A blog post with an illustration for a very very old story. Or actually it’s a fable from Aesop called ‘The Fox and the Crow’.
This week’s assignment for the E-course Make Art that Sells, we got the assignment to create an illustration for this little story.
I thought it was a fun coincidence that I made illustrations for this fable years and years ago. I think it must’ve been in…
Another week has passed and then another one, and then I almost forgot to blog about it!
But here it is, week 2 in Make Art that Sells part A: Home Décor.
For the Home Décor week, we got an assignment to design a set of plates with succulents as our main theme.
We learned a lot again this week. It’s all about staying open to possibilities with your art. When creating art you are not really…
Wederom weer heel leuk nieuws te melden!
Ik werd geïnterviewd voor het nieuwe ‘MAAK magazine’.
Het MAAK magazine werd bedacht door Anke van der Meer (ankepanke.nl) en werd met behulp van Nikki (Nikkidotti.nl) en Anne (www.viervandaag.blogspot.nl) uiteindelijk realiteit.
De eerste uitgave heeft als thema ‘Papier’, en het magazine zit tjokvol leuke interviews, DIY…
This is a sneak preview of one of my new pattern designs which is available for licensing.
Hi everyone! I started a Surtex Countdown! The upcoming 41 days I will update sneak previews of my latest pattern designs,
Maybe that was what Lilla Rogers thought when she came up with the new theme for our ‘Make Art that Sells’ Bootcamp March assignment.
The answer: Have +/- 300 artists create jelly art and go nuts on colours and details, haha.
Again it was time to sketch, and I drew lots and lots of jelly and jelly related things. Here are a few of my sketches. I made more, but I just made a couple of photos to…
Zaterdag kwam mijn man terug van de winkels met een lief bosje tulpen in de mooie kleuren rood en geel. Hartstikke mooi en lief natuurlijk, maar ik had ze nog niet in de vaas gezet of ze hingen slap!
Voor de grap had ik een fotootje gemaakt op instagram en deze ook op facebook gepost. Direct kreeg ik van alle kanten tips om de plantjes weer rechtop te krijgen.
Iemand zei dat ik wat minder water in…
I made a new birth announcement design for some friendly folks.
They specifically asked me if I could paint the card for them because they were fans of my painterly style.
I normally work digitally, but painting is always a fun challenge for me! :D
They didn’t know at first if the baby would be a boy or a girl, so I made 2 versions.
The big sister sits on a bench with her little baby…
I thought it was time for another blog post with some really exciting news.
Since a short while I joined the new, Germany based agency, Wundergarden.
The young and fresh agency was founded very recently by my very talented colleague and friend Maria Bogade. She is focusing mostly on the children’s book market, and
she now represents a lovely list of wonderful artists. Amongst them my…
Finally, after a lot of consideration and contemplating I decided it was time for me to follow a sewing class.
For a couple of years I’ve been making all these fun patterns which I made available for fabric (and wallpaper) in my Spoonflower shop. But I never really got myself to sew things of my own fabric.
I tried a couple of things and taught myself some basic ways to sew in the…
