In the Sketchbook


After university I took a very long break from drawing and sketching and I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do if I really want to take my illustration business seriously. And the more I'm researching other illustrators, the more I get inspired to draw and create and try new things. 

Looking at these pictures I realise that it seems like I'm going through some sort of depression but I'm really not. Since I don't have models posing for me, I use magazines and fashion catalogues for inspiration. Isn't it crazy how almost of the models in magazines look miserable? Wouldn't it be way nicer to promote happiness and have them smile and laugh?


I've 'cleaned up' and posted some of these sketches on my illustration tumblr. Come and join me over there

  1. These are lovely doll, I like the first one the most!! I think it's a great thing to be able to sketch at all, I am not very good, unless I really concentrate. But, it's always fun to see your creations. I hope you are having a great week so far!! xx
