Bootcamp – Jelly pattern


I showed you my Jelly-sketches for Bootcamp March lately. Remember? Today I have my final submission for you. The assignment was to illustrate a Jelly themed pattern. As I’m working like 90% for the kids market I thought the pattern should fit somehow. Hope you like it.
And as all the Bootcamp-illustrations: it’s available for licensing ;)

Ship ahoy

Hello pirate fans, since last week you can buy my new book, you could already get a glimps of the cover in my working space post last year. Nine funny pirate stories with also some interesting information about the real pirate life long ago to read to little pirates between 3 and 7 years. Unfortunately you can only get in in german, but take a look at my illustrations, I had a lot of fun drawing these toothless guys. – Veryvera

Food inspiration – Gelato

Its spring time and I would like to have ice cream! Have a good day!


Tuesdays I draw what I eat – A salad with orange

The highlight of today´s lunch was a salad, a normal one. So it was not such a big highlight. Read more…


Singing through the seasons

James Geier is a musician. He writes and sings beautiful songs for adults (listen to them in his webpage) and he has recently published a CD for children: a trip through the year in „James singt für Kinder„, Read more…

Food inspiration – Arancia

Today is my food inspiration day and I was inspired by the sicilian oranges that are in my kitchen. The sun is shining, its getting spring time and I like to sit in my garden, watching the flowers and listing to the birds. This art work shows my work in progress.


Tuesdays I draw what I eat – Maultaschen tikka masala

It is said that maultaschen were invented in this part of Germany where I live as a trick to eat meat on Fridays by hiding it in these sort of huge ravioli (my excuses here to any Swabian reading this). Read more…

The final ABC-Poster




I took me soooo long to finish this ABC-Poster. I started drawing the alphabet last July! Every Tuesday one letter. Than I illustrated some of them again, because I really wanted the poster to work in English AND German. But of course, that came to my mind a little late ;)
Anyway, here’s the finished poster. I’ll get it printed and may be I’ll do some postcards too so I have some promotion material that I can use for mailings to publishers and licensees. Cross your fingers someone likes to print it!

Jelly sketches.

I just love Lillas bootcamp assignments and ideas that she comes up with. I am actually not really a fan of Jelly, but it is so much fun to draw it. All those colors! Yay. These are my latest sketches (above). I’ll be back with more Jelly ;)


Great Photoshop brushes!!


Monday’s Specialities

Good morning, seem to be italian weeks at my place, today I invite you to my special caprese salad recipe. Normally I find caprese salad – even in restaurants – quite boring. My style is to put some more spices between the layers of tomato and mozarella and my favourite friend nearly on top is the green onion. Well, raw onions are not for everybody but I just LOVE them…!


Just some pretzel sticks

As I am sick these days, I have not a lot to offer but pretzel sticks. I hope you don’t mind ;)

Food inspiration – Langustino


Tuesdays I draw what I eat – Mexican tortillas

For most of the people it would be enough if I say tortillas: everybody thinks of Mexican tortilla. But being a Spaniard myself I consider the Spanish tortilla to be the „real tortilla“. Of course. Read more…


Monday’s Specialities

Hello Monday! Have a fresh start in the week with spaghetti with lemon sauce for lunch! This recipe I got years ago from a good friend and this always helps me out when I have nothing in my fridge but a poor lemon. (Olives and onions I always have, parsley is in my freezer, this is part of my basic kitchen equipment!)
