The flowerkid

I'm being very busy on the boring side of graphic design... But sometimes you have to do it so you can come back to the funny and bright side of illustration! Well, before starting this morning I had just enough time to create this little flowerkid, I would like to do more designs of that kind: plants with faces... (in stronger colours though, this one is a little pale) I think they're cute.

Enjoy the weekend!

Lucky me!

...who came back home at noon to find a package in my mailbox... from South Africa! My beautiful Orla teatowel has arrived today! In the package there was also a little surprise from Heather: a very sweet note with a velvet heart sticker in it... and a supercute badge I didn't even notice at first (shame on me!), that's why there's no picture of it... but I promise I will take a nice one and show it to you!
Thank you so much Heather! 
You can see Heather Moore's amazing work on her Skinny Laminx blog and buy her gorgeous teatowels, cushions, bags, magnets and more at her Etsy shop!

This morning I wanted start with a flower pattern, after several trials and nothing good coming out I took a break and when I came back... tada! In the mood for seaside I was!... and this is what came out! Fishes and starfishes with funny faces... Matching patterns are on their way, I just need to sleep a little bit!

It will include a lot of flower patterns, animals and probably human characters or dolls... The show is in April so there's still time but a lot of work too...! I'll post upcoming pattern so you can see how the collection grows...! enjoy! :)

A prince for the princess!

She was feeling a bit lonely so I found her a friend! :) I am working with both of them for wall stickers...

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Thank you...!

Thank you Illustration Friday for choosing me as the pick of the week! :) I had never participated before and loved the experience! It's so much fun seeing all the different interpretations that can be made of a same theme!...

I couldn't resist...

...making patterns of my "celebrate" illustration... and I think they turned out fine and cute! :) 

I had an appointment this morning at a parisian atelier, it turns out I will do a pattern collection for them. They sell the patterns freelance designers give them in different parts of the world as agents besides having their own designs! Of course I will post glimpses of the collection I will draw for them on my blog! In fact, these patterns and the IF illustration might be the first design of the collection...

illustration friday: celebrate

I once heard that each year in Sweden they have a party to celebrate the beginning of summer... This tree is meant to be a "beginning of spring-tree" and all its inhabitants are celebrating the end of winter and beginning of spring... :) 
Shouldn't we all have parties to celebrate the seasons...?

Is it finally going to be spring...?? Yesterday the weather was almost perfect here! Beautiful sunshine and clear blue sky but it was way to cold! I can hardly wait for the good, warm weather and the leaves, buds and flower to be back on the trees... So here is to an early spring pattern!

Soon to come... designs will soon be available as adhesive wallpapers, posters, stickers on

Just a glimpse on a new pattern range I definitely want to work on... Inspired of real roses, drawn by hand, scanned and redrawn on illustrator.

The princess dream... main pattern

Somehow I couldn't upload more than 5 pictures in the previous post, so here is the main pattern to my princess dream. :)

The princess dream...

Ok, I haven't posted in a few days, i know... but it's only because I worked hard on a new range of  designs for you! :) A little story to that one: the other day my boyfriend told me i loked like a princess in his bed when he left for work in the early morning... so I went on sleeping dreaming about how funny and nice and comfy it would be to be a princess for one day... enjoy the princess dream! :)
