When Life Gives You Lemons… Drink Margarita!

Yep. So there is an option for everyone.

Which one are you?

Lemonade, Tequila or Margarita? Or do you prefer to just eat the lemon?

When Life Gives You Lemons

I did like the idea of the first capybara I had drawn in October surrounded by lemons and thought I revisit it.

Which one do you like better? Number 1 or number 2?

Mr Fox and the Giant

Today we had a truly beautiful sunrise at noon. Icelandic winter skies can be beautiful if the weather doesn´t try to kill you. Shortest day of the year is almost upon us.

The Mr Fox story continues. But I am still not sure where it leads to….

Have a lovely Sunday!

Crawl up a Mountain

The last of the Inktober prompts – Crawl. I guess better late than never.

Yes, I am on a Capybara trip. I enjoy their facial expressions and joyfulness. *sarcasm off

Just One of Those Days

Where you don´t really know what to do, but would like to do something, but you also cannot be bothered to move…

I find that an appropriate title for this image. Unless you have a better idea?

Foxy Pelican Season

Still looking for a special present, either to treat yourself or someone else? Then look no further!

I finally managed to put up a shop with a couple of illustrations at Society 6 and Red Bubble. They have a great variety of products that you can get these lovely illustrations printed on.

Let me know what you think. Is there anything else you would like to see in it?

How about a little pelican to brighten up your day?

Take Me Out for a Walk

The good thing about dogs is, that they force you to go out in every weather. Unless you have a dog that hates the rain and you are the one that has to force your dog to leave the house.

Here the temperatures are way below freezing, but we will head out for a walk nevertheless. Even without a dog. Have a nice weekend everyone.

Pool Time

Kobbi the pug decided to head to the pool to chill out with his favourite yellow duck. He loves hanging out in the water. Can someone get him a drink?

I Just Stay Where I Am (or The Weather Today)

As the title says. This little pug is going nowhere with strong winds and below freezing temperatures out there.

I really love this little guy (although I am not a fan of pugs at all). I love dogs, the bigger the better! What about you?

But I drew him last winter for an upcoming project I have been working on with a friend. Stay tuned!

Wanna Visit Me in My Shoe?

Got inspired by a fabulous pair of high heels. I would like to wear them but then I like my feet more. I think it is simply not worth it to endure the pain. I have tried many high heels over the years and if I should one day come across the perfect pair I will grab them.

Until then I will simply enjoy my more moderate heels.

Inktober – Wisp II

Experimented with masking fluid for the wisp. It worked rather well I have to say. What kind of spirits have you encountered in the forest?

Mr Fox does not seem scared. He is rather surprised about the apparition it seems. Or maybe he just plays it cool?
