I just received my copy of the new issue of Flow magazine with my illustrations inside!
In the summer of 2015 I began to illustrate again after a long break. I had just become a mother for the first time and this gave me a lot of new inspiration. I began to draw again every evening and quickly found the style I work in now. I discovered my love for mixing different patterns and began to experiment with collage, ink and fineliners and my collection of personal work grew more and more.
I feel so happy to look through the work and process I’ve had in the last two years! To see your work bound together in a beautiful book is so much different than browsing through your illustrations on your computer. To have a physical object that I can look through and show to others, feels really special.
When I received the book (only one week after my order, shipped from the US to Europe!) I was so surprised with the high quality of the cover and the paper. I choose ProLine uncoated paper and the quality was even higher than I expected. The paper is thick, matte and a little textured, which makes it feel like high-end drawing paper. The ImageWrap cover feels really smooth and also has a beautiful matte finish. The colours of the prints are perfect, exactly the same as in the photos I uploaded. So it represents my illustrations beautifully!
My book is filled with everyday moments, from not knowing what to wear in the morning to setting the table for dinner. I’ve drawn especially a lot of women and scenes from motherhood the last two years and I can't wait to see what my next book of illustrations will look like, because I will definitely be making a book of personal works again next year!
