Hello, it has been a while since my last post. I have been super busy with my contract work and at the same time, I’m updating this site. You probably already notice the site design has changed and I have removed the portfolio link, i want to keep my graphic design work separated from this site which is more for art and craft, inspiration and hopefully some DIY projects.
Anyway, the one big change i have and very excited about is, I have a shop! At the moment, it only has a small selection of my handmade miniature artist’s book with wooden cover, but i promise I will add more products gradually. I’m still working on the idea of products to sell.
Here are a few things on my list i need to do before I can officially announce about my new site (I can’t wait!)
1. gohlikim logo. The one you see right now is just a place holder. I’m thinking having gohlikim written in watercolour. (done!)
2. New illustration for the front page. I want to try watercolour!
3. Adding at least 2 DIY or printable projects.
Here is it for now. I have to put my updating hat back on.
Getting my family Christmas cards ready to post!
I have a new walking dogs series added to my dog illustration collection, they are available to be licensed exclusively through iStock.
There will be more to come!
The past 6 weeks i attended the botanical watercolor illustration class with Penny Gould and it was fantastic. In these 6 weeks, I’ve learned so much and I’m very pleased with my progression. The rose hips painting was from class #5 and in my last class of ivy plant drawing, Penny suggested to add it behind the rose hips. I like the rose hips painting very much and was so nervous on the whole process of adding the ivy plant because I was scared i might mess it up. It turned out nice, i’m so glad i took the challenge. Love it so much i think i might frame it. :)
This illustration is based on my best friend’s children and their pet. It’s available to purchase for both standard or extended licence through iStock.
