[[This boat means alot to me and my sisters. We used to play on it every single day when we were little. We've been playing on it for some 10+ years. This is our secret hide-out. Our home away from home. To us, this is our special place. During the summer of 2009, the property owners decided to tear up the area around the boat and, eventually, remove the boat for good. We were heartbroken. We couldnt bear to have them take away our secret place. Our gateway to our imagination. We wrote a frantic note, begging to them not to take it away, and left it on the boat. They moved the boat alright, but only a couple feet away then left it alone. You couldn't imagine the relief we felt.
For the time being, the boat stays there, day by day, looking old and a bit forelorn. But, almost every day, my sisters and I venture to the boat once again and let our imaginations take over. For now, we are little kids again. The boat will always be a secret place for me and my sisters.]]

First Place in the Place of Peace contest! Wow! I'm in awe. Thank you so much everyone!
So many of you noticed the poll I put up about drawing with a mouse. Well, that had a reason: I had set up my tablet after moving back to college and found out that I had left my tablet pen at home. But I'm sure most of you know how it is, when the urge to draw strikes you can't really let it go - so I did this. 100% with a mouse.
It's icarus, and it's about creativity, escape, and perseverance.
So this is my entry for the wacom contest, with lots of symbols in it^^
I really had to think hard about what my dreams for the future are. Firstly, because I reached quite a lot already(on my own small scale) and secondly, because things like a house in the country and publishing a children's book are quite superficial. I don't think they are what makes you happy in the end. So what I really want is to become rich, but not in the sense of possessing money, but rich inside. One day I want to belong to those people who really lived, who faced all aspects of life, the good, the bad and the crazy ones and became strong and maybe a little wise. Who did not break and have great stories to tell. That's my dream.
