Some of the embroidery hoops I made this fall and winter. All of them are presents for loved ones, most already gifted.
A map commission I made for a lovely customer last week. He wanted me to draw him a map for Castle Rocks (where some of Stephen King’s books take place). I had a lot of fun drawing it & if you know someone who’d like a custom made map – write me an email, I’d love to draw one for you.
Here’s how the commission process would look like:
All the recent tarot cards I illustrated for my inktober challenge. I will be glad once this month is over, stressed out but still glad.
Here I collected the tarot cards 8 to 15, all from my inktober challenge.
The Hanged Man: Peace through self-discipline, freedom from distraction
Death: cycle of creation, destruction & renewal
The Devil: temptation, attachment, control
The Star: hope, healing
The Moon: subtlety, mystery, instinct
The Hierophant: tradition, spiritual authority, deception
The Sun: clarity, simplicity, new life
The Tower: a revelation, drastic shift in perspective
Here are the first seven tarot cards that I’m making for inktober. The theme I chose is: Weird & Wonderful. The cards are all about strange people and lovely creatures which may seem scary at first but really aren’t that much different from you and I.
Here’s the list for all the cards:
The Fool: Freedom, Fearlessness
The Magician: Skill, Transformation
The High Priestess: Juggling, Multitasking
The Empress: Fertility, Responsibility to nature
The Lovers: Love, Beauty, Union
The Chariot: A Triumph, A Breakthrough, An inventive solution
The Hermit: Sacrifice without regret, Self-care
Hello friend, long time no blog post. A lot of art happened in between, so I thought – why not collect most of it here. This post is filled with: Autumn art, a lot of witches, a pattern in different colours, two printables you can download on my patreon and a hogwarts student card. Scroll down & enjoy.
And I also drew a new banner for this website!
I hope that you are doing well, I’m very glad that you found your way to this page 🙂
The last of the illustrations from the challenge I had with some friends plus some art I recently drew as well.
and now to some other art I made in the last weeks:
These are some of my more recent book cover sketches. I really enjoyed making them, searching for little stuff from the stories to include on the covers. (If someone from Book Publishing is reading this, maybe you could consider me for some book cover jobs? I would really enjoy designing a classical book set.)
Find out how I plan an illustration from start to finish. First I decide what I want to draw and look up inspiration in the big wide web. Then I figure out the shapes and where I want to put things. Then I write a list of things I want to have in the picture, a garden gnome, a painter, pots, pans, toaster, marmalade, a pig lamp, amelie, photos … After that I look up references for those things (here all from the film ‘Amélie’). Then comes the messy line art and when I’m pleased with the outcome, I go over it with cleaner lines. Last but not least I colour it in 🙂
Little speed paint video:
I currently have this thing with some of my friends, where a word is posted everyday and everyone in the group has to draw something regarding that word until the next day. Here are some of the things I drew. Most of them are a bit strange but it’s a very good thing to practice new stuff – and to have to draw something everyday.
