Your 30s – too old for learning to draw?

Ahhh...the 30s. I feel like being in my 30s is like being a teenager again but I get to have enough money to live my dreams. I am unsure if this is the same if you have kids because we do not have them but I feel this is so awesome but also sometimes overwhelming.… Continue reading Your 30s – too old for learning to draw?


Why I will never be able to work on commission

Last week I had a revelation - I can not work with customers. My customer support jobs ruined this for me. On my Instagram,, I received an offer to draw a dog and said to myself I could try. After five minutes, I apologized and refused because I instantly felt my creativity dying. I can… Continue reading Why I will never be able to work on commission


Morning rant

NOT DRINKING COFFEE DURING WINTER TIME IS A B***H! I wanted to start like this, in order to get out all the frustration I am feeling now, on a train station, after a hard morning.

Can you look at yourself long enough to make a self-portrait?

Reblog or Repost? Is There a Difference? (reblog)

Thank you fot this. It was on my mind since last week. I reblog things that are interesting for me, wanting to share them with people, not to steal work..

Recently I was asked by a fellow WordPress blogger to remove my reblog of one of their posts.
