South Africa

I'm Grethe, from a sleepy hollow of a town way down there in sunny South Africa... :sun:

Although I've been drawing just about my whole life, I studied a three-year degree course in graphic design and photography and obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design in 2008.
Currently, I work as a professional photographer and image retoucher as well as a professional illustrator on a freelance basis, and on contract for a local publisher.
My illustration clients include Benedic Books and Media, the South African Air Force's National Display Team- The Silver Falcons, and the Albatross Disaster Fund.

I love the colours orange, pink, red, purple, white, blue, yellow and silver, TEA, cats, ducks, aviation (especially military- fighter jets <3) sleeping late, making music and indulging in awesome/nerdery...

Personal Quote: FOKKEN JA!!!


"Helmeted valkyries came down from the sky
—the noise of spears grew loud—they protected the prince;
then said Sigrun—the wound-giving valkyries flew,
the troll-woman's mount was feasting on the fodder of ravens..."

Man Beast. by GretheFenyx
Man Beast.
I've really been feeling these black and white speedpaintings lately, so here's one I drew of Phil. Once every few years I attempt to draw this man's face and this is the first one I'm really proud of, I'd say. 
(For those who don't know by now, it's my boyfriend - the man formerly known as psyclone, who now only goes by Phil. <333 )

DeviantART changed its branding and all I see are people bitching and moaning about their pageviews and diminishing popularity. Guess it didn't change that much after all.
