Atelier News

Hello friends,

I hope this finds you happy and healthy!

I know I usually send out the newsletter Wednesday or Thursday, but I worked so hard on some Christmas cards this week, and now that they are done, I just couldn’t wait to share them with you!

For Yule, I made a new series of magical plants cards. It is my selection of 5 plants that have a particular significance for Yule. Once again, it was a realy pleasure to explore the folklore and traditions surrounding these plants and to spend some time on the calligraphy and drawings. I hope you’ll like them too!

New at the boutique

As mentioned above, the 2020 Christmas cards are here!

Inspiration

This week, a recent favourite: Slow Down by Rachel Williams and Freya Hartas. This is such a beautiful book that will please all nature lovers, kids and adults alike.

Head over to the blog for a full review!

Small treat

With Winter coming, I’ve been craving a road trip to see everything. They agree 🙂

Agatha’s Journal, Ink Drawing – Kickstarter Rewards

Agatha's Journal

En français plus bas 🙂

Only a few days left to the official launch of my Kickstarter campaign! I cannot believe how fast time as gone while I was working on this project. It’s very exciting and a bit nerve-racking at the same time. This week, I worked on some rewards, so that I can take pictures of the different reward categories and include them to the Kickstarter page.

I wanted to create something magical and fun, and I’m very happy with the result. For the reward, people will receive the original ink drawings, but I think I might make them into prints and cards. I just love their witchy/herbalist/ancient grimoire feel.

It felt so great to be drawing and sketching again after what felt like weeks of computer work! It was so interesting to dive into the magical side of common plants and to research the different superstitions and rituals that surround them. Fascinating!

This blog post is one in a series I’m writing about my book, Agatha’s Journal.

Dessin Ă  l’encre: RĂ©compenses pour Kickstarter

Il ne reste que quelques jours avant le lancement officiel de ma campagne Kickstarter ! Je n’arrive pas Ă  croire que le temps ait passĂ© aussi vite pendant que je travaillais sur ce projet. C’est très excitant et un peu angoissant en mĂŞme temps. Cette semaine, j’ai travaillĂ© sur certaines rĂ©compenses, afin de pouvoir prendre des photos des diffĂ©rentes catĂ©gories de rĂ©compenses et les inclure Ă  la page Kickstarter.

Je voulais crĂ©er quelque chose de magique et d’amusant, et je suis très satisfaite du rĂ©sultat. Pour la rĂ©compense, les gens recevront les dessins Ă  l’encre originaux, mais je pense que je pourrais les transformer en tirages et en cartes. J’adore leur aspect sorcière-herboriste-grimoire antique.

C’Ă©tait tellement agrĂ©able de pouvoir dessiner Ă  nouveau après ce qui a semblĂ© ĂŞtre des semaines de travail Ă  l’ordinateur ! C’Ă©tait tellement intĂ©ressant de plonger dans le cĂ´tĂ© magique des plantes communes et de faire des recherches sur les diffĂ©rentes superstitions et rituels qui les entourent. Fascinant !

Cet article fait partie de la sĂ©rie consacrĂ©e Ă  mon livre: Le Journal d’Agatha
