Miranda

I've almost finished my new book, only one spead left and I'll be heading to the Pyrenees for a much needed vacation. This book has been the most fun so far, but after two months working exclusively in the computer, I miss my gouache and brushes. I need to get my hands dirty again!

Meanwhile, this is a lady I had forgotten in my sketchbook, hope you like her!

Into the blue

Hi everyone, how have you been? I'm still very busy working on the new book. But in my little spare time I've managed to knit this new shetland sweater while I binge watched House of Cards and True Detective.

I saw this amazing vintage find in Kate Davies' blog, and I just felt like I needed one myself. I drew the chart based on the pictures and used my usual yoke sweater numbers to make my own version. I'm ridiculously happy with the outcome! Now I only need a little less spring-like weather so I can wear it.

Anyway, I'm already planning my next project. I need to have something on my needles for the new season of Game of Thrones and (sad face) the last season of mad Men.

Deer face

Hello!! I've been very busy lately, working on my new illustrated book, hence the lack of posts! I'm drawing non stop, but I can't show you anything... So, here's another woman I painted on my sketchbook, again from the Sartorialist. She had the longest neck and most expressive eyes, she reminded me of a deer :)

Gold pants

I sketched this couple with great coats from The Sartorialist (again!). This guy's pants were the perfect excuse to use the gold gouache.

Wave

Another drawing based on a photo from The Sartorialist. This woman had such a great face and hair, I couldn't resist painting her.

In other news, I just started working on a new illustrated book, yay! I see a couple of very busy months in my future :D

Jessa and Hannah

Because my obsession with drawing girls in coats continues. I was watching the show Girls the other day and I just had to paint Jessa and Hannah with their fabulous coats.

Girls with coats

Seems like I have a soft spot for girls with coats and hats from The Sartorialist :D

Have a great weekend everyone!

Pet obesity

I recently illustrated an article about pet obesity for January/February 2014 issue of Best Health magazine.
