Half way with The Sketchbook project


40 pages in 40 days is a big challenge, but at the same time i see that ideas come very easily. I would like to choose some pages, which i like. My goal for next year is to make more paintings! In the end that's the most important thing.



Rose. Blue pencil on blue paper and white fineliner.

Time. Blue pencil and acrylic on paper.

Apple. Pencil and acrylic on paper
What can i say. There is so much girly kitch inside of me that has to come out.

Pearls. Pencil, blue pencil, little beads and acrylic on paper.

Prince. Acrylic, ballpoint, red ballpoint on paper.

I love these girls who make very lovely broches, illustrations and crafty things: http://laprincesita.bigcartel.com/products Check the donut! So cute it hurts.

Ponyhunter. Acrylic, pencil and fabric on paper.
This fashion girl has beautiful pictures. Used an image as example of her blog: http://lunasupernova.blogspot.com/

Jellyfish. Blue pencil, plastic, acrylic on paper.
I'm loving this one. Under water themes are always my favourite. Maybe because the water is everywhere around you and makes you weightless, isolated from the rest of the world...

New pages for the Sketchbook Project

Finally! I made some pictures of my sketchbook pages...
It was hard to pick a nice day to make some photo's of my book outside. (for the best light)
The weather is very very cold.
 It's snowing / raining in the Netherlands... and it's getting dark allready at 16:00!

Viktor & Rolf. Fineliner, white colorpencil, acrylics, ballpoint on texture paper.

Last year i went to an exhibition of Viktor & Rolf and i love their designs and the concepts they have. I think they are magicians with clothes. When i saw a photo of them with the hats i wanted to use it.

 Couch. blue ballpoint, acrylic, blue pencil on texture paper.
One day i want a couch like this.
~
 Little shell. (Blue) pencil on paper, natural paper in the background.  My friend is getting married next year and while we were checking out some dresses i saw a very nice one. Short on the front and big layers in the back.

 Queen. Pencil, acrylic, goldpaint, red ballpoint on paper.
I found an old queen playcard and i thought that it would be interesting to draw the queen figure again but then in another way.
~
 Snowby. White marker, ballpoint.
I wanted to give here white eyelashes but i don't have a small fineliner for that. I think it doesn't excist.
Looking for that for a long time. So i changed her eyes and now they are freaky blue.

Tulle. Acrylic, (blue) pencil on paper. 
Sometimes i find strange animals on the internet. Like this little kittycat. It looks like he smashed his head against the wall. Still: Really cute.

Kittycat. Pencil and fiber on paper.

Stamps. Pencil, acrylic and poscamarker.

~
 Mouth. color pencil, white fineliner on paper.
I made little details with a white fineliner and i just love to make this page.
~
 Bunny. White fineliner, posca marker, pencil on postnotes.
I try new things so i can use it later if i want to make paintings in 2011.
