the chic chicks

This week was very nifty, I've been working on the Christmas commissions, some handmade work as well, made the home more cosy for the winter, upgraded my workspace, saw the first snowfall for this season and finally I can listen to my December playlist. But I also got in touch with so many friends I haven't talked to in ages and some I saw just two days ago, some that are away and some that live close by. And even though so many things happened this week I would like to make it about friendship. So I'll celebrate that with some cute portraits that were gifts for friends from friends. So cheers to you ladies!

the young folks

We do write our own stories and luckily, I get to paint them. And I think there is something special about memories encapsulated on paper and in the shape of cute, bobble-head-like creatures. Today's stories come from two couples and they are about love, about people coming together and sharing unforgettable moments, about music and coolness and about places and memories caught in those tiny details. Some cool new stories to add to the "different kind of portraits" collection.

undertheivy storylines

One of the projects I was involved for the past two summers was with the Undertheivy events. They create parties under the stars and I create cute ivy leaf creatures that stick with you. You might remember the stickers I've made for them recently, if not, here's a quick reminder. 

The sleeping ivy-beauty - pen on paper | 21x29,7 cm

Since they're on hiatus until the next sunny season kicks in, they've asked me to make a reminder for all those who can't wait to go out again. And we've put the idea under the fairytale scene of the sleeping beauty and her prince.
