Old toys and games

mikado drawing

I love to draw things, especially old things. Things that have gone through hands, through time, and have therefore a story to tell. They are used, have rusty parts, or parts that are worn out.

So I was really happy when Libelle Blos called me to draw some vintage toys and games. I cannot show you everything yet, cause it is still a surprise. But I can show something of the work in progress.

When I draw I mostly start out with a fineliner pencil. So the drawing is actually black and white until I scan it into my computer. There I change the colors and combine it with other scans of painted layers. I love the combination of making something hand drawn, and the computer giving me the freedom to play with it until I get it right.

Here you see the result of one of the games, but there is 13 more! Libelle Blos will be out on the 4th of september.
