Summer is coming!

The weather out here has been amazing today. Can’t wait for more sunny days.

Please enjoy this beautifully illustrated video that I still can’t get enough of…

Life at the MA – Part I

Since September I have been flying back and forth between Utrecht and Cambridge to follow the MA course in Children’s Book Illustration. It’s about time I show some of the work I’ve been doing!

The first module was all about observational drawing.
Back to basics, baby.

This is the first out of four blogposts showing pages from my sketchbooks.
Part I: Getting back into line drawing again and trying out coloured pencils.

(P.S. The summer school that changed my life is back online again!)
