I’m so tired, and ashamed of myself for not having drawn anything lately. Aside from those dozens of works I make in work of course. However this I made last weekend for a certain contest in DeviantArt. I had to use traditional methods because my tablet doesn’t work in Vista and I suck at mouse.

I’m trying out this Windows Live Writer, of all desktop blog software I looked into this seemed the most promising, even though being Microsoft. If anyone can recommend a better software I’d be very grateful.





And process

I’ve been grabbing my morning coffee in Ylikiiminki’s only gas station café this past week. It’s just funny how there are always those same people sitting there, at least some of them, and they know everyone there. When you visit there daily it really makes you feel that everyone in this village of 3000 people know each other. There is this warm atmosphere, even though their stories are quite… hm.. hillbilly and stupid :D

I still prefer coffee shops in Rotuaari :P

I ended up chatting so much in msn that I almost forgot to draw anything. That’s why this turned out this simple and unimaginative. I’ll probably paint this scenery in photoshop tomorrow.
