drawings, and talk to other artists about art and see their work!

Have a nice day by Heppies Watch For Watch by Heppies Thanks for the Llama by Heppies
I also have a page on Facebook for my drawings and photos this is the link:


Having the week ahead off from work, I was looking forward to doing a lot of drawing but I feel a kind of artblock for almost a week now.:grievingly :grievingly :grievingly  I hope new inspiration returns, in the mean time going to finish unfinished Heppies or patch old ones up like I did with Bob Belcher Heppie almost a week ago. :painter: Emoticon drawing 
And going to give my Wacom Intuos another try.
In the time to come (life expectancy is set upon a few months now)  we are going to say goodbye to my father.
He is incurable ill and we decided not to let him have a big operation ( both legs halfway amputated) which was the only chance to
get rid of the not healing, growing, big wounds on there. But his dementia has progressed too much in the passed two months, and
he is not able anymore to decide on this operation, let alone face it, and face with amputated legs later on.
Also the risk of big complications is too big; he still is not putting on plenty of weight and now they do not expect him to do so anymore.
So at this moment, family and people my father knew drop in for a visit, realising he now still recognizes them, and that
his situation may become much worse any day now.
Sometimes it feels like reuniting because my parents' family ties where not tight, so I get to see some of them after years.
I wish the reason for all these visits would have been a more happy one!
In the end they will give him strong painkillers and sleeping pills so he won't be awake then anymore.
Since my father is aged, and I know he has lead his life the way he wanted it, I know it is okay to stop the suffering and let him hopefully
pass away quietly, still I dread the days to come when all you can do is sit next to him, and he sleeps and does not respond anymore.
I try not to think about that too much.
I had my last real good conversation with him on my own, just him and me, shortly before he moved to the nursery home.
He thanked me for everything, he was so sweet then. I never had a very close bond with him, but my love for drawing is my heritage as
he made drawings up to a high age until his hands would not cooperate anymore.
So thanks pop,Heart 3D  for showing me how drawing can be fun, and I wish you would have been younger and better, as your grand daughter
(my eldest) is also drawing! I know you would be so proud!
