For those of you who don't know, I do freelance illustration, and have created a separate account for my illustration work, as its a different direction than my tattooing. Thank for taking a look! . . Posted @withrepost • @hannasandstromillustration I've been spending a lot of time contemplating my direction lately. I have been doing freelance illustration since I was 17 years old, in 1997, and it has always been from pure passion. As I've been trying to streamline my work, the one thing that I keep returning to, and genuinely want to draw, are the things I love in my everyday life. And for me, what has always made me truly happy is being outside. Wether it's a walk in the woods, surfing, snowboarding, fishing, playing on the beach, swimming, exploring, or just taking a moment to smell the air and feel the sun on my face and the wind in my hair. Nothing grounds me, calms me, reenergizes me, gives me belly butterflies, and stokes me more than nature. . I will be creating a series of illustrations based around this concept, to try to express how truly important these elements are. And hopefully you will all enjoy the process! .
