To put pen to paper

Here you can see my experiment with different materials, in my last post I showed you all a process picture so I thought I would be nice and show you how it turned out. I have also let a few quick sketches slip out from my mind.

I have also started with the first illustration to my childrens’ book, and for now I will let it rest and keep on going and then perhaps go back to it : ) and below you can see a part of a bigger piece.

So this is just a part of a larger picture. Today I was supposed to paint all day long, but I kind of put large pressure on myself and then it I can’t do anything, I want it to be good right away and then I just don’t put pen to paper, because if I don’t then it can’t get wrong. And yes, it all sounds very silly, so I better get to it now!  ^__^

In the process a day of rest

This is a few days old process picture.

Today I had big plans, but I hit the wall and ended up curled up to a ball in bed watching films, but I suppose those days are okey when you rarely have them.

My week will be all about illustrations….so jump into it tomorrow again!

The experiments continue, I think I’ll do two more or perhaps 3…in different materials…and then I need to continue with the actual storyline, my boyfriend helped me a great lot today over coffee ❤

 

It feels kind of good so far, have a nice week end ^___^

What happened to the painting?

Blog, Creativity

Well one thing led to another and we ended up at a couples’ dinner and then the weekend just came crushing down and there was no such thing as painting….

So instead of the painting I’ll show you one of my material experiments I did yesterday connected to my project.

I have decided to make a childrens book.

This is part of a free project at the university to deepen my artistic skills, so this will happen through research and experiments with materials and so on and so forth. To be abe to focus I will not be posting much about this : ) though in time I will show you the result!

But I am doing stuff all the time so the blog will not go resting in a corner, for example, today I am painting with my boyfriend, update tomorrow afternoon. Have a nice weekend ^____^

Waiting for the dark

Blog, Creativity, Scribbles

Tomorrow is the day of the presentation of my collection.

I have been exhausted since I got back from the university in the north and took some time to just chill out : )

After tomorrow I will put together the final final stuff for the world to see but until then a “few” progress photos and some ideas.

Sure enough the two last pictures look well in context…but that is not how I will be presenting my stuff. ~Imagine a story in the middle of the night. in the grass, flowers and leafs something is moving, smoke is forming like fog. Out of the greenery comes creatures hiding in the dark. ~ Ye, somehting like that, that is how I will present my collection ^^ And ye, it sounds kind of fluffy but this will be great, I hope. But to do this I need darkness…. so waiting for the sun to actually set and for the night to come.

And offcourse I had to go burn myself on the iron when setting the colour to the fabric -____-

That was freakin’ over a week ago and I still have crust left…. if I say it is a battlescar and I won it will sound awesome, lets stick with that story : D

Time to take a few photos and cross my fingers they turn out good!
