New speed painting based on my photos

I’m still living in that magical wonderland from last week in the snowy woods.  Who knew that a little frost, sunshine and minus degrees could do so much good. Been looking at the photos I took and long to go back. Hope we can have snow at least one more time before spring arrives. It’s all melted away already. I remember walking past a section…

Looking for inspiration during the coldest day of the year

Last Sunday was magical. I was predicting pretty cold weather, and have been eagerly checking my weather app over and over again so that I won’t miss the best opportunity for a field trip. And I hit the jackpot, baby. The air was crisp, the sun was shining and Stockholm looked like a winter postcard. Insanely Beautiful! This was exactly what I’ve been waiting for, as I…

My first finished watercolor painting since forever

At last. Had to fail over and over again, but here we are – 5-6 attempts later. I like it enought to call it done. Feels awesome! :D Been grinding for weeks now, “wasting” several sheets of expensive paper. But hey, one needs to make sacrifices in order to improve, right? I’m known for starting over rather than trying to fix a painting that dowsn’t work…

Did I finish drawing all the 100 cats?

Nice and calm day yesterday. I’ve spent so much time in the kitchen, surrounded by wet paint, brushes and paper. Gosh, been such a long time since I experienced this. Having the table covered in art supplies. Amazing. I’ve just prepared a new watercolor painting. First I created a quick digital painting, the one here above, to use as reference for my traditional piece. Sketched it…

The 2018 goals, this time I’m gonna keep them

You know I mentioned earlier that I never really accomplished my previous goals for the year? I kinda forgot about them. Then life happened, and so on. Didn’t estimate properly, realizing how much time everything takes, especially if one has to juggle work on top of everything. Artistic chaos. Oh well. New year, new me. Right? I’m currently sitting at the kitchen table, zipping my…

Christmas coziness and Procreate love

Happy Holidays! Hope you had a nice and cozy Christmas. Spending quality time with your loved ones, and bingeing yummy food until you pass out, all warm and fuzzy. I’m slowly coming back to reality. Feels like I’ve been hibernating, and despite a cold from hell, things have been just perfect. I’m currently finishing the last bits of christmas snacks and beverage. Slacker style. A…

Had a workshop at Futuregames

Painted this little fox during a lecture earlier in November. Feels so awesome. Had this presentation and painting demo at Futuregames here in Stockholm a few weeks ago. It’s a school that focuses 2D, 3D and Game Design. If you remember my goals for 2017, you may have remembered that I wanted to get better at public speaking. So when I got this offer, the…
