Thoughts, single words, lyrics or quotes that I find running through my head over and over again and dear feelings are usually a sign for me that they need to "get out" as an illustration on paper. And the character forms I draw change their usual appearance through the texture of the paper and/or the stroke of the pencil I'm using.


They are all drawn on 190g/qm thick paper without the use of transfer, transparent paper or a layout table. I draw and finish the illustration in one day.
