Hello all. :wave:

Feels like I’m totally neglecting these journals but it’s hard to find relevant things to say sometimes. I’m not the type to have entertaining stories about my fast-going life (especially since my life is neither fast-going nor very entertaining).

I just thought I’d give you a small update on things, just to show I’m still alive and kicking, sort of ;) (Also because there’s not that much to do at work today but, shush, don’t tell anyone – I think my boss might have telepathic powers.)

One drawing was uploaded this January, something I’d started last August or so before I hit the wall of Angst and Depression for a couple of months. :depressed: Contrary to belief it’s not a hard wall, it’s an incredibly soft and fluffy wall with a personal gravity field that sucks you in as if slurping spaghetti, making it very hard to get out of there. I almost chewed my arm off in pure desperation. (I was first aiming for one of my ears but it proved too difficult to reach)
 Now, where was I? Oh, right…. And lo and behold, I’m in the middle of the next drawing already. Sing hallelujah! This is high speed production this! It’s also a piece I started preparing for last summer. (Vacation usually gives me time and energy to dream up new stuff, start a few sketches and make reference photographs if needed.)

I am however experiencing some tiresome difficulties at the moment. The background is giving me a first class headache (much more than usual that is) and I am definitely not getting along with the paper. Or is it the paper not getting along with me perhaps? The big drawing pad I’ve had for several years is all but used up and I’m having a hard time finding a good replacement, if not “successor”. Either the paper is too grainy, too thick, too thin… And recently, weirdly enough, not enough grain. It’s not the sort of thing you realise until you have to deal with it but paper matters. And a lot, it seems. Hmmm…., who knew, eh? *scratches imaginary beard with a thoughtful expression*

I am not one for giving up though. At least when it comes to art. I am too pedantic and too much of a control freak to walk away from a half finished drawing. The irksome background will be sorted out, once I erase the first one of course, and if we cross our fingers we might have a new upload somewhere in the first half of March. :fingerscrossed: 

But it takes time to finish things, unfortunately. Things are not quite the same since the accident. A stupid accident at the gym two years ago left me with a pulled thigh muscle. That led to unexpected complications (whatever those complications may be) so I am still having a lot of problems with pain on a daily basis. So…. Yeah… it’s hard to sit still any length of time. 

*coughs* Still… Despite injuries and an energy-sucking vampire of a job I have a lot to cross off from this year’s to-do list. Trust me, the back log of planned stuff is at least a mile long. More drawings, watercolours, acrylic paintings… There’s even plans for trying out 3D-art! :faint: If only the day had more hours!!! *cries in frustration*

I need a clone. If someone could point me to a good Clone Factory I’d be grateful. (Legal or illegal doesn't really matter, as long as I don't have to pay for it with an arm or a leg or so)

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Eating: Anything but food
  • Drinking: Hot tea!

I'm a vertically challenged oddball from the (seasonally) frozen North with a slightly mad passion for art...

To create is to live and I live to create, entertaining myself and hopefully a few of you as well. :XD:

This is totally a random thing but I just had to...

Have you ever heard or seen THIS?… 
Warning! Flashing cartoon and neon lights and anime charachters included. Cover your eyes! :XD:

I know it's already a quite "old" thing but that song is SWEDISH and the band is from Sweden. And this song and different dancing anime characters have become a REALLY popular theme (or more likely a meme) in internet. And now it's playing in my head again and again...

What you Swedes will do next? ;)

First off... Are you trying to punish me for something? If I'd like to tortue someone I'd probably choose a song and a video like that. 

It probably is a bit old, yeah, though I have no idea from when. The techno/dance type of music isn't my style so don't come across it very often. Thank the gods for that if people are making stupid tuff like this. :XD:

I'm embarrassed on behalf of my countrymen. :giggle:

Thousand humble pardons for making you to suffer this. :XD:

I have to admit that it has a catching beat.

My pleasure. :)

You have a very good collection of drawings here, not to mention the wonderful blend of colors you put on your paintings. Looking forward to see more from you :)
Loulin Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks. Always happy to hear someone likes my stuff (even the the paintings, as I'm not always that comfortable with colours ;P )  
I'm not the fastest artist there is. Real Life tends to get in the way a lot. But I hope I can continue to deliver really good stuff with future uploads.

Birthday wishes from here too (och klara vappen :XD:)

Vi finnarna kan tala mycket bra svenska, eller hur?  Post Above  ;P :D LOL   
Loulin Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Kiitos, Panu. 

Very good indeed. If only I knew what "klara vappen" meant it'd be even greater :XD:
DeepWoodian Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

"Klara vappen" is not proper Svedish (like you noticed :D) but a "twist" translation used by us Finns.

The origin of the saying comes from "Hyvää Vappua".   ("Ha den bra första maj/Valborg")

From there we twisted it to be "Glada Vappen".   ("Glada Valborg för alla")

And once more to "Klara Vappen".   ("Klara Valborg")

This is a hunorous way to say this wish to somebody as it basically means "Have a sober first of May". :XD:
Hopefully you get something out of my explanations as my Swedish is more than a little rusted.
