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!

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.

Pool Time II

Just putting out more pug illustrations from our Nobbi & Kobbi – Best Friends book.

Pugs are fun and silly looking sometimes. That’s at least my opinion.

If you and your kids like pugs, then this children’s book may be for you. My first attempt at illustrating a children’s story.

Be Like a Duck

Be like a duck. Remain calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath.

– Michael Caine

I think I’ve finally developed quite a good routine with my daily drawing practice. This time without ink.

Brown Pelicans

Brown pelicans are the only type of pelican that dive in order to catch prey. They glide low above the water and when they see a fish they fly to a height of 10 m, fold their wings back and plunge down into the sea.

When Life Gives You Lemons

I did like the idea of the first capybara I had drawn in October surrounded by lemons and thought I revisit it.

Which one do you like better? Number 1 or number 2?

Crawl up a Mountain

The last of the Inktober prompts – Crawl. I guess better late than never.

Yes, I am on a Capybara trip. I enjoy their facial expressions and joyfulness. *sarcasm off

Inktober Day 5 – Blade

It took me a while to figure this one out. And I am not sure where the idea came from in the end. Maybe my need for sun and the beach?

Mr Fox went snorkelling today to look for a precious sea shell.
