The sketchbook is very important in Karin's day-to-day illustration practice, and tends to contain
her observational drawings from wherever she happens to be based in at the time. It is thus an
ever-changing reflection of her surroundings, approached with her typical touch of mischievousness and love for humanity.

She usually takes drawing notes on location; when that is not possible, she takes photos for future references or makes mental notes on the mood that she wanted to capture.

Keeping active in documenting her thoughts and observations is crucial, because it is a chance to let go of expectations and to not feel too precious or attached to the images produced.

Whether keeping a sketchbook, or simply allowing herself time to explore and make mistakes in her drawing and image-making on loose paper, Karin strongly believes that these explorations have the power to convey her personality as an illustrator.
