It’s time for this months playlist. Listen to it while you clean or cook, or try to ignore your neighbours in times like these.
It’s mixtape time folks. Here are my most listened songs from January. Always feel free to leave song recommendations in the comments here or over on Instagram, I’ll listen to them!
A collection of all the 2019 mixtapes (I think I didn’t make one for August though). Funny how you can see my style change a lot throughout the year. Click on each image to get to the mixtape.
Some other mixtapes throughout the year:

A collection of all my mixtapes from the year 2018. It’s really hard for me to look at them again, but I wanted to declutter my website and my Spotify so I fused them all into one playlist 🙂
(I’m only missing the September mixtape cover, I can’t find that anywhere)
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
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 🙂

In this blogpost you can find one of my recent projects in university. I had a course this semester where we made some book covers. I plan on making some more over my summer break because I had a lot of fun drawing those.
