I work out at home. This is my set up. Well, it is really small because my apartment is small. Step is my absolute favorite workout style! :D I do workouts from all over YouTube but primarily with realfit.TV.

A bit of an 80s vibe.
I messed up the eyes. The paper was still wet when I tried to outline in black and it just bled through the whole eye :(

There is a delicious cocktail in Germany called the "Hugo" which contains elderflower liqueur. I wonder if it has an English equivalent?

My boyfriend has a Facebook group dedicated to German idioms and sayings. If you want to find out about this one, go read it here. It's supposed to be a shaking torch if you are totally confused.

Jan. 10 Sketch - Yuck

Jan. 10 Entry

My boyfriend normally takes out the bio waste but on this day I decided the waste bucket was too full and did it myself.

I was greeted with a horrible surprise. The bottom left and the whole side lining of the bucket was covered in threadlike green mold. The bottom right had this egg-like bulbous jelly that was yellow and white. It was absolutely DISGUSTING!!!! :(

I had received Tommy's Christmas present in the mail so I tried out the new sketchbook and the prismacolors. I have a full set of prismacolors back in Canada so I am really happy to be using them again in Germany.

Didn't feel motivated to make an effort. Or you can say it's high modern art.

My dinner - Maultaschensuppe

Pencil, watercolor pencils

Maultaschen is South German ravioli. I used to think they were nothing special but lately I am addicted! The fish maultaschen served at the lunch cantine is horrible though... (it should only be veggies and/or pork!)

Welcome to my art/inspiration blog!

Welcome to my art/inspiration blog!

It's been admittedly a long time since I have maintained any sort of writing, so I hope this space will be something active and long-lived.

My Resolution for 2015 is to make something creative every day. This will primarily take the form of sketches but may include writings, computer graphics, photos, etc. The purpose is not to display something perfect all the time (I will be first say any constructive criticisms and would welcome them from you) but to keep being creative.

Coincidentally I received a belated Christmas present this week from Canada from my friend Tommy! Among the things he gifted me with is a compact sketchbook, pencils, and Prismacolors. Wonderful!!!

Let's get those creative juices flowing!
