a wild adventure

Back with another colourful portrait after yet another chaotic week. You know those moments when life kicks you in the nuts just for fun, then the universe thinks it might be a great idea to join the fun? Yeah, I've had that kind of a week. Trying to stay positive in these times is no easy task but drawing and painting makes it a bit easier. And seeing how these illustrations make people happy fills me with hope as well.

For this one, I got the chance to travel to a country I've never seen before, even if just on paper. It was so much fun adding all those little pieces that defined the savannah and traditional african culture and colouring it was even better.

aurora skies postcard

I received this little project to create a space-themed postcard and of course, I didn't think about it twice. I've put a little bit of everything, some gradient skies, some auroras and loads of stars, again feeling grateful that I can practice my skills in galactic watercolour paintings.

I can't wait to get back to my Cosmic Girls project and dress some lovely ladies in stars, nebulae and galaxies. I've been putting it on hold lately, because of some personal matters that have unfortunately taken over my entire time, energy and enthusiasm to work. But since I'm better now and back on my feet, I'm more determined than ever to work on myself, my personal projects and my art commissions.

atomic bear

Since another project between me and Uman Shop is cooking as we speak, I thought I'd share with you an illustration I've made for them but wasn't picked up for the final cut. It was a notebook design, that was a step further than the cute little monsters I usually do for them, but I like it nonetheless. And I can add it to my "From the sketchbook" collection.
