A quick thank you for all the generous gifts to Quinn’s baptism.
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.
It’s been a while since I posted something new. The reason: it has been manic with freelance jobs in the last weeks. On top came that I lost all my work related files since working as a freelancer (personal and work files). I’m still in the process of getting back whatever can be recovered. It goes without saying that I didn’t manage to do personal work at all, so this time I just digged out an old thing I did for my mum on mother’s day.
Last week, I watched the documentary film “Searching for Sugar Man”. And story, images and music still stuck in my head. Those posters are a little tribute to a moving and emotionally satisfying experience. If you haven’t seen this brilliant film yet: do it. It’s well worth it.
Since quite a while now, I am working on a picture book whenever I’ve got time and motivation. It’s far from being finished, but I’m determined to finish this personal project some day. Recently, I’ve got too many ideas that I start working on but never manage to bring further. It should actually stand on the top of my list of new year’s resolutions (which I don’t have, but IF I had it:) see a project through from start to beginning. So, today I’ll show you a work in progress. More images after the jump
I just updated the portfolio: sketchbook section with book number 7. I finished it a couple of weeks ago, but it took some time to digitalise the 80 pages. Don’t worry, I only show a small selection 🙂 It was such an efficient way of drawing that I decided to start another book with a similar style. Here is the link: sketchbook no.7
Yes, I’ve been a Star Wars fan ever since I’ve seen the first 3 movies. When we were kids, my brother and me put a tape recorder in front of the TV, just so we could listen to the audio/sounds in times when we weren’t allowed to watch them… It didn’t matter at all to us, that there’s actually not much dialogue in the movies. The sounds of e.g. fight scenes were enough to make us experience the movies again 🙂 More ofter the jump.
Reading lots of kid’s books to my daughter wears off: I made those prints to decorate little Miss’ room, trying out a technique that I learned during art school. I didn’t have the right kind of ink though. It dried too quickly. Next time, I’ll use printing ink rather than acrylics. More pictures inside.
