Having a mom that could easily be crowned 'the Queen of Mandalas', I decided to try out making some abstract work as well. So this weekend I sat down and made my first ever abstract illustration. The biggest surprise of all; it suited me better than I'd ever imagined!
What better way to start the weekend than with a freshly finished illustration?! This week's illustration challenge was to draw this beautiful portrait of Jean Seberg, an American actress from the '50s who unfortunately got more famous for the tragedies surrounding her personal life than for her big screen performances.
This week I've been working hard on a portrait of the very talented actress and director Lupita Nyong'o. I found a picture of her in a magazine some time ago and wanted to make a drawing of it, not just because she's beautiful but also because I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into the precious lace top by Erdem she's wearing.
Even though it's been a bit quiet over here, I've had some very busy and productive weeks working hard on new content, ideas and my instagram footage. To celebrate it's weekend I decided to share this little self-portrait I finished this afternoon.
This weekend I felt like drawing. I started to make a small self-portrait (12x12 cm/5x5 inches). Although it's not perfect, I'm happy with how it turned out. For me it was a good try out working with colored chalks instead of just grey and to sketch a portrait in a smaller size. Now that I've discovered a taste for drawing again, I know more will follow soon!
When my friend Tim asked me to design a birth announcement for her soon to be born daughter, I felt very honored and even more exited. Coco's birth announcements have been printed and sent out and both Coco's proud parents and I are very pleased with the design of the cards. In case you're looking for a unique, one of a kind birth announcement or a kids-design whatsoever, feel free to contact me. I would love to design something beautiful for your kid(s) too!
