If I haven't been posting a lot lately, it is because a few weeks ago, I started collaborating with an amazing brand here in Barcelona, full-time. It is a great opportunity to just draw all day long and do what I love! In the last few weeks, I have been working on their online magazine and illustrated a mini-guide of Paris, oui oui! I hope you will like it!
When I lived in Holland not so long ago, my house was full of plants. I really like having plants around me. Unfortunately at the moment since I moved to Barcelona, I haven't been able to put as many plants as I wish in my house, and that might be why I am drawing so many plants. I hope you will enjoy this small guide to air-puryfing houseplants as much as I enjoyed to illustrate them!
It is this time of the year already!! I wish you all a very happy, healthy year full of laughter and love! For me, 2014 was full of new. A new country, a new place and a a decision to follow my passion of illustration. It was a very good year, and I feel so incredibly lucky for what I have. I don't really have resolutions for 2015, or 'plans', but rather ideas of projects and hopes, and I will sure do my best to do great work that I can be proud of, so I can start living of what I can do best. I learnt a lot in 2014, and I will make sure to be in constant learning this year. I am always a bit impatient, to learn so much in a short amount of time, but I just have to take my time!
A few weeks ago, Self Magazine approached me to make a hand lettering with the words: "You're brilliant, amazing, gorgeous, hilarious,...". I was so thrilled they contacted me so I said YES! This was my first hand lettering paid job, so I was pretty nervous about the result! Here are a few of the proposals I made and the final artwork. In the end, we picked one of the first sketches I made.
And this is the final art:
What do you think? I think I had a preference for number 2 or 3...
