• Let’s make a zine – a therapeutic evening

    There is something liberating about creating something that has no purpose whatsoever. It was with this thought in mind that I made my own little zine a couple of weeks ago. So what is a zine? To put it very simply, a zine is a unique or small circulation book/magazine. It is usually self published and […]

  • The times when I’m not creative…

    The most frequent answer to the question “How to be an illustrator?” is: practice every day – and you can believe me, I have typed this question into Google gazillion times. But what happens when you just can’t? The past couple of weeks have been rather difficult for me due to some personal changes in […]

  • Behind the scenes #6 – The power of painting small

    Those few who have seen my illustrations in real life know that most of them are A5-A6 size images. This habit of painting small is not based on an academically supported decision, but on an observation of the mere fact: it is simply good to paint watercolours in small size.

  • Browse your inner Pinterest! – take steps to be more creative

    ’I wish I were as creative as you’. I often hear this remark from friends but the truth is that only a part of our creativity comes from our genes, another large part can be learned.

  • Let’s talk fonts!

    The moment you find yourself guessing typefaces on posters and ads, you should consider the possibility that you have a fetish for typography.

  • A few words about copying…

    Copying is kind of a taboo topic among Artists. In posh circles it is common to say that those who copy actually steal, cheat, and use the wrong way to develop their skills. It is therefore lucky, that I don’t call myself an Artist with a capital ‘A’, nor do I belong to posh circles, […]

  • Design guide for the non-creative

    Sometimes I feel that the visual world – whether it be a blog, a photo, a graphic or an illustration – has split in two. One half creates clearer and more beautiful work by the minute (even with occasional highs and lows), the other half takes worse and worse steps making me scream “WHY???” Of […]

  • 16 creative lessons from 2016

  • Draw your own calendar in 2017! (with downloadable template)

    I must admit I was a little sad when I posted the last downloadable wallpaper calendar on the blog. I liked to do them and you guys liked them too, but next year will bring change and I will not continue with this series. However, just because I don’t create a new calendar, there is […]

  • 5 DIY Christmas presents that are actually not rubbish

    There’s a slight odour hanging around the notion of DIY presents. Those who have already given some (and have an inner critique) will know that the result is often a little crappy, a little useless, looks a bit awkward, but it was done by our own little hands, therefore it is priceless, and anyone who […]
