Inktober 2018 #7

I wonder who’s more exhausted today: me after a whole weekend of birthday celebrations (yay/yikes, I’m 30!) – or the actor who played Tarzan in the musical that I went to see yesterday.

Probably me, because Tarzan is in a lot better shape than I am. Which justifies me posting this a day late, maybe!

I’m super happy as well, though – about the musical as well as all the birthday fun.

Inktober 2018 #2

The prompt for Day 2 of Inktober is “tranquil” and my brianstorm quickly centered around coffee. Partly inspired by all the cool coffee art in my feeds yesterday (apparently a kind of coffee celebration day?).

When I REALLY tried to think past coffee (which is difficult at any moment of my day), I thought of yoga. So here we go:

Dont know how tranquil that experience would be IRL.

Peach at the beach

Summer has been incredibly hot in Denmark this year, and I drew this doodle on a warm day in late July while still on vacation. I didn’t get around to post it then – probably because I was too lazy in the heat and my hands were too sweaty for typing.

Anyway, if it’s not obvious, the inspiration for this doodle is the peach emoji. The peach meaning “butt” is very old news, but my doodle ended up as a relatively proper bathing suit version.

I haven’t seen this bathing suit design IRL anywhere, but it would be great if it exists.

Old little horsy

This week I read about the 40.000 year old baby horse that was recently found in Siberia (in this Danish article). I couldn’t stop staring at the photo of the little horse, and I obviously had to draw it. Here’s the result:

The horse’s snout (is that the proper word? Muzzle?) is a bit long in my drawing which I think makes it look less horse-like than in the photo. But I don’t mind, because I think my doodle of the old horse is almost cute. And it continues to amaze me how ancient creatures can be preserved in ice for tens of thousands of years.

I didn’t do any post-editing on this drawing like I normally do, so it’s just pen on paper. A very different style than the last couple of doodles that I’ve posted which have a lot of digital work in them.

I might post more simple doodles, because they take less time to do and I quite like the look.

Painting a couch cat

I don’t paint very often, because I’m always clumsy and the paint gets everywhere. But today I felt like it and made this relaxed couch cat:

I haven’t been drawing a lot lately because I’ve been on a bikepacking vacation for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend (including some days spent chilling with my sister’s cat in a house by the beach 😎). But now I’m back with all my paper and pens and computer and stuff, ready to doodle and maybe paint some more. And hopefully be as relaxed as couch cat until I go back to work next week.

(I didn’t realise while painting this that the cat is either really big or the couch is really small 😂)

Napping bag

I love it when summer is a bit chilly and windy (like in Denmark at the moment) so I can hang out outside in the shade in my sleeping bag.

We’re testing out our camping gear at the moment to prepare for a bike packing trip next week. So I need to REALLY check if my sleeping bag is good.

We spent two nights in our new tent in the garden, which was so fun that it almost made me want to stay home. But (luckily) we have family and friends to visit, so we have to pack up the tent and get going soon.
