IF | Wild

Oops, a bit too late for this weeks Illustration Friday, but this should have been my submission for the topic 'wild'. This topic really fitted to the story of my IF illustrations. They tell about the adventures of Bamboo the elephant and Kota the firefly. I'm not going to tell more about it yet, hihi. But I will keep you informed!


Last week I received one of my pillows from my Society6 store. My parents secretly ordered one for my birthday. Well, the shipping took a bit longer than planned hihi, but I'm still so happy with it! Thanks mom and dad! Do you also want a pillow or other product with my design? Check out!

Yay, my flyers about portrait drawings arrived! Soon they will be spread in local stores. Are you also looking for an original gift for a birthday, father's or mother's day, marriage or other special occasion? Or are you interested in a drawn portrait from your partner, child, pet or other beloved one? Grab your chance and feel free to contact me!

IF | Egg

A new submission to Illustration Friday. This week’s topic was ‘egg’. I’m really happy with the result. The IF illustrations are getting more and more narrative, colored and detailed. And therefore, more me. Also the sketching and working in Photoshop is getting better and better. I like the way this is going. Illustration Friday is such a good and fun exercise! 

Project ME

A new illustration finished! This one's for another project I'm currently working on. Soon I will tell and show you more about this!
Pencil, digital.

Exhibition in May

Woohoo. A new exhibition's coming up. In May I will be exhibiting my illustrations in the local library in Giessen. So if you're curious about my work, or if you're just in the neighborhood, you're welcome to visit my exhibition! Or maybe you're just there for some new books, hi hi. Then check it out too ;) I'll keep you informed.
