September floral wreath – downloadable colouring page #9
Finally I can see the end of the tunnel – a.k.a. autumn looming. So this means the colouring page for September is now here, in autumn colours. Ginkgo biloba is one of my favourite plants, I have painted it many times (for instance I am teaching it in my Skillshare class) – so it was […]
7 Harry Potter covers that will satisfy a graphic designer
As a Harry Potter fan and graphic artist, I’ve always found HP covers a little bit annoying. The first edition book covers somehow never managed to convey that magical – and towards the end of the series, pretty dark atmosphere that Rowling’s writing expressed.

July floral wreath – downloadable colouring page #7
