French Holiday Style And Adventures! In Drawings, Of Course.
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!
Above you can see how I envisioned my French Holiday style. In reality no bikini or aftersun was needed. Raincoat instead.
We hand planned to be in the water a lot and to try Stand Up Paddling. In reality: zero time spend in the sea because of the bad weather.

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! 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!
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.
It’s Lazy Day today! Probably the easiest “special day” to celebrate and a perfect excuse to take a break and enjoy some precious “me” time without feeling guilty about it, so enjoy your lazy day! xx
Happy Book Lover’s Day! What are you reading at the moment? I have Elizabeth Gilbert’s City of Girls packed as my holiday read. Can’t wait to start!
Hi everyone! Tomorrow I’m closing my Etsy shop until August 14, because I’m taking a small break. So if you need anything fast, today is your last chance to order until I’m back.
Less than a week until I’m off to France for a short break. Time to start thinking about what to pack and hoping for nice weather. (It doesn’t look very good at the moment!🙁)
Hello August, I have a lot of nice plans for you! 🙂 This is the August page from my 2019 calendar.
