Mr Fox and the Giant

Today we had a truly beautiful sunrise at noon. Icelandic winter skies can be beautiful if the weather doesn´t try to kill you. Shortest day of the year is almost upon us.

The Mr Fox story continues. But I am still not sure where it leads to….

Have a lovely Sunday!

Foxy Pelican Season

Still looking for a special present, either to treat yourself or someone else? Then look no further!

I finally managed to put up a shop with a couple of illustrations at Society 6 and Red Bubble. They have a great variety of products that you can get these lovely illustrations printed on.

Let me know what you think. Is there anything else you would like to see in it?

How about a little pelican to brighten up your day?

Wanna Visit Me in My Shoe?

Got inspired by a fabulous pair of high heels. I would like to wear them but then I like my feet more. I think it is simply not worth it to endure the pain. I have tried many high heels over the years and if I should one day come across the perfect pair I will grab them.

Until then I will simply enjoy my more moderate heels.

Inktober – Wisp II

Experimented with masking fluid for the wisp. It worked rather well I have to say. What kind of spirits have you encountered in the forest?

Mr Fox does not seem scared. He is rather surprised about the apparition it seems. Or maybe he just plays it cool?

I Wanna Listen to the Radio

I think we need some cheerful music on this dull and grey November day. The clouds are hanging so low, it almost feels like you can touch them.

Mr Fox and his struggles with the radio – part II. This was part I.

I am the king of my castle!

Ok, drawing this one made me absolutely happy and I love how it turned out!

Inktober Day 15 – Outpost

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?

Inktober Day 13 – Dune

Sand boarding! Never tried, but would like to. Although I imagine falling to be quite nasty. I rather have my head buried in the snow, as it happened countless times while snowboarding, than in the sand.
