I have been very inactive again, even though I promised to post more after all the moving was finished. It seems I’m constantly underestimating how much time things will really take.

School started this week. It’s been fun, but very busy. I spend a lot of time at the drawing table right now, sketching and working on assignments. This kind of technical drawing is new to me. We use a lot of different materials. It’s a bit annoying at times, but very effective.

Even though theese drawings are not created as art, I still think theese things hold some artistic merit. So I decided to show them to you anyway. It’s all straight lines and precise measurements here, and lots of rules to follow. Quite different from what I usually do. But I enjoy learning.

We use ink for the lines and dark areas, another thing that’s new to me. Until yesterday, I had never used ink. But I fell in love with it, unexpectedly. I use pilot pencils, no idea if they are considered good or not. Since I spend some time on the train and bus every day now, I decided to start a sketching diary. In ink, to start with. Some of it will probably go up here.
