Unexpected danger is the second book in the Skyline Trilogy. I knew immediately which scene I wanted to depict and what angle to draw. Yet again, I had to remind myself to keep it simple. Read more →
And here’s the final image in the series. It’s the only book that takes place not in the woods but in New York and I found it heaps easier to give it a sophisticated feel. Maybe it’s just because of no nature and more straight lines 🙂 Read more →
Do you know Netflix’s series Marco Polo and its beautifully inked intro visuals, done by The Mill in London? If not, here’s the link to the trailer. While it surely takes years of practice to come to that level of perfection, I wanted to try myself in watercolour/aquarell painting. Read more →
Braving the elements is my favourite book in an excellent series. It’s funny, exciting, suspenseful, sexy. I’ve read it several times and enjoyed it every time anew. Here’s a link in case you’re interested: Darkness by KF Breene. Be warned though: it is a paranormal romance. It has vampires, mages, demons, werewolves. And love. Read more →
Anna Lowe’s Damnation sure isn’t one of my favourite books, but there is one thing that just made me smile. The hero’s affinity to baked goods, in particular the heroine’s muffins. In romances, the male leads are almost tough guys and don’t show such a weakness. But I thought it endearing. The style and the motive of that illustration doesn’t fit the essence of the book, but I had Kate Hindley’s lovely hand-textured character drawings in mind and wanted to try it out. Read more →
Since my lovely husband gifted me with a Kindle, I started reading again. Mainly during those countless and endless night feeds of my second daughter. And because my brain was hormone-driven mushy, I entertained the little intellectual capacity that was still left with some easy, sugary romances. Read more →
My dear husband had another project idea of his and needed a logo for it. Currently he’s into playing a good old fashioned board game/strategy game called Star Wars XWings. It’s a small community that plays it but they are in need of a forum to post events, learn new tricks and keep a scoreboard, amongst other things. So, he set up a website and here is the link: Gamercluster.
A few months ago, I received an email by a professor from university. While browsing the web, he stumbled onto my address and flicked me a message. So happy, he did. He’s one of the best teachers and mentors I ever had and he has had a huge influence on me. Here’s his website: Volker Lehnert. Go, check out his amazing work!
After 3 years of being head under in mummy land, I finally have some time to get the ball here rolling again. I just updated the portfolio with the latest sketchbook (which took me almost 3 years to finish…*ahem*). Here’s the link if you want to check it out: sketchbook no.8
Baby pause caused me to be a bit lazy with personal project. I totally forget how time consuming newborns are. After almost 5 months, I slowly get some personal time back. My fingers start itching for some design. There’s a small project for my lovely busband on the line, so stay tuned for an update. I hope it won’t take another 5 months 🙂 Meanwhile, here are some pictures of the only creative outlet I did in the last months: some birthday cards & packaging.
