Rabbit girl and ostrich. I wanted to try out my new watercolour paper and, inspired after being on pinterest for what feels like forever, I came up with this …
Had this idea for a drawing after reading the book The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. Thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was the second book I read by Ishiguro, the first one was The Remains of the Days which was also excellent.
Also I finally tested my new watercolour paper. So consider this a practice piece.
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!
And the fox drawings are part of my Mr Fox Colouring Book.
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.
There was this art vs artist posts on Instagram and I am late to the party but this was the image I put together.
It has been a though year with many downs put I have certainly learned a lot illustration wise. I still feel like I have a long way to go until I get to where I want my illustrations to be, but hey, it’s a journey.
Curious to see how my style and skills will further develop throughout the year.
What are you looking forward to?
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.
Capybaras have webbed feet and it makes them excellent swimmers.
They can dive and hold their breath for five minutes at a time, and their ears fold back when they are underwater so they never have to worry about water getting stuck in their ears.
This diving capybara is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.
Fishing for turtles?…..

After the holidays, maybe it is time for a scrub.
This wash room team is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.

Let’s see what the next year will bring. It will be an interesting ride for sure.
Happy New Year!

The mood right after the holidays – after eating way too much and too much socializing, but it was totally worth it.
This sleepy capybara is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.
Did you have a lavish Christmas feast? We for sure did! Still digesting it.
Christmas is the time of the year where you eat way too much food, while in the good company of friends. At least that’s what it was and means for me.
This illustration is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Coloring Book.
Another sketch I had forgotten about for a project that didn’t work out. I still quite like it. Santa’s reindeer meets a goat.
…and happy holidays!
I wanted to do a proper Christmas card but ran out of time. But I found this sketch that I did last summer for a book project that didn’t work out.
Capybaras are excellent swimmers and some species like to use them as a free taxi service too.
