Dark roses




I find myself being in a small "changing" period of my life. I can feel some of my old interest fading away and new waiting to step in.
I started working. I moved. I turned 25. My life has a different rhythm but I haven't started dancing to it yet.
I've gotten a smaller amount of free time and I'm still in the phase where I'm trying to figure out what it is that I want to do with it. Since I don't have the same amount of time to create my own things I want to understand if photographing or illustrating makes me most happy. I don't think I have to choose one, but sometimes I need to ask myself that question. One or the other always gets boring when I start to create for the people around me. Getting stuck on what I think my viewers want to see.
And I think I've done it with both... I need to get away from my path a little bit to clear my head. After all, I can't make copies of the same project my whole life :) I'm illustrating for the next years calendar in black and white but when the 12 illustrations are done I think I want to start creating more with color.
As for photography... and don't feel the desire to dress up as a princess anymore...haha, but I'm not sure yet what I feel a desire for. I still want that fairytale-like cosy feeling... but perhaps a bit more grown up.

The blog will still live, just in a slower pace :)

The Gardner



This illustration is dedicated to all you digging around in your garden during summer. Getting dirt behind your nails and being happy about it :) Well done!

As always, this print is up on Society6 as well.

Crochet & Mousegarded Cat




Remember I wrote that I was crocheting on the train? Well, the little fella above is what came out of it. It was a gift for the catowners (photo below) new baby girl Ofelia.
I found my inspiration from Camilla Engmans lovely crochets :)

Traveller


Print sold here.
Until sunday, get free shipping with THIS promo link :)

Mr Applenose had a large apple garden.
Every autumn he sold his apples on the yearly vegetable fairs. This year, alarmingly many apples were disappearing. Mr Applenose was unaware that the long-nosed bunnies were eating his apples every night.
Feeling a bit stressed out, Mr Applenose filled his acorn suitcases with his apples and travelled towards the nearest fair. (Not seeing the long-nosed bunnies sleeping just a few feet away from him, with their bellies filled with his delicious apples.)

The rabbit and his little house




I love when houses seem squeezed into place. This one isn't super-squeezed, but it's super-cute :)
Tiny with a few windows.... I especially like the tiny window on the roof over the door.

Oh the color


I live with Robert now and very close to our apartment are some gooorgeus gardens. It's like walking into a fairytale. Robert asked me why the whole city couldn't look like this. I really don't know.
