Swol sourdough is back!

I’ve been baking sooo much bread lately, and it reminded me of a dough doodle I made for #inktober 2018. If you love baking too, you can get the new, colourful Swol Sourdough as a sticker, on a mug or notebook (among other products) in my shop.

The old drawing looked like this:

And here’s the fresh version of “Swol Sourdough” as I’ve decided to name it:

You’d better pop it in the oven soon, before it spills out of its tin.

I put this design on stickers, mugs and more products in my Redbubble shop for other baking nerds flexing their dough muscles – you can see them all here:

Drawing process

The new and improved version of my dough doodle was drawn on paper using Windsor & Newton Promarkers and coloured pencils. Afterwards I did some digital editing in Gimp and Adobe Illustrator to give it some clearer colours and contrast. I also ended up using Adobe Draw to do the final line art. Needless to say, I spent many hours on perfecting this sourdough!

If you follow the blog, you might also have seen this sourdough doodle that I made a couple of weeks ago – also inspired by the doodle from 2018.

It’s funny how old drawings sometimes pop up in my head and inspire something new. I draw a lot of new things on paper and screen at the moment, too, but redrawing old stuff is very fun and challenging at the same time.

Doodle shop!

Hello guys, I’m excited to share that I’ve started a small shop on the site Redbubble. So far, I’ve uploaded 7 designs, including my Happy Dragon and my morning doodles – but I’m planning to make lots more.

Some of my product designs 🙂

You can check out my shop here, and see the stickers, mugs, tote bags and other products I chose to put my doodles on:

I’d be so happy if you would favorite the ones you like, or even buy something if you feel like it. Like it says in my Redbubble bio, it would be so fun to see some of my doodles travel the world.

If you do buy anything and take a photo, please tag me on Instagram with @wordsanddoodlesblog or #wordsanddoodles. I’d love to see where they go!

Also – let me know if there are any of the doodles here on the blog that you would like to see as a product in the Redbubble shop 🙂
