Sunday Sketching + Much Confusion


One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is find some time to practice drawing and spend a few mindless hours sketching away. This past Sunday morning I spent it jamming to taylor swift while drawing this quick portrait (you already know by now that with me a "quick sketch" usually takes hours!) - which, by the way, you'll soon be able to see a step by step guide of how it came to be on Craftsy's blog. There's a lot of shadows left to draw but, as I did it solely for practice, I don't think I'll be going back to it. I don't know yet, maybe?

On a different note, I have been wanting a change on this blog for over a year now, and I really crave a brand new look (I had been working on a new design from scratch last year but then I got really busy and I don't even remember were those files went!). 

These days I'm not quite sure if all I want is a new look for it or a complete overhaul of the whole thing and a brand new direction. I think it might be a manifestation from the instability and need for change in other areas of my life right now; and wanting to recreate this space into something that feels more familiar, personal and steady, but I'm not very sure exactly what I want to do about it right now. I'm so busy that I don't think I'll even have the time to sit and decide where I want to go with this and then so something about it, but I at least wanted to put it in writing to try to sort out my thoughts, I don't think it helped much tough - I'm still indecisive about it. Ha!


Actually... I think I might be closer to knowing how I want to move forward with this than I thought. I'm thinking I'd like to take my sewing to a different blog along with another project of mine and reassess this space (or maybe a completely new one? again, so indecisive right now!) just for illustrations and try to dedicate more time to drawing to get some commercial work - which I could really use at the moment!

This has been more longwinded that I anticipated (and longer than usual!) but it turns out it has helped me put my thought in order a little bit after all. I don't know where this will al go but what I do know is that i need some change, either here or elsewhere.

ILLUSTRATION // Skin Care



I was very happy today to carve out some time to work on this illustration. I really wanted to practice product drawings and add a little something different to my portfolio. I suddenly have found myself very inspired this week - I hope it lasts very, very long. ;)

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of you new followers and also the lovely ones who have been following for a while and sticking with me through very long periods of radio silence. I always appreciate your wonderful support and kindness.

If you'd like a print of this illustration you can find it here.

ILLUSTRATION // Léa Seydoux



A while ago I shared a photo on instagram of a sketch I was drawing as a present for a lovely friend. Since then it had sadly been sitting on my desk waiting for me to find some time to finish it up.

Late nights and Saturday mornings are my favorite moments to draw and paint. I got up real early today and had the whole morning to finish and scan this illustration. You'll also be seeing it pop up on the Craftsy blog soon with tips on how to draw portraits.

You can find this print in my shop here. Happy Saturday lovelies!

ILLUSTRATION // Bridal Robes

I am very excited to share with you guys a project I worked on for Anita, the brilliant designer behind Girl With A Serious Dream.




I illustrated some of her most popular styles and she later created a beautiful dressing room feature on the website. I love it, it's so cool! You should check it out here, it's so much fun!


We also worked on designing some promotional banners for the website, which were recently revealed with the release of her gorgeous new spring collection.
