The things I do right now

Meet my cluttered workspace, Scrivener is up (the manuscript program to work on, seriously makes my life so much easier) and favorite mug filled with coffee and oat-milk. Not goats milk. Oats. And yes I’m getting there, writing wise, but also I finally decided on how to incorporate the illustrations and which technique I should go for (ink, watercolor and digital). I’m pleased so far.

Here’s some design elements. Sorry for the blurry image, my new Huawei phone which seems to be broken from day one is not great with either texting nor photos. I’m thinking of switching back to my stone age iPhone 4S. The bigger illustrations are freshly scanned but I’ll show you more later, I want to play around with them a bit more and place them nicely on the pages. I’m using In Design a lot, but is there some other program you enjoy when working with text and images? I’ve only tried Id.

 

Work is calling, so xoxo for now

New illustrations

 

Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun with my old sketchbook illustrations, rendering them (so I call them new but if you follow my work you will recognize some of them) and right now I’m using the new designs in my Rage On Shop which is updated about weekly.

Work is going smoother, juggling motherhood and business is no walk in the park but I’m finally getting the hang of things. This makes me more busy so actually I have an illustration I need to finish today and so I have to leave you already. Thank you for following my work here and see you soon!

Shop News

 

Hello!

I finally got a new place where you can find my designs and buy them.

I wasn’t sure where to go and used to be a bit here and there but the internet changes and we adapt. You can head over and look at my Tea Tricks shirt on the new shop platform called Rage On. The designs are also available on canvas and some home decor, it’s not just clothes. I do love the big comfy sweatshirts though, they are my go-to outfit (sweather + yogapants + glasses= cat lady sans cat look).

I used the designs from my “I can’t even…” coloringbook available on Amazon for a lot of the designs. It feels nice to see them on shirts, never thought my sketchbook girls could be so useful haha

 

 

 

It’s nearly Spring now in Sweden and I’ve spent the larger part of Winter being sick in various colds so I need my time, I’m so behind my work schedule it’s not even funny. With that update: my manuscript calls. See you around darlings!

Viral Ink

So flu season isn’t quite over yet it seems. These new ink works are probably part ink and part virus, not quite my idea of going viral. I can’t wait to get better, there are many exciting things awaiting just around the corner. For now please enjoy my “Copycat” and “Fly Queen”.

 

I’ll tell you more later.
