How to sell Jelly!

How to sell Jelly!

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…

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…

Pillows and such

Pillows and such

Hello again,

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…

Hi again.

During the bootcamp we get one assignment per month for a duration of 6 months. These assignments are meant to stretch ourselves creatively as an artist and help us…
