Hey there!
So I was sitting there today drawing a kingfisher...(don't ask me why!) and when I was done I thought something was missing....and then the very random part of my mind took over...
Here's what happened!
don't ask me why that whale thing in the back has stripes on his back btw....

Hey everyone!
I'm back from the beautiful country of Denmark-sadly we were very busy so we didn't see much of the city but on the boat trip I took a LOOOOT of pics...and then I kind of experimented a little with photoshop :D They look so cool and surreal!
And by the way-what do you think of the new look? is that green to icky? I could change it....

Pencil Case

Hey guys!
So-what do you do in English class (when you're done with the tasks of course! ;D)? Yes-you're right-you draw! and what? anything in front of you....and that is? Ma friends pencil case...well why not?! here you go!
Oh by the way-just a tip when drawing pencil cases-make sure the pens you need for drawing are not in it :P

He guys!
So this is a slightly improvised post as I'm at a Model UN Conference in Kopenhagen right now and I scheduled all other post in this week. I must have forgotten Saturdaz for some reason though so this is one of the experiments on shadows and light and stuff with markers.
I hope you like it!

Random Glasses

Unlike lots of other doodles and quick sketches I do-I really like this one...
It is really simple and I think the colors fit together quite well....and of course it is very random :D
What do you think?

Live Your Dream(s)!

Hi everyone!
A friend showed me an awesome picture yesterday where a part was a spray paint can which was spraying paint and then out of the sprayed paint came a hand with a pointed finger :D It was very awesome! In fact it was so awesome that I had to try making something "grow" out of the paint from a can too :D
I settled for some kind of writing and then I just had to find something short enough XD
So-what do you think?!

Another-the power of randomness drawing :D
Apfelkitsche is the german word for the stuff that is left of an apple when you've eaten all the good parts!
All the pens are from friends by the way...:D I should really take my fineliners and markers to school :D

The mentalist ftw!

There is only one thing to say....Mentalist ftw!

Anyways-I hope you enjoy and if you've never watched the show-go do it now! It's awesome! :D

Marker Experiment

Ok-I want to make this clear-I really don't like how this picture turned out....It was an experiment with markers and at the beginning I was like hm-maybe this could work but now-no-definetely not...
It doesn't happen often that I really feel like I could rip the drawing into pieces after finishing it (and spending hours on it XD) but this is one of those times...
I thought I'd show it to you guys anyway though-so here you are....
I don'T know-something about the proportions isn't right...and halfway through the drawing I noticed that I really don't like the hairstyle....

Carnival in Kölle (finished! :D)

So on the last day of carnival (Veilchendienstag-German Carnivalists have the knack of giving days names of flowers for some reason....:P) and I have for you an aquarelle of the Parade in Cologne which takes place every rose monday of the year :D An experience everyone should have once because it is simply seriously awesome! 
I love running into pirates, clowns or pokemons on the street ^^

Camouflage lady

"He who is afraid to grasp a thorn should never crave the rose." by Ante Bonte...
I don't know why I drew a girl next to that...and have no clue why I colored her in shades of green and orange...but it reminded me of I christined her camouflage lady....aren't we innovative today? :P
I don'T know why she looks so sad though....

The 200th post!

I seriously can't believe it...when I started this blog pretty exactly 200 days ago I would have never thought I would ever post this...but apparently I am posting it---and it feels pretty awesome! :D
To honor this day I will post all my favorite designs/photos I ever posted on here...let's see if you remember!
PS:the easiest way to look through the pics is to click on one and then use the arrows :D
The first post...0.0 that was long ago...!

Work in 2

Nope-I'm not done yet-sorry :D
But I'm a great deal further...
And yes I'm aware that a paw, a hat, a shoe, a candy wapper and braided hair don't look like they fit well together but it is not done yet :D
Have patience with me :D

Work in Progress...

Hey everyone!
This is something I've never done on here before-I'm posting a work in progress...a) because I think it is cool b) because I'm not done ;)
Usually the drawing I post are about din-a 4 size or smaller but today I decided it was time for something bigger and well-bigger drawings take more time :)
So anyway-this is it...
This part of the pic is a lot more naturalistic than usually but it won't exactly stay like that :D I can't wait 'till it is done! ;)
