The past couple of weeks I finally had time to start drawing and experimenting again.
All of them are made with watercolour crayons and/or pen and ink.

They are all based on pictures out of magazines like Elle, Lula ans I-D magazine.

This is the first one I made in a really long time, and probably the one I am the least happy with out of all of the following

I just love to work with pen & ink and watercolour crayons and do think they combine very nicely. This is the very first real drawing I just made with watercolour and it is the base of the rest of the drawings...

What are the materials you love to work with? And do you have any tips for me to optimalize my work ? :)

tuna sandwiches

I absolutely love tuna sandwiches with home made tunasalad.
To make my favorite tuna salad you need the following ingredients:

The recipe is enough to make sandwiches out of a whole loaf of bread.

2 cans of tuna
3 sweet and sour pickles, finely chopped
1 apple, chopped in dices of apr. 1cm
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
2 tablespoons of capers
1 red onion, finely diced
4 heaped tablespoons of low-fat mayonaise of creme fraiche
salt and pepper to taste

All you have to do is to mix the ingredients and the salad is ready to eat!
