We recently had a record-breaking snowfall here in Z├╝rich, which also happened to be the first real snow of the season. Unfortunately, I thought my lemon tree would be okay on our covered patio, but after three days of snow, I noticed that the tree was looking really droopy. I brought it inside, but it …

Through the door

This drawing evolved out of some stick-people doodles I did while listening to a lot of language-learning videos. Originally, the birds were inside the cage-dress, kind of like feathery clothing. When I made a second version, I realized that the birds were so trapped and that it would make more sense to free them. Once …

Herb harvest

herbs 02 web

I’ve been harvesting and drying herbs from my garden since early this past summer, and as it’s getting cooler, I’ve ramped up my harvesting to get the most out of my edible plants before frost is upon us. This year’s weather was pretty poor, so a lot of my plants didn’t get the sun they …

In Zurich, there is very little need to own a car because the public transportation system is excellent. We take the train, bus, or tram everywhere, and it also helps keep us healthy when we walk down to the main street to do our grocery shopping. Not having a car means that one needs to …

Under my umbrella

It’s been non-stop rain all summer around here, and ironically, on the one sunny day all week, I end up drawing a girl with an umbrella! I was inspired by the lovely vintage Morton Salt ads, like this one: There’s several iterations of the Morton Salt girl, and they’re all really cute and eye-catching. Since …

I’ve been eating a lot of cupcakes over the past few days, thanks to Cakewrecks.com making me hungry. Then, I saw a photo online of a girl in a layered dress that reminded me of a cake. Basically, I have cake on the brain. And in my mouth. So I drew this today, and found …
