Custom Rat Onesie

A finished Custom Onesie for Hoggy, that I actually finished a while ago (but didn’t sort out photos until now :P). Very happy with this one, proud! This was a trade and she made a beautiful original fine art painting in return featuring my favorite animal, elephants ♥

I have been making onesie commissions since 2013 and I have grown and learn allot while making these. I love making and wearing these myself, they are super comfy. A huge thanks to all my supporters that made it possible for me to do so!

Some blog editing

Just a quick update! I’ve edited some of my blogs so it looks more interesting to scroll through my blog page. So if you get the feeling I use the same image in the banner as the picture in it, I did but it was inside the post before. I always had a paragraph of text and then a link to read more about the post with the pictures in there.

I think it will look more interesting with the pictures (not all of them) before the read more link, so it actually looks a bit more fun to scroll on this page instead of all tekst :3 Anyways at least I hope so :O If you have any suggestion for me to improve my blog, please do tell!

Random venting

Soo once again I find it hard to find time for blogging :O I mean I have enough to blog about, but I guess I still need to find the discipline to do it weekly.

A cute bunny appears!

Happy Easter everyone!

Remember I said I like to work with themes? Welll…here is another themed picture.

For this blogpost I am going to feature a wip art piece I made for a friend, that happens to be a super cute bunny! This is a new character designed by herself and after she showed it me I felt in love with it. Of course now that it’s Easter I had to draw her and here we are with the result! Well it’s not finished yet, but it will be soon ♥

I had a blast sketching her and it’s good to spend time arting ♥ I hope you like it and I wish you all an awesome extra-long weekend!

WIP Artwork

My job after 1 month!

Just a quick blog for this one!

A month has passed since I started my new job as a designer in marketing/merchandising! I am really enjoying it there and the things I make there. I’ve already done so many projects and some designs/ideas are already in production. What I enjoy the most is the variety the job is giving me, all tough sometimes it can be hard to switch between projects. Of course it also gives me a proper stability in my life both mentally as financially 😛 That sounds boring, but yeah like I said before I really need this now! I am happy with where I am now and that I can do my job and feel good about it.

So many Splatoon Hats! ♥

I’ve been making Splatoon Hats for the past 1,5 years.

Something that started out as my very first fleece hat turned out to be a huge success. I Just started to make these after playing the game Splatoon on the Wii U and I immediately became a fan of the game! 😀 Till this day I still love to play the game and will be looking forward to the sequel Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch!

In able to sell these hats which where custom/handmade by myself I had to open a shop. I started with a google form and advertised on Facebook and other sites. I didn’t expected to sell allot after my first prototype and was hoping for maybe a handful of orders. This quickly turned into 20 orders for my first batch. My mind was blown that so many people where interested in these and yes 20 was allot for me :P. Everything made me really excited to start sewing more of these hats.

I won’t give up!

I made a deal with myself, that I want to blog every week. I want to keep that promise, but it’s been really hard to make time for these. Especially with my new job, it’s becoming harder and harder to make time for other things. Nevertheless I am really happy with my job, but just a little bit sad that I have to schedule things differently and probably need to lower my goals for a bit.

One thing is for sure, I don’t easily give up on things!
For that reason I am going to cheat a little bit and make a few blog posts and catch up! Hopefully I will get used to my job soon and find a proper balance between my work, commissions and personally life/ goals.

I guess “plushies” will be next!? ♥

Remember that poll I did a few weeks ago!?

Well here are the results :3 This is going to be a quick post, because with the new job it’s become harder for me to make time for these :O (wasn’t quick at all :P)

So in my Poll I asked what do you like to see next time I open commissions? For example this could be art or custom hoodies! I’ve also added new things ♥ In the end I’ve gotten quite some feedback and I was very surprised by the result.

New job!

No update of the month in projects this time!

My adventure continues, where I found this pretty cool job (started March 7) where I can explore new things and gain more security. It is a part time time job, which means I can still continue my own work as a freelance illustrator and seamstress + have a breather. I will have more financial stability, hopefully less stress and will be out of the house more :O.

Of course this will turn my life upside down (but in a good way) and it will also limit my time I can spend on freelance projects, but at this moment this is what I need to take good care for myself, to be happy and to move forward in my life.

