Identity driven Goals – webinar replay

Do you have planned your 2020 goals yet? Try drawing them! I drew mine in last Tuesday’s Drawing Club webinar. I made them “identity-driven goals, which is an idea that comes from Seth Godin. I explain it in the webinar. Here you can see the full replay (partly sped up) and the feedback round. I put it into…

New year, new decade, new adventures!

Let’s turn time back a few days to when I started writing this article. It is the 31. 12.2019. I am moving tables around instead of writing. My teenage son is going to have his new year’s party in my studio, and I have to make space for dancing. It looks like my new year’s…

Happy holidays … with random animal.

As you know, I am a visual storyteller, and creative by profession. To create a holiday illustration shouldn’t be a problem, right? Everybody is writing holiday greetings! But. I have been procrastinating for days. Time is running out, and impostor syndrome is creeping in… I try to draw Santa Claus in his sleigh. No. Much…

How to make people buy from you

  I’m trying to learn as much as I can about business. It is not something that comes naturally to me. I’m an artist! I’m not supposed to think so much about business! (Maybe you can relate to this kind of thinking?) Well. After living quite some years I am slowly finding out that nobody…

Octopus, tomatoes and a volcano

We just came back from an all-too-short holiday in Sicily. It was wonderful, and so packed with hikes, sightseeing and Sicilian delicacies that I almost didn’t have time to draw.

Glamorous Ice Queen Look

Jammed head versus clear head

This drawing is inspired by a little text by success and resilience coach Sara Priestley: “Jammed” head is likely to be looking “outside” for reasons and fixes. “Clear” head is likely to feel happier and have more confidence.
