Testing out my new ink. I am very disappointed by the quality, this is a Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Ink. The reason I am disappointed is because when it is dilluted with water it doesn’t leave any shade. Let me demostrate, see here the flower detail is painted by ink with lots of water. One can clearly see the purple shade when the ink is lighted. In fact, there was a shade of ochra too, brownish, lilac etc.

Parker INK


I need to buy some more Parker Ink I used to have, but I can’t find it anywhere. The search continues…

Meanwhile, here are some illustrations I made:

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! :)

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!