I am really happy I have found this opportunity and I can’t wait to see what experience I will get from this ^__^

Comic Con Europe!

The event for Comic Fans! Right!?

Okay to be honest this was my first time attending this event, but this was my impression about it. First of all, Harley Quinn’s everywhere! EVERYWHERE…I like cosplayers and all, heck I even cosplayed myself when I was younger. But really, when I start to see the same cosplay all over the place, it really disappoints me. I guess that’s just me, but hey I am not here to talk about them so lets continue :3

I really enjoyed the con itself, but purely just to lurk around and check some good oll loot! Also it’s just fun to spend this kind of time with my mate (& friends). We are real hoarders when it comes to this. I love to collect all kind of things like figurines, prints, art, games & comic books etc. So this was really a fun place to be if you are looking for those kind of things. But was it worth it?

Overwatch fan-art

Another art blog huh!? Yup, I’ve finished another art piece for one of my clients and here I am blogging about it ^_^

This time it’s in the theme of a game and like I said in my last blog, I love working with themes ♥ To be specific it’s featuring one of the characters from Overwatch, well at least her outfit is. She is quite the popular character in Overwatch (alltough I prefer playing with D.Va myself ♥) and as a fan of Overwatch myself I was more then happy to draw this for the client!

Happy Valentines Day!

Even tough we (me and my partner) don’t really celebrate this day (we are happily together for almost 9 years now!), I do like to make themed art when I can. I love to draw in themes like Valentine, Seasonal (spring, summer, fall, winter) & Halloween ♥ that last one is my favorite! But now it’s time for Valentine!

★ February projects ★

Time sure flies fast!

In the past month I have been pretty occupied with all kind of appointments and mostly sewing fleece hats and one hoodie. I was hoping to finish all my hoodie projects, but nope :O

I was also pretty distracted by a new (well upgraded) budget program, I like to tell more about later maybe. I’ve also updated my portfolio (still not done yet) and had another job opportunity (no news yet tough).

I like to stay positive tough, all I can do is my best! Sooo up to another month! ♥ As long as I keep moving forward and be productive every day, I will get there 🙂

Meet the Artist!

So for this week blog, I’ve decided to do a meet the artist thing. I made this drawing very recently featuring me and the things I (dis)like. It’s just something simple to show my followers who I am :3 Of course not everything is on here so I will tell a little bit more about myself here!

Survey time! Commissions ♥

I am currently debating with myself what I want to do next time I open commissions.

I have been getting tons of requests for onesies and opening dates for these, but I like to know what more can I offer? Since not everyone can afford an onesie or want one in the first place and I don’t want to disappoint the ones that want other stuff from me (e.g. art or smaller sewing projects).

Commissions vs Personal Projects

Looking back I’ve done allot of different type of commissions, from art to sewing projects! Now I’ve been closed for new commissions for quite some time and I am not planning to open anytime soon until most of my queue is done. But at the moment I am not sure yet what I want to do next (just want to prepare mentally & creatively), since there are so many things I have done I can do again or just start up new things!

Summary of art & sewing 2016

It’s time for a recap!

Every year I make a summary of my work I’ve done during that year. And every time I am so stressed and thought I barely made any progress. But then every time when I do make the summary of that year I am surprised about the amount of work I still did.

I love to do these recaps, I think it’s good for every person, artist or not to evaluate yourself every time. Sometimes you can be blinded by stress or different reasons and you feel you have wasted a complete year. Sure sometime (most of the times) I wished I had done more and feel I kept pushing projects forward. But it also makes me wonder if I don’t ask too much of myself?

★ January projects ★

Happy New Year!

A new year, a fresh start…kinda. I still have lots to do, projects to be finished and a portfolio to be filled! 2016 been a rough ride, I am always so super busy and distracted that time flies too fast. However I also feel truly blessed that I can make a living of my freelance work. I really appreciate all the support I am getting and that people are interested in buying my work ^_^

I have to keep remind and push myself to blog (yay for weekly banner). If not for sharing with other people, then for myself. It’s good to express myself and make a bit of breathing room in my mind (and to get better in writing)!
