Illustration Friday - Sink

This weeks if topic was sink. I found it a really difficult one, but made the drawing above.
As you can see, the sun is sinking in a wild sea and a little boat is almost sinking!
I'm pretty happy I'm not on that boat, I get very easily seasick, but I like the sea.
Do you like the sea and boats?

Girl with bows

Christmas is getting closer and closer.. I'm really counting the days.
(or actually the nights - 6 nights till christmas!)
I made the girl above last week, I think she looks like a old christmas movie girl with her bows and curly hair.
What do you do with chrismas?
I spend most of it with family :)

Illustration friday - separated

The illustration friday topic is a little sad this time..
This girl got separated from her stuffed rabbit :( (I think her big brother took him!)

Hatless Elsie

I've been busy making Elsie look more like how I think she should look..
And now she lost her hat!
I'm not sure she's all done yet, but at least she's looking more like she should..
I think she looks better like this, what do you think?

Monday, December 12, 2011


This weekend I made Elsie, I really like her..
She suddenly appeared on my paper and it feels like I've always known her..

But I'm not sure I really like the digital Elsie..She just doesn't seem right.
So I'll be busy with making her look like I think she should..
I have a whole story about her in my head.
Who do you think Elsie should look like.. ?
Maybe green and purple are more her colours..

I've moved

Maybe you didn't noticed anything at all, but I haven't been uploading as much as normal..
I was pretty busy the last couple of weeks with moving..
But i'm all set now and I'll post not 1 but actually 2 freebies this week..
So stay tuned! :)

ps. Do you know Kittypinkstar? She's awesome, you can find her site here.

Summer city girl

I made this drawing last night.
I totally love the winter, but somehow I really missed the summer.
I like to think she's a city girl sitting in a park in the summer :)

This is the season to be..

I'm really busy making a whole christmas freebie set for all of you! :)
And I'm moving this weekend, so packing stuff has also kept me from posting on the blog this weekend.
I made the little fast drawing above to make it up and to get you in the christmas mood.

Illustration Friday - Vanity

This week the Illustration Friday topic is Vanity and the drawing above is my submission.

When I think about vanity I immediately think about.. Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all?.. (The story of Snow White!)
I hope you recognize the evil queen and of course Snow White her self in the mirror.

I made this little native american girl shown above.
I also made Emma & Cat stamps, I'll show you soon!

Illustration Friday

Have you ever heard of Illustration Friday?
It's a website where you can submit drawings that are about a special subject.
This week the subject was silent and I made the doodle above..


Who is your favorite Harry Potter character?

Christmas Emma & Cat

Christmas is coming closer!
I love christmas.. here in the Netherlands we also celebrate Sinterklaas.
Sinterklaas is a little bit like christmas, we get presents!
Sinterklaas is a man with a white beard and red clothes, but he wears pope-dress-like-clothes, not even kidding haha.
So december is a month full of celebrations.
And to celebrate such a happy month, I'm busy with Emma & Cat extra's.
The drawing above is a sneak peak!


When I was little my favorite movie was Pocahontas (the Disney version)
At one point I even wanted to be Pocahontas..
I'm not sure if I really like the drawing I made of Pocahontas, I might make another one that looks more like the Disney Pocahontas.
Something like the Grumpy drawing maybe, what do you think?

Digital drawing

Hey guys,

You probably noticed that I didn't put a digital drawing on the blog for a while..
I have been busy with custom drawings en normal drawings on paper with promarkers (Emma&Cat drawings).
But this weekend I really wanted to make a new digital one, so here it is!
I'm totally hooked again and making a Pocahontas drawing next.
Did you have a nice weekend?

Emma & cat 2

I already showed you Emma & Cat some time ago.
And since then i made a lot of new Emma & Cat drawings (and stickers and mini zines)
But also a few other characters, I'll introduce them soon.
I've been drawing with promarkers and I'm totally hooked, I just can't stop!
Above is a little Emma & Cat christmas drawing I'm working on.
It's not done yet and I'm making a whole set.
I'm thinking of starting a etsy shop and selling some Emma & Cat stuff.
Would you like that?

love xo

Emma & Cat

And I really like these two, I call them Emma & Cat, although I may rename the cat.
I'm busy making a little storybook with them :)
Thought you may like a little peek..Hope you like them!

Indian Girl


I've been a little sick, it was suddenly so warm over here..
And I didn't handle it to well.
But I did make a new character, a little indian girl!
I really like her (did you know I wanted to be Pocahontas when I grew up?)
She deserves a story I think, so I'm going to make one for her.
She's ready for a nice little adventure, with I think a cute little rabit :)
The only thing still missing, is her name...

This summer I went to Paris..
And I had a wonderful time and ate some macroons (even Ice macroons) :)
The weather is so nice this weekend and it got me thinking about macroons :)
So here's a drawing I made today!

Love Love Love!

Yesterday was my day off :)
And the weather was so amazing, blue skies with a lot of sunshine!
I just wanted a lazy day, so I didn't do much...
But I did some little drawings in my sketchbook. (above)
Lately I made a lot of drawings that look something like the girls above.
I'm going to scan them and make something in illustrator and photoshop with those. :)
I'll show you when it's finished!

Monki Business

There is a new store here in Rotterdam, I don't know if you know it..
But it's Monki!
Monki is a Scandinavian brand/store, it's something like H&M but with more of a funky street style.
They sale clothes, bags, shoes and all kinds of other a accessories. 
I bought the stuff above (sorry for the crappy telephone photo!) at Monki yesterday, a cute little pink bag and a neckless with a silver pencil.
And on the pencil is bright young thing engraved, which I really like. :)

You should go to a Monki store near you! (if there is one..) But you can also take a look at the website:

Love xx

I love Diglee

When I was in Paris this summer I found a adorable agenda/calendar/diary whatever you want to call it.

And then I found this awesome book!

Both made by Diglee. I love her, I like her drawings and what happens in her little stories. I can find myself in her drawings and everything she does. She also has a website/blog you absolutely have to go to.
I don't understand everything in the book or at the website, because my french is not that good.
But I'm totally inspired
So what are you waiting for.. go!

xo : )
