Beauty is everywhere




Rainbow from our window facing east.
Little red robin from our kitchen window facing west.
Sleeping Lollo, always to the south of where I'm sitting and working.

I'm actually working on my first official illustration assignment (from a company not a private person that is). It's fun. I wake up early and then I work until 5-ish. Sure it's from home but I feel like I'm doing something useful :) It's great. I hope the ad agency will consider hiring me for jobs again. One can only hope.
Tonight I'm meeting my boyfriend and girlfriend to eat tacos and watch the ballet documentary First Position. It shall be awesome.

Remember my yearly calendar? I'm not sure if I'll make one this year. What do you think?

  4. Hello Ulrike - I write from Vienna this week. Sounds like you are enjoying your project, keep up the good work, it doesn't matter where you work from. I love your illustrations and would consider buying a calendar. I am first wanting to purchase the rest of your horse pictures - I love them all.

  5. Definitely make one! I wanted to buy it last year, but didn't for some reason and regretted it a lot!. But I have thought all year about buying it for 2013!

    1. Hihi, du är så söt :) Men går det bra om jag bara gör den i liten storlek?
      Andrea förresten, jag har ju glömt svara på ditt mail!!! Som du skrev för typ hundra månader sedan, det är bara för du skickade till min skolmail så jag har glömt bort det helt! Jag som själv surar över folk som inte svarar på mail :P

  12. Maybe you've had this question asked before, but I was just wondering what camera do you use to take your pictures with?

    2. Too expensive now while I'm unemployed. But also it's a dance you should practice every day if you want to develop. One hour a week doesn't really get you dancing :(
