Folktale Week

A collection of folktale-inspired illustrations for the drawing challenge that took part between the 23. and 29. of November 2020.

Day 1: Birth

Day 1 was inspired by the Russian fairytale ‘The Snow Maiden’.

Day 2: Ritual

Day 2 of the challenge was inspired by the Bulgarian Kukeri.

Day 4: Solstice

And the third illustration I did was inspired by nordic folktales in general and the day of the winter solstice.

I chose to draw colourful frames around every illustration – that were inspired by old Russian art.

I had a lot of fun doing the challenge though I only had time to fit in three illustrations before the folktale week started and then I hurt my right wrist so I couldn’t draw anymore (still can’t). Maybe after it heals I will continue with the other prompts and finish folktale week because I had already searched for so many more cool themes to draw!

Castle Rocks Map – Commission

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 PuTTY , I’d love to draw one for you.

Here’s how the commission process would look like:

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 ‘Am├ęlie’). Then comes the messy line art and when I’m pleased with the outcome puttygen ssh , I go over it with cleaner lines. Last but not least I colour it in ­čÖé
