This horned owl was drawn a long time ago for my poster class along with the skating giraffe. The task was to create an impossible animal. Owls are beautiful birds. They also look very serious and literature presents them as such. When you look at their faces, though, their big eyes make them a bit funny, too. And as I was in love with owls then (and still am), this idea came to my mind very quickly. I had called the creature a viking owl then because of the viking helmets with horns. Later I created art prints and products with this funny cartoon bird. The poster was even featured at Zazzle as a product of the day. Continue reading Horned owl illustration and products
This Andean condor was drawn for a compilation of songs in the style Huayno. It is a collaborative name for the traditional songs of the countries in South America – Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, played especially by the Quechua people there. I designed a music cover for songs like these some time ago. I wanted to create a design which resembles the style of Andean textiles. They’re beautiful, geometric, bright. I wanted it to be modern yet to have the spirit of native South American art. Birds, especially condors, sun were motives which I saw in most of the textiles there. And I listened to this kind of music then to get in the mood. Loved it, actually. So I decided to draw a geometric condor with wide spread wings flying in from of a big yellow sun.

This funny snake was drawn a long time ago when I was sketching ideas for my portfolio site. Finished just the artwork and made art print out of the swirling reptiles instead of making the site. All of the snakes have very sharp teeth and they are eyeless except for the center one. You can tell it is in love by its heart-shaped glasses, heh. I love to draw this kind of shapes. They frequently turn out to be reptilian or flowers with just teeth coming out of their mouths and this one is a great example. I’ll draw something like this with watercolors in the near future.

These love cats hug each other with their tails. It’s a cute illustration of a black and white cat which I’ve drawn some time ago. I had a project for a music cover of love songs compilation back then. Being a cat lover myself, this is what I came up with. Later I created lots of products with these cute kitties, too. I particularly like how they look on red, blue and pink background. So these are the colors I chose for the products. Continue reading Cute Hugging Love Cats
This teddy bear pattern features a digital illustration of a cute teddy bear holding a heart. I drew the fluffy teddy a long time ago inspired by a toy my husband (then boyfriend) gave me as a gift.

This dinosaur soccer illustration features a cartoon dinosaur who loves to play soccer. It stands there with its cute big eyes, preparing to kick the ball. This is a kids’ sports design. I drew this cute T-Rex a long time ago while doodling with my oldest daughter. She was about 2 years old then. I used to put a large sheet of paper on the floor and we both drew everywhere on it with color pencils. Later we drew this way with my second daughter. I just started this fun activity with my youngest daughter, too. It’s just that we are four artists now. And the kids have a lot more precious ideas than me, actually. 🙂

This cartoon fox lives happily in the land of geometric shapes. Whatever happens, it is always strong and happy. It has that curious look in its eyes. Wants to know everything about everything. This cute origami animal started its life as… an origami, what a surprise. I love origami. I like how only using paper, one can recreate flowers animals and more. No distinct marks on the paper are need. It’s only form. Origami are very beautiful abstractions. Continue reading Cute Origami Cartoon Fox
This cute cartoon whale smiles while swimming happily in the ocean. Instead of water, it splashes colorful swirls in blue, orange and yellow color. I’ve first drawn the bright swirls as a part of another design which I applied for a job with. In it the colorful swirls were coming out of a champagne glass. I made a number of music cover designs with that employer and I was very happy with our cooperative work. Then I decided to stop working on other projects, just to focus on my personal illustrations. Anyway… Continue reading Happy Cartoon Whale Illustration
This evil black cat has glowing eyes and beautifully curled tail. It is a vector illustration with a grunge textured background in a varied color – purple, red, blue, sometimes light green. Black kitties are beautiful, though sometimes evil, as are all cats in general. I love them. This is a design for all the cat lovers out there who also like darker stuff.
