Sooo… On a health whim recently I decided to drink some lemon water in stead of coffee. Because sometimes I forget to drink anything other than coffee all day, and I get a bit weird. And the lemon water actually was… nice.
But the trend didn’t really stick for more than a day or two, because I love coffee so much.
So I kind of drew this to inspire myself to think positively about lemon water, and not just drink brown water (which coffee is known as in our home).
I know, guys – my life is incredibly exciting. Sometimes there’s water drama!
I made the design in Illustrator while sketching things out for a Danish food themed design competition (which I didn’t win, but the people liked my design and gave me free tickets for their event, so that was cool!).
Only the beet (in a different version) ended up in my final illustration, but I really like this pattern.
If you also think it’s cool, you can get it via the link on:
mugs, coasters, tote bags, water bottles and stickers (white background)
travel mugs and spiral notebooks (blue background).
Old drawings ❤
Now that I look at it, the design also reminds me of a squash comic that I made in the early days of this blog (over 4 years ago!):
So, I’ve been longing to get a dog for ages. However, it’s not very practical to have a dog in our apartment where it would be alone for several hours of the day.
Also, I might have a new favourite animal…
Last week, we went on a trip to a beautiful part of Denmark to mountainbike and hike (The purple blobs in the comic are supposed to be heather – Everything was purple and green!).
There were lots of sheep and goats hanging out in the hills. This particular teen lamb was extra cute and ran up to us to check us out. And then he/she just stood there for a while. Such a precious moment!
I’m not saying a sheep would be easier than a dog to have in our apartment. But I’m allowed to dream. Maybe we should get a dog and a sheep and they could be best friends?***
If you think this post has been too cute and happy and nice so far, I also got really excited when I saw a worm crossing a poop mountain in the middle of the road:
***Minutes later: I googled a bit and found this article from the Telegraph. So I guess that plan is settled.
When I’d started I just couldn’t stop drawing people at the beach. Here are some more:
The apprehensive guy with the bucket hat is a different version of the guy in the yellow bathing suit in my first beach doodle post. And he’s basically me at the beach when I haven’t gone for a while. I don’t want to get nipped by a crab!
Also, did you watch my drawing video of my other beach doodles? I’m definitely better at drawing doodles than I am at editing videos, but I also have about 20 years more experience with the former 😀
I’m working on some other non-beach doodles, so they’ll hopefully be up soon.
