Alongside my very dear book project “The Baron” I drew some other motorcycles as well during last year. You can say I kinda fell for them ❤ Especially in the old race motorcycles there’s such simplicity and beauty. And the thought alone to be illustrating motorcycles for kids charmed me… I could use all the color palettes I wanted, I could illustrate all the tiny bits with as much fun as I only could!
This Ducati from the year 2002 is one of my favorites. It just keeps charming me!
Yes, it was a small and cute one ❤

And more cogwheels.
I’m working on a book on motorcycles (and drivers, especially one!) and it’s turned out to be a specifically delicious theme for me to work on. So I’ve ended up doing different kinds of work-in-progress stuff just for the fun of it!
#36daysoftype 2017 was fun! It’s a design / illustration challenge, where there’s a letter or a number for every day during the challenge period. Here are my letters. Diamonds, girls, french-kissing snakes, legs, wheel of fortune, mountains to climb, moon, cartwheels, kangaroos.. And even one of my favorite song of all times, “Twilight driving” (check it out!).
And my numbers:
And there’s always those you love more than others…
That’s all folks.
It’s a bit of a no-brainer for an illustrator to say this… but I love colours. LUV. They’re probably a big reason why I ever chose to become an illustrator in the first place.
And I love working with them. In a wider sense they’re attached to everything – events, feelings and phases in my life.
Recently I’ve started to make color palettes from each week. I select colors from illustration assignments I’ve been working on, and then think of the colors my mind has been most busy on. I don’t pay attention all that much to shapes and elements – even though I pick out something new every time.
Here’s my autumn so far:
