Dragonfly Businesscards

Hello everybody!

Today I decided to finally create a new design for my businesscards. I was planning on doing this for so long and it feels so good to finally actually have done it. Also I'm really satisfied and think they represent my art quite well. Oh I love dragonflys, aren't they just the prettiest creatures out there?
A tattoo like that would actually be really cool I think...(not that I'd be brave enough to get one..)

So yeah, I'm just waiting for the prints to arrive and can't wait to see how they come out.
If you want one, simply commission me. :3

Anyway, here's some work in progress for you.

thumbnail sketches and pencil drawings
 Applying some colours, oh I just love to work messy like this, it's so liberating even though it looks really bad..:,D
The lineart really safe everything and keeps it together. It's kind of magical, to see how everything falls into the right place piece by piece and just...makes sense.

Some Illustration I finished today... I really dislike those colours, they were alright at one point but then completely got out of hand. Also the scanner made it even more pink than it really is, the photographs are slightly more authentic (but blurry), ah it's just not my day today.
Anyway, I decided to ruffle it off so if  you'd like to win this by any chance, simply stop by at my facebook page. Good luck!
Going to catch some sun now. :)

Pastels, water colour and white gelpen.
Also some sketches done in the park, oh I love those Sequoia trees.

Trick or Treat!

Get the candy out, or let them storm your house!
Hello everyone!
I just realise how I completely neglected blogging during the last month and I feel honestly sorry about that...
I've just come back from my summer vacation in Germany now and am eager to start all the exciting projects I'm planning to do since quite a while already. A break was kind of needed but it feels so good to be drawing and painting again.
For the start I'm gonna introduce a bunch of new characters to you. I'm working on a new children's book and guess what it will be all about..? :)
It's the first time for me to work with an author and I absolutely enjoy it so far and am really excited about how this collaboration will come out.
So yeah, enough talking. Have a look at the sketches now.:) 
It's all quite rough but should give you quite a good impression of what I have in mind..


You'll be seeing more of them soon! 
(And more regularly from now on again..)
