The first drawings appear in 2011. I had been drawing them for a year before I started scanning into the computer. The beginning was more experimental and more different kinds of pictures.They were more like a story. Although I didn’t really have a specific story to tell.
Later they transformed into something to express my inner feelings, worries, and thoughts. Like an art therapy or something similar.
Sometimes I know what I want to draw. Other times I just start and will see what happens. There were times when I did several drawings a day. And times when I don’t do any for several weeks.
I have noticed that when I am happy I don’t have to draw.
I try not to do it to please people. I think it’s a trap when you to things to only hear how people say how much they like it.
The physical process of making these is very simple: pencil on paper. Sometimes fountain pen. Random ordinary smooth paper. I try to avoid the eraser as much as possible. Then I scan it and digitally manipulate image colour. I use GIMP. All my personal projects I use libre and open-source software.
