When in doubt, adopt a unicon


It's hardly news that I always had a thing for fantasy creatures - dragons, fauns, jackalopes and so on. Could it be because I'm actually an engineer and I need a getaway from all that math&sense of reality? Maybe.. : )

Anyway, unicorns are a long time fav of mine. And of course, as usual, the tinier, the better!

Hope you'll like these little guys. I just picked some of my best pics. Some of these tiny fellows have been adopted already, others are still available in my Etsy shop.

Is anyone looking for a cute Valentine's gift? ^____^

Big hugs,

Mij

Creatures in progress


I realized I didn't post much here during 2016.
I've been creating quite a lot of new figurines, but it's so much
easier and faster to show them on my Instagram account.

Still this blog feels like home, to me, and I don't want to let it die. 
Therefore among my New Year's resolution there is this: 
trying to post at least a couple entries per month and keep
this place more or less up to date with my projects. I really
hope you'll folow me in this journey!

Happy new year everybody! ^___^

Bunch of micro dragons!



Self-explanatory title. ; )
Most of these micro dragons have been adopted already, but there's still one or two available in my Etsy shop

Baby foxes


It's that time of year again. 

Red leaves, first snowfall of the season, cozy blankets, roasted pumpkins and lots of warm coffee to fight back winter's lethargy. And of course it also means it is time for me to sculpt some more tiny foxes. : )





This time I thought I'd share a quick WIP pic too..




Available as usual in my Etsy store. : )

Inspired by ProMarker - Winsor&Newton art challenge


I drew a thing for the Winsor&Newton art challenge on Instagram.
It was a great chance to practice with markers - I have a growing collection of those, but too often I opt for digital coloring, which is not quite as fun. The artwork was inspired by a quite amazing bookstore in Venice (my hometown), which is considered one of the most beautiful and whimsical in the world. Such a dreamy place!

If you like my drawing, please like it here, it would truly mean a lot to me!
And if you are in Venice, don't miss the chance to stop by the unique Acqua Alta bookstore and pet its many cats! 
(also: Acqua Alta means "high tide", so make sure to bring some rubber boots!)




(the picture behind the cat is a miniature version of "The Robing of the Bride" by Max Ernst, a painting that can also be seen in Venice at the Peggy Guggenheim museum)
