Hello! It’s been a while hasn’t it?
No. I’m not going to say “I’ll be more active now”, because every time I’m saying this it ends up with me exactly NOT doing it.
But honestly I’m feeling good right now, and it feels good to say this. I’m feeling good to the point I started reading again which is nice because apparently it has a positive effect on me. It inspires me and keeps me motivated. I say this because the two last years I really had trouble concentrating on reading a book until the end. Even though you enjoy reading it and love the story. Like when you start reading a book and something happens in between and suddenly your not motivated nor concentrated any more, anyone who can relate? I mean I’ve been painting and drawing a lot (even though again I didn’t share a lot of it) Yet I don’t know I had trouble being really active on Instagram and other social media except in my story … which isn’t necessarily bad. To be honest I’ve been more productive thanks to it.
Then I had a seasonal job for the winter and the colleagues were really nice. I really enjoyed working there. I went through many roller coasters but again right now I feel really good and motivated. As if I finally know what I want again and where I’m heading to.
Anyway this was just for a little update.

Before I leave you to cook for my family though I would love to share this little art haul video I did just now. I’m really proud of it and I’d really appreciate a little comment or something … for the support? (god I’m kind of shy when it comes to sharing videos) Anyway have a nice day or evening or night, and I’ll see you soon! Stay safe! ♥

When I was studying (Illustration and Graphic Design) there was this semester where we had a class called “Motion Graphics”. The first exercise our teacher gave us was to choose a song that we relate to a lot and create an animatic for it.

For those of you who don’t know what it is. An animatic basically is a video that contains a series of drawings with audio in it. It’s not automatically animation or stop motion. 

What I did was an animatic about an original character of mine that is based on the universe of “Durarara!”. Since the musician I would have loved to use a song for back then hadn’t replied, some years later I decided to resurrect the whole project and make something completely different out of it WITH royalty free music, because that’s what you gotta do when you don’t get the rights to it, don’t you?

The result is to be seen in the video above and with that a new concept for a series of videos awoke — How does it sound “awoke”? As if the video series had some sort of spiritual awakening. Haha. —

Anyways, this series will be called “OC Aesthetics” (OC = Original Character).
The main focus will be on giving you a feeling of my OCs personality. It will be more about emotions than about storytelling.

But honestly I don’t want to tell anyone what they have to interpret in these videos, because that’s what’s so beautiful about making art. Two people can look at the same artwork, interpret different background stories in it and feel something completely different.

If you’re interested in the topic of original characters though and how they have an impact on life, I’d be really happy to write a blog post about it. Same as I’d be to tell something about my original characters so don’t hesitate to ask.

I hope you enjoyed the video and if you want to see more of them then follow me on youtube, be patient and stay updated.

Have a great day. ♥
