It's my party and I cry if I want to / Hello?! Attention please! / Voices

This one turned out quite weird, but still... I do actually like it!
The girl with her legs up in the air is the birthday-girl, but she doesn't think she's getting enough attention. This definitely is a way to get attention!
For some reason I KEEP painting presents... I do actually like them more when still wrapped!
Tell me what you think!

I thought this one also fitted the Voices-Illustration-Friday-theme... Many people, a lot of voices

Birds day out at sea

And here's another one! I made this bird-drawing today. I'm not really happy with the result but I do really like the colours. I tried to make every bird a real character.

This is "birds day out at sea". And they're really enjoying the sea breeze and the sun! But as you can see the sea gull isn't very happy at the moment. That's because blue bird ( which isn't a blue bird ) jus't left a poo-poo at the right side of the drawing. The others don't really care ;)

After the wedding

Hello there!
It has been a while but here's a new illustration I made! The idea for this painting came out of the blue. Maybe that's why I'm in love with the BLUE BLUE BLUE wall behind this cute bride? She's definitely excited about all the presents she got today ! Unfortunately I haven't been able to get the colours 100% right, they're much better in real life! But well, I just hope you like all these chandeliers on the ceiling and presents on the floor!

Flying in the air by holding a balloon

How fantastic would it be if we could fly, high up in the sky? By holding a beautiful balloon ? It would be BRILLIANT!

Unfortunately my camera couldn't get the colours right. I left the bottom empty on purpose because otherwise you wouldn't know where to look ;)

Oh and please listen to this song while looking at this painting ( you can skip the first 18 seconds if you want to )

It's from Pixar's AMAZING Ratatouille and really inspired me for this work.

Waiting for my laundry ( in a bath with a big red ribbon )

You'll probably have to look twice before you get this one.

If you still don't see it...

It's a girl lying in her bath ( the brown thingy on the left is her hair! )

p.s.: yes I would LOVE a bath with a big red ribbon on it. Anything is so much more lovely with a red ribbon around it!

Rhythmic Gymnastics Girls

I love the Olympics! I'm always amazed by how fresh and healthy athletes look so because of Beijing this drawing.
( I'm actually quite proud of the legs!! ). More to come.

Definitely watch this full-sized because otherwise you'll miss the details!

My light-blue giraffe won't listen (not similar at all!)

My light-blue giraffe won't listen!
But still, who doesn't want to own a blue giraffe ?
Entry for Illustration Friday, because they aren't similar at all... Or ARE they similar? It's your choice...

Sailing in the night

This painting looks much better viewed digitally because it's pretty awful in real life. That's why I edited it digitally and well, it's acceptable now but it's definitely not my favourite!

Carousel in winter (Paris)

Another "Paris-painting". I have always loved these old-fashioned carousels, and I decided to make a colourful one out of this.

Oh by the way, the yellow one in the front will be mine. You're free to sit on the one you like the most!

(Please click on the painting so you can watch it full-sized. The white on the bottom may look too white but that's because of the photograph! Sorry for that )

Girl in Paris (selling flowers )

Today I finished this drawing of a girl in old-fashioned Paris, she's selling flowers. I got my inspiration from a book with a lot of incredible old pictures of Paris. I did change some things to make it my own and I'm defenitely going to do more of these Paris-works!

Please watch full-sized (click!) to see details

Sad willow in the cold blue ( or: Sad Sparkling Willow in Vacantness )

I just painted this willow. I am going to add something else to it but it has to be something really good, and I haven't got anything in mind yet! So that's why it's only a lonely willow, but I like him :) Just as he is standing there.
This is also my entry for Illustration Friday's "vacant".

And a colour variation I did digitally

This is the final drawing. I'm going to leave it like this, just simple. Added a few "dots"

Arrogant dog out for a walk

I'm still working on the background, but it's hard! ( Maybe I'm just going to draw a simple, light-coloured Eiffel-tower, something recognizable ). But I have to admit that I'm proud of the fence, the dog and the trees! Oh, and I like the colours. Hope you like it too! Let me know.

Anyway I called this drawing "Arrogant dog out for a walk". I think you'll understand!

( Made the drawing a little darker, digitally. Because I couldn't get it right with my camera )

Happy Birthday - cake

Last evening I got totally fascinated by this photo

This delicious birthday-cake was made by a woman who makes the most beautiful creations ( check out more:

So I decided I wanted to draw this cake. And this is the result.

When I was done I thought the cake looked ok, but I wasn't happy with the over-all look. So that's why I added some more cakes which I made up myself. And NOW I'm happy!

!! Please !! Click on the picture to watch it full-sized because the colours look awful in this small version!

Little girl

Development for a little girl. The upper girl at the far right will be the girl that I'm going to use in my next drawing. Stay tuned!

My personal Rainbow

Look, I've got a personal rainbow!


I have always loved cupcakes. I still love cupcakes. I will always love cupcakes. They are just yummy yummy yummy!

Animal sleep-over

All animals look cute when asleep. So how cute would it be if there would be an animal sleep-over?

Colourfully striped

I just drew another one. I've really tried to look at the curves of the hairs and the light to create depth in this drawing. I'm satisfied although the dog is looking a bit sad. Maybe he doesn't like his colours!

The beginning of The Dogs Book


Today I got the idea of making a little book about dogs. All sorts of dogs.. small dogs, large dogs, cute dogs, funny dogs. And I'll be drawing all of them.

These sugary poodles are the first result. I am going to use my own fantasy to change the dogs when I think this is necessary. And in the case of the poodles, I thought it would be brilliant if we would have coloured poodles! Babyblue with lavender, sugary pink with fresh orange... Hope you like them and please check out for more to come!
