This is a custom illustration that I made for my yoga/surf buddy Margot, who has an amazing style that I would describe as “bohemian vintage badass board babe”. She also has a second hand e-shop called Second Wave Shop if you like this style you should definitely check it out.
This is actually the second drawing that I made of Margot’s style. When I first met her on Holiday I was so impressed with her and her friend Youna’s style that I made an illustration of their holiday style. (See below.) Feel free to contact me if you would also like a custom illustration of your personal style.
Hello March! A new month means a new calendar page. This month has a bit of a book lovers theme, because well, I love books and reading is a perfect way to spend time while waiting for spring to start. I’m reading a Dutch novel called Nooit meer slapen (Beyond Sleep) at the moment by Willem Frederik Hermans, which takes place in northern Norway. What are you reading at the moment?
I’m not much of a trend follower but I am totally embracing the neutral colour trend at the moment (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) Any trend that makes beige seem fresh and not boring is impressive, if you ask me ;)
I’m also still reading ánd working on my own little Happiness Project and my 19 goals for 2019, yay!
Today is Warm Sweater Day, a Dutch national initiative that draws attention to saving energy. If we all become more aware of the energy that we use, we can help protect the environment. So today (and why not every day?) turn down the heating a little, put on your favourite warm sweater and save energy. Extra points for wearing a vintage sweater! 😉 #warmetruiendag
When life gives you lemons, you better find a good way to use those lemons! Like in your illustrations or in a nice cocktail (or both!) These are some of my 2019 favourites, so far.
Can you believe it’s already February?! Me neither, but it really is, so time to turn my calendar to a new page. If you’re quick you can still get one of the very last copies of my 2019 calendar on Etsy.
This is an illustration from my perpetual/birthday calendar that fits very well to the Dutch weather at the moment… it’s so cold…brrrr! (Calendar available on Etsy, here.)
