I just finished #inktober2017. I had a lot of fun! I focused on character design by creating my own versions of Goddesses. Here they are, joint together and if you are interested to read about them as well, go to my instagram.com/frida_hammar where I have posted text about the Goddess under the right Goddess illustration.

Bootcamp sketches! I am taking the Bootcamp course by Lilla Rogers and the first assignment is to create an abstract pattern for a Back- pack, so fun!

Inspired by International women's day and made a pattern out of some of my sketches!

Hat ladies in my sketchbook! I will definitely be making a summer pattern out of these beauties!

Tigers!

Houses, boats, stones and trees in my sketchbook....

For these characters, I use felt pens, (Stabilo). It is a fun technique. First, I use the pen to draw up the character, then I use a brush with clean water on it to get the watercolor effect. My son sits next to me and we work side by side, I love to draw with my children.

"HOME DECOR - PLATES"

For this assignment I did a lot of sketches, only three made it to the final collection. Although it´s hard to not include all of your hard work into the collection, I love the editing part. I really enjoyed working inside circles,

whenever I have more time I am going to make this in to a pattern as well!

Here are some of my sketches, see the whole collection here : ILLUSTRATION

"PASTA AND PYREX"

My sketchbook has a new theme which was given to me by an online course that I am currently taking. (Mats A/Make art that sells) The first assignment was to get inspiration from "Pasta and Pyrex". Next step was to make it into a pattern appropriate for kitchen.

Here are some of my sketches, as you can see, some made it to the pattern, some didn't. The final pattern you can see here: ILLUSTRATION
