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.

What´s your take on fashion?

Another attempt to use those Chameleon markers and another scene from my Capybara and Friends – Colouring book .

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…

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.

Pool Party

I wish I was somewhere with warmer climate right now. I think this is by far my favourite scene from the Capybara and Friends Colouring Book. What do you think?

It’s also the illustration I did last for it.

Adventurous Seas

Just like life, a lot is going on below and above sea level.

This is another seen from my latest Capybaras and Friends Colouring Book.

Happy Monday!

Own Your Style

Another capybara image. I do like to dress up every once in a while. Have fun with your clothes and own your style.

Me in my Imaginary Garden

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.

Washing Day

After the holidays, maybe it is time for a scrub.

This wash room team is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.

I would love to see your coloured in version.

Riding into the New Year

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

Happy New Year!

This monkey ride is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.

Feasting Time

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.

Taxi Ride

Capybaras are excellent swimmers and some species like to use them as a free taxi service too.

Capybara Madness

My latest Capybara Colouring book is online!

If you are looking for a last minute Christmas present, you can get it here.

A colouring book for young and old with 15 unique and fun drawings, featuring capybaras and their friends.

Throughout the book you will also learn more about these adorable rodents, as each image is accompanied by fun facts.

Colour them in and bring them to life!
The drawings are one sided full page images in order to avoid bleed through of other images. Take out the page after you are done and frame the image. I would love to see your finished pages!

Capybaras everywhere

I seems like I will be able two more of my open projects just in time for Christmas!

# 1 is a short story about Mr Fox. I am just in the last review stage.

# 2 is another Capybara colouring book! Yes! I am still in love with these poker face rodents and have so much fun drawing them. That’s why I put together another colouring book (as I am still working on my writing skills) with 15 brand new drawings! The drawings are of course again accompanied by old and new fun facts about capybaras. (Here is the first book if you haven’t heard about it yet.)

So if you are still missing a last minute Christmas present or cannot get enough of Capybaras (just like me), then this may be for you.

Here is a sneak peek. It will be available online by the end of the week.
