A slow comeback

Agian... late...

I hope you haven't given up on me!

So actually I have been a bit slow since we've been back from vacations. Not much inspiration. I guess also a bit busy with a friend visiting and working on a paper we want to get published from my time in Spain. Kind of cool  as well :)

In the cool news, I have accepted a job offer and will be working when I go back to the Netherlands, and its a nice part time job with the same EU project of Spain! :D My boyfriend and I have also decided to get a dog.. yeah i know! Crazy! I know its a big responsability, but I'm really looking forward to it and reading allot. I think it will be good to have a companion and a good reason to go out! Training the dog sounds also like a good challenge of discipline. Plus, Holland is a perfect place to have a dog! With parks, bicycle lanes, beach close by, etc!

This is why this is the first sketch:

It has been hard work to find the right dog for us. But I think it is good to know what you are looking for and study the different races you had in mind. Allot of people get pets without knowing what they are going for (myself being one of those people with Bob the chameleon). Also nowadays you have so much information and people that are patient enough to maintain a blog with their experiences :) really nice! We have contacted different kennels after deciding on 3 races, and now its down to 2! I will keep you posted!

I also wanted to show you the final product of the snorkeling blog :) (i have to apologize for the quality of the pictures). The moleskine paper is interesting with aquarel, quite a thick paper very different to aquarel paper, i guess its very soft. I hope now I'm back on routine I can get more inspiration from other bloggers! Get a project again! 

Ah yes, and the baby card is a success! It is now being printed for a try-out, and well baby will be born soon so we will receive a picture if this happens before we get back :) And of course you'll get to see it!
Oh and next post I will show you the results from the printing session today!

Back from vacation!

Oh guys!

I'm so sorry I haven't updated in yearsssss haha well, you know I went on vacation to the beach, and that I would make a drawing per day...

I sucked at this.

So between dives, beach and sleeping at 10pm I really didn't get to draw much :( sorryyyyyy I guess it has to do with the fact that I don't want to "ruin" my sketchbook or maybe that i just want to draw when I have an idea and not so much doodle.. I don't know. I think I should try this exercise again.

But anyways, I did draw something! haha

First are there hermit crabs that you see allot in these parts, and following a previous post of a crab carrying a house HERE  I got inspired to make other ideas, other islands. Still haven't decided if I just want to leave them like this or colour them.

This other 2 spread was an idea that Joost got to make a log of the things we saw while snorkeling in a wonderful place called Xcalak, almost at the mexican border with Belice. This picture is in the beginning, I have already added more and coloured them! I will post that picture soon - I just wanted to leave an update!

Hope you enjoy them, more updates to come in following days!!!

Oh and if you're interested in our travels, you can check out the other blog I keep:
