This is a character I might use as the main character of a story some day. I've named her Kim for the time being. There's still a lot of things about this story that I have to work out, but I liked the sketch and thought I'd share it with you. :)

"I Date Dead People" coming out next week!

Heya there!

My latest graphic novel "I Date Dead People" will be coming out next week on april 1st (no, that is not a joke). You can already purchase it on, where they seem to have it in stock already!

For that reason, I took a few photos of my sample books to show you here. I've been wanting to do that for a while now as I received them months ago, but with all the moving and chaos, I didn't get around to do it.

So, have a look:

As with the last book "I Love Him to Pieces", there are two editions - the more expensive library edition with hardcover and the regular softcover edition. Both of them are manifactured in really amazing quality, so whichever you choose will look great.

Wedding invitation (Commission)

Here's a commission I just finished for a couple who wanted me to paint something for their wedding invitations. They'll also be getting the original illustration to hang on their wall, which is really sweet and it kind of honors me. ^^

I wish both of them very, very good luck for everything and lots of happiness as a married couple!

Os deseo muchísima suerte en todo y mucha felicidad como matrimonio! :D

Shop Office (ToonPool) - yet another shop!

Yup, I've set up yet another online store!

ToonPool offers these online shops for free, and I'll have to see how it goes.
The artist receives 70 % of the netto income (so you have to subduct the production cost of an item and purchase tax first) of the sales, which is a lot more than most places have to offer. In any case, if you have another recommendation, by any means, let me know. ;)

Anyway. While my BigCartel shop offers much more personal items (original paintings, signed books or prints - which I hopefully can add soon), my ShopOffice store will have licence-free and/or licensed artwork for download for personal and professional use, and also offers printed goods like posters or t-shirts.

I'll be sure to add more stuff soon, but you can already go and check it out! :)

(Not so) Weekly study: Backgrounds (1)

Yeah, so I promised to do weekly studies and uploaded just one, and then we moved to our new house and everything got crazy and I didn't do any more sketches. OK, but I do want to re-take that habit!

So today's not monday, my usual weekly-study-day, but who cares.

Here are a few sketches I did this morning:

After finishing today's breakfast. I woke up one hour too early! I thought it was 10, but it was only 9 o'clock. *yawn*

I did some work in the garden... There are these weird concrete slabs rammed into the earth where the vegetable patch was and will be. I have no use for them so I have to dig them out. Hard work, believe me! They are SO heavy! And I dropped one on my knuckles of the left hand (which is now blue-ish and a little swollen). Ouch.

Oh, but there are beautiful snowdrops blooming in various corners of the garden! So pretty. =D

Enough for today. As you might see, my sketches / studies might become something like a diary. Well, not all the time, I guess. But I think it's kind of cool. :)

"Year of the Dragon" - FOR SALE

Yay, first painting in our new home! Okay, so I actually started this before we moved, but I finally got around to finish it.

2012 is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese calendar!

In the end the illustration a bit late since the "Year of the Dragon" celebrations are already over, as far as I know. But I hope you still enjoy it. Everyone loves dragons, right?

The original painting is FOR SALE in my new web shop - go check it out!

Oh, yeah. Here's a step by step of the piece before starting with the watercolors. :)
