Today i would like to announce that i will close my etsy shop this saturday (may 18th, 8pm cest) for a while because of too much work and because i need more time to create new artworks and products for my shop.
so if you want to buy something, you should do it before the end of saturday. these 3 portraits are still available as a set of giclée prints. besides other pieces, of course. ☺

finally i managed to enter a piece for the #drawthisinyourstyle challenge. a lot of you asked me to do that, but until now i didn't have enough time, and i thought it would be too late for this. but it seems this challenge is still going on and i really wanted to do this. also i'm very curious to see your interpretations of my "matcha girl". 😅
the rules are simple:
tag me (@iraville ) and in the picture if you want to enter your version of my illustration, and use the hashtag #iravillematcha. of course your account has to be public if you want to take part. i will post my favourites in my story and in my feed. maybe your piece will be featured! i'm looking forward to see your versions! 😃
do you have any questions?
I made this illustration some time ago for @nobrowpress magazine's 10th anniversary edition book "studio dreams". i totally forgot to post this back then, because the book was published at the same time when the kickstarter campaign for my own book "cozy days" started. 😅
but better late then never.
the book features a lot of great illustrators and their interpretation of "studio dreams".😍
Here is the little jungle painting i did last week (swipe for a few process shots). would you want that as a print? i need new ones, because so much is sold out already. .
i needed a break from social media to concentrate more on my work. i'm doing lots of experiments at the moment. not without failures. while that's the purpose, i don't wanna share eveything. i hope you don't mind!😅
happy easter (for those who celebrate it)!
Thumbnailing and using my selfmade inks.
made with turmeric and safflower, red beet roots, avocado pits, black walnuts and indigo...still experimenting... 💪
also made ink from copper, charcoal and espresso and tried making some blue from black beans (but failed)
i might do a more into depth post with my selfmade inks once i have a bit more experience in making them. let me know in the comments if that would be something of interest for you and if you have other ideas recommendations for making ink. maybe someone has some tip to make ink from black beans? 😅
Still busy with packing prints. maybe i need to close my shop (link in bio) again for some time to have more time for painting and drawing again 😅
also i need time to do some new prints, because so many are sold.
one new interior illustrationt is already in progress, but because of all the orders and work it needed to wait a bit. but i'lll show you a bit more progress shots here soon. so stay tuned.

What happened to instagram? this post was shown without the text i had written ... so i had to repost it:
yes, i am still alive. 😅
it's only that so many guys of you bought so much from my shop since i re-opened it, that i just hadn't any time for drawing or painting inbetween. 😉
you made me so happy with all your support, and packing your orders and writing the little "thank you" notes is one of my favourite things to do ❤. i know many prints are already sold out, and some are almost sold, but there are still some in stock. and remember, almost all of my prints are limited and numbered fine art giclée prints. once they are sold, they won't be restocked.
these two van prints are still available.😃 ⬆link to my shop in my bio⬆
