Spring is an inspirational time…!

Hi All,

Well it has been a while since my last post, and it’s time for a little update.

I went on a little trip to Gothenburg, Sweden for a couple days and it was really nice. It’s funny though how when you get back to your ‘home’ place you know exactly where to go. I know where to go have a nice cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun a la mega.

But my favourite spot in Gothenburg is to walk down to the Guest Marina, and just sit down watching the boats, smelling the sea and listening to the seagulls screaming.

During my three days there I collected some renewed inspiration which I have implemented in my latest illustrations.

I am going to add some blueish background to this one as well to give it more depth.

I love bringing out the graphite pencils every now and again and working on some different drawings, like this portrait picture for example. It’s a picture of my grandson and his daddy.

Well, this was what I had for the moment, I will be back next week with more updates.

Have a lovely week!

Happy Easter!!

i have not been posting in a while, it has been crazy busy at work and not much time for anything else. But now I’m enjoying a four day weekend and in a couple days I will be travelling to my home country for a few days. 

I have gotten a new set of pencils, this time I went for Derwent inktense water colour pencils, they give a vibrant colour when you apply water on your drawing. Today I have been topping up a few of my previous drawings and I am happy with the result.

I have also been commissioned to illustrate a children’s book, which I’m very happy about. At the moment I can’t post any pictures of it but perhaps at a later stage. So things are finally starting to move forward. To promote yourself it’s not always easy but my advise is to never give up 🙂

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!!
