November

dont get caught
dont get caught
it's only a dream
it’s only a dream
Don't get caught, it's only a dream

What can I say? I love my ink. This one is not a new piece but I haven’t really shown it off, I also love the sumi-e paper I was working on because it’s very playful (read: difficult to control) and it’s excellent playing up the textures of the ink mixed with the water. I hope this princess will guide you through November and keep you safe, inspire to dream yet not to dwell on unfulfilled dreams. See you in December.

Goodbye October

October
Full color illustration

October was a very busy month for me, so is November. In December I’ll be able to post more art, but for now – here is my Halloween-art that I managed to create between cold mugs of coffee, freelance and children with runny noses – the illustration is quite big and drawn with ink using a steel nib pen and color in Photoshop using a wacom intuos pro tablet.

I really miss drawing, I miss creating my own characters and letting my mind wander off to mysterious places, but all things has it’s own time and the benefit of being a 30+ woman is realizing there is no hurry, there is no hidden deadline in your own projects. If you wait, things fall into place. I guess it all differs, but because I’m usually working at a manic speed and don’t have to worry about not finding inspiration and because I don’t have doubts in my work-ethics I really have to learn to balance the other way around – don’t stress, some things are too damn great to be limited by the small breadcrumbs of time thrown in my Now – because I know I have more time Later, Later is the way to go.
