Illustration Friday: Hair
My hair is still fairly short, but soon, soon it'll be long enough to catch the wind.

Standing still.
Yes, I'm here to complain again, to rant, to waste air, to maybe shake some frustration off my shoulders for a bit.  The thing is, I think I might be doing it wrong.  I think I should probably be doing something else than what I'm doing right now.  But I do...

Illustration Friday: Sailor.
HMS Tjurkö (M53) was a minesweeper: my dad really really REALLY wanted to be a sailor, so he talked the recruiting office into stationing him in the navy.

A depressed middle-aged teenager's personal journal?
You know, I was never the "typical" teenager; I wasn't moody, I wasn't partying all night, I didn't do any of the things teens are supposed to do. Sometimes I'd try though, I'd roll my eyes at my parents, I'd buy posters and CD's and once, just once, I skip...

Finding your own style. Or not.
So ... basically, I'm stuck with my painting. Which is why I haven't been updating the blog, and why I've been keeping myself busy doing doodling challenges - like the alphabet handlettering challeng on IG. It's been fun and lettering is something I've alwa...

Illustration Friday: "Animal"
I know, I keep saying I'll post more but I never do. And I keep saying I'll fix the issue of me not being able to comment on my own blog posts, but I never get around to it. I could do with a good kick in the pants. Oh well, if I keep at it, this slump shal...
