After-School Cool




It's back to school time already, and here's my latest work for American Girl magazine, such a fun spread! You can see the illustrations bigger and better at my website.

Selfportrait with cat

As some of you might have noticed, I just gave this blog and my website/facebook/tumblr a makeover. I designed a fun new header and background pattern, and I also made a new "selfie" of me and my kitty Maggie. Hope you enjoy the new design!

PS. If you notice anything working weird, I'd love to hear from you!

Something fishy

A couple days ago I posted this photo on Instagram, and here's the final sketch! While I have used both gouache and watercolor a lot, I had never tried mixing both before, and I love the result. Best of both worlds. Also, adding an outline gives me more freedom while painting, because it wraps everything together and lets me embrace imperfections. I see more of this in the future :)

Island Life stickers

A few months ago, I illustrated all these sea critters for a fun sticker set, Island Life, published by Peaceable Kingdom.

I hope you're having a fun summer!

Good Vibrations

Summer is almost here. I'm going on a short vacation today, and the Beach Boys are already playing, they always put me in such a great mood. See you soon!!

Sweet tooth

I finished the book I was working on the other day, yay!! I'm super excited with how it turned out and I can't wait to see it on print, though we'll have to wait almost a year for that. Meanwhile, here's a couple of illustrations that weren't used in the end, but I liked them too much not to share. It's always so much fun to illustrate food :D
