Hello from Stockholm

This will be my last post for a while. We arrived in Stockholm yesterday and after two weeks here I'll be heading to Helsinki. So this blog will be almost silent for the next four weeks.
Today we were visiting the Designhouse Stockholm with many great design products (as these things below).

In the south of Stockholm, Södermalm there is also a lot to discover. Today we were biking there, sitting in Café String, visiting lovely shops and relaxing in a park... we had a really nice day. Emma's Stockholm guide is very helpful!
Have a good summer, everyone!

Mustertussi notebooks

First of all thank you so much for your cute comments on my illustrations! I'm happy you like and enjoy them!
Today I want to show you some beautiful notebooks I found at a craft-material shop here in Berlin called modulor. (Btw: Modulor is worth a visit for everyone who loves to make things.)
These handmade notebooks by German artist Sabine Hartung are available under the name Mustertussi. They are made out of found and/or scanned material e.g. wallpaper, wood, lace, paperbags and fabrics. Sabine Hartung uses also paper in unusual colors, I like the black ones and the neon-series.
Shipping to Germany and Europe is possible via her German order form, for huger orders outside the EU you can also contact Mustertussi directly.

Little peek

You might have wondered why it has been so silent here on my blog lately. I've been so busy doing things for my university. Christine asked me about my studies. So I thought I'd show you a little peek into my illustration work I've been doing this semester. (Click on the images to see them bigger) These illustrations were originally inspired by the lyrics to the song "Promises like piecrust" by Carla Bruni.
Now my vacation started. And next week we are flying to Stockholm. It's a strange but good feeling to suddenly have so much free time. I hope you have a good time, too!

Photographer Ieva Jansone

Today I want to introduce you to the work of photographer Ieva Jansone and her blog Dinge Die Ich Mag (German for: things that I like). She writes in German, but her beautiful photograhphy speaks to you without any language as you can see below.

Ieva was born in Latvia and after studying in Riga and Denmark she came to Germany where she is living and working since. Her photography transports so much feeling and has almost a tactile character, that I adore.
Her blog and portfolio are really worth a visit. I especially enjoyed her polaroid album.
Her work is also available here or by contacting her.
