All of them are quite small, since it’s easier for me not to get too carried away with details that way. Trying to keep it simple! That way there’s no pressure 🙂

Day 21

The October 21st! The birthday of the most awesome silver haired lady of them all! (Aka my badass grandma).

I wanted to make something that would show her deep love of vegetables and her unbreakable sense of independence. Sadly I didn’t have much time to get it done, but I did what I could 🙂

Hope the image quality isn’t too bad! Both the banner image and the one below were taken with a phone camera. I didn’t have a chance to scan it (or take proper pictures) before giving it away.

Not a hair out of place, no matter how rough the adventure ♥

Day 19

I was a little dry for ideas… that was, until I took a good look at my (messy) desk. There was a little plastic container full of thumbtacks.

Hmmm. I thought.

Uh! what if it was giant?

Why not? It could be a strange land. The land of thumbtacks. Or it was the sacred thumbtack. 

Oh! I know…!

The Adventures of the to-do list!

I shall not let procrastination win!

Day 15

I didn’t really know what to draw on this day, but I knew I wanted to follow Illustration Friday’s theme of the week , which was “star”. I used one photo I took of my niece years ago as reference for the pose and clothes.

I tried out a paper that -turns out- wasn’t very watercolor-friendly and I had a lot of color-on-color stains. I cleaned them out to the best of my ability after scanning, but for some reason I still felt the image was not good enough to submit to Illustration Friday, so I didn’t. While now that days have passed I like the overall image a bit more, I’m still a little sad the original picture is all stained on my sketchbook 😦

On the other hand, I’ve tried to stay away from what I’m used to, drawing more anime-like faces, and sometimes it’s really hard for me to portray good emotion with a non-cartoony or anime face. At least in that regard, I’m happy.

Day 7

I don’t remember why, but this day was particularly insane. I didn’t know what to draw and after my initial idea kind of failed, I decided to do a “cover” for my inktober thingies. Well, sort of. I’m not entirely happy with how it turned out, but I still like the idea.

Trying to do cool handwriting is haaard.


Day 8

October 8th, the most awesome and majestic day of the year… yes: it’s my birthday 😀 Since it was a very busy (and so full of food I could practically roll by the end of the evening), I did a quick drawing, of course, about the topic.

YES, I’m one of those annoying people in love with their own birthday.


Day 9

The following day, as there were still leftovers from the celebration the day before, I felt I needed to do a little comic strip, again straight out of real life..

(And as if to punish me for the joke and my super healthy eating, I got sick shortly after posting the comic on social media. Oh, the irony.)

In case you were curious, once is a meal we have in Chile, before or instead of dinner. It’s typically tea/coffee + a sandwich and/or a small pastry.
