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
I’ve decided to put some of my ink work on the designs I create for Rage On. Please enjoy dancing down the rabbit hole in this dress ❤
“She could be domesticated, her spirit could not”
Ink and a dash of gouache on Arches paper
It’s time to finish up my manuscripts but I try to do art in between whatever breaks I squeeze in. This week I’ll be packing a sold painting and shipping it to Norway, and also it’s time to do my Taxes, oh joy…. Wishing you all a good week!
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!
I found old acrylic on canvas pieces that I made a long time ago and decided to paint something new on top of it. I blocked out the old piece using acrylics and then I used gouache for the new artwork.
Have a lovely friday, weekend is coming up! Yay!
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!
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.
Work in progress, ink and gouache on Arches paper.
February in Sweden is flu-month. This year is the same, but today I’m picking up the paintbrush again. I’ll see you soon, I look forward sharing my worlds!
Have a pouty magical Thursday
