So happy

Thank you for encouraging words on possible-job. I got the it!! And made the (oh-so-tight) deadline, and Client was so happy. Which made me so happy! Ohoh – and it was sooo much fun. I'm so so happy :-)

I made some illustrations for a Danish magazine - the issue will be out November 1st, and I will put them on the blog then :-)

Links, and another design job back from the printers' tomorrow. 'Till then, have a beautiful day

More beautiful book work

I bought these books at Faber&Faber a while ago. I adore the covers – Ariel in particular (or maybe it's because I like Sylvia Plath :-) More about the covers here.
I need to move at quite the pace these days. Last week I was contacted to do a job, that — if everything works out — could be so so awesome. I keep my fingers crossed. And will tell you about it later, of course :-)
Have a wonderful Monday

I can't stop laughing ...

I got this book, and I can't stop laughing. Right now, I'm thinking it's the best book I've EVER seen. I love my profession, and this book is that love bookificed. Hands down!

Created by Norwedian type-guys (not Norwedian type, but Norwedian guys who dig type), in collaboration with Arctic paper. You can find the guys here (at Studio 3), and the book (Hyperactivitypograhy) here.

Just love it!

Lime Leaf Orange Blossom Sunday Self-Indulgence

Making home made, all natural salt scrub with abricot kernel oil, sea salt, crushed lime leaves and orange blossom oil.

It's great for the shower, and also for keeping next to the kitchen zink, to use after handling greasy foods, or for post-dishwashing.

My hands smell so nice right now ...

Gentle day

A few things found on the street lately. And a few things from the drawer.

I have to be careful today. "Doing taxes" is on the list, and mind keeps wandering to other (more exotic) places.
When not looking, my fingers play with the mouse on the desk, and suddenly this little lamb shows up on the computer screen (Sweetpeatoad. + Etsy).
hm... I wonder if today will be the day I get those taxes done ...

I made a series of feather drawings in preparation for this book cover I did. Only one made the cut for the final design.

The book is the Danish edition of Daily Guidance From Your Angels by Doreen Virtue; a book with a little meditation for each day.
According to Doreen's site Angel Therapy, today's meditation is:

»You have the power to create or eliminate stress, debt, and pain. Today, choose peace.«

:) More angels:
Dottie Angel
Grafitti Angel

There Are Reasons... Reason #1

There are reasons why Autumn is my favourite season, and today I indulged in one of the big ones: Mushroom Hunting. The sun shone warmly and the forest smelled wonderful as we gathered enough to go around. A glorious day indeed.

There are more pictures and a recipe at Clemmensen&Brok :-) I hope to see you there.
