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….

Balancing Act

Going through my sketchbook, I discovered this little guy. He was part of my Inktober 21 drawings, but I never posted him.

So here it is. Fancy a cup of tea?

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!

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.

Resting Day

Discovered this unfinished drawing I did a month ago in my sketchbook. I should finish it at some point but I also like it just in black and white as it is.

It also represents the mood of today. I would like to just stay home and be cozy.

Inktober Roundup

After I felt like I was doing so well with my posting habits throughout October I fell into somewhat of a slump the last week. I have been focusing on drawing and several online are courses that I am taking at the moment instead.

I finished all of the Inktober prompts, however, I am not really happy how the last 3 turned out as I rushed them, so I haven’t posted them yet.

Here are all the other ones that I am quite happy with. I ended up with 33 drawings even with the last 3 missing as I did more than one drawing on some of the days.

Do you have a favourite?

Inktober Day 27 – Spark

Inktober is finished. The last days passed by way to quickly and I am again 3 drawings short as I think every year. Halloween parties always come in the way…. Also I was working obsessively on another illustration project during the weekend. You will get a glimpse of it soon.

Anyway, I will do the 3 remaining prompts maybe later today. Meanwhile lets start the week with some cake!

Inktober Day 24 – Extinct

Who remembers?

The hours I spent recording my favourite music videos and TV shows… Only then to never watch the recordings again.

Inktober Day 26 – Connect

Remember this game? A classic.

It´s been years since I played it. The hamster is chewing on his chip out of frustration as he has been loosing repeatedly.
