COOKIE & BERRIE JOY

I am working hard. As if working full time, having kids and running races isn’t enough fun, I accepted a graphic design assignment. I don’t know what I was thinking. But I hate lay outing power points and footnotes!!

Luckily, I squeeze some time out for enjoying drawing. And now even for a short blogpost, friends!

I’ve been drawing not only with pen & watercolor, but I also discovered digital coloring, but drawing with a so called Boogie Board:

I applied this to a few quotes too! They were drawn by chinese ink, but it’s a lot less messier to color them digitally. And I have my fixed palette, so there no big surprises with matching colors (which I still prefer to do with traditional media).

Also, I had some good old drawing nights, with ink and experimenting with gouache, straight from my soul.

Then, I had a fun illustration assignment. I can only show this work in progress, as the client hasn’t published the finished drawing yet.

And last but not least, I entered my last MATS e-course from the lovely Lilla Rogers. I know the workflow by now and produced a Christmas card around the theme ‘cookies’ in two evenings. They’re off to the printers, envelopes and matching stamps ordered! Soon available in my Etsy shop!

Oh and, for dessert of this post: fall is there! So to end this post, a few lovely berries for you. 🙂
