back in business

I'm sorry about the slow posting recently, but I've been very busy doing client projects for the past months. Working and getting paid is always a good thing, but the downside is that at the same time there seldom is time or strength left to do any art. It has been too long since I last had time to draw anything and it really started to bother me. But finally those client projects are now finished, and after the release dates, I'll show you what I've been doing.

Now there is time for art again, and there should be, because I'm having my first solo exhibition at Kouvola Art Museum in March. There's going to be mostly older works from past years, but I'm trying do to something new also. Let's see how much I can draw in a month...

Yesterday night, I sat down, took a clean sheet of paper and started drawing. And damn it felt good after a long time. Once again I remembered, that this is where I find my little pieces of happiness: to be able to draw all night, listening good music, drinking tea, and not be distracted by anything or anyone. Doing something I somehow feel I'm good at, doing something that matters to me, no matter how small it might be in the eyes of the rest of the world.

So you can expect to see some new pictures soon. I hope you all still stick with me despite the occasional down time.
