Another lovely brief all the way from Melbourne this time! This was a present from Nina to her husband Todd on his 40th birthday from which was just a couple of days ago!!

The family loves nothing more than an outing on their bikes in the countryside, and this is what I was out to capture in this illustration.

As ever, I was provided with images and details of clothes and bikes to make the drawing as true to nature as possible – including the kids’ favourite toy in their backpack/ basket.

There is a little nod to our family’s origin in Nina’s basket too, as they head off to the beach, with some factor 50 of course… 😉

The background is a gorgeous handmade paper in shades of gold on a sky blue turquoise which to me really fitted the joy and freedom of the great outdoors…

Karuski is the nom de pencil for me, Katherine Mengardon - I am a fan of all things 1960s, CAKES, obscure indie pop bands, children illustrations, bad puns and cats. Any spare time goes towards baking mad cakes, drawing families and catified musicians. Find me here too:
