Not sure where this ostrich is going, but lets say he was depressed because he really wanted to fly and realized that he couldn’t. So when the girl came along and saw him she had an idea, helping him and his wish to fly….
Once I got into doing these image collections, I couldn’t stop. So here is another retrospect of drawings of last year. I had pretty much forgotten about the honey badger series I did!
And the fox drawings are part of my Mr Fox Colouring Book.
Have you lost your compass?
Where to go from here?
Tried something completely different as well for the raven prompt. Although I don’t feel like drawing this character is really me. I really prefer drawing animals and I feel like I haven’t found my style yet when it comes to drawing people appropriate for children’s books. I will keep on practicing though.
I am still on track with my Inktober drawings, I just haven’t managed to take photos and upload them yet. They will follow shortly.
Who else is doing Inktober here?
Fly away with me….
Continuation of introducing the Adventures of the Little Fly.
Something was different in the garden of the little fly. The flowers seemed to let their heads hang and also the bees flew slower than usual.
I thought it is about time to introduce the second children’s book that I have been illustrating. It is now available on Amazon.
Unfortunately the story is only available in Icelandic, and I don’t think there are that many Icelandic readers here. But maybe there are aspiring Icelandic learners. It is certainly suitable for them as it is intended for children 6 years and older.
The first book I ever illustrated was the story of Nobbi and his pug Kobbi, written by my friend Norbert, which you can find here.
The Adventures of the Little Fly is written also by an Icelandic author, Rúna Vala, and tells the story of a little fly who lives in a tree in a garden. Puzzled by the changing seasons and the change the garden goes through the little fly sets our on unexpected adventures.
The fly has no name as it is just a fly, not a very small one, but not a very big one either. Just about average.
After drawing 100 people it was about time to throw in a random pelican in between.
This week flew by so fast. Just like this rocket man.
Have a good weekend everyone!
I dunno…. You tell me what´s going on here.
I found some red ink from last year.
November weather has arrived.
Fly away with me!
I love those fly trap plants. We had one and ended up feeding it. Not with foxes though, just with flies.
Inspired by Mr Foxes balloon trip which started back in January, he now made his way to this remote outpost up in the sky. Followed by Mr Mouse of course.
Where is your journey taking you this weekend?
Fly me to the moon….
Start of a new week. The pelican series will come to an end soon. As soon as I finish my pelican book!
I realized after drawing the pelican above that I have drawn him before. See below.
5 years are between both drawings. Which one do you prefer? I remember that the one below took me ages to finish. The one above was pretty much a 10 min sketch!
So this week once again just flew by quickly.
As the weather forecast is fantastic for the next couple of days, I will be off to a hiking trip in the Icelandic highlands. I also promise that the pelican series will come to an end soon. Latest when Inktober starts!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Off to the countryside to barbecue some fish. We not gonna catch it ourselves, that is too much work. But the eating part, we certainly can do.
Colourwise this pelican is one of my favourites so far. What do you think?
Happy weekend everyone!
