Inktober 4th – Hummingbird in flight

Going totally away from the typical inktober feel, here is a design made for Spring/ Summer ’19. I love how the yellows and purples compliment one another and if it was ever printed on a card, accents of gold foil would really make it shine.

Here is a pattern derived from the background of the bird illustration. I like the blues, but it needs an accent of some vibrant summer color. Maybe loosely in the flowers or in an offset effect. What do you guys think?

Inktober 3rd – Vintage florals

As promised I am staring away from the typical October feel. For my third inktober I wanted to do something more vintage that would work with textiles, rather than gifting. I absolutely love the blue-green in the leaves right now, so you will probably see more like that soon. Opposed to my regular very clean linework, this is much more expressive and I like how it gives the flowers depth. What do you guys think?

I can see the pattern working on wallpapers as well.

Thank you for following my Inktober project. See you tomorrow for a print made for spring of 2018.

INKtober 2

It’s October and I’m really feeling the autumn vibe. I promise it won’t be all fall images – for tomorrow and thursday I have something totally different planned 😉 But for now a pretty pumpkin and a pattern concept to support it. I have always had a soft spot for fall colors, but for the pattern I want to use striking bright colors and black. What do you think?

I am really liking how this pattern turned out. I can’t wait to play around with it in color once I have the time.

Have a pumkilisious day 🙂

It’s time for Inktober!

It’s that time a year again and I am so excited for Inktober this year. Last year I did small ink and quill illustrations and colored them with watercolors. I loved them and sold quite a few framed originals. This year however, I am doing something different! Change is good, change promotes learning. I will be doing ink pen sketches, making them into patterns and coloring them digitally. It is a bit ambitious I admit, so I only vow to color one part of the pattern during this month and creating the pattern in black and white for concept purposes. I will then take the best ones and color them in at a later time. Plan made, check. Executing it right now 😀

inktober 1 mushtoom

Last week I went on a forest walk with my mum and did a bit of inspired forest sketching. This is a little cute mushroom from my trip and below are more of my discoveries.

Thank you for reading this far 🙂 See you tomorrow for Inktober 2!

Thank you for the year of 2016!

Thank you all for following my artistic adventures in 2016! It has been a good year for me. It has been hard and full of career challenges, but I have also been very fortunate getting to work for dream companies. It has been a journey full of adventures and I have loved far the most of it. I have been lucky to spend 6 months living in Brooklyn with one of my best friends freelancing as an illustrator, I have spent three weeks traveling across the U.S. on a national park road trip with my boyfriend and then spent the last 6 months living in my home town in Denmark being close to my family. 2016 have had a little of everything and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I hope that 2017 will be as good as 2016 and I hope to approach every day with an open mind – always looking for the opportunity in every challenge and embracing happiness. Happy New Year everyone!

Falling Bat

Going away from all the cutesy imagery, I wanted to do something slightly more expressive this month too. A Bat seems appropriate this close to halloween. What do you think?
