New milestone: My first workshop for Imagine FX

Back while I was working at my first job in the industry, I travelled about 3 hours by train every day. Early mornings and late nights. During that time when I was just starting out, and to be honest not quite ready or even good enough for a descent job. I sucked actually. Things were rough. I was such a cliché – that skinny self-starving…

Life update

Hey y’allll! Sorry about the absence. Don’t have any unique excuses other than life’s ups and downs, and that there’s way too few hours in a day. Seriously, where does all the time go? Busy days I’m currently juggling everyday life, a fulltime job at King, freelance gigs and personal growth, and my addiction to Pokemon Go. To top it off I’m also trying to shift…

Sunday recap No. 5 & 6: Kingfomarket, BBCON and Schoolism

Phew. Maybe you noticed that I never made a recap last week. Sorry about that! A lot of things were happening, and my job and other things demanded most of my attention so I had to make some sacrifices. But now I’m back, and hah, at least I haven’t been bored during these two weeks. I’m pumped with inspiration and new ideas, although I’m mentally…

Sunday recap No. 4

Oh, wow this week has flown by. Not much has really happened, been mostly living my dull, monotone and introverted life almost all week. I’m loving it though, haha(Sometimes I feel like I’m a 100 ear old trapped in a young persons body). Painting has gone a bit slow though.. I know I’ve been creating(just barely remember what I’ve been doing?), but things kept turning…

Sunday recap No. 3 and a weekly unseen sketch

This week has been awesome. Short week at work, due to holidays on Thursday, so I took a shorter vacation. Spent it on the countryside to hang out and watch the pets. Boyfriends mom and hubby was out of town, so we got to help out while they were gone ◠◡◠  And the weather! Ghah, the weather… Spring (or summer?) is officially here in Sweden…

Try to put your eraser aside to improve your sketches

I rarely use an eraser nowadays when sketching and drawing. I currently  have two: a kneaded eraser that I use to lighten up bold pencil strokes after inking, and the other one is a tiny eraser on my favorite mechanical pen, which I never really erase with. It wasn’t intentional to stop using erasers a couple of years ago, it just kinda happened. Due to laziness…

Things happening in May

Ah, today is Valborg. It’s a tradition, where we kinda.. Scare away winter with some big ass fires(Fingers crossed that no hedgehogs got harmed!! They like hiding in the big pile of twigs… ) to welcome spring. May is probably my favorite month of the year. I like all seasons, but spring is special. I get all hyped and stuff. Here are some things happening for me…

Working on a Cintiq: Pros and cons

To get, or not to get a Cintiq? I get this question quite often ◠◡◠ It may be a big step for the hobbyist, but a nice investment for a professional artist. I recently got this question: What do you think about the differences between using a Cintiq and not using this tool? I’m an illustrator and I have some difficulties illustrating some of my works…
