ME AND MY BROKEN HEART
This is actually an old illustration, but I have decided to put it up for sale because it's one of my favourite ones. I really think the big black arrow that goes through the fragile heart adds some tension to it. I hope you will like it as well.
PS. It was made for a text with a sad theme, so that's why I've always thought of it as a broken heart, but my friend pointed out that it can actually be a lovestruck heart as well, with an arrow of love shot through it. :)
I just sold my first illustration on Society6! Thank you so much and I hope whoever bought it will be pleased with the piece :)
As it turns out I have a new illustration coming up now! This is made from photos with a little painting in Photoshop. It's kinda abstract with two geometric cubes fighting over a third cube that seem to be very important! On the other hand, you could also look at it as if they were about to initiate a dance. This is nevertheless made with a bit of humour in mind, hope you like it! You can now order it for example as a cutting board, poster or even as a coffee table! Go to shop.
BUT FIRST COFFEE
It has been a really cold week in Finland ( -20 degrees Celsius) and I'm not really into cold, so I've been dreaming of warmer places while drinking a lot of hot drinks. (Tea, coffee, chocolate, anything goes.) I guess that's the inspiration for this piece. Unlike Heart of Roots, which is made from photographs, I first drew this in Illustrator and then added texture and effects in Photoshop.
The print is available through Society6. There you'll find it as a regular art print, but you can also get it for example as a phone case or stationery cards! Alright, I think it's time for a cup of hot chocolate, have a nice weekend! :)
INGET FÖRE MIN KOPP KAFFE
Alla som har vistats i Finland den senaste veckan, och kanske i hela Norden, har troligen lagt märke till att det varit en väldigt kall vecka. Många morgnar har mätaren visat på minus tjugo grader. Jag njuter inte så värst mycket av dessa köldknäppar, så jag har slösurfat en del på resor samtidigt som jag blivit en storkonsument av varma drycker.
Jag gissar att det kalla vädret har varit en delorsak som inspirerat till min illustration ovan. Bilden finns nu till salu i Society6. Där hittar du den som en traditionell plansch men också som t.ex. iPhone skal eller kort! Nu tror jag det är dags för en kopp varm choklad, ha en trevlig helg! :)
This illustration had quite a long creation process. It started with a few roots that I dug up and photographed. After that I started playing with them in photoshop and eventually they turned into a heart. I decided to have a simple, one colour background so that the heart would be in the centre of attention.
If you like the illustration you can by it in my newly opened shop at Society6. You can get it as an art print, a pillow, a tote bag and much more. If you decide to buy it I would love to hear your thoughts about it.
My name is Malin. I like to take photos and make illustrations. My aim is to spread feelgood through glimpses of me and my boyfriends trips and travels, spiced with a few illustrations. We are based in Finland and our trips go both near and far. Enjoy! :)
