We’re well into July already, which means I still owe you my June Photo Diary. So without further ado, let me show you what I’ve been up to this past month! More after the jump!
(Nederlands) Ik kan weer een ervaring van mijn illustratoren-bucketlist strepen: Op de radio komen! Vorige week bezocht ik samen met Radio EenVandaag verslaggever Mischa Blok de tentoonstelling van Fiep Westendorp in het Limburgs Museum. Klik door voor meer foto’s van de expositie en om het interview met mij terug te luisteren.
Can you believe it’s monday AGAIN?! Time really does fly, apparently. It’ll be time to start thinking about the design of this year’s Christmas card before I know it. It won’t be the first time that I’m up to my ears in ‘jingle bells’ while it’s about a hundred degrees outside. But first things first: this week is crammed with fun meetings and new projects, which I can’t tell you about yet of course. But when I can, I promise you’ll be the first to know. So let’s start the week in proper Monday fashion, with your weekly dose of inspiration.
A little while ago, I told you in one of my ‘5 things I’m doing right now’ posts that I was writing an editorial for the Dutch DIY Magazine ‘Maak Magazine’. And although I have been featured in magazines before, I never actually wrote an editorial for one, so this was really exciting! The editorial is about my love for fabric (and it’s in Dutch). There’s more after the jump!
Ladies and gentlemen, this is an official announcement: SUMMER’S HERE! We’ve all been waiting for it and now it’s finally that time of year again. Let’s just hope the weather is willing to cooperate (something you can’t really be sure of here in The Netherlands). My week is loaded with awesome projects and appointments, but I’ll sure be trying to squeeze in some free time outdoors. But first, let’s start the week off with some summery inspiration. What are you up to this week?
These past weeks, I’ve been working very hard on screenprinting some new giftwrap. I printed this giftwrap for the first time last year, for an exhibition at Graphic Arts Workshop ‘Raaf’ in Breda (The Netherlands). I sold it at several markets and I used it to wrap webshop-orders in. But since I almost ran out of this handprinted giftwrap, it was time to print some more. Today I’m sharing some photos of the process and the end-result. Click through for more!
For most of you it can’t be long before summer vacation starts. And although summer is often known as a period of time in which there’s not a lot to do for freelancers like me, it seems like I will be havind LOADS of cool projects on hand these coming months.
Don’t get me wrong; that’s not a problem. I’ll plan a vacation when I have time for it (one of the many up-sides of being self-employed), but it does mean that I might not be going on vacation this year. And there’s one person in particular that doesn’t like that idea at all: my paper llama.
And that’s why I need your help this summer. Wanna know why? Click through to find out!
Do you know the feeling when the week ahead is SO full that you feel like you’ve already lived through it five times before it has actually even started? Well, that’s what this week looks like for me. I’ve got LOADS planned for this week, including hosting a workshop in dry-needle etching, writing a guest-blogpost for one of Holland’s greatest blogs and I’lll be visting an exhibition with my Bestie. Not to mention it’s Father’s Day on Sunday. Speaking of which; here’s a little last-minute masculine inspiration to start your week off with. Enjoy!
As you may have read in last week’s Photo Diary, I’ve been working on desiging some new business cards for myself.I’ve been posting some work-in-progress updates on social media and I got the impression that you really liked seeing the process that was behind it. So I decided to share that process with you in full today! Click through for more!
