Haven’t been very active here lately, as I’ve been working on a book, and then another book (and will be for the foreseeable future). But I do take the odd work in progress-picture now and then, along with a lot of pictures of the cats, over here: http://instagram.com/groeneinkt

Some bits from a new cover for an old book.
Pro-tip: don’t include text in the illustration for a cover, unless you want to revise it every time it gets published in a different country.

Some cold winter’s night music for you guys.

It’s been a bit quiet over here as I look for some new contributors, but here’s some music I’ve been listening to lately while I work on a book for next year’s holiday season (how very appropriate right now, don’t you think?).
In the mean time; if you’re an illustrator who isn’t hesitant about sharing what you like to listen to, do get in touch.
(the picture above is from my work for Marks & Spencer’s 2013 christmas products)

Just setting the mood here.

I play Sufjan Stevens’ christmas songs to death every winter, by which I mean; if I don’t stop playing them my wife generally wants to murder me to death after a while. However I can’t imagine christmas without his songs anymore, Sufjan gets something so right about the feeling of that period of the year.
