For the first time I’m putting one of my poems up:
When life knocks you down and the days that you spend Seem to last an eternity – visit a friend You’ll drink and you’ll talk and you’ll laugh and you’ll play And see every eternity lasts just one day
This is for my friends K and R. You know who you are…
I’ve been kinda busy lately. You might have noticed, since there has not been a whole lot of posts. I tried to cover the St. Patrick’s Day Parade here on the site but it was seriously the lamest parade I’ve ever seen. The internet told me it was the biggest parade of its kind in continental Europe. If that’s the case then I pity the poor Irish that live in continental Europe.
Anyway, I’m still busy but now in a much more positive way. I’m drawing and writing like crazy, but since the past has tought me that my projects tend to have a radical decline in progress whenever I start telling people about them I will stop for now and leave you with this teaser picture.
See you soon!
I love books. I always wanted to write one but I’m never quite satisfied with my prose writings. It seems I need the construct of verses to write something good. Too bad nobody reads poems anymore. Guess I’ll just keep practising until I finally reach a level of quality in my writing I can live with…
In the meantime I’ve come up with two other ideas to satisfy my urge to produce something I can print and bind in a nice hardcover volume:
1. Illustrating! I’m working on illustrations for my favorite stories and poems which are -lucky for me- most all in the public domain by now, so when I finish one book or perhaps some shorter things from one specific author I might be able to print a few copies for collectors sake. Assuming I can find the money to pull this stunt.
2. Well, … , let me put it like that: Something that does not require my writing to be good. You know what, I’ll simply show you. I should have some preview material ready by the end of next week. We’ll talk about that project then.
Anyway, speaking of illustrations and stuff, yesterday I got to illustrate a short story which I hope I can post here soon. I’ll have to wait for the authors approval though. Until then!
