A close friend recently lost their family pet, Joey. As a tribute gift, I did his portrait.
I usually just draw people, so this presented quite the challenge for me. I have never attempted to draw animals/pets.

Ok maybe a couple of mornings.
I'm going to try to remember Throw Back Thursday. It's fun for me to go back and try to remember what was going on in my mind that made me doodle what I doodled on that day.
We all come from different places and I wish I could visit them all.
I try to capture macigal mood of Monica Rathkes photo from Yellowstone
I think I’m becoming obsessed with the whole rabbit hole thing.
First drawing of my serie of animals at their hides. Sketch and final drawing
Not a famous quote per se (as requested for this week's prompt), but my own little phrase I often think about and consider.
Drawing homes is my new form of meditation. I get lost in building the structure slowly, line after line. I could do this forever...

This sketchbook is my therapist. Not this one specifically, but any single one small enough to fit in my pocket. I tell it everything, from quirky thoughts and funny notes to abstract concepts, drawings and positive reminders. Keep it analog folks… a doodle, sketch, writing, poem, or scribble every day helps to keep the brain fit and the thoughts flowing. ✏️
I believe the future is about connection. Sometimes it seems that technology is making us more alone, but I like to believe that with every post, like, comment, follow, share, email and tweet, we are making ourselves more visible to one another. And together, we can make ourselves heard... Keep it positive, keep it loud, and keep it going forever.
Today was a day to go crazy in my Moleskine and then continue it on my iPadPro. It was so much fun to just let my brain take me for a ride and was pure therapy on a day where a lot of crap was coming from many directions.
Which pair would you wear?
This fun doodle is in response to the latest weekly drawing prompt to draw a pattern, in red, with a pen. If you want to play along, sign-up on the site and a new quirky prompt will be delivered to your inbox every Monday.
In the Finnish mythology killing of a bear was followed by a great feast in honour of the bear (peijaiset), where a substantial part of the celebrations consisted of convincing the bear's spirit that it had died accidentally and hadn't been murdered. Afterwards, the bear's skull was hung high upon a pine tree so its spirit could re-enter the heavens. The bones of the bear were then buried under the pine. Reference for this work is my old drawing of karhunkallopetäjä/bearskullpine in the Riisitunturi. Also practice sketch of bear skull and at last photo i took of pine.
Just some random doodling in my Moleskine. It never gets old.
Another song illustration
A couple of winter tree drawings.
I came across these Sepia Fine Liners! Had so much fun experimenting with them. Looking forward to creating some more images with these.
This was done on a heavy day. On days like this, I like to doodle whatever is inside my head to lighten things up. My therapy. Almost everything in here means something.
TBT. Yes, time totally rots. And posting a throw back Thursday on a Wednesday evening is my meager attempt to mess with it.
