I'm a Swedish 'artist' and art student, I mostly draw digitally or in aquarelle. I currently study art, art history and pottery making!
I was born in Östersund, which is a city in Northern Sweden & I'm currently living there as well.
On the weekends I go back home to my family by train a few hours away, we live in the middle of the forest, which is cozy. I love walking around by myself in the nature surrounding our house.
I like loads of things. To narrow it down those things are roughly: food, travelling, horror stories, baroque art and folklore. As well as Swedish culture, which is one of my interests.
I'm planning to attend an art academy sometime. I'm pumped about that.
I rarely have motivation and can't really focus due to ADD (currently have no medication for it) hence why I'm on and off drawing wise and suck at posting regularly - sorry about that! ^^;
My main inspirations art wise are John Bauer and Hans Arnold, both from my childhood. (Not that I really bring them into my art, but they inspire me to continue drawing.) I own a ton of books with their stuff, one is a rare 50's childrens storybook, John Bauer edition, it's very dear to me.
My supplies
For digital art: HP OMEN 15 + Wacom Intuos tablet.
For aquarelle: usually ARCHES® paper, currently a thinner 185g but I also like the thicker and granural papers. For brands of watercolour I use Winsor & Newton, LUKAS, as well as other brands, those are the main 2, though.

My own mini cinema



Dogs or cats:
Borzois and other big lanky dogs. Afghan hounds rock too.

Favourite food/dish:
Vegetarian spaghetti, mac & cheese, avocado sushi with soy sauce, potatisbullar, parmesan... Also, replacing the normal meatballs at Ikea with their veggie ones & keeping the rest of the meal. With a cheesecake on the side.
(I'm pescetarian.)

I'm agnostic, but I do believe in all kinds of folklore, the paranormal, real hauntings and reincarnation. As well as asatru, to some extent!
I love the gods and got an Odal rune tatted on my arm, as a tribute to Odin. But mainly to my family, ancestors, homeland and so on. It's in no way connected to anything bad, despite the controversial symbol! (ノ´ヮ`)ノ


I collect:
Bones & teeth, weird and cool printed tshirts (thrifted), seal plushies.

Thought I'd post some kind of update on here, a bit short on what's going on, and such.
Lately I've been applying for several schools, one art, one photography/film... unsure about the rest. Gotta be spontaneous, you know?
I'm already going to school, yes, but I crave more. More art, whether it's captured on camera or on a canvas, don't really care. 
I've never been too interested in photography, actually. It's never been much of a hobby, a... lowkey-barely-a-hobby perhaps. I enjoy others pictures more than taking them, but I switch interests quick, might get a camera and everything. (I have to if I go to the photography/film course.)
Wonder where I'll end up.

Anyway, going to bed now, showering first, I reek of unwashed motorcycle clothes & dirty helmet. :yuck:  Night.
i'd say...
billie eilish, i just don't like her, sorry.
snapchat streaks... i mean, it's just a pointless number, damn. don't see why people flip out over something like that.
the anti-vax 'movement', can't we send all anti-vaxxers to mars already?
