First of all, thank you so much for following me. I’m truly grateful for having you around, especially those of you who started following me from my beginnings, a little bit over 2 years ago when I didn’t have any clear direction, style or anything cohesive at all! It means really a lot to me, so THANK YOU ❤
As you may know, I’m educated as a Graphic Designer and have worked with design for almost 18 years now, though I have always been attracted to drawing and painting. I never really felt that I was good enough, or that I could make my living from it, but at the end of 2015 I found myself after many years, standing with out a job, and while I was searching for new job opportunities in the design world, I slowly started up with drawing and painting, and posting on Instagram. I was hooked! Since then, I have being experimenting with all the things I could think of, trying to find the topics I like to work with, different technics and lots of materials! .
Because you have been following me, and because you might have got used to the kind of posts I have made until now, I can now announce, that I’m getting more serious about my illustrations, and I´m very exited about this! Therefore, I will be doing some clean-up on my account and beside posting my usual stuff, I will also be posting some more salesy stuff, so please don’t let that scare you away! .
As a thank you for following me, I will be doing a little give-away on Friday 25th of May 2018. The winner will get to choose one of my works from my Instagram account, and receive a A4 print of it. You can only participate if you started following me last week or earlier, and leave me a comment saying that you want to participate. I will make a post with the name of the lucky winner the 28th may 2018. If you are the lucky winner, I will contact you by a private message to get your contact info, so that I will know where to ship your print 😊 Good luck! .
I also want to let you know, that you may feel free to ask me any kind of questions about me as a new started illustrator, about materials I use or anything else you are wondering about. I’ll be happy to answer. All the best, Marianne .
