This week’s illustration for Hello Giggles is a collection of Queer Eye inspired swimwear ánd body-positivity. Each bikini or swimsuit is inspired by one of the members of the Fab Five. Can you tell which swimsuit was inspired by which #fabfive member?
In case you’re wondering: some of these exist (avocado bikini, floral Bardot swimsuit). The rainbow swimsuit is from Forever 21 but sold out. The other two I made up, but you can find similar styles online.
A new month, means a new calendar page! My calendar is sold out online at the moment. But don’t worry, I will soon have a new, slightly updated, version back in stock. In the meantime, I do have lots of other prints and cards available in my Etsy shop, in case you feel the need to shop 😉
Today is the first official day of summer! (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). You never know with the Dutch summer, but we have been lucky this year with already a few weeks of perfect summer weather! 🙂
We’ve finally had a few lovely sunny days here! It was almost too hot to draw but I still managed to finished another calender page.
This is actually not exactly what I’ve been wearing most at the moment. We’ve had nothing but rain for the last weeks. But yesterday was sunny and today is looking good so far, so I thought this would be a good time to share my “June’ illustration for my upcoming birthday calender (which has been a little bit delayed because of work on other projects, but it’s coming soon!)
Here’s a second (and final) illustration about my sunny winter getaway to Fuerteventura, before I go back to winter. I had such a good time there: the weather! the people! the yoga! the food! the cocktails!! I wish I could go back there right now, because it’s just too cold here!
I’m back from a sun-filled winter break on Fuerteventura, where I met many lovely people. Among them where Margot & Youna, two real Parisian girls. They were só stylish and cool that I just had to draw them! I know this is already my 3rd Parisian-themed illustration, but hey: pourquoi pas?
I just returned from a short but lovely camping trip to the beautiful Dutch island Schiermonnikoog. Since we had to carry our own luggage the whole journey it was definitely more of a camping than glamping experience, and this is basically what I wore the whole trip.
Wearing: fanny pack, The Sting – mixed bracelets, Ala and Anna+Nina – sunglasses, Sacha – bikinitop, H&M – flip flops, bought on holiday in Greece – shorts, vintage Levi’s – bikini bottom, Newyorker – Make up bag, Kruidvat – sleeping bag, Hema – top, Mango.
Summer Style Essentials, Illustrated
Another fun project for Sparknotes. I was asked to draw a series of summer (fashion) essentials. These are 2 of the 8 illustrations I drew. To see the complete slide show click here.

It’s been a while since I had time to work on this blog, but I’m back! We’re in the middle of a Dutch heatwave and I don’t mind spending some hours inside, hiding my pale skin from the sun.
My heatwave favorites are: black a-line top, H&M – big sunglasses, Sacha – scarf (to protect my head and hair) bought at a festival market -shorts, H&M – leather sandals bought on holiday in Greece – bikini bottom, Newyorker – bikini top, H&M – mixed bracelets from Ala, Anna+Nina and Etsy.
