Below is the ceiling of my room in the 19th century apartment.


I am very satisfied. My next ceiling, however, I’ll paint myself.

Art-wise, I have only this thumbbird to add, since I haven’t really had time to do anything else than get acquainted with my new place of work, new city and new place of living. In all, I am very content with everything, albeit a bit overwhelmed. I have gone swimming in the Baltic sea twice this weekend, played several boardgames and managed to both study for work and get some drawing done.

This is an Interlude. Presented to you by Thumbbirds.

I have several hopes for this year. Mr Maslow would not protest, since the first hope is roof-over-head and getting-work-to-be-able-to-feed-myself (I am officially job- and homeless in less than three weeks). Another thing I hope for is to network more with the blog. I hope, with a new place of work and no night shifts (EVER!!!), that I’ll get more time and peace of mind to put some thought into what I want to do with my immediate future when it comes to art-making. I have some frightening plans on going digital as well, though I am very reluctant, really. I feel I do have to learn som digital maneuvering to develop some of the (secret) boardgame ideas I have.
Another thing I hope to develop is more steampunk attire and more steampunk illustration. As soon as I find somewhere more or less permanent to live (hopefully in 2013) I am going to modify a couple of headlamps I have had around for some time.

In other news: I have been hit over the head with another area of interest. Beekeeping. Don’t ask me where it came from, it just landed and stuck. I love it.

Upcoming: The 22nd of January will be the second anniversary of this blog. Expect Sockbirds.
