The publishing house Urania, specialized on a wide variation of card games, published a manga tarot. I got the request to illustrate this deck.

I had to draw all of 78 cards. What a huge amount of work! Mercifully, my ideas didn't run out.^^
By the way, the titles are originally printed in English. The translations are on the left side of the card.

The cards should look like vintage prints. Thus the colour parts are even and partially decorated with patterns. In order to avoid too bright, colorful and mawkish cards, I decided to use only four slightly discreet colours (winered, bottle-green, pale yellow and dark grey-blue) and mixed them and added some pattern.
For the outlines I used a very soft and small pen nib and drew them intensely so that they become more thick. The variation of the thickness of the lines let the drawings look lively and the figures stick out.
I took the style of Kaori Yuki and the ancient eras as examples.

I decided to design the border in Art Deco style. I considered to do it in a baroque or victorian style before, but it would have looked too antiquated, so I let it be. Art Deco was arising about 1910/1920, thus it is characterised by an expressionistic and dynamic form. This style combines the classic, ancient decorations with the modernity.

Did this one for a friend of mine, Jurjen.

He wanted a total black Xbox 360; i partially did what he wanted, heh. I left the power on button white, so when you push it, you connect with 'faith' (which reads on top of the console)

P.S.: forgive me for taking these blurry pictures, the light wouldnt co-op..

I haven't uploaded in a while but I haven't got much time to draw either, so I decided to upload something I made at school on the back of a piece of paper (no lined-paper, yay! ^_~) It's not one of my best drawings and there are many flaws (like, the shape of her head seems a little weird) but I just think it's a cute drawing so I upload it anyway ^_^ Had much discussions with 3 classmates on how the legs should look, I think (hope) they are more or less correct now (though maybe a little short) ^_^

"Growing over my head", I feel really bad at this moment. Things grow over my head and I'm just done with it, I don't want to think about it anymore, but on the same time I can't do anything else. I'm starting to get angry with myself and with others. I just... feel sad.
