Devaz Sweden by FrederikeLisabet
Devaz Sweden
Okay, as dramatically announced before: Here come the NEWS!
(And I'm gonna start at the beginning, so this might just be a bit longer)

I don't know if I mentioned it, but I've left home at the end of August to go on my personal adventure, 4 months of working on farms all throughout Sweden on short notice. I think I'm pretty much half through this by now and so far I've made a wide range of experiences from uncomfortable to nothing short of amazing (I'll come to that in a second).
So, at the moment I am on my third farm, a tiny place about 200km north of Stockholm. My hosts are incredibly kind and generous people, the husband keeps bees in a sustainable manner not taking as much honey from them as he could and the wife has her own small company of handmade ecological products.

I highly recommend that you check out www.devaz.se - the website can be translated to English and if you're looking for (mostly vegan) ecological high quality skincare products - well, look no more.
Anyway, this is where I come in: As I'm a volunteer farm worker, I expected to be employed as a garden help or something along those lines. I of course have my sketchbook and my watercolors with me a lot, though, so both Susanne and Jos saw my art several times during the first few days. And as it happens they really liked it - in fact they liked it so much that they asked me if I would mind designing logos for both their companies.

To which I calmy replied wtf hell no yes i'd love to
After I did that (pictures of those designs are coming up some time later -they're still lacking the final touch), Susanne asked me to help her make a background design /poster for when her products are going on sale in shops around Sweden. And of course this is the most beautiful thing that could possibly have happened, for heaven's sake I'm making my living by painting right now!
So what you're seeing here is the first sketch for what that poster is going to look like.

This is why I'm adding a watermark and won't be selling prints - sorry.

But eh, yeah, can you believe it? I'm completely out of my depth here, I never expected this chance to arise when I signed up for the job - I'm so thankful and happy and still in a state of disbelief, and I just wanted to share this! 

I'm sorry about the quality of the photograph, there's no decent lighting to be found in this house; )
Thanks for reading!: ))

Thank you for all of you who are still here - I really really appreciate it! And dang, have you seen this new design? Holy cow ey! Soo, I'm still travelling, which is why the lightning sucks,which is why this is in a weird frame and all, but I just wanted to put something up right now. AND there's more to come and also I have big news (the amazing kind!) and there gonna be announced here as soon as I can and aaaah EXCITING!: )))

I just found this widget! I've been looking for it for ages really unsuccessfully and now here it is and I feel extraordinarily stupid..
But hey! If you've made it to this page you're probably a Doctor Who fan and like watercolors a bit and I'm just going to assume that you're pretty lovely and we'll get on just great!(:
Please feel free to talk to me I'm always happy to meet new people!
I'm also a nerdfighter, big into Harry Potter (I'm a Ravenclaw) and the classic fantasy stuff a la Lord of the Rings, Narnia, everything.(:


ALSO PSA: You don't need to thank me for the llamas, I give them if you made something that I liked, and that's that: )

So I logged onto my tumblr this morning just like everyday, still half asleep and got the shock of my life because I've gained like 30 new followers overnight and an INSANE amount of notes. I thought I'd gotten into the wrong account to be honest.. and then I realized that the Official doctorwho tumblr had reblogged a three-months-old painting of mine! The tags they added were too cute and I'm just stunned. So stunned.
My most reblogged work before had like 1.600 notes or something and then, boom, I look at it and I'm at 10.330 and counting, this is unbelievable!
If anyone wants to share the crazy, look here:
 doctorwho.tumblr.com/post/8294…
Meanwhile I'm here in my corner trying to understand what the heck is going on..

Your welcome :D
It was no trouble at all. I just wanted to let you know what a good painter you were. (If it wasn't already obvious XD)
But you must get that all the time.
