Mother Illustration


Made an illustration for the Illustration Friday challenge. It’s also part of the same series about a little girl that I’ve been working on in a kind of on and off mode for the last year.

A Viking ship painting


My latest oil painting:


The ship’s design and proportions are based on real Viking ships found by archeologists.

This is a self-portrait I did today using pencil and watercolor. I’ve drawn self-portraits before, but never done it with watercolor. It’s really small, the paper is just slightly bigger than a postcard, so it was pretty easy, but  I like how it turned out.

Blueberry Meringue Pie recipe illustration


I made an illustration of my Mom’s Blueberry Meringue Pie recipe for They Draw And Cook website. For those who don’t know it, it’s a cool collection of recipes illustrated by artist from all around the world.

My Mom’s original recipe had black chokeberries in it, but we’ve made it with other berries such as black currants, cranberries and blueberries. The latter is my favorite, so the blueberry version is what I chose to illustrate.

I’ve done some food illustrations before, but never a complete recipe, and the process turned out to be really fun! So I’m pretty sure I will be doing more of these.

And here’s a photo of the actual pie I took before drawing it:



A girl has a sister


Another illustration for my “a girl” series. Now she has someone to watch the stars with.

Made a couple watercolor illustrations this week-end. I’ve sketched this same girl quite a few times already, and now moved on to painting her, so I guess it might grow into a series.




A dragon for Illustration Friday


This week’s topic on Illustration Friday is Dragon, so I just couldn’t resist and made this illustration:


another marker illustration


Made another drawing with my new markers:


Here’s how it looked before I added color to it. I kind of like both the colored and the black and white version.


Three marker drawings


I bought myself some art markers a while ago (a few Copics and some of a less expensive brand). I’ve never used these before, so I’ve been experimenting a lot with them lately. Here are some of my drawings:
