"What? Just because he doesn’t need to eat, doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy some ice cream once in a while.."
Well, here’s my entry for the “Design your Demon” contest. I wanted to make it humorous but it does have a bit of a personal side to it - though I’m not going to elaborate (use your imagination). 
I don’t have a cool name for him like some of the entries of other artists. I think I’ll call him Pookie… or Abu.

moleskinelovers: submission by nathaliedevalliere
Thanks for posting my work!


so I updated my website today. 
this shot took soooo long to get right. I actually had to carry the table and all the materials outside so I could get an aerial shot of the whole work space - and then it started raining. you can imagine my joy. 
I do like the result though.. for now. I’ll probably update it again in a couple of months.

*bashful smiley* thank you (this means a lot coming from a fellow artist) love yours too!

wow - the highest rated post on this blog is something I spent less than 20 min on. y’all are fucking crazy. the pieces I spent more than 2 days on have a fraction of the amount of notes.
I’m gonna go cultivate a mushroom colony in a corner now.
the cake is for Lee Rubenstein - Thank you so much for reposting my work on EatSleepDraw (a second time) :)

practicing my portrait skills for next week! I was invited to the opening of this new installation / sculpture in Zurich to draw portraits of visitors (perhaps you’ve heard of the “Hafenkran”?) I’ll be working at the booth of the magazine I interned for a couple of times, Strapazin
