I've been thinking about art a bit and I would really like to have my things in one portfolio again, even though I haven't really made much in the last few years. I will try to upload these few artworks as long as I can find the motivation to do so.

I've started to get into pottery in the autumn of last year, so you will hopefully see some of my clay sculptures then. This is currently the medium I work most often in, since the sessions at the atelier I go to are quite therapeutic for me. My drawings have been nothing more than sketches though, now that I have been done with all kinds of university for quite a long time, so I lack the patience for that.

I have deleted the thousands of messages that have accumulated in my inbox here since I can't possibly look through them. Sorry for ignoring anyone who tried to contact me during my hiatus.

Here I am, emerging from the depths of the internet. The year 2012 has been a void, I had a long downtime because I kept fucking up the important task of moving on with my education/career, which resulted in sitting at home and fretting over myself for a long time. But with the start of the new year, things have changed for the better. I now have my work/internship and it feels a lot better than I could have hoped for. I'm trying to keep up with things and people that are important to me, and trying to pass for a reasonable person...

Recently I spent two weeks at uni again for a series of seminars, strange to be brought back to that place. It isn't what it used to be, a lot of my old friends and purpose friends are now missing because they moved on in time, and the department seems to disintegrate slowly... But sitting in a stuffy, artificially lit room with a voice reciting pharmaceutics-related monologue to me inspired me to hold some pencils for a while again. I know art is still a part of who I am, and I'm not just supposed to consume other's work. It's shameful how very, very little I make myself nowadays. I'm always aware that I ought to work on it, but it's hard to take the time for it when I could be doing some much less challenging, unimportant time wasting instead. Need to think about that some more.

One more thing, my last feature journal has been sitting here for over a year, so I think I displayed those artworks for long enough now :) But here's a new feature with some recent works of someone who evidently hasn't forgotten about me in all this time!

A few days ago I was featured in aboveClouds s journal, so now I'll add my part of the trade. Maybe somebody is still interested :)

1. For each of the 20 (lol) first people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
2. If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

I've moved again, this time to a more permanent place and finally with my weasel, which feels right. I have become a burgeois now at the age of 22 years. We have pastry forks. My parents were in awe when I served homemade cake. Maybe I should go and reserve a plot on the local graveyard for later, just to be sure!

Ahead lies what feels like it's gonna be the hardest time of my life so far, my final exams around march next year. It's gonna break me for sure. But for now, I just have a lot of the usual uni stuff, lab time is sped up and compressed and hard to follow. I go from one day to the next without thinking about much good stuff. The first one of the three little exams will be soon, and some presentations. I miss my old circle of friends. Hard to keep up with everything else, too. I try to make some art at least.
