Dear Santa, if you are listening...

... I would be very interested in this Leica X3 camera. I promise to be really good!

Seriously, what a cool piece of design this is! It is a concept of Vincent Säll

It even has my favourite focal length of 35 mm! Pity it is a bit improbable, but oh well, I bet that this is what people were talking about electricity ;)

Back to the colour

And who can be even more colourful than David Bowie himself?

Today's post is inspired the interview with a lovely Belgian journalist (if you are reading this Liselot it was a real pleasure to meet you!) who interviewed me today about my work as an illustrator and my life in Scotland. 

One of the thoroughly researched questions was about my recent announcement about leaving the world of colour for the world of calligraphy and more muted tones. 

As you can see, I was not able to give up completely my usual bright colours so I combined the brights with some typography in a wee hommage to one of my favourite artists.

It is time to...

The thing that fascinates me the most about Scotland is how far, far long ago the history that we are still able to witness today still goes into the past. 

This feeling was an inspiration for this drawing (as usual the photo was taken by me):

Playing with words

I would like to get away from pretty drawings of fashionable girls on World's Women Day and play more with illustrating concepts... like words. Somehow recently I am all about lettering, calligraphy and fonts so this post is no surprise.

Images used as a background were also taken by me, letters are calligraphed by me (using my favourite, splayed brush) and I am also modelling in the images with my own goosebumps :
