Weekly update – going slow


I feel like I am repeating myself every week over and over. So I apologize in advance. Life is busy as ever but I am happy to have finished the prompt Sounds for the #springawakeningmonth event on instagram. This time, I illustrated Dickon from the Novel „the secret garden“ from Francis H. Burnett. This is my third illustration for this novel and I really enjoy making them. It is time consuming but it is somehow also very relaxing. I painted with Acryl and colored pencils and this time I even added aquarelle. Overall I want to try and include more texture to my work because I really miss visible lines of pencils. So today I will be jumping into designing the last prompt and color throughout the week.

The Novel I am currently writing is slowly piecing everything together. Its a progress, so better than no progress. I haven’t written as much as I wanted to but the plot is mostly done. And this is also important.

Moorigan is sadly looking at me to get finished, and I will get back to it after #springawakeningmonth is complete. I can’t wait to work on her.

Other than that, nothing else much is happening in my life besides the craziness that is permanent when you have 2 small kids. 🙂

I wrap this up so I can get to designing the next prompt. Hugs to you all and thank you for sticking with me. 🙂
