A former colleague of mine has two beautiful daughters. He commissioned illustrations of them as Christmas presents.  Some flowers, glitter and shades of pink:

I have recently participated in the Snail Mail My Email project.

Drawing heart-warming letters, full of beautiful, sentimental, kind and thankful messages on behalf of caring and loving people turned out to be a great thing to do during the cold November evenings. Here are some samples of what I drew:

Letter 1:

Flower petals. There is a big blower jumping out from the girl’s bag! :)

coco bottle 2

Here are some perfume bottle illustrations I made. The size is 50 cm * 70 cm, so they are pretty large. What’s cool about them, is that these are made on wood panels. The parts where the liquid is supposed to be are not colored in or slightly tinted, so that one can see the wood pattern. It looks like liquid. I really like these, even if I say so myself. This technique turned out great!
