The second drawing I made since I got back to drawing after a 7month break. Realy random stuff. Again: took a black marker and did some blobs. Then I started fixing it up.
Made this small surprise for Kasia. Wanted to give her something ;)
I love doing these. They usually start with a long day. I finally sit down at my desk, turn on some music, dim the lights and turn off my brain. I love the moment where you have nothing to lose. A clear sheet of paper. Take a thick black marker and just draw random lol. Then, when I’ve had my fun, it’s time to get a 0,1mm pen and start adding details and fixing stuff. No planning. I like the effect of the white crayon on the black marker. I always have a lot of fun with these because there are no rules. I can do whatever the fuq I want ;) I guess you could call this a doodle
First tattoo I did for someone! Thanks Kuba!!
A lot of hidden meanings in this one. What an amazing thing it is to give others my creations, forever. Thank You for your trust. We both know what first tattoos can look like ;D

Ps; interior not mine. Mockup 👎
Even more important than my previous post, I am super excited to announce, that I am starting a new chapter in my life. This has been a dream of mine for so long. A year ago I got my masters degree in architecture, closing an exhausting 6 year experience. Immediately I started work in anything other than that. The stress surrounding it, the due-dates, long sleepless nights, workaholism.. this was not the life I wanted to live. Working at a company making games was a fresh breath of air. But uncreative mouse-clicking from 9 to 5 began closing me back into a cage. I wasn’t finding time to have a stable job and grow in the ways I wanted. A quote echoed in my head; “Never get too good at something you hate, or you will be forced to do it forever”. Finally, after a 7 month period, I decided to quit my job. Even though I was getting good at it, and getting raises, I knew this was not the path I wanted. I had earned enough to bite into my savings and focus on what I knew was going to be my first step in the right direction. In february, my parents had surprised me more than you will ever know. My first set of tattoo machines! For months they gathered dust, and it was finally time to bring them out. After a couple jobless months of practice and the help of the guys at @etctattoo , on Friday the 13th, I did my first tattoo. It just so happens, that it was also MY first tattoo. This is what I have gritted my teeth for, for all this time. This is what all the sacrifice was for. The parties I didn’t go to, the clothes I didn’t buy, the trips I didn’t go on, the bulllol I put up with. Refusing job offers that I knew I would be good at. Refusing to earn money in ways that didn’t let me grow. This was absolutely crucial. Fighting with my hands and feet to stay on track. Time had become more precious than money. This was the time in life to create myself. It's not easy to take such a huge step back. This is the beginning of an amazing journey. I am super blessed to have people who support me. I feel like I have won a battle. And I’m hungry to show you why I believed it would be worth it. I am a being. I am not perfect. I am twisted. These are my tattoos.
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 ✌️
