Capybara teeth never stop growing

Like with other rodents, capybaras’ front teeth never stop growing. Their incisors are strong and chisel-like, making them highly effective at cutting through grass.
In order to keep their teeth to a reasonable length, they get worn down from all the eating they do.

This little capybara and many other fun facts you find in my colouring book.

Capybaras Love an All-You-Can-Eat Salad Bar

Have been eating heaps during the weekend. Time to get active again.

Capybaras are vegetarians and they eat lots of greens, sometimes more than 3-4
kilograms a day! They feed on grasses and aquatic plants, but also fruit and bark can be on the
menu.

This little chef and more fun facts you can find in my Capybara Colouring Book.

Have a beautiful Monday!

Hiding From the Rain

Pouring rain today and I am hiding under the blanket. This capybara was not so lucky but was caught by the downpour while camping.

This capybara is also part of my capybara colouring book which you can find here.

Have a great weekend!

Pool Time II

Just putting out more pug illustrations from our Nobbi & Kobbi – Best Friends book.

Pugs are fun and silly looking sometimes. That’s at least my opinion.

If you and your kids like pugs, then this children’s book may be for you. My first attempt at illustrating a children’s story.

Pool Life

Kobbi the pug is waiting for summer. So am I.

I am certainly ready to go to the pool, if it just wasn´t so windy today…

More silly pug drawings you find in my first illustrated children’s story written by my Icelandic friend Norbert. The story is now also available in Icelandic for any language enthusiasts out there.

Book Release!

After several edits I am happy and proud to announce that my/our first children´s book is available to order!

With my friend Norbert, who wrote the story, we have been working on it for a while now and are happy to finally have the print version ready!

The story is about two best friends that find out how long a working week can be! A week at work can often feel very long and sometimes, not everyone is happy with it. In the end though, it pays to be patient.… and Kobbi, the little pug, is very patient.

Learn more about the book here or go straight to Amazon to order it.
