New Month, New Plans

Fall is almost here and it's time for planning.

Last month I spent a long time setting up this website and paving the road for this new trip I have begun; now the time has come for some concrete actions.

First of all, I will soon be launching an e-shop, where you will be able to buy prints, original paintings and also lots of colourful accessories bearing my unique designs - for example phone cases, tote bags, cushions and so on. I am very excited about this and I cannot wait for the official opening!

I am, of course, continuing to work on the next Bambu Book and we will soon reveal the front cover and release date, so stay tuned! In the meantime you can check my gallery for some of the illustrations you will find in the book.

From now on, I also want to take part to more Instagram challenges, since they are a great opportunity to experiment, improve different techniques, develop a style, and also discover other amazing artists.

The first one I am going to attempt is the #StorybookSeptember *, which will take place between the 12th and 22nd September, when artists will be posting on Instagram 6 illustrations of 6 famous fairytales: Thumbelina, Mary Poppins, The Neverending Story, The Ugly Duckling, Pippi Longstocking and a Fairytale of their choice.

Here is a sneak peak of a detail of one the drawings I've started for this challenge:

This month I will also start prepping sketches for a big challenge that takes place in October. You may have heard of it already, yes, I am talking about Inktober: 31 ink drawings, one for each day of October.

The list of prompts went live just a couple of days ago, and my head is already buzzing with ideas!

Lots to look forward to then, and I hope you will stay tuned to share this adventure with me!
