One Week 100 People

It took me much longer than a week, due to the flu, but I eventually finished them all. I also was colouring some of them in and still want to colour in the rest. I really struggled in the end to get to 100 but I can also see a definite improvement from the first page. I haven’t been drawing people for a while, so this was a great exercise.

Next I think I will do 100 animals šŸ™‚

One Week 100 People III

Here come number 10 to 14. Combination of watercolour, coloured pencils and for number 12-14 I used olive green ink for the outline that I bought some time ago but never used.

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 childrenĀ“s book?

Picture Perfect

Looking for another last minute Christmas present?

I finished project #2. My first own little story about the adventures of Francis Fox. Join him on his quest to take the perfect picture.

The book is available here as paperback or eBook.

Happy 4th Advent!

Be a Honey Badger

Came back from holiday, full of energy and eager to work.

I got started by finishing the honey badgers I drew a couple of months ago. A few of them are still unfinished, but get ready for a week of honey badgers.

If you could be anything you want, be a honey badger! They are the most resilient tough bad-ass animals out there!

Another week over. This year just seems to fly by.

Happy weekend!

Sleepy Dog

Still learning how to use my new Caran dĀ“ache coloured pencils. I have a vision in my mind but so far I have not been able to reproduce it on paper yet.

Practice makes perfect, so I will keep on drawing and see what comes out of it eventually.

This is what happens when you want to use all your new coloured pencils at once. A coloured mess.

Oh well. At least I tried them all out. I will try again. But I am also on the way to buy a few more coloured pencils. Just in love with them!
