TYING THE CAT ON THE BACON
What a fun underwater world! I made this illustration as part of a pitch for a children’s book publisher in search of a new illustrator for their books (they requested the pitched illustrations to be ‘adventurous’). I made the drawing in ink on paper first and continued on Photoshop after scanning it. I quite like the use of dry media brushed in Photoshop, it gives a more textured look.
I made this illustration in watercolor paint and gauche, after watching the documentary JANE on Netflix. It’s a beautiful film about the inspiring life and career of Jane Goodall and all the work she did with chimpansees in the jungle of Tanzania. Later on, I used the illustration to pitch to a children’s book published in search of a new illustrator for their books. Since their theme was ‘adventure’ I found this painting quite fitting!
It’s happening again! I’m packing my bag to explore the Americas for 6 months. Like I forgot all about this travel-game, I find myself wandering what to bring, what not to bring. How clearly I remember loving a certain piece of clothing or thanking the gods I brougt a headlight and not a torch. I imagines drawing out the content of my travel bag would somewhat help me pack! I think this little dress-me-up-doll turned out pretty cute :)
YOU ARE MY WORLD
I drew this illustration on a small piece of paper; using a black pen and some colored pencils. My boyfriend liked it so much he framed it and hang it in our house :)
This illustration is made in Photoshop using different kinds of brushes. I drew the outline on paper first and scanned it in later.
After months of working at the prettiest urban jungle in town, I made three plant studies on a few of my favorite greeneries! I first made pen sketches and digitalised them afterwards. With the use of Photoshop I added colour and text.
I made this fun little drawing of our cute team at Wildernis Amsterdam, the coolest urban jungle in town :)
KING OF THE WORLD
8 MARCH: INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
Ever wondered why there’s no International Men’s Day…? (pssst…because they don’t need one)
Power to the girls, stick it to the man :)
