Planning is important…

… but so is doodling!

Which is why I made this packing list last summer for our camping trip around the North of Denmark:

Today we’re (trying to start) packing for this year’s trip, so I found this on our computer to get started.

Except, now I just want to draw, and not pack… Which I think is what happened last year 😀

Last year we were packing to only travel by bike, but this year we’re bringing the bikes along with us in the car. We’re also going to a wedding in the middle of our trip, so we probably have to bring more clothes and stuff.

There’s room for more doodles in the drawing, which means I can cram more stuff in the car, right?

Fun fact: Our bottle of shower gel doesn’t really have a picture of a naked butt on it, but I had fun drawing it that way.

Can you guess what all the other bits and bobs are supposed to be? If not, ask me in the comments 😀

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 😂)

Blob dogs

These puppers are only now realising that they’re on summer break. And it’s a very blobby feeling! (Yes I’m on summer break from today and my brain is a blob).

You’re welcome to print out the blobby dogs and put them on your office door (or wherever you work) to let your colleagues know when you’re away for the summer. I put a less creative tiny note on my door today, since I hadn’t made these blobs yet. Maybe I’ll make a “back to work” or “Hello I’m back” version in August.

This blob dog was the first one I doodled:

It showed up in the middle of another drawing and inspired the making of the rest of the pups, so I decided to honour it with its own colours (which very much makes it look like a balloon animal).

German doodles #1

My recent trip to the Harz, Germany mainly consisted of cycling in hilly terrain and eating delicious german food. Which is a hardcore combination!
But I also had time to draw some quick doodles during cake breaks in a small notebook that I carried around with me. Most of them are inspired by people (and dogs) that I noticed somewhere. Here’s the first batch:

“Look, honey – there’s that thing!”

 

“I smell curry wurst.”

Cool and calm cake-chopping lady.
