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
Hello there, there’s not going to be a mixtape this month because I didn’t really listen to any music that isn’t on countless of my other mixtapes already. So I thought I would show you all my monthly favourites. I’ve been doing this format for four months now & I hope to one day look back at the things I drew and remember the time I had then.
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.
The second month of the year is already over. My days are packed with watching organisation videos on youtube and sketching. Full to the brim with yoga (30 days with Adriene), getting up early, trying to read as many books as I can and enjoying the early warmth of spring. The minute the sun isn’t there, I can see unhappy-me coming back but I want this year to be different from last. And I quit smoking and eat less sugar. I think I’m getting back to being a bit more myself again. I didn’t really tell you, but last year was kinda bad. Anyway, enjoy my mixtape. I don’t want to shout out too much about myself into this empty void, I bet only people I know will read this (yes I mean you, I’m internally blushing right now).
Hello friends, in case you didn’t already see it, you can now watch my two studio vlogs on my instagram! Just click on the images to be taken to them. I would have uploaded them on here but the exceeded the maximum upload size 🙂 I had a lot of fun making them and I hope you like them as much as I do.
