Follow Your Own Advise

Another week over…

When you think you know what is best but then you have problems to follow your own smartass advice…

Good to have a reminder.

You can also find this little guy in my Society 6 shop.

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.

Balloon Party

Capybaras are the life of the party…. or so they say.

The black and white version below is also part of my Capybara Colouring Book.

I would love to see your version of it!

Kangarooooooo

Watercolour and pencils. Bought beautiful Caran d’ache Luminance pencils and their colours are simply amazing.

Now I just need to learn of how to use them properly.

Camel says Hello

A random camel as a quick drawing practice of the day… It seems like I am developing a style…

And I finally updated and did my portfolio anew. Take a look!

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.

How flexible are you?

Another somewhat lazy quick sketch.

I think I am quite good with my flexibility but not anywhere near this lady with her monkey.

Don´t ask me what the monkey is doing there, he just happened to show up.

Changing Perspective Again

Another quick sketch inspired by Pinterest.

I am currently enrolled in a book cover design class. Looking at a topic and theme from different angles can often be eye opening, and also inspirational.

Pool Life

Kobbi the pug is waiting for summer. So am I.

I am certainly ready to go to the pool, if it just wasn´t so windy today…

More silly pug drawings you find in my first illustrated children’s story written by my Icelandic friend Norbert. The story is now also available in Icelandic for any language enthusiasts out there.

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.

The Dilemma with French Bulldogs

I am torn regarding French Bulldogs. I find them somewhat ridiculous, but also extremely adorable….

Opinions? They are certainly fun to draw!

Morning Walk

The best thing about having a dog is, that you are forced to go out in any wind and weather. Sometimes it’s tough but almost always rewarding.

Hello there! What has this little one spotted?
