Cool in the cold

I’ve seen a lot of cool winter people around the city lately, including this elderly boss lady with sunglasses and walking sticks.

“Keep safe, suckas” – Elderly Lady (probably)

I drew this on a normal tablet (not the Wacom). I’ve been trying to minimize my screen time a bit, so I’ve mainly been drawing on paper for a while. But now I’m getting back to digital a bit, especially because colouring is fun.

Watching sporty winter games – and learning new words

I’ve watched A LOT of Winter Olympics these pasts 2 weeks. Apparently, I’m a massive snowboard fan, who knew! I’ve never had skis or a snowboard near my own feet, but I just love watching those super humans fearlessly fling themselves in the air while looking incredibly cool.

I’ve also enjoyed learning lots of new words and phrases: slopestyle and halfpipe and other things, that I now only know in Danish. But then I watched a bit of ice skating yesterday, and they have to take the win for most amazing terminology. A backward outside death spiral sounds exactly as beautiful and terrifying as it is.

My favorite moment of the Winter Olympics was when a very brave/stupid squirrel ran across the track during the women’s parallel giant slalom. I hope the little guy is okay!

Winter casual lady warm colours

… freezing! Winter is cold. I even wear a coat indoors at the moment. This drawing of a calm and casual winter woman in warmly coloured surroundings helps. Kind of.

Also – yay, I did a bunch of drawings this week. Last week, two of my friends (at separate occasions) told me to get back to the doodles again, so I did. Also because I want to, but somehow I forget that I love it!

It might sound a bit crazy that I’d forget to do something that is literally my all-time favorite thing. I guess that’s what friends are for:

Reminding you to do things you like, when you forget them.

Wow it’s leaning towards soppy, this first post of 2016. Oh well, it’s a soppy season. Happy January everyone – stay warm AND/OR draw warm things.

Freakin’…
