The drawing habit.

I lost my drawing habit. I haven’t done any drawing or doodling in ages. I miss it, and yet I spend more time cleaning up than drawing…

This morning in bed I thought how it takes a month to create a habit, so I figured I’d start drawing one drawing a day in april.

After I got up I thought ‘screw April, start today!’.

So, as of today, for at least a month, I will make at least one drawing (no matter what) to kickstart my habit. I’ll call it my ‘30-day drawing challenge’.

I’ll keep you posted…


Make your handwriting into a font.

As long as I’ve had a computer I wanted to turn my handwriting into a font. I made some attempts to do so, but they failed due to lack of proper programs. Today I stumbled upon yourfonts.com ( through Drawn! ) and they offer just that.

Print out the form, fill it it, scan, upload and downnload your font. It took about 15 minutes in total. And it looks so cool :D


Super mini-Cthulhu.

So I finished super mini-Cthulhu, that will hang an on a keychain. He will enjoy that! I made him about half-size compared to his big brother, who will work perfectly as a bag-hanging toy.

Pocket cthulhu.

Pocket cthulhu. I tried my hand at a pocket Cthulhu and it worked out pretty nice. Next try-out will involve a key-chain cthulhu, smaller but Scary! Or at least, I’ll try. Cthulhu will get you…


Meet Grimm, aka ‘Pocket Death’

Meet Grimm aka 'Pocket Death' The itch didn’t go away with pocket ninja, so I made pocket death and named him Grimm. I spent quite a few hours on him, tweaking, redoing and hurting my hands, but I just had to finish him. I will now give myself a few days rest before I continue any more crocheting. He looks so cute!


Pocket ninja

Pocket ninja

I had this crochet-itch yesterday, wanted to crochet something small. I can’t crochet much thanks to RA but my hands felt good so I looked for my hooks and some yarn and decided to try my hands on a ninja. After some work, this fellow turned out a bit bulky, but not too bad.

After I finished I went looking on the internet and found a whole new world of “amigurumi’s” with patterns and photos. My heart now overflows with belated acknowledgment for the hours I slaved and slaved as a child to crochet cute little creatures. Finally, people get it! Perhaps I can still find them somewhere and make photos…


Warming up.

I drew my new waterbottle. In just about 15 minutes, the 21st SketchCrawl will start. I decided today to participate, although I won’t go out and meet people and draw with them. Too ill still, so my participating will consist mostly of couch-drawing. Still, I want to try it, spend the entire day (or at least most of it) drawing and sketching. As a warm-up, I’ve drawn my waterbottle.

Spend most of the day cleaning up to prepare. So I better draw ;)


A drawing of food.

Vegetables . I had to make food, and after throwing it in the pan to warm up I started drawing and got distracted. I feel pretty good about how this turned out, I haven’t done any drawing in ages (two or three months) because of my increased arthritis, and I found it didn’t start hurting more when drawing this. Possibly caused by having a painkiller less than an hour before though :)
