Back to blogging

Hello, is there anyone out there?

It’s been quite a while. Something like 1.5 years to be more exact… The last couple of months, I have been dwelling a little about doing this or not.

A huge part of me miss blogging, but I didn’t like the feeling of it being a job that had to be done. It took all the fun away from it to be honest. Also, as I got older, I wanted more privacy for myself, and I still do, but I feel that I am lost when it comes to where and how to share my art. I have been trying to update tumblr, facebook, deviantart etc., but it hasn’t really felt the same. I felt the response I got on my art here was more personal, and I think I preferred this channel over any of the others, as it was easier connecting with my followers.

This blog won’t be so much about my life anymore, as in my personal life. I will continue this blog with some personal stuff, but mainly I will share my way of working towards getting better at design/drawing. I can’t promise there won’t be any travel posts about me going places though, but I will not post and upload things as often as I used to. Maybe once or twice a week.

The last years, I have desperately tried to get better at drawing/painting, but I’ve felt that getting anywhere came to an abrupt stop. I have come to realize that what I really need to do is to sit down and study. Both reading books, looking at tutorials, and looking at color and shape in real life. If not, I’ll just be stuck at the same level. I think my art came to reach a peek at what I could draw by my imagination, whereas now I see that I have to actually study to be able to draw what I actually imagine in my head.

Photography has stood still for a while… I’m hoping to get back into it, but it seems to be a bit difficult since my hands are already full of drawing/painting and my son.


My son and I

Yupp, I had a kid 9 months ago. Weirdly enough, that made me start working harder with getting somewhere with what I am doing. Having a child changed me in many ways, I guess. It made me see other sides of life that is fantastic, and it also made me really appreciate what it means to have time do what you really want- which is now after kiddo has gone to bed. 2-3 hours per evening in other words.

Anyway, enough of this wall of text. I’ll throw in a recent work in progress I’ve done of Odindsbarns.

This is the end

Of the blogging at least.

I’ve decided to stop blogging and writing about my pictures, journeys etc. I have no interest in writing about what I do anymore, so I’m moving on. I still love taking pictures, so I have decided to start using flickr again. So for those of you who are interested in my photography keep an eye on my flickr account.

When it comes to my drawings and paintin etc. I haven’t really decided what to do yet. I might continue to use the blog for that matter, but I’ll update you on date later. Might start using tumblr again as a replacement. Not really sure.
Does anybody (if I have any readers left) have a recommendation on where to keep people posted with my art?

Tractor party

We found ourselves at a tractor event of some sort. It was pretty funny to be honest. I’ve never seen so many tractors gathered at one place in my whole life.

The weather was constantly changing between rain and sunshine. It was rather dramatic when the sky opened up and showered us. All the tractor people ran to the only tent that was there.

I have no idea why they had a tractor event here, we didn’t even think about asking, but it was charming indeed. There were some pretty awesome old school tractors as well as new ones.

A visit from the other side of the world

My dear Aolai came to visit me in Luxembourg, all the way from Australia. I’m so lucky to see her twice within half a year! I thought it was gonna take at least a year or two before I saw her again.

Aolai was amazed by Luxembourg. No wonder, it’s absolutely an amazing place to spend some days. We drove around the little country, seeing all the green fields and lovely nature. Aolai was as exited as I used to be about the fact that you can drive to another country in less than 30 minutes. We ended up in Remich where we found a little market, but our pleasant stop was ruined by some heavy rain that forced us back to the car.

After driving around streets Jonny didn’t even know existed, we found a cute little lady selling home made jam and alcohol. We decided to buy one of her homemade jams. It tasted absolutely delicious!

After buying the jam we continued our journey and had a pit stop at a wine yard where we took some silly photos.

I had the pleasure of taking pictures of Jonny while he was surfing. You paid 25 euros and could surf for an hour. Pretty amazing to see how much Jonny improved during that hour. I did not when I tried. Let’s not talk about how terrible I was trying this… Hopefully I’ll manage better next time. Maybe
