Scoops are flying low these days, so I was pleased to see not my dessert ruined on the ground for a change: the banana has finally split for good. This food disaster definitely cried for a makeover! The title of the pic is ‘Death by ice cream’. It’s not the first time I see an […]
Snake swallows the elephant
At the office we have a whiteboard on the wall that we like doodling on, and my Friday afternoons are usually all about drawing and drinking lemon flavoured non-alcoholic beer to kick the weekend off. Today I sketched up these two guys (a normal distribution and a skewed distribution) to cheer up my colleague, inspired […]
Red Flags and Long Nights
I drew my first riot girl in December for a dataviz project and I’m still crazy about these grey illustrations with a twinge of red. This redraw was my practice for the weekend, inspired by the song by She Wants Revenge, Red Flags and Long Nights.
I’ve been long struggling with drawing hands but ended up either dropping the idea or covering them up somehow. A couple of weeks ago I saw a beautiful pocket universe illustration on Pinterest and thought I’ll just give it a try. It didn’t turn out as perfect but seems okayish as a first attempt.
I haven’t left the house for 48 hours as I’m not feeling that well lately plus I caught some kind of a virus. To chase my negative thoughts away I started to redraw my swimming girl into this quiet loneliness.
New KITS on the block
I just received my first drawing pad (a Wacom Intuos) yesterday and I literally can’t put the pen down ever since I unpacked it. I had the idea of the first illustration to create long before it has arrived. I read a drama by one of my favourite contemporary Hungarian poets (Je suis Amphitryon by […]
Say aloe to my little friends
Plants and I are in a continuous on-again, off-again relationship. Me trying to care, but they refuse to stay alive. The greatest shock came to me this summer when my all-time partner in crime, the dwarf pine threw up the sponge after 3 years. Even if there are hardships in life – in this case, […]
Some weeks ago I found this message in my fortune cookie: Pray for what you want, and work for what you need! After reading it, the thanks for nothing feeling was sweeping through me, pulping in my veins ever since, so I decided to bake my own misfortune cookies that will contain messages against humanity. […]
Vacation around my head
Since holiday this year means replacing the windows in the apartment with days of endless cleaning after, I decided to go back to my happy place for an imaginary vacation through drawing. When we were kids, we spent 10 days in the heart of the Bakony mountains every summer, camping the hell out of nature. […]
Make no little plans
It’s almost 35 degrees for 2 weeks now here in Budapest and all I can think of is learning the transfiguration charm and turning into a polar bear in the icy ocean. Since there’s no letter of acceptance from Hogwarts, I have the water spray bottle in my hands 24/7 (sorry plants, it’s just natural […]
Under the same sky
Guess this is clear by now, that I have quite a big obsession with space. I was more than devastated by not seeing the lunar eclipse last week, as I already imagined the big red moon up in the sky while humming the lines played at the binary sunset in Star Wars. The weather was […]
I’m never enough
Recently started to use drawing as therapy to get out of this thick bowl of shit I’m stuck into these days. When I thought I can’t get any more personal than this, here comes another drawing, inspired by the anthem of my love life from Santigold called Never enough.
Inner space – Outer peace
Daily commute has a lot of drawbacks: smelly people, more smelly people, smelly people rubbing shoulders with you, smelly people stopping you from catching the bus… but it definitely has one advantage, I have more shower thoughts on the metro than under the shower itself. Lately, I’ve been feeling so empty, that sometimes I cannot […]
Welcome to Me
Last week I wrote about putting together a list of the things that define me. I was in a really bad mood yesterday, so to absorb my negative energies I started to make a visualization out of it. I don’t think this could get any more personal, so I can only say: Hey, there! This is […]
The monster mug of motivation
When I need some time to relax, I usually go surfing on Etsy to discover things I want like crazy, but won’t ever buy because the shipping fee costs more than the product itself. When I so this mug I had the same feeling, but after contemplating for a couple of minutes, I said to myself […]
This work of mine is an odd one out in the series of my data-driven designs. My very first standalone illustration was inspired by my boyfriend. A couple of weeks ago I was travelling home looking through the window of a stranger’s car when the idea popped into my mind. Making a personalized Scrabble board […]
Falling in love with Illustrator
Yesterday I finished a basic Adobe Illustrator course by Daniel Walter Scott, and it was pure magic. In a non-muggle world, Illustrator would be my patronus and the curvature tool my aparecium charm. I was awed from the very first minute of the training and still unable to glue back my chin where it belongs. […]
