sweets for my sweet on a sweet voyage

Well, it seems that I am in a 'pinkish' mood as far as drawing is concerned. The first pic is unfinished I'd say. The second I really like. And the third came out of sketches I was making for FIMO jewlery that I'd like to make soon. I don't really have a sweet tooth, but I like how sweets look. We'll see how that idea turns out.

Anyway, sweets-related, I have to mention Stephanie Kilgast here. Her skill is completely amazing! My personal favourites are her breads. Bon appetite!

another Schiele

Here's another take on Schiele in polymer clay.
As my attention span is that of a goldfish, it might be a while before I play around with this again. But so far, I like ;)

Also, I really want to do EDM#211 with Schiele in mind. But I have to ponder about it a little first. I think it's called "relishing an idea" ;)

inkjet transfers onto clay - my first try!

I've come across an extremely helpful tutorial on transfers onto polymer clay, using inkjet printers - thanks Valerie!

It is something I've been really eager to try out, and I present you with the first result. It's a pendant for my boyfriend. The print was done on HP inkjet printer, using the cheapest baking paper in Holland (money is always tight in my household!) and I was really thrilled by the result!

Naturally, since I am a "baksuz", when I did a transfer for myself the printer went low on ink, and as if that wasn't enough - the clay tore when I was lifting it from the work surface. Buuuut, I didn't give up. So, on the second pendant I traced the picture (after baking it), using (again) the cheapest Stabilo pens, and then glazed it. I am very pleased with the result! 

The picture used for the first pendant is one done by my boyfriend, and for the second - Egon Schiele's Gerti Schiele in a Plaid Garment, one of my favourite pieces, by one of my favourite artiststhe original of which you can see below:

Wahey! And I hope you like as well.

P.S. I have no idea why some of the pictures are not clickable here. If you want a better view, please see my Flickr page

fill the blanks

I think it was Danny Gregory's advice with the blank squares and filling them out, that was supposed to fight productivity block. I have done nothing worthwhile in a month! Urgh.

And I also need to stop whining and get on with it

Ok, to be entirely fair, this is what I produced in the past month (other than completely useless tidbids that I would never post). 

The first pic is a sort of a wall illustration (it's about 2m high) done for my boyfriend - the facial i-am-not-amused expression is entirely his. The second pic are rings (or soon to be rings) done in FIMO, wire and felt. That was going horibly wrong as well.

I want my productivity baaaack!


All of my EDM challenges so far. I am posting this to boost my drawing efforts. I have done nothing for ages! How horrible. I hate being unproductive!

a new leaf aka a new page

I have been quite dormant for a month or so, and in my constant attempt to be organized I have been posting old things first. I think from now on I will try to be more up-to-date :) Oh bummer, that means I don't really have anything to post today.

Well, I can at least mention that I have opened a shop at Zazzle with some of my designs.

personal stacks - things that make me go mmmmm

It might be immodest, but I really like these. Maybe because they are personal.

on hold

I have suddenly been very unproductive these days. I ma still scribbling a bit, but really don't like anything I do lately. Perhaps posting something old migh help.
When I did these, I was interested in different perspectives. All were pencil on paper and coloured in PhotoPaint.
