The long summer is coming to an end, even if here in Brunei the temperature is pretty much the same all year round. These days, to me “summer” doesn’t have that much to do with sunshine and heat, but is more related to the two months where I travel a lot and work less. But now, as August has begun, it’s back to normal routines and schedules! August and September will be quite busy for me this year, but so far only with project I look forward to and enjoy.
One of the project that are taking up a lot of my time - and brain space - right now is a children’s yoga book I’m making together with a friend. She’s writing the story and I’m providing the illustrations. I have the motives pretty much all set, but at the moment I’m experimenting with what techniques to use, especially for the backgrounds. As the story takes place here on Borneo I want the illustrations to be lush, green and full of life and to achieve that I’ve been playing around with acrylic paint and digital effects. Not sure where all this will end up yet, but it’s definitely a fun creative process.
