Autumn Mood

It’s starting to feel like autumn. I always love dressing for a new season but I do hope for some more summery days! (And I’m trying really hard not to get sick.)⁠

What I Wore: Festival Look.

I’ve been super busy with work lately. I haven’t had much time to update my social media (or to go outside really). Except for one very sunny festival day last Saturday where this was my festival look.

Expectations vs Reality: Holiday Style.

Above an illustrated recap of my recent trip to Northern France. Below you can see the (very stylish and sunny) picture I had in my mind before going. Here now, is the more realistic “after” version. The weather was pretty bad (no bikini needed) and the trip certainly had some challenges (including being stranded hours away from our apartment at night, and no taxi willing to pick us up) but the bread, wine and cheeses were so delicious it made up for a lot and almost made us forget about the rain!⁠

Reality: no bikini or aftersun needed. Raincoat instead.

Reality: zero time spend in the sea.

Tool Time

I started making this illustration of my favourite art supplies about two years ago and then, halfway through, completely forgot about it. Today I found it again and finally finished it! I initially started making this because I got a lot of questions about what products I use to make my illustrations. Often I get asked what apps I use. No apps, it’s al hand made! I mostly use products from Faber-Castell or Royal Talens.

Happy Thrift Shop Day!

Happy Thrift Shop Day! Thrift store shopping is so much fun because you never know what kind of unique treasures you might find. Buying used items instead of new ones is also good for the environment ánd your budget; a real win-win-win situation!⁠

Throwback August Style

This is the illustration for the August page on my birthday calendar.  It’s an older one but still pretty close to my IRL beach/picnic look today.
