Hey dearies, how are you? For this week’s news, I wish to show you two recent pieces of artwork, and some ideas for goodies. I love sweets and warm beverages, which have inspired me lately. As you saw in latest posts, I have been inspired by tea and pralines – now I went with cakes and hot chocolate!
The first one was inspired by Alice in Wonderland (Alice in Sweetsland now? ; ). I recently ordered some coloured Pentel brushes and Faber Castell Pitt liners, which I tried out on this illustration as soon as I got all of them, then combined it with my usual Copic markers. I have been using Dalbe 120g paper which I mostly use for all my illustrations – just for information, since there were people asking for my favourite material.
As for the second work, I drew it after going to the Chocolate House in Luxembourg, a place which offers various cakes and chocolate sticks to melt in a mug. There are so many flavours, like chocolate sticks with fruits, tiramisu, sweets… If you haven’t been there yet and if you love chocolate, I recommend you pay it a visit!

Those latest illustrations also inspired me for new goodies for upcoming conventions. I have been thinking about mugs, as well as tin boxes. Those ideas came to me while I was rearranging my tea corner in my room where I keep on accumulating big tea bags, and I thought it would be much neater to have elegant tin boxes to store the leaves. Since I also love drinking tea in pretty mugs, the idea came to me at the same time.
I am currently looking into potential manufacturers to see whether I could get an affordable price for it. My biggest concern though is being able to carry those goodies without breaking them during transportation. I’ll see how it turns out, and keep you updated!
Anyways, let me know your thoughts in a comment!
Would you be interested in mugs or tea boxes?
Are there any other goodies you would like to see?
Thank you : D
