It´s Raining Cats and Dogs II

Maybe I should start drawing cats too. At the end of the day I will always remain a dog person though.

Inspiration of funny dogs comes from Pinterest.

It´s Raining Cats and Dogs

That expression came to mind when I looked out the window this morning. So naturally I felt like drawing a funny dog as the sketch of the day. Trying to get back into the habit of sketching daily.

I also felt curious of where the expression comes from and turns out it is not quite clear.

Honey Badger don’t care about Lemons

Be like honey badger!

If you fancy getting your own supportive honey badger, check out my Society 6 shop.

I’ll be adding more honey badgers at the end of the week to the collection.

Coffee first. Scheme later.

Honey badger also need their coffee. Who else is a coffee person here?

Black or milk?

As the boyfriend would say, give me coffee as dark as my magic (or my soul) … Depends on the day.

For more honey badgers, visit my shop.

Capybaras are back!

I self-published another book!

For all those capybara fans out there, I put several of my capybaras together and made a colouring book!

The book has 18 unique capybara ink illustrations that you can colour in. Put some funny mustaches on the capybaras and add creative backgrounds.

You’ll also find some fun facts about these adorable rodents throughout the book. So it is not only fun images but also a little bit educational and entertaining.

More details about the book you can find here.

Or go straight to Amazon and order it. The perfect present for young and old.

Dropping Ink All Over

When you try to do a quick sketch and the ink flies all over the desk…

I think it still took me about 30 min to do this one. So not that quick after all.

Wine Time

I do like a good wine. This is the last of the 100 people challlenge. Although I am already continuing with it and have reached #105 by now. I really do love to see the improvement I went through and how easy it has become to sketch people. I just need to work more on the speed. As I feel sometimes its takes me way too long.

Cheers and have a great weekend!

To My Sister

When life gives you lemons….

This whole thing started as a sarcastic joke. Now I can find out what you do when life covers you in lemons.

Last week I lost my sister. She hated it when I called her little sister. She always made a point that she was 2 cm taller than I. She was the strongest person I knew and always managed to pick herself up no matter how terrible life was to her. She always told me she is the stronger one and I agreed. She always ended up comforting me despite she being the one that was the one that needed help and comfort. Life gave her a lot of lemons.

She did not deserve any of the things she had to suffer through from epilepsy to a Narcissistic mother which is the source of all evil in our lives. Persons with covert narcissistic personality disorder are pure evil and take lives as my best friend had to experience last year as well. Her brother was encouraged to drink himself to death by his narcissistic wife over the course of 6 months. All we can do now is spread awareness about the evils of covert narcissists.

I guess life is not fair and we can only learn how to cope with it. This is for you taller sister, I love you and I will miss you terribly.
