New in: Summer Nights, Daydreams Postcard book & Coloriage Wild

Unlike many colorists I know, I’m not a collector of coloring books. I do love to collect art supplies and can never pass any stationery store without getting in and buying stuff I strongly feel like needing.. 🙂 But I’m not a fan of collecting books. I even gave a whole bunch of books to a child I know and luckily she loves them 🙂 So I only have about 20 or so – because I’m picky. There are way too many books out there that I don’t like. So when I tell you today that I bought three books at once – you know, I must really admire them!

Do I really need expensive equipment?

I’ve come across this question several times during the recent years. When I started coloring, I asked it myself and later, when I posted my first step by step videos or tutorials, people started to ask me which pencils I’d use for that – and some were kinda disappointed when I said I’m using Prismacolor or Polychromos, which are definitely some of the most expensive ones you can get. So there was always this question popping up: will I be able to receive the same result with cheaper stuff?

The bad news is: you will most likely be not.

Hide your outlines! – A comparison of different supplies

Hello folks!

When I posted  my most recently finished double spread from Hanna Karlzon’s Själsfränder on Instagram, I received several comments and messages about how I covered the black outlines with those light colors I used for the blossoms. Actually, ist quite easy – but be careful, it can end up in being a lot of work… 🙂 The key to this is using a white marker or gel pen beforehand – and I thought I’d show you which supplies I use or have used for that and which work best for me. So here’s my little comparison!
