Summernight Escapades Mixtape

I’ve collected some tunes

That smell of summer

Found them in the sand in some hidden lagoons

They shimmer and shine in various colour

(And now they are yours and mine)

Some songs for campfires & road trips. Click here to get to the mixtape.

Trust Me I’m the Doctor

This blogpost is just a collection of my favourite Doctor Who videos :)) Ignore it, if you don’t watch the doctor – but let me say one thing – you should!! I hope to come here in the future and still miss Rory & Amy so much, and Rose and 10, and 11 in general. What’s your favourite Doctor Who villain? Mine are still the Weeping Angels, I hope to one day have one casually standing around in my garden, frightening my visitors. P.S. let me know in the comments if you have a funny or sad Doctor Who video for me.

Some Bookcover

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.)

From sketch to finished illustration

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 🙂

Big/Tiny World

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.

Gouache Paintings

Hello there, in this blog post you can find some of my recent gouache paintings. In the last half a year I only drew digitally and while I had a lot of fun with it, I started to get a kind of itching in my fingers to make something analog again. So on a rainy afternoon – as I stood at the bus stop next to the university I saw the art store over the street and decided to buy some gouache. I am having a lot of fun with this new medium and can’t wait to get better at it.

I also tried doing the Blissplantweek (a drawing challenge from the 14th to the 20th of July) with gouache. The challenge hasn’t started yet, but I already finished the paintings 🙂 Oh, and here you can see how I paint in three steps:
