A quick sketch of some of my favourite things right now. I’m trying to shop less but better. So less impulse buys and more things that I can enjoy for a long time. I’m also looking forward to 2 more Ben Howard concerts. Money spend on experiences is always money well spend, especially if it’s Ben Howard (in my opinion anyway!). While working from home I like to listen to podcasts to keep me company and informed. I recently discovered By the book and I’ve been binge-listening ever since.
PS. Nothing on here is sponsored, just things that I really like.
I don’t have time to do many of these “what I wore” drawings any more. But here’s one with my personal October favourites. I especially love my new faux-suede skirt. ♥
I was asked to come up with my own personal favourite fashion look (more on this later!) and it came out something like this. Including some old favourites from my own closet and, of course, a glass of rosé.
“You must always know what it is that you want.” Some wise words from The Alchemist. So here is my wish-list for spring 😉
(PS. the pizza tote bag is from Illustrated Identity on Etsy.)
This is my version of “Meet the Artist”. I don’t share a lot of personal stuff on social media, but this is a way to get to know a little bit more about me. As you can see I love tea (drink it all day, everyday), books, plants, thrift store shopping, making lists and plans, using my favourite art supplies, patchouli perfume and I drink rosé wine even in winter. I don’t like phone calls (I never answer because I panic!) and I hate it when I accidentally mistake my paint-water for my tea…..yuck!
Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
What a special year 2013 has been for me. After a not so great start, things started to fall together in unexpected and great ways as the year went on. And throughout the whole year I’ve received so much love and appreciation about my work, from people all over the world. So a big THANK YOU for all the liking, following, commenting and sharing, I really appreciate it very much!
Here are some of my favourite things of 2013. See you all in 2014!

Here’s an illustration I made for Harlequin Books, for the US/Canada launch of Sarah Morgan‘s new book “Sleigh bells in the snow”. It’s a collage of Sarah’s favorite things for the winter holiday season, and it makes me look forward to lots of snow!
