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 ;)

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

abc_poster_johanna_fritz

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 ;)

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…!

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!)

Bootcamp February submission

I posted LATELY that Lilla Rogers Bootcamp started and showed you my first sketches for the cuckoo-theme. And then we got the assignment: translate it into a cell phone cover. So much fun and I am truly happy with my outcome…

Cuckoo cell phone case by Johanna Fritz

Well, I had so much fun illustrating cuckoo clocks and other related icons, that I created a pattern:

MATS-Bootcamp started

The most of you know I loved Lilla Rogers ecourse „Make art that sells“ the last year (have a look at my illustrations over HERE). There was so much input. So there was no question that I was excited about the Bootcamp. I signed up and it started last week. The first Mini was to draw cuckoo clocks. These are my sketches above. So happy to do some great pieces for my portfolio again. Lillas assignemts are the best and she knows what’s going on…
