I drew & painted my outside window with a fine-liner pen!

Quite a while ago, I developed a strategy – which is almost definitely not my original idea – where I get a fine-liner pen, do a drawing with it, then paint it with watercolours. Before I started using watercolours, I used to paint with acrylics. Nowadays, I hardly ever use acrylics – I do like…

Some EXTREME graphic design trial & error!

So I was wondering what graphic design to do, when I decided to invent an imaginary place and make a leaflet of an imaginary Indian restaurant in the imaginary place!

How much have my drawings improved in 1 year?

If you have been following me for a while, you may remember that I did a drawing of my front garden in about the 23rd of February 2019. Since the beginning of 2020, I had the idea that I would – at some point – draw the same scene, 1 year apart. Here it is…
