I'm still here to put this. My last post was in February which was a long time ago. A lot has happened since, a lot of heavy and sad things and a lot of work. In the middle of all that and even if there was the summer vacation which restored me back to life, I haven't returned to this blog since.

But now I have. Things are much better again in my life and I'm getting a grip again on doing my own stuff for a change . Even if it would not be big or special I feel that continuing this blog is important for me.

They might not show it in an obvious way but the doodles and scribbles do reflect me in some way. It's unavoidable. Also in general I like to keep my drawing light and not very labored...that's why I very rarely do "finished and polished" works. I know I should at least to teach myself new stuff. But still I think my "style" if ever there's such, is the iconoclastic and towards the feeling of things and not so much to the craft of it.

But I also think "why not do it all just for the kick of it?"

We'll see. Anyway here's to get back on the track some totally random doodles done without much thinking but just with a feling and sensation of the moment and the mediums feel on the paper.

Plus a lot of doodles from sitting in meetings which is of course very productive ;)

Duudson doodles

Now something a bit different. A bit of my random freelancing work stuff. The photo is taken at the supermarket (by my gf Pia) of some Dudesons sweets that I did the black and white line illustrations for. Included is also a group pose meant to be used in the store marketing materials. It's also showing the 4th Dudeson HP who has his own candy too but not featured in the photo.

Midnight Nudes

Thought I'd churn out a pile of life drawings that I went to draw a while ago again..after a long pause infact.

These are from two separate sessions. The guy with the stick who was in his 50s was one of the most fun models I've seen in a while. I liked his poses 'cause he made an effort and added dynamics using some props. Poses are between 15-5min but mostly 5.

Don't be shy, click and get closer!

'nuff said.

The day of the doodles!!

Open the floodgates!! It seems my last update was in October. What have I been up to since? Nothing much but here's a collection of random doodles from sketchbook and scrap papers by the copy machine that nobody wants to use but they're good enough for my scribblings!

Also here's included drawings from the latest Sketchcrawl event in Helsinki where a bunch of peeps just went around the city to doodle. It was -13 so mittens in my hands and a large felt marker presented coordination challenges but also stylistic experiments (the statue and and speed drawings of a couple of ice skaters). Should have drawn more but I did concentrate too much on the social part of the event. I forgot my finnish heritage. Should have just shut up and drawn.
