Kiladeda – Let’s build a REAL farm!

This time I come with a different type of illustration. These are some drawings I made for a project of the association Freunde von Amani Deutschland (of which I am a co-founder since my husband visited the children’s home Amani in Moshi, Tanzania, that we support). Read more…

Virginia’s InkTober

To post a drawing made with ink every day of October, this is the challenge that Jake Parker throws us, illustrators, since 2009. It is called  #inktober and this year I took part in it. It was for sure a challenge, especially in the beginning, where you don´t know which way the series is going to take but it was also a lot of fun and for sure a positive experience I will repeat next year. These are some of my InkTober ladies (and shoes).

Christmas card


Hello Panda!

My daughter is in love with Pandas. She’s totally crazy about them. So I thought: why not illustrating a Panda for her and use it as her dinnerware? You should have seen her face when she saw that plate. She said „PANDAAAA!“ and had the cutest smile on her face :)

Hope you like it too?!
