I did this for my friend Lisa’s little baby, who is very cute by the way. The flowers were done with a spirograph at least I think that’s what you call those things. Used to love them when I was a kid so when I came across one recently I was very excited, they’re still super cool.
These are a few of a range of cards I did for Stuff for Africa. On the back it says they were done by a Karen Vermulen. Its not true I did them the e just got lost along the way...

This little dude is one of a few illustrations I did for a book on brandy. I don't like really like brandy even though I'm afrikaans and I think I'm supposed to down brandy and cokes whilst watching the rugby, I don't like rugby either. Anway the book actually won an gourmand award in the drinks category.

These were for an Afrikaans dream dictionary I did for Lapa publishers. I had to illustrate
almost all the letters of the alphabet, just left out the silly ones like q and c that we don’t use
This was actually part of a storyboard but like a lot of advertising ideas it never happened, I still like it though. And it did get me a discount at the super lovely Villa Rivercat in Goa, India. Its a hotel/artist retreat where a picture gets you a discount on a room. If you ever go to Goa do go stay at the Rivercat, its beautiful and let me know if my picture really did make it up on the wall.
