Everyday Coffee Beans. Smart and strong

I’m a real coffee lover, I drink it in the morning, at noon and in the evening right before I go to bed. And I sleep pretty well as well. Some people don’t. But I belong to the people who do not get much affected by caffeine and become hyper awake. I love drinking coffee at home, and recently I started buying coffee beans only, which I grind myself. I do this in the shops because it’s easier. Finally I realized that fresh grind coffee smells and tastes so much better. I first became a coffee drinker in my early twenties, and had to have sugar, cinnamon and milk in it, because I disliked the smell and taste. With these ingredients I could endure it. Nowadays I’m fine with milk only. I also love drinking coffee at cafés, where cafe latte is the favorite. But sometimes you also got to add some variations and try some of the other coffee beverages. It’s also nice here in Copenhagen, with all the cafés to go to. Health Drinking coffee is also very beneficial for your health. I did not always know or believe that. But today I think it’s true. It can make you smarter, burn fat, improve physical performance and make you more awake. Ha – the last one doesn’t count me. The best in life tends to be the small things that make your days better. Coffee belongs to these small pleasures in my world. Coffee Quotes of Smiles A little research on coffee related quotes, quickly reveals the stereotypes or truth about coffee. ‘Keeping you wake’ and ‘life is too short for bad coffee.’ And this one by David Letterman, which is new to me: ‘“If it wasn’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever. “ Did I mention I also love to illustrate people drinking coffee along with many other topics.

Maintenance – freshening up the site a little with new structure, look, and feel. Not quite finished yet, but it’s possible to have a look around a see a good portion of everything. The site had grown out of it’s design, and become a little messy, because it wasn’t planed enough from the start. Also the former structure was made out of a one-page template, as I thought it was a good idea to place all content on the front page. Lately I found that this is not working anymore, and as my business is divided into design and illustration, it is quite easy to put that into a more planed presentation – jobs plus illustration. And just found this animated gif from last year.

It’s mine ☝️

Situations from doing some errands On my way to do errands, an elderly well dressed man, made eye contact and said something I couldn’t hear. So I thought he was asking for money. He repeated what he said and begged me to come with him, because he was finite. I got shocked, and said I was sorry, but didn’t have time to help him. I hurried on to the shop, and wasn’t quite ok with turning a man down in such a condition. When I pulled my number in the store, a women put out her hand and said it was hers. She had forgot to pull her number, but obvious the one in my hand wasn’t hers. BUT – I gave it to her, and saw it as an opportunity to brush of some of my bad feelings not helping the man on the street. Always do good deeds when you can – and YES, you can!

Hi guys! I have been participating in #illustratewithus a weekly challenge by @aeldrawas_ and @denacooperillustration on Instagram. It’s a super fine way to get in touch with other illustrators and it’s also fun to see different interpretations of the same subject. I’ve been in for the last three weeks and the photos are so fine and the models are chick and beautiful. It’s better to draw together than alone! If you want to take part, jump over to Alessia Landi’s blog and read the guide lines. Here is my illustration from the first week, you can see the others here #illustratewithus. Best, Susanne

Fendi & me

Fendi and me is the news I got for you. Yes, they made such a fine re-post on Instagram of an illustration I made of their fall-winter2016 collection. How wonderful is that!!! And as you may know Fendi is 90 years this year, and celebrated it with a spectacular fashion show at the Trevi Fountain, where they launched the Legends & Fairy Tales collection. They have also made such an adorable exhibition, I have seen so many cool pictures of this on Instagram. It looks like a pop-futuristic world in real life. I want to see it :)) You can see my illustration on Instagram here. And you can also see more of my fashion – lifestyle illustrations in watercolor here. Best, Susanne!

Fashion illustration for blog and social media content+

A new service is up:)) I got a good start on this new project, as I was lucky to have Inma Rocamora Ruiz from Natural Elegance Fashion Blog, as my model, collaborator and ambassador! Illustration has become extremely popular on social media. And Instagram has highly contributed to the growth and demand for artistic images.   So why not use them on fashion and lifestyle blogs, too? My illustrations are mostly made in watercolor, which give you the opportunity to hang them on the wall or use them digital on different sites. A tailored illustration is a fine supplement and a great contrast to photographs, which tend to get more and more styled to perfection. Illustration brings back the human touch!   See also the nice post Inma wrote: Natural Elegance Fashion Blog
