Balloon man



Hello, everyone! Last year I joined a group at my school. We work with setting up art exhibitions at different galleries every year, and in connection to this year's, we had a workshop this weekend. Among several other techniques and ideas, we learned how to make gifs, so I made this one, showing a man blowing up a balloon untill it cracks and the man ends up inside :)

If I'm a little keyhole...

If I’m a little keyhole
Please don’t look through me
All the things on the other side
They don’t want to be seen


Then would the guardian
Please come with a key
Just to fill the hole so that
No one can look through me


Be careful, I could swallow it
I’ve swallowed some before
I ruin every key in case
They could open my door


Oh, kindly, my friend, be aware
The secrets that I hide
If you peek, then it will crush
My dignity, my pride



So sweet and friendly, passer-by
Please don’t look through me
All the things on the other side
They don’t want to be seen

Black, white, yellow, green...

Hey, guys! You could probably tell I have worked some with this painting since yesterday, huh? I have even bothered to give her a face this time ^_^ Well, it needs a proper title, so

do you have any suggestions?

'Fear' (and soup...)

Hello! Here you've got my painting! I have some details to work out with the drawn version, so that'll come later. The second picture, though, is of my spinach soup that I had for dinner yesterday. I just HAD to show it to you, cause I really think it tasted like heaven!



Spinach soup (one person):

1 potato
A handful of cabbage
3 handfuls of spinach
Some olive oil
Salt, citric pepper and rosemary

Boil it all in 2 deciliters of water (add the spinach at last - it doesn't need as much time) until the vegetables are soft, and mix it with a hand mixer or a mix master. Then add:

2 deciliters milk
1 topped teaspoon of flower
30 g butter
Pepper (I used a mix including chili)
More salt if you need... :P

And some truffle oil in the end ;) Enjoy!

Blue portrait

Hi, folks! This is what we've been doing at school lately - working with color, and creating depth and volume with both light and dark, and with the colors' temperature. Please excuse the quality of this picture - I took it with my cellphone. I was also done with another painting yesterday, so you will get to see it soon!

Some paint and some patterns

My mom has taken my camera, so even though I just drew another...well...drawing, I'm unable to shoot it for now, and it's in A3 size, so it doesn't fit in my scanner either. Therefore, I'll just keep updating you about what I've been doing at school for now :)

On this one, we were told to but our brushes in our mouths and paint one continuous, black line on our paper. Then we took a black pen and filled in the shapes that were created by the main line with as many different patterns and techniques as we could think of. The point with all this was to look at the differences between randomness and control. As you probably see, I've edited this digitally and made it blue ;)

First day at school

Today was the first day at my new school! It was a short day - two hours of learning names and getting info - and I spent my time after mostly playing guitar. The second picture here, by the way, is of the creepy spider my mom found in the bath tub a couple of days ago...YUCK!

Done!

In fear of ruining it if I try to make it better (which happens way too often) I'll call this a finished drawing, and hand it to my friend later today. I don't think she's seen it yet, so I'm very excited to see what she thinks! Now I'm listening to Arctic Monkeys' If You Where There, Beware from their album, Favourite Worst Nightmare - love it! :)






Still drawing the portrait

This is how far I've come on the drawing of Vilje and Niall :)
