The first timelapse I've ever done. Had to buy a tripod, especially for it hah
A spontaneous drawing with no real plan, as always ;D want to see more like this?
Which is your favorite? Let me know 👇✌️
Slowly getting back to creating. Another coloured piece of mine.
It's super fun to see the extra dimensions a drawing gets when colored. I never was good at colors. Photoshop has let me experiment a bit more freely with them.
How d'you like it? Let me know ;)
23:45 06 VIII 17. FLAMINGO. Kasia was wearing a shirt today with a flamingo on it. Made me really want to draw one 🦄
17:07 03 VIII 17. Brushing the dust off. Getting back into drawing after a long break.
22:09 24 VII 17
I'M BACK! There's been soo much going on. This is the first time in 7 months that I've had time to sit down and do some drawing. I must say, I've gotten a bit dusty. Feeling super excited to get back into it and start creating again. lol yes!
23:55 07 XI 15. A tattoo design I did for a friend, over a year ago. The idea was to make an acid-trip-like heart. The heart itself was to be made from a mango and raspberry. It was a very quick draw, and I thought that like all my other tattoo designs I did for friends: they would gather dust in a cupboard somewhere. I was pleasently surprised today..
K-STATUS! 10K followers!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you, and to officially APOLOGIZE.
I am not proud of how I have gotten here. When I first started using instagram, I was sure that getting seen was a matter of time. I was thrilled to create new stuff, but my work wasn’t being seen. In the meantime, I was seeing scribbles with thousands of likes. My views were slowly growing but it was taking ages.
Instagram changed it’s scripts. Suddenly, the posts that showed up on your daily feed were not the most recent. It was the posts with the most traffic. My posts were being lost and unseen, just because I wasn’t popular. It soon became clear, that instagram had layers to it.
Apparently, people were following others, and unfollowing them soon after to grow their fanbase. But I was above all that. „If my art’s good, it will be seen” I thought. After a couple months I realised; If you can’t beat them, join them.
Needless to say; the results were amazing. The numbers were finally jumping and all it took was a „poke”. Unfollowing you, was very painful at first. I looked at each account. As time went on, I learned not to.
And the someone commented „Thank you for following me! It’s an honor to have you” and my heart sank. What can I reply? How can I explain? Should I ignore it?
Follow. Unfollow. What a stupid cycle... I felt more and more like I was using you. The same way I felt the first time I realised that the huge account with +10k followers wasn’t at all interested in my work, didn’t reply to comments and unfollowed me soon after.
To be seen you must be popular. To be popular you must be seen. What made it less bad was to check out any accounts that commented or DM’ed me. I love helping out and giving hints on how to improve when I can. Shout out to @colton.j.chehowy
But now we have hit 10k. And all this stops. I do not see the numebrs anymore. I did what I needed to do to grow. I hope you can forgive me, and understand why I did it.
From now on the number of people followed by this account will no longer change. It will stay at 1.
Thank you for being here. You are all unique and amazing. Peace!! And have a wonderful day ✌️
GO CRAZY TO STAY SANE.

Lately I can’t get enough of @mcbess ‘s work. The way he uses intense black in his work. It’s not easy to fill in areas entirely, without shading. This has been a struggle of mine for a long time, but I can slowly see it starting to work. I’m losing a bit of my randomness, and trying to balance the black & white areas, as well as the detailed & blanc. Giving a composition rooom to breath is crutial.
Also, I can’t get enough of the happy cheeks McBess’s draws. So I copied them.. sue me.
Another thing I learned is with the black bubbles on the mushrooms. I used to leave a thin white strip on the right side of the two light-spots. But then I saw that the bubbles look even better when I fill that thin strip in. A very small difference, but super satisfying to know now.
Had some trouble with the background too. At first I wanted to fill in the bottom in 100% black. Then I thought I would add some spaghetti-stuff coming from the ground. And once I did that I couldn’t push myself to fill in the ground with pure black. I guess I’m happy with the compromise, because on the left side, under the teath, the spaghetti-lol is almost as dark as the ground. It’s barely visible. This is, again, a super difficult thing to learn; showing things in a subtle manner. Not everything has to br shown. Some things can be implied.
I’m excited to show you this piece, because as you know, I’m just getting back into drawing after a 7month break and this is the first drawing I’ve done that’s bigger than A4 since then. Gradually getting used to bigger formats again. And can’t wait to go BIGGER!
Can you find the alpaca? ;D
This one from a while back. Although I hate to admit it, I drew it while looking at @kasiakuzco hah
Back from vacation!
22:55 20 I 17. As always, this drawing started off with some randomness. That's how I usually start. No thought about composition or anything. Then when I've had some fun, I start thinking "lol! Now to organize this lol a bit". That's when I slow down and take time to really FEEL the weight of the drawing. Basically fixing all the mistakes I made ;D
17 VIII 17 15:19. A quick doodle on my way to restoring the style I once had. Getting closer and closer to what I used to be capable of creating. D'you feel it's strange enough? Naaaaah
HAND DRAWN / DIGITALLY COLOURED
My third shot at digitally coloring a drawing of mine. Was a lot of fun to do, and can't wait to make another.

Did this one almost a year ago. It is finally time to post it. With all the work going on, some of my stuff falls into a time-vortex. It can take a while to fall back out.
I don't often draw skulls. I am not a huge fan. But during this architecture-lesson, for some reason I felt like drawing one. Have a great week! See you on Wednesday ;)
Super stoked to be featured in Behance's 'Curated Gallery'! This is my first ribbon on Behance, and it feels lolin sick! This was a super fun project to be a part of, and I'm feeling pumped to show you the new stuff I have been working on. Trying to grow a bit, each day. If you haven't seen the project yet, check out the link in my bio ;) Peace!
