Time to be a Honey Badger again

I found this one when going through last years images. Another honey badger poster I created for my Society 6 Shop. Will add it online asap as I very much like it.

What do you think?

I also framed some of my honey badgers and I absolutely love them!

Join Me on the Catwalk

What´s your take on fashion?

Another attempt to use those Chameleon markers and another scene from my Capybara and Friends – Colouring book .

Join me in my garden

Another scene from my Capybara and Friends – Colouring book which I colored in with Chameleon markers. Just for the fun of it.

Meanwhile it’s still snowing here. I don´t think we can expect spring before June this year…

Stormy Seas

Another Inktober 21 drawing that I didn´t post previously.

Apparently I do enjoy drawing boats, but I don´t like to be in them. Also we had now in average one storm per week for he past 2 months. Good winter in Iceland. Other countries have spring, I´ve been told….

I´m a ray of fucking sunshine

Found this guy in the beginning of my sketchbook. I got inspired by a t-shirt with above’s headline and though a shoe bill would fit the phrase perfectly. I think they are pretty cool!

Morning Coffee

I need at least one. Either black (like my soul) or with loads of milk, Latte like. Everyone has their preferences. How do you like yours?

Take your Pet to School Day VI

The things that can happen when you bring your dog to school (or to the office…)

Did you ever take your pet to school?

Take your Pet to School Day V

Continuation of the drawing practice I did in November.

Tried to use coloured pencil instead of ink for the outline. I kind of like both. The clear lines of the ink but also this slightly softer look of the pencil.

What do you think?

It’s Monday again. It´s not back to school but back to work…

Art vs Artist

I made a last one of these Art vs Artists collages. Also more for me as I enjoyed taking a look at my work from last year.

Below are my first proper attempts of watercolour illustrations. I still feel like I have a long way to go. But practice makes you maybe not perfect, but better bit by bit.

Happy weekend!

Pool Party

I wish I was somewhere with warmer climate right now. I think this is by far my favourite scene from the Capybara and Friends Colouring Book. What do you think?

It’s also the illustration I did last for it.

Adventurous Seas

Just like life, a lot is going on below and above sea level.

This is another seen from my latest Capybaras and Friends Colouring Book.

Happy Monday!

Art vs Artist III

Once I got into doing these image collections, I couldn’t stop. So here is another retrospect of drawings of last year. I had pretty much forgotten about the honey badger series I did!

They are also still available in my Society 6 shop in case you are looking or an original present.

And the fox drawings are part of my Mr Fox Colouring Book.

Art vs Artist II

I kind of liked the art vs artist set up and I thought it would be nice to reflect on some of my other drawings that I did throughout 2021.

So here is another one. People and animals in ink and watercolour from last spring.

Me in my Imaginary Garden

Full blown snow storm raging outside. So its nice to be inside all warm and cozy, dreaming of imaginary worlds.

This nature capybara is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.
