Finding Joy In The Little Things, In Drawings.
Just a cute little drawing of a few small things that make me happy. I could just have easily gone for “Big things that make me very sad and worried” at the moment, but I chose not to do that. Have a good and safe day! 💚

September so far: sunshine, some orange in my Dutch wardrobe, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra on repeat and finally reading The Catcher in the Rye.

I made this illustration for the launch of Oh! You Pretty Things Magazine. I was asked by the magazine’s editor in chief (and über-stylish fashion photographer) Youna Baupoux to illustrate my idea of typical Scandinavian style. Just click here to read the oh-so pretty magazine!
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.
Finally a few sunny days and even the first pick nicks of 2016! Also very happy with my new Marc Johns book.
Wearing: t-shirt, Alternative Apparel – bracelet, A la – small purse, Solmode – cap & jeans, H&M – sandals, Birkenstock – straw bag, vintage.
Book: The Daily Artist by Marc Johns.
Yes! The sunny part of spring has finally started in my city and I’ll be off to the park soon. But these have been my spring favorites for the more wintry part of the Dutch spring.
Wearing: boyfriend blazer, Newyorker – dress and tights, H&M – bracelet, Ala – bag, vintage – berry liptint, Maybelline – nail polish, Catrice – shoes, Carmens.
I’m longing for summer and this is what I want to be wearing to a lovely picnic in the park. But, no such luck with the Dutch spring. It’s more wool sweaters, extra socks and staying inside to escape the rain, wind and even snow! Luckily, I can always draw a sunny scene!
This is my plan for Valentine’s Day 2016. Not much change from last year 😉 Anyway, happy Valentine’s day everyone!
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!
