Sleeping Time III

Another rough sketch. Same scene as before. Had this black paper for a while and finally got around to try it out.

Any comments and feedback welcome.

Would you like to see this style in a children´s book?

Sleeping Time II

I am still experimenting with different styles. Similar scene as before, this time in watercolour and pencil.

What do you think?

Sleeping Time

I wanted to experiment with different techniques last month.

This is a piece in pencil and coloured pencil on paper. I think the paper was not quite ideal but I still like the texture of the chair.

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!

What´s your take on fashion?

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…

Have a great weekend everyone!

Colour me in

I got bored so I started colouring in my capybara drawings!

If you want to do the same, you can find this little Mr Fox and capybara illustration in my Capybara and Friends – Colouring book.

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!

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 X

Experimenting with putting character sheets together…

What kind of pet did you have as a kid?

I still think that dogs make the best pets.

Take your Pet to School Day VIII

While we currently have the snowstorm apocalypse raging outside, here is another curious pet.

I remembered that when I was young, I really wanted to have a chinchilla as a pet. I don´t know much about these rodents , but they are certainly cute.
