I left my own shop website for etsy

I launched my shop in March of this year (2022, in case anyone reads it in another year!). I had no real idea of what to expect in terms of sales, and thus, costs. Some time before my launch, etsy announced that they were about to increase their fees. I saw a lot of artists being (rightfully) in disagreement with this…

draw a peaceful spring scenery with me

Spring 2022 has been a pretty good time for me illustration-wise: I felt I improved my digital art and illustration skills (as I was telling you here) and I created several illustrations I am proud of and I have a lot of fun with.This spring rainy day illustration is one of them. I recorded the process – except for the sketching…

How to make stickers by hand – without a cutting machine

Little note before we start: this method might not suit to your needs, depending on your abilities, health, and how many stickers you need to make. In other words, it unfortunately isn’t fully accessible. It also works only for die cut stickers. What you’ll need sticker paper – I recommend vinyl sticker paper because it’s more qualitative than standard sticker papergood…

Feeling like growing as an artist | Chatty draw with me

A few weeks ago, I uploaded a chatty draw with me in which I’m talking a bit about the feeling you have sometimes when you’re growing as an artist, and I thought I could develop my thoughts in a blog post – so here I am! A bit of context I started digital art almost two years ago, at the end…

International Workers Day

Today is International Workers Day, and I wanted to share a bit about the history of Worker’s Day in France as a way to wish a very good Worker’s Day to all of you! It’s also for me a way to get more political. Because even though I want to keep my content about art, sometimes I feel the need to…

I ordered some new polychromos color pencils this month and was very excited to use them in my shetchbook, even more with cat and frog besties characters!I ordered backups for two of my favorite colors, earth green (#172) and dark naples ochre (#184). They have be my go-to’s regarding sketchbook colored works with the cobalt green (#156), the coral (#131) and…

Artists, make your work online more accessible!

I am well aware that being a freelance artist is, in fact, doing several jobs at the same time, and that, thus, time and energy tend to lack. As a chronically ill, disabed freelance artist, I know it all too well.While most of us would probably love to spend less time managing our social media and online presence, and more time…

Drawing a Cute Character for Early Spring

In early January I drew a cute magpie picking poppies in my sketchbook. I wanted to redraw it digitally, using Clip Studio Paint, and make it more springy by using more saturated colors than on my sketchbook – especially the red of the flowers. However, I still wanted it to remind us early spring, when it’s still pretty chilly outside. This…

Art Supplies and Accessibility

I have a chronic illness that affects my joints and makes me have chronic pain and fatigue among other. As art became more and more important in my daily life, I developped strategies to make art more accessible. I want to share with you today how I have been doing it thanks to art supply choices. This past year and a…
