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.

I think I will use these sketches for the last assignment in Make art that sells...

I been working on a cover for the fairy tale "THE WHITE CAT" by MARIE-CATHERINE D´AULNOY. It is a pretty weird story, and I had lot of fun creating this cover. This is an assignment from the online-course I am taking, MATS A, given by Make art that sells. I worked with gouache on this one, and then I used a free book-template to make into a book cover.

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.

Christmas in my sketchbook!

"ILLUSTRATING CHILDREN'S BOOKS, WEEK ONE,CHARACTER DESIGN"

I am taking an online course, "Illustrationg children´s books" given by Lilla Rogers/Make art that sell. I have chosen to work with a text about Ada Lovelace, written by Zoe Tucker. I love the text, so inspiring, and I adore Ada Lovelace. I made a lot of sketches this week! Here is some of them, looking forward to the next week! See the final character design here ILLUSTRATION

"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

"LOTS OF COLOR"

My theme this summer has been "lots of color" and I just can't get enough of gouache!

"LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD"

Working on a fairy tale-theme where I want to mix the fairytale with more up to date elements. In this tale I chose to update little red riding hood's clothes. I made a lot of sketches, added watercolor, I scanned them and did some digital adjustments. I probably gonna make some more!
