“The snake kills by squeezing very slowly. This is how the civilized world slowly, slowly pushes into the forest and takes away the world that used to be.” James Cameron

I even don’t know where to start…I have been away again. This time almost a year. Those of you who have been followed me for longer time, maybe have noticed, that it happens me from time to time. I don’t know if this time I will stay here longer, I hope I will. But life is full of changes and you can never be certain.
And change is the keyword of this year. I made changes in my art (started to use uni pin fineliner) and my personal life as well. But the biggest change happened in my mindset. I understood that if you want to be happy, then you just need to start to be. Forget all this: I’ll be finally happy when…There will never be more perfect time for being happy than now. Life always have it’s obstacles and difficulties. So, like the song says: don’t worry and be happy. 😀
P.S. I made new section in my blog menu called Pen(cil) Art, where you can find some of my new pen drawings amongst some old pencil drawings. I hope you like them. 🙂
Kajsa and Kiko wish you all merry and beautiful Christmas. They have decorated their house and now only need to put the star up to the tree and then they are ready for the Santa’s coming. 🙂
I also hope that you have beautiful holiday. We are very happy here in Estonia, because this year we finally have white Christmas. 🙂
This picture isn’t appropriate anymore, because the Halloween is over for this year, but I didn’t want to wait til next year. 😀
I didn’t like the previous background of this picture. You can see why. There were just some silly-looking bushes (now there are silly-looking bushes and some lights :D). I wanted the background look simple, but not that simple. I posted the picture too soon, when it was not ready. I did it, because I was in a rush and had so little time to finish it. But I so badly wanted to post it in the Halloween.
My main issue with the previous background, though, was that it was too green. Halloween takes place in the autumn. And in Estonia, where Kajsa and Kiko live, the nature changes in autumn. The leaves turn orange and yellow and brown, until on the Halloween, the nature suddenly looks like it’s a big pumpkin itself.
But, even if Halloween is over, then there’s no need to be sad. Because soon it’s Christmas! 😀 And if you didn’t know, then today it’s All Souls’ Day. Thus, I hope you have a beautiful and peaceful day (or evening, as in Estonia). 🙂
Kajsa and Kiko went trick-or-treating. What about you? 🙂
“Let’s make pancakes, Kiko!”
I want to thank everyone who said nice things about my first Kajsa and Kiko picture. I really appreciate your opinion, so it made me very happy that you liked it. Hope you like the new one, too. 🙂
* Unfortunately I didn’t came up with that cool apron design myself. I found this dress or vest with these cute pockets one day, when I searched cat-themed clothes, and it looked like something Kajsa (and me too) would love to wear, so I just stole the idea >D
Please meet Kajsa and her best friend Kiko, the so-called two-faced cat.
Though I drew it to look little bit like a book cover, I actually don’t write/illustrate a book. These characters just wanted to become alive. 🙂
Hope you like them!
If man could be crossed with a cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.”
