Creative Mornings Utrecht

Those of you that are living abroad, will probably already have heard of Creative Mornings, a concept that was put out there by the ever inventive SwissMiss, Tina Roth Eisenberg:


Creative Mornings is a global breakfast lecture series for creative types. Each monthly event is free of charge and includes a 20 minute talk, plus coffee!”


Finally they came to the Netherlands and, very happily ever after for me, they landed in Utrecht! Among other designers they asked me to deliver some (breakfast themed) designs for little magnets to fill their goody bags with. As I am all for free sharing, I was happy to oblige.


Below the designs I made for them.

My personal favorite was chosen: can you guess which one?

Delicious Dudes Quartets – Week two: Oliver Jeffers

Yay! It’s already the second week of the Delicious Dudes Quartets! My head’s spinning by now, watching all these lovely men arriving on my twitter timeline! ;)

We’ve even got other illustrators joining us in the fun!


After some practice drawing Luke Wilson, this week I went all out on my biggest moustache infatuation ever: Oliver Jeffers.

I have got a HUGE crush on Mr Oliver ever since I saw this interview on Kitty Kilian‘s blog (red moustache alert!)…

About this series:

Together with BeckaKatrionaMarloesYinaTinekeMiriamMinkeNancyIna and, last but not least, Nelleke, I entered a fun project on Twitter, hashtagged #DD #quartets.

The goal of the game is to collect as many quartets (a quartet is a set of four cards) as possible. Each card indicates to what set it belongs.
All the illustrators have a different theme. My theme is “Movember Moustaches”. Each illustrator will post an illustration a week. By the end of the month each set is complete.
With the other sets you can play the game!

We will be posting Delicious Dudes every Friday in November.
