FKA Twigs mini painting

Dear FKA Twigs,

I have listened to your song Two Weeks 52 times today, so I thought a little artistic tribute was in order.

Happy 2014 in ink

Lady with champagne fashion sketchThis is what I wish I’d look like on a typical New Year’s Eve celebration. Instead I was at home, wearing a worn out set of Yoga pants and a tartan Uniqlo fleece. I’m not a big fan of celebrating the passing of time. Another year closer to the big 3-0, another calender year gone, not exactly reasons to celebrate.

However, I did take the opportunity to come up with a list of impressive resolutions. Spending more time on art, for instance. And being more positive about the fact that this time passes so bloody quickly.

Trust no one this Halloween

Not even family…

Halloween illustration of creepy girls

Illustration in Eerie Ink and Weirdo Watercolour to celebrate Halloween. Pretty pleased no one came by my house tonight. I have a single onion and balsamic dressing from 2011 in my kitchen cupboard.

Chvrches ink drawing

Have been listening to Chvrches a lot lately… Especially like the dirty sounds of the song Lies. Click the image for a larger version and do it justice.

Lady Gaga – Applause

Lady Gaga - Applause painting

Watercolour and ink illustration of Lady Gaga in my favourite Applause video look. Yes, the non make-upped bath cap one… Why? It just works when you have such an interesting (A.K.A. weird shaped) face like Gaga. 

Andy Hickinbottom fan art: Candy

Based on Candy, a character by Andy Hickinbottom – apparently she is part based on me! So I gave her a teethy kind of look.



Happy in a poncho

As Vince Noir once said to Howard Moon: “It’s impossible to be unhappy in a poncho“. And he’s right. Even a cold day in January can feel just like summer when wearing Uniqlo’s new poncho style fleece.

Go on, try it. Happiness guaranteed.

Start NEW in 2013
