Last inktober I was able to make 17 ink illustrations, not more. Because I really liked my theme 'witchy vibes' I wanted to make at least 31 illustrations. And although the new inktober begins tomorrow I wanted to finish Inktober 2018 before tomorrow. So I made that happen :P. (It took me a whole year, but who cares). I liked drawing these illustrations and I learned from them, that's what really matters :).
A few weeks ago we went to Deutschland. We were in the Eiffel, what a beautiful place! Dense forests and untouched nature, absolutely stunning! I already suspected the place to be beautiful, so I took some jewelry designs and my camera with me.
I thought it would be fun to experiment a bit more with photographing my jewelry designs in natural surroundings. The forest was a perfect place for that experiment. I wanted to create a magical, mysterious atmosphere, with a slightly dark touch/lightning.
I am not a photographer, but I find photography and the creating of images and photo’s really interesting. Especially when I can manage to photograph in a style that identifies me and my company.Lees verder/continue reading
It has been a little bit quiet here. There is a reason for it; I moved! It has been a very busy time. We had to pack everything, had to sell out old house, needed to work on the new one. We changed the kitchen, the toilet and everything needed paint 😊.Lees verder/continue reading
This was for me the third year I participated the Inktober challenge. In this blog I look back on the month October and Inktober.
Inktober; 31 illustration with ink, every day one illustration. that's the idea. A huge chance to practice your drawing skills, that's for sure. it's also very heavy, it takes a lot of your time, but I decided to participate again anyway.
I have some new stuff to show you guys. At the moment I am working on some new fantasy products and I thought I give you guys a little sneakpeak
Summer is over and Halloween is coming (hurray). As promised I will show you guys more ‘behind the scenes stuff’. I made a vlog about the month August. It feels kind of weird to talk to a camera, but I also enjoy it to show you guys more about my life and work :).Lees verder/continue reading

I saw more and more people use the #marchmeetthemaker hashtag on Instagram. I didn’t know what it was, so I googled it… March-Meet-The-Maker is a challenge for small business to show some ‘behind the scene’ pictures. Who are they, what do they make, why do they do it, etc. A nice opportunity to show a little bit more of yourself and your brand identity.
I was a little bit late when I discovered this challenge, but I just really wanted to join! This challenge is quite new, 2016 was the first year of this challenge. The founder of this challenge is Joanne Hawker (insta: @joannehawker).
