I hope you are all having a wonderful & relaxing Christmas! Thank you so much for following this little blog and supporting my work.

MATS B / Make Art That Sells

on
07/12/2015

This autumn I decided to sign up for the Lilla Rogers MATS B (Make Art That Sells) Class. It's a five week class with a new assignment every Wednesday, to be completed by Sunday. This was great fun and also pretty intense to juggle on top of my other illustration commissions! Every week we learned about a new market. First Paper, then Baby Apparel, Scrapbooking, Editorial and Party Paper. There were interesting interviews with art directors and artists as well as Lilla's weekly review of the assignments. I look forward to doing the Bootcamp class next year as well.

All projects I created during this class are available for licensing, get in touch if you're interested!

I'm already excited about 2016!

Frankie Magazine / Anne Of Green Gables

After a super busy two months, I'm finally catching up on blog posts! This beautiful issue of Frankie Magazine with the beautiful cover by Monika Forsberg came out a little while ago. Inside you can find my cover for Anne Of Green Gables, one of my all time favourite books! I am forever sad not to have glorious ginger hair and freckles, but at least I get to draw them as much as I want.

I added 16 new and colourful postcards to my Etsy shop! This range was created for Captain Card, a shop in Potsdam, Germany. Lots of cats, bunnies and peculiar creatures - all of my favourite things to draw! If you're interested in carrying these wholesale that's amazing, simply contact Captain Card directly.
And if there's anything you'd like me to stock in my Etsy shop, let me know and I will try to make it happen. Meow!

Pattern Project / July 2015

on
10/08/2015
Here is my round-up of my patterns from July. These patterns have been a great way for me to experiment with colours, shapes and try out new things and I've learned a lot since January. Every August it feels like the year speeds up and suddenly it's Christmas again! But until then I got a few more patterns to make & hopefully sit in the sun a bit and enjoy the rest of the summer.
As always, these patterns are available as prints an on products here in my Society6 shop. And if you're interested in licensing any of my patterns, please get in touch!
