the plant project - strelitzia

Continuing the plant project with something more wild: the strelitzia flower. It's unusual shape also makes it known as the crane flower or bird of paradise flower. And it's also the favourite flower of another person that has recently become my family, I call her my second mom. She also loves orchids and the colour green. But she's more dear to my sister's heart, so that's why she's a part of this project.

And here's the flower under the skin

little heroes save the day

I don't usually check my art folders in my computer, but when I do, I realise I'm really behind schedule with editing and posting stuff. And so, I've found evidence of a customisation project I've done earlier this year, about the same time I made the bike book (actually they were a two-in-one project). It was done for a cool hair-dresser who also commissioned the batman book a year ago. So this notebook, like the others, will serve as an appointments agenda and also for writing down plans to conquer the world (just kidding). I enjoyed creating kiddish superheroes and honestly I hope can find some time (or drive) to make one for myself one day.

the plant project - the tulip

This is the beginning of a new project and also something new for my line of work. It all started as a tattoo project for my sister but at the same time for many others dear to me. I don't want to give it all away from the get-go, because it's such a long process that I'll be out of words by the third illustration.

Nevertheless, I'll start off with a splash of red: the tulip. This flower represents a friend of mine, who's in love with tulips and the colour red. I once made a pillow with these flowers for her so it's quite a no-brainer what gifts we nee to make for her. 

And here's the tulip under the skin.

the stickers - third act

The entire three-part super-skull series of stickers has finally come to an end. They will be missed collected. Although the last round can still be found in Uman's shops around the country or on their website, check it out for more details. I'm stoked for all these years we've been collaborating creatively and for all the wonderful feedback we've received on this. You've seen the illustrations, so here are the final stickers, from the already 10th edition.

Can't wait to start sketching for the new ones, I'm already starting to get ideas. Until next time, here's what we've done so far: the sticker collab journey for Dushky X UmanShop. I'll keep you posted on my facebook page with progress photos.

Until that time comes, enjoy these sticky creature until the new ones come along, you can check them all out here.
