Mmm… Yummy

I love hedgehogs, they are so silly and adorable. Ever since I rescued one I have been fascinated with them!

The hedgehog we had just couldn’t get over how yummy cat food was and every time he it ate he would make the cutest sounds.

I decided to do a small illustration that was inspired by the love he had for dry cat food.

 

And here is the final result!

Dommelplantsoen

Decided to go to a park, never been to one since I moved to the Netherlands…

      

That’s just some of the photos I took, can’t say they are that great :p

Home made ginger ale syrup

Here is a recipe on ginger ale syrup (I saw it on youtube and tweaked it a bit :))

Ingredients

  • 150 g of fresh ginger
  • 150 g of brown sugar (add more if you want it sweeter)
  • 30 g of honey (add more if you want it sweeter)
  • 8 cloves
  • around 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (you can use 2 sticks instead)
  • 50 ml of lemon juice
  • 600 ml of water

1. Clean the ginger, peel it, and finely chop it in a food processor.

2. Put the chopped ginger, sugar, honey, cloves, cinnamon and water in a pot.

3. Cook it on low for about 25 min. It should only simmer not boil.

4. When it’s done cooking leave it to cool (you can also put the pot in ice cold water to make it cool faster).

5. When it’s cooled strain the liquid through a mesh strainer (squeeze as much liquid from the pulp as you can) and discard the ginger and cloves/cinnamon sticks (if you want you can leave a bit of the ginger pulp in the syrup).

6. Add lemon juice to the syrup and stir.

7. Mix with carbonated water or beer.

Enjoy!

Water experiment

I was experimenting with water, CD and light…

                    

It was ok, wasn’t anything spectacular until I noticed one thing Oo…

It looks right Mickey Mouse 😮 … I did the same with the glitter photos but this one is by far my favorite.

Here are the other 2.

    

Summer Light

I decided to do a series of art nouveau inspired drawings (planing on 4 but I have no idea when/if I’ll ever do those last 2).

Same as before I made a sketch (reference).

        

I finished the sketch, made the final line art and started to color it it.

And there it is finished. I gotta say I liked the previous one better but oh well.
