I think ink is still my favourite medium to draw with. I haven’t picked any particular topic to draw this year but I will just follow the official Inktober prompt list and see what comes out of it. I think I will experiment creating different characters.
Let this owl look into her crystal ball to tell you what happens next.
It’s the beginning of Inktober! I haven’t started with the Inktober sketch just yet but will get to it soon.
Meanwhile I tried to draw something a bit different, inspired by a Draw this in your style challenge on Instagram . I haven’t really been doing people illustrations for children’s books, but I think I am quite happy with my first attempt.
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, whichyou 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.
