🕊New series; humans with birds 🕊 〰️〰️〰️〰️ I started this series because of my wish to create more art with a kindly reminder/message; be gentle with the ones who you are sharing our planet with. 🍃🕊🦙🐋 I tried to capture that in a harmonies colorful composition, where both human & bird are just as important. 💙 〰️〰️〰️ #bird #planetearth #illustration #design #payattantion #fortheonearoundyou #color1 maand geleden
💙🌀 Remember the textile printing project with my sister? 🦀🧶 Finally I can share the -first- results and I am sooo happy and proud! Saskia and I screenprinted the whole thing (for the chair it was a 7 meter textile!) and Saskia did all the upholstery 💙 The chair was part of Saskia's exam, due the different kind of techniques. We made the pouf to experiment with the type of furniture we would like to make. @bystudiolouis👭 #collab #sisters #upholstery #textile #furniture #screenprint #printscreen #product #meubelmaker #stofferen #zeefdrukken1 maand geleden
