Oh, down the rabbit hole we go!

I finally got around to doing the photoshoot I had planned for ages. Me and Annu woke up at 5 am to catch the perfect morning light.. well of course.. we did not. So instead we took our bikes to Variku forest, dragging along 20 kilos worth of stuff - stuff we used to make the set, extra clothes, accessories, jewellery, blankets etc. and found ourselves in direct sunlight, in the middle of a field, with the temptemperature of 30 degrees celsius. Needless to say those were quite difficult conditions for a photoshoot. But it was a lot of fun. And I must say that Annu was such a brave little bunny because I can get kind of crazy when it comes to photographing someone, you can say I'm a perfectionist, so working with me is not always fun and games. The gorgeous tights that I based the whole theme of the photoshoot on, are from so be sure to check out their wonderful selection of tights, leggings etc. But do enjoy and let me know what you think! :)

(I used Canon EOS 400D, 50mm lens, tripod, Canon remote controller RC-1 and PhotoshopCS3 for the pictures)

I'm actually wearing this shirt backwards - the lace detail should be on the back, but I like it better this way. :)

But I can't help it now, looking for faces in the clouds.

I had a lovely weekend - I escaped the noise and the heat of the city and spent two days at a friend's country cottage. We swam and took the boat out, a real summer paradise.
Most of these pictures were taken at 6 AM in the morning, because it was too hot to sleep. But now it's back to work for me. And I wanted to thank all of you for the lovely feedback I got on my illustrations. :) But do enjoy!

Wanna sneak a peek?

A tiny sneak peek of what I've been up to these past few weeks. All these illustrations (and more) are going to be on sale at my Etsy store - hopefully I can also find a company that would sell pretty canvas bags (with a reasonable price) so that I could make my illustrations into bag designs. Since these pictures are quite big - even bigger than A3, then I was also thinking of having some limited edition prints (A3,A4,A5) available (signed and numbered). I mostly use 2B and 3B pencil, black ink, newspaper clippings,watercolors and thick cardboard paper. I added a little video as well - hope you enjoy!

And If you have any questions or suggestions - perhaps you have a special request, or an idea what you would like me to draw or whatnot then just let me know in the comments below.

( I used 2B,3B pencils, watercolors and newspaper clippings for the illustrations, Photoshop CS3 for the bag designs, CanonEOS 400D for the  pictures and Windows movie maker for video. )

i hear you talking but i don't see the need.

This heatwave is killing me! Gosh.
Anywhooo.. I took these pictures yesterday, when I was out with Annu. I'm wearing my selfmade floral skirt - you can find a tutorial on how to do it HERE. All in all I'm not feeling very accomplished because I'm so very behind on my Etsy shop project. I don't know if it's the lack of motivation or the heat or what, but finishing my illustration seems like the hardest thing at the moment. But I'm gonna post a sneak-peak tomorrow - so that perhaps I could get some feedback - good or bad. But do enjoy!

I wish I had a mango tree!

I received this gorgeous dress about a week ago from I've never really had a dress like this, mostly because strapless dresses tend to be quite uncomfortable, constantly slipping down etc. But as for my suprise this dress is so unbelievable comfortable and I'm aslo loving this material - there is a lot of fabric, but somehow it still feels very light and airy. But do enjoy!
