It's been a while...

... and a lot of things has happened and at the same time nothing at all.

I have been drawing and creating things, maybe not as much as I would have liked to but still. But I actually have kept my new years resolution about drawing daily sketches according to the list of subjects I set up for myself and I feel really good about that. As far as other projects go I haven't been as good at keeping up I'm afraid. I have a long to do list... and it keeps building up. Oh well, I guess I'll get there in time and if not... it's not like it would be the end of the world.

Another thing that has happened is that I turned 24 in February... yeah another year older and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up...
Form the birthday money I got I bought my self a VIKA BLECKET Drawing-table top from IKEA with VIKA ARTUR legs that is "Adjustable to different positions for flat or angled table top".
And it feels great having a good place to sit and draw at and the glass top works just like a light table/light-box which makes it easy for me to take sketches and trace them onto good paper. I usually use cheap printer paper when I start out drawing something because I don't see any reason for ruining expensive art paper on something that might just turn out to be a doodle.

Another thing that I'm working on is making birthday card to sell in a local "store" (in lack of a better word), it's basically a place where local crafters and artists can sell their work. It's only open during the summer time and I'm going to be having a table together with my aunt who is selling handmade doll cloths. And if it goes well I might have my own table next year. But now I must get my act together and actually make the damn cards to... Grrr.... it's so much easier to do personal cards for friends and family members since I know them and can make it funnier and with more feeling then making a card for a complete stranger. But I'm working on it.

Another thing new is that I actually have a YouTube channel now... I first created it so that I could do video blogs but I really don't think that that is something I want to do... I think I would be a easy target for the so called "haters", (I really don't like that term thought) , so right now I'm posting time-lapse paintings and other art related things. I might do videos with me in it if I feel I have something to say that have so do with my art work... but with that said I'm sure I will be tempted to dive into the youtube community and do video responses and what not. But I don't think so. My channel name is TheCloudedMind if you would like to check out the video I have posted so far. I will probable add some of the videos in this blog when I have figured out how it works.

Soon you might have to endure a lot of photos of kittens because our cat My (that is her name) is expecting babies at the end of April and I'm planning on taking as much photos as I possible can... It going to be lots of fun and I'm excited.

I really need to update my deviantART gallery and journal soon but I find it really hard getting into it after this long... I still check in but now days I'm a lurker that simply observes and it has been months since I read any of the journals in my messages... it's not that I'm not interested but there is just so many people that I watch and some of them post several journals a day and I find that reading text on the computer screen really hurts my eyes... but I guess the basic truth is that I'm lazy.

Hmm there was more things that I was going to talk about but it seems like I have rambled on too far already so I think I will rap it up now. I will add a new blog post for the images instead of making this go on forever.

So in conclusion... I'm alive but I am not very active on the Internet. I simply watch and observe... And if you managed to make your way through this long text I salute you... ;)
