It’s been quiet from my end during 2018. A lot of things has passed, some easy, some hard. It has made me stronger for it. I am so happy and excited for 2019 – a year with so many creative and personal plans and goals ahead. I hope to share much of my creativity here with you and hopefully some personal accomplishments as well. This is my 2019 welcoming illustration. I hope you like it 🙂
For Inktober 21st I did a cute little sleeping fox. I have been drawings a lot of more realistic or pattern inspired animals in the last few years and though it would be really fun to try to do something small, simple and cute. This is the second in a little mini series.
Something that seams to always go with the theme of October and the upcoming holiday Halloween is the scarecrow. I wanted to use that for an inktober drawing, but I am not a huge fan of scary things though. Hence I decided to make a not so scary scarecrow instead. This bird is definitely not scared of him, and I would probably be more scared of the bird in comparison (: A cute scarecrow and his companion for inktober 10th.
For my seventh inktober drawing I wanted to challenge myself and draw another child. I have somehow managed to avoid drawing people for a few years while working as a freelance illustrator and wanted to use inktober this year to challenge myself in several areas. I normally don’t draw people or use color much, so my goal is to have at least one forth of my inktober drawings include human characters and all be done in color! I feel like I am making good progress thus far 🙂
Though it is October and the strawberries are long gone out of season, I could not help myself with this little hedge hock for one of my inktober drawings. I have wanted to draw a hedge hock for a while, but haven’t found a purpose for it. So here he is – let’s just say that he is enjoying a very warm and delayed autumn. He doesn’t care that it is October because he has his belly full of sweet berries (:
Inktober 4 2016 – The sweet delight of eating berries
December 18th –From All of US to All of you, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Time to get all those presents bought, wrapped and stored in a safe location before Christmas! In my family the kids deliver the presents to everyone else before taking their own. It is a great tradition for teaching kids the joy of giving and making other people happy. This is the 18th illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.
