Day 1: currently listening to

Here I was, looking at my cute little notebook thinking to myself 'Hey this workshop will be a great opportunity to actually do something with it!' only to regret it 5 minutes later when I was reminded that I don't draw.

But you know what, I'll do it anyway! 

It doesn't have to look perfect and it's a great little task I can do to unwind after a long day at work.

So here is what I'm currently listening to: way too many true crime podcasts. But don't worry I also throw a podcast about infectious diseases in the mix to lighten up the mood and if that doesn't work and all I need is news about a guy carrying live pigeons in his pants I just switch to the next podcast.


Because I joined this workshop rather spontaneous all I could find to actually do the drawing were one single black marker and a pack of coloured pencils but that was all I needed really.

Day 2: recently I learned

One of my best friends recommended a documentary ("Blackfish") about an orca called Tilikum to me the other day and what can I say, there was a lot i didn't know about 'killer whales' and now I do.

Used fibre-tip pens today because I'm not 100% happy with the coloured pencil look yesterday.
