A few new things

A new case for my watercolors, the old one was getting too small. The first issue of Solo, the awesome zine by illustrator Lizzy Stewart. Salmon colored washi tape. Another film camera, the super compact Olympus MJU II, which is perfect to carry around in my small-ish bag. And a bow shaped hairpin.

I'm also knitting a custom designed sweater for a friend, you can see the swatch I knit here. But I still have to choose the fair-isle motives for the yoke.

And last, here'a a sneak peek of the new book cover I've been working on. Stay tuned to the blog because soon I'll be making a post with my watercolor illustration process. It's something I've been wanting to do for ages!


  1. Have you checked the Solo website? It's lovely, I think you would like Lizzy's work :)

  2. Hi Julia!
    How are you? We haven't write to each other quite a while... thanks for leaving your comment on my blog (btw, I don/t know if you saw but you can participate and send me your photo of my work (if you still have it or if you have it on display) in it's new surrounding) till monday. :)

    I love love love Lizzy's work too but I unfortunately missed her Solo vol. 1 but I can't wait to receive Vol. 2 in my mailbox! :)
    Have a lovely weekend, hugs*

  3. I can't believe U can knit so well:)
    my mom bought me watercolors.. but I,m a little afraid of trying them!

  4. Hi Ana!! Yes, I was lucky and ordered the second volume as well. I still have your cute rainy cloud but it's not currently on display on my studio, since I rotate the artwork on my walls a lot. But I'll see what I can do :)

    Ada, knitting it's a matter of practice, and I really enjoy it. And don't be scared of watercolors, you don't have anything to loose if you try.

  5. Eeeee! Lucky friend to get such an aaaammmmaaazing sweater! ;D

  6. hehehe, well, I hope so!!! I'm a bit nervous about the fit, but hopefully it will be perfect for her. Have you seen these? http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/knitnetty/20959858/cimg3155_medium.jpg Perfect for you :D
