I'm not going to lie guys: I'm really stressed with my book deadline, but so so so so happy the way is turning out. If you're stressed right now or you're going through a creative block, there's nothing like going out and have some fun. On Saturday I visited the Alte NationalGalerie and I drew all afternoon. God damn, it helps! Please give it a go!
I hope you enjoyed my sketches! Please join me on the #drawoutside challenge! :)
Three things you could draw at a coffee shop:
1. Practice human posture. Draw at least 5 people sitting down drinking coffee or talking to another person.
2. Practice clothing. Mastering the art of clothes can be tricky and take some time; draw folded fabric, zippers, coats, sweaters and noticed how people are dressed.
3. Go crazy and draw a monster sitting on a chair talking to a friend.
Don't forget to use #drawoutside and share your drawings with me!
I hope you like this video, have a lovely day :)
Every February the 2nd., many illustrators and comic book artists join in what it's called "Hourly Comic Day" in which you have to draw something (your life or not) every hour. It's like daily vlogging, but live and with comics... if that make any sense.
So, for the first time, I joined. And it was SO COOL! It was intense and fun. Here are some of the drawings I did yesterday, I hope you like it and you can join next year!

Hello my nerds!
Just a little announcement: my Etsy shop will be closed from October 11 till November 30 because I'll be in Chile doing some workshops, panels and book-signing!
So, if you wanna be super organized and prepared, you can start ordering your Christmas gifts today. The last chance to make a purchase before I go is on October 10th.
I know I know, I think is crazy to talk about Christmas in September too, but I figure I tell you all this right now cause I'll be gone all november (which is Christmas-crazy-time for everybody).
My store will be back on business on December 1st. My two fat cats, Ed and I will be working really hard to deliver all your Christmas goodies, even if it takes to go to the post office every day.
Another store related-news: Yesterday I upload new prints and my 2015 calendar is almost finish. Don't worry cause I'm illustrating some Christmas cards!
I think that's it! If you have questions please leave them down below or you can tweet me too!
I hope you're having an amazing (autumny) day :)

Hello my nerds! How's your Monday going so far?
Since a lot of you always ask me about my favorite places here in Berlin, I decided to start a new section on my blog called "Frannerd's Berlin Guide", so next time, if you're here visiting on a holiday with your family or friends, you know where are the nicest places for buying pencils, sketchbooks, my favorite parks or coffee shops, restaurants, and well... you get the idea.
