Back to reality

Hey guys. Camping wasn’t great, but I survived. I’m reading Jane Eyre, 450 pages, right now, which is why you haven’t heard from me since before the trip. Sorry! I promise to be up and running as soon as I can put down the book for like a second. My literature class is very interesting to say the least. Here’s an old art piece to console you. “Puppy” from 2011 I believe. Talk to you soon.

New stuff – minimalistic designs?

So, I’m treading lightly ahead with both my photography and my illustration. I never know exactly what to draw or take a photo of – but I always get something worthwhile in the end. I guess what I’m saying is: life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get. And art is the same, I suppose. The outcome is never foreseen. Anyhow, these are 2 small sketches I did late last night. They are both based on photos, one random one from Google and the bird one is based on a photo I took myself. Tell me what you think! They obviously need working on, they’re very simple. But like the deer, they’re simplistic/minimalistic in design which I believe there’s a market for. Tattoos, prints on shirts, mugs, bags? Who knows what the future holds? /Angelimate

Midsummer’s Eve

It’s here, it’s here! MIDSOMMAR! Some people would argue that June 6th is Sweden’s National day, but I must insist we Swedes like THIS holiday much better. And trust me – it’s nothing like in the movie. (Or is it..?)

I have some future plans I’m excited to share with you soon, so hold on tight. By the way, I have a Pinterest. I post a lot of unique stuff that haven’t reached my Facebook page nor my website yet. Here’s the link: https://www.pinterest.se/angelimatebusiness/

Oh, and you did know I have a Facebook page, right? That’s the way you’ll reach me the quickest with your questions or business proposals. Here’s THAT link: https://www.facebook.com/Angelimate/

Have a great day/evening/night!

Website launch & OhhDeer competition!

Hello everyone and welcome!

Wow, I can’t believe I have my own domain and finally launched the website. I have some things to work on of course. I just wanted to get my name out there first and foremost. Now I can focus on making the site the best it can possibly be. I’m SO excited! Thank you very much for being here with me on this ride!

ALSO! I entered a design competition held by the company OhhDeer today. I’m posting the result of my design in this blog post. Tell me what you think! I don’t expect to win, but who knows! I went for a simplistic feel and had fun with their brand name “OhhDeer”. Our job was to create a design for their subscription boxes. I decided to design the smaller one.

Good bye Wix, hello WordPress!

Hello again, fellow artists and those interested in the arts. (Because I’m guessing that’s why you’re here after all..) A short blog post for you now as I’m soon heading to bed. I’m launching this website tomorrow (June 18th) and I’m looking forward to it. Having my own domain – it’s crazy! Is it not? I feel totally whacko over here. Nervous and anxious everything that comes with those feelings. But also super excited. I would love to promote my website and my art on Facebook through their ads again, but truth be told I’m not really “there” yet financially. It ruined me to have to pay 200 SEK the other month because I actually hadn’t got my money from student loans yet. Well, enough of that sob story.. We are all in financial crisis now, I suppose. It wasn’t the best time to graduate from uni, to be honest with you.

I wanted to tell you that when I had a birthday at the beginning of the month, I actually got a Wacom Intuos (small one with bluetooth) so I can evolve my artistry. I’m already much better at digital illustration and can handle brushes much easier. So, it was a great gift. Thanks to the person who bought it for me! My point is, I’ll hopefully have more digital illustrations for you, finished ones I should add, than I had with the other website. So.. New website with my own domain, an actual tablet and pen for digital painting and.. Now the only thing missing is the store itself. Which will come eventually. This is just my 2nd month of doing this, so I’m taking things slow. I’m also taking a class in literature right now, until August 16th. So I’m not 100% free anymore. Despite this, I will work hard towards this goal and I will not let you down.

P.S. I moved my old blog posts over from Wix to WordPress so both you and I can keep track of my progress with this business. Thanks for being here!
