I've been drawing since I can hold a pencil and tried my first comic at the age of 10. Cartoons and comics have always been my main interest, although anime followed as an influence later on. I have a fascination with canines, equines and creatures of folklore, which are also my main source of inspiration.|
It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the
Most of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever

I had the weirdest experience yesterday.
A co-worker pulled me aside to tell me sth. he thought I might find funny. Unknowingly, he entered right into my personal "pet peeve” territory.
As some of you might know, I draw at work, during late shift, when things are quiet.
He told me that yet another co-worker of mine asked him about what would make a grown woman (read: me) color pages from a coloring book. His perpexled answer was, that, well, I’m not coloring anything from a book, I DRAW these things and THEN color them. She replied, confused: Oh, and what for? He: Ehr. To SELL it.
Apparently that satisfied her, because she said that, well, she guessed that made sense now, and that she wondered if she should start worrying about me.
He found that quite laughable, but for me, that is one of the reasons why I don’t like to draw in public. The ignorant “why are you doing sth. so childish fraction” (as if her before mentioned coloring books, or animated movies to name another example, are PRODUCED by children) and the other worst case scenario: The “could you draw me something fraction” (for free, of course).
Luckily, most of my experiences when drawing in public are good ones, and the above mentioned only happens very, very rarely, but that person made her way directly onto my personal shit list.Oh, and just for the record, i wouldn't be surprised if there are indeed grown people coloring pages from coloring books: Regardless of what my co-worker might say, this is a valid hobby to have. Enjoy yourself!
