  • A little tribute to @lisa_quine for #GoodtypeTuesday, cause I've been admiring her intricate works and her awesome murals ❤ I'm not in US, so not aiming for the prize that @goodtype prepare for the challenge this time. Go take a look at Goodtype's page to learn more. It's a super awesome one 😎

  • #SundaySketching #6 "Let the plant live" 🙈 I love seeing people's houses with healthy plants. Unfortunately, I don't have green thumbs. Not too passionate about taking care of any house plant, probably. But I can draw them 😆 Thinking to have paper plants all over my room, instead of the living one.
.
.
How about you? How do you treat your plants? 😄

.
About Sunday Sketching: I'm showing one minute video every Sunday, since the start of 2019, of me sketching a word, or thumbnails of a quote, or simple illustration that I'd love to learn. I'm not aiming for specific styles as it is about learning. Moreover, I'd like to show more raw materials than just only finished piece.

  • Swedish Postcard 23/30: "Kärlek". It is a Swedish word for "Love".
.
.
To be honest, I don't remember if I ever celebrate Valentine Day. Never had a meaningful relationship with a special someone. However, Love is not always to be celebrated with the significant other, right? It can be love to a family, to friends, to the job that you enjoy, to a special place. Now, I'm taking the last two. So, this year I celebrate my love to Sweden and my love to lettering with this Swedish postcard. Moreover, another brighter side of Valentine for me is, I will definitely celebrate the discounted chocolate day 😂
.
.
I really love this postcard that I will work on its colorful digital version later 😍 Would anyone be interested to have one? 😉
.
.
About Swedish Postcard: I started making postcards about Sweden in October 2018. It is based on my experience and stories of when I lived in Sweden back in 2013-2015. It is supposed to be daily challenge for the Inktober 2018, but I couldn't finished all 31 cards in 31 straight days. I continue to create the postcards anyway as my passion project. This year, I changed my plan to finish (at least) 30 cards in total. I also changed the "Inktober" count up caption to "Swedish Postcard" instead, because that is exactly what it is 😉

  • This month I will focus on the opening for my Etsy shop. Currently I'm still preparing the designs. The process that takes long is the color choosing. Even though I have a set of pallette that I will use for this launch, doesn't make it easier to come up with the right combination. I finally satisfied with this one after two weeks of altering it 😅
.
.
I will have this printed as 5x7 cards and A4 prints. Hopefully I can have them ready in my Etsy shop by the end of this month. 😊
.
.
If you are interested to have the black and white version, it is available in my TeePublic store. The link is in my profile 💕

  • #SundaySketching #5 "Stuck".
.
.
Because I'm a bit stuck finding a word to sketch today, so why not just draw it 💃
.
.
What do you do when you are stuck? Are you the kind of people who willing to ask for help? Are you the kind who would just finding the solution on your own? I'm mostly the latter, I think 🐙

  • Hello February! My goals this month are to launch my Etsy shop and making more Swedish postcards! 😊 .
.
Actually, from the start of the year, I made a set of color palette inspired by scandinavian building colors. But since I rarely show digital finished piece, the color palette doesn't really exposed. However, you'll see them soon enough incorporated in my designs for my etsy shop.
.
.
Now, February, let's make stuffs happen!
