How nice is that?

Yesterday it was my 2year old son's Nikolas name day. Among the presents friends and family brought, 
was this lovely illustrated package with childrens clothes from Dupareil au meme
Nikolas and I made a deal...he will keep the clothes and I will keep the box! 
I wonder who the illustrator is! Do you know?

Round(ed) ...

...for IF
I love Matryoshka dolls and their rounded shape! A typical set contains three to twelve dolls and they are symbols of fertility and motherhood! This illustration is from a new project i am working.

Silent (or get well soon)!

This illustration was originally made for a "get well soon" card! 
The girl has a thermometer in her mouth and can not speak,so I think it fits this weeks topic "silent" for IF.

My Moo...

...mini cards are here! Yeah! I love 'em! 
I think Moo is the easiest way to have your cards ready, delivered to your door and you can have up to 100 different designs in each pack (I've created 10 for my mini cards). Thumps up for Moo!

From my sketchbook!

Here are some new (favorite) drawings from my sketchbook. I really have no idea how they going to turn out - usually I find out after I color them... :)
The last one is a tee's stamp for my husband (he is a bike lover)!
Oh! this post is also my submission for ArtJumble's topic of the week!

Lovely useful books to read...

Lately I've been thinking of starting my own business! I've been working as graphic designer for almost a decade, and also I've been doing illustrations for the magazines, newspapers or small clients I has working for. But as much as I enjoy my work I always looking for my next illustration project, no matter how large or small the project is. Plus, I became a mom and really need more time for my family and maybe working from home can offer me that...I hope!!! So this is why I am thinking maybe it's time to focus on illustration and start my own (small) freelance business. These 2 books really are full of useful and helpful tips if becoming a freelancer is what you have in mind!
Check them out:

Ιnvitation

My friend Evi asked me if I could prepare an invitation and a paper table mat for her little daughter's baptism using a photo of the baby. I wanted the invitation to look like it was hand drawn and hand painted. So I made an illustration on paper and used adobe's photoshop for the color. Here is the original illustration and the final result...

Soaked

This week's topic for IF is "soaked". I really wanted to post something for If-it's been quite long since my last submission! So I made a few changes to an older illustration (the colored one) of mine and here is my "soaked" contribution to IF's topic.

Danae

This is an illustration (or a portrait) of a friend of mine, Danae. 
The sketch is old -was made almost a year ago- but I've started painting 
it, a couple of days ago! Although the illustrated girl looks kind of sad, 
Danae is a really cool person to hang out with. You can check out her blog if you don't believe me!

e-invitation

I really love Vintage & Retro typography as well as the 50's colour palette! 
So when my husband and I desided that it was time to  go on with our son's 
Baptism & Christening, I knew exactly how the e-invitation -for our family 
and really close friends- would look like! It looked like this...

My happy little monster...

Inspired from my son Nikolas!
It is not completed yet, still needs a lot of work, but I think it's really cute!
