Inktober Day 13 – Roof

Clearly inspired by The Peanuts. I thought Mr Fox and Mr Mouse might like this as a napping spot.

I am still fully on track with my Inktober schedule this time. Only late in uploading the images. How is your Inktober going?

This image clearly reflects today´s lazy Sunday mood.

Rainy Day

I have been drawing a lot and because of that completely neglected all of my social media. I really need to find a balance.

I am currently in the process of creating a proper portfolio for children’s book illustrations, and I have been working on a few new drawings and techniques with watercolour, ink and pencils.

I am also in the process to finish my first own book, with the main character being the one and only, Mr Fox! More about that soon.

Meanwhile Mr Fox assists Mr Mouse to dig a hole in the forest… He hopes to find a hidden treasure somewhere.

I am also looking for first names for Mr Fox and Mr Mouse. Any suggestions are more than welcome!

Have a great week!

Picnic with Friends

Mr Fox in colour!

What is better than a meal in good company. Another doodle trying out those Chameleon markers. Fun to try but too much hassle to use those pens if you ask me. But I do like the outcome.

Mr Fox invited Mr Mouse for a surprise birthday picnic in the woods. The weather is good and the group is enjoying their cup of tea.

Have a great week.

Egg Painting Time

Mr Fox and Mr Mouse got together to paint some more Easter eggs. Who else has been painting eggs this year?

If you are too lazy like me to paint eggs how about making your own Mr Fox Easter print instead?

You can also get this image as high resolution file to print with different background on my Ko-fi page.

Happy Easter.

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!

Inktober Day 24 – Dig

I am the king of my castle!

Ok, drawing this one made me absolutely happy and I love how it turned out!
Which one is your favourite Inktober drawings so far?

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 7 & 8 – Fancy & Teeth

Time flies when you are having fun. Weather has been gorgeous and I have been out hiking and took a dip in a crystal clear river with refreshing 2 degree Celsius today. Nothing makes you feel more alive than that!

Meanwhile Mr Fox got all fancy with Mr Mouse, and showed his teeth for a photo.

War Paint

This is what you didn´t see. Before Mr Fox decorated himself with ornaments, he turned his friend Mr Mouse into a fierce tiger mouse!

Once finished, they went off to party.

Inktober 2019 Day 31 – Ripe

Last but not least. Almost forgot to post this one, the last of the inktober prompts.

Happy first advent everyone!

Trying to catch Mr Mouse turned out to be too exhausting. Therefore little Mr Fox stuffed his face with ripe grapes instead.

Inktober – Catch me if you can!

Little fox was still hungry after he caught the fish. So he started chasing after a mouse he saw passing by.
