As I love making lists I thought sharing my wish list (and telling everyone it's the perfect gift guide for all those illustrators and designers in your life) would be a fun thing to do.
I'm trying to make more illustrations and to get better at making digital illustrations, so for my 29 before 30 challenge (something I'm covering mainly on my other blog) I decided I would make at least one illustration every quarter. We're already in quarter two, so I'm going to show you the first two illustrations. [Dutch intro in article]
When I first got into graphic design I got really excited about all the cool tools I needed to buy. All those new toys! My excitement quickly faded, because everything seemed super pricey. So I thought I'd show you around my toolbox, talk about all my favourite tools and give you some tips on the tools you really need and how you can do things cheaper.
In February I challenged myself to 30 Days of Lettering. I spend 15 minutes a day making quick sketches of a quote I picked in order to practise composition of words. It was the perfect 30 day challenge: not too hard and very informative. Curious to what I've been up to? Let's take a peek in my sketchbook.
It's the season to be jolly and the season for gift guides! As I love making lists I had a lot of fun putting together this gift guide for the illustrators, graphic designers and hand letters in your life. Or people with aspirations in that direction. Or, you know, just generally the creatives in your live.
It shouldn't surprise you that I love art supplies and I love discovering new tools. When I saw Brush pens popping up for the first time, it made me very curious. So I bought a Pentel Colour Brush pen and a Kuretake brush pen and tested them.
A long time ago, I started my first blog. I can't recall what the first blog post was about and I doubt it might have helped me write this one. So let's start with a little introduction. My name is Eline and I want to be a creative entrepreneur.
