Surface Pattern Design

This month I have started the Make it in Design Course – Module 2! It is super exciting, as I am now developing real collections of surface patterns for licensing. This is something that I have been wanting to expand my career into for quite a while and I am very excited to finally get a chance to explore it further!

Here I am sharing my moldboard that I based my sketches and color choices on and below is the collection that I came up with. Let me know what you all think – I would love the feedback 🙂

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?

Inktober 16 – Flower girl

A small flower girl for inktober 16th. Sometimes I think that the reason we love to travel to distant countries with great nature is how large it all seems to us. Imagine only being a few inches tall, how beautiful even our own backyard be?

I am currently working on an exciting project for a new client in Australia! Unfortunately I can’t share it until it is published in February 2017. In the mean time though, I sometimes have some time to continue working on my own coloring book. Here are some lovebirds in progress for my bird book 🙂

Birds are such beautiful creatures

Yet another page from my new coloring book in progress. This is one of my favorites from the book so far. I just love drawing birds, and especially ones that are in mid air interacting with one another. How wonderful it must be to fly!

Back to the Sketchbook!

I am finally back in Denmark, my home country after spending the last eight years pursuing art in the U.S. I am super excited to be home and I have a whole new burst of inspiration from the new surroundings. I have been out of the sketchbook for a month and my fingers are crawling to get back at it. This morning I started with some light pattern sketches. I can’t wait to really get going!

December 23rd – My Advent Calendar

dec23wtext

December 23rd – The birth of a savior. For the most part I try to keep my work religious neutral, but it felt appropriate to have one religious entry this close to Christmas. This card is for all my religious followers or for you who just appreciates the beautiful scenery of the historical Bethlehem. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord” Luke 2:11. This is the 23rd illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.
