I started this blog in January 2015. I wanted to have a platform of my own to do something, to post something. I have done so and enjoyed!
In preparing my own portfolio update recently I updated this blog first. Whilst testing out themes I compiled together the illustrations I had posted here 2015-2020. All of them were created with the idea of publishing them on a free platform where not a lot of traffic was happening. I liked what I saw, and realised what I owed to this blog.
Perhaps from now on I will take a different course here. I might do something, post something, a bit more. Since 2015 I’ve cut down eating ice cream but I still love the name – and the Blondie song!
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!
