Finally caught Frederick on "film". He doesn't like my mobile so whenever I try to take a picture he gets very shifty πŸ˜‚. But I picked up their training ( #clickertraining ) again which means #treats . He does nearly anything for treats!

Nearly done with this #armadillo #drawing . I had to order new pencils and thought I give some new ones a chance and went for #tombow #mono100 . Man they are rich and way darker than the #fabercastell ones I normally use. Probably I'll be keeping working with both since I really enjoy the hard ones from faber castell and the soft ones from tombow!! #Ilovegraphite

Found some time to finish my #wacom pen holder. Wanted to have a unique one for a long time. Now I just have to varnish it and it's done!

Done. Going to scan and post the final #blackandwhite #drawing tomorrow and have to find someone who will takr a picture of ne holding this monster πŸ˜…. It's not the biggest I am wotking on right now but it is the biggest original drawing for a comission. This job gave me a ton of freedom including time and experimenting a bit. So I did it in the size I would wish to see an #original drawing πŸ˜‰.

Another #garden update since the drawings are big and going slow. Plus: my garden is a neverending place of inspiration literally and in a wider sense. Nature is a big factor in my recent work and cultivating a garden reminds me to be patient. A plant will only grow if it's nutured and has the right conditions. But it does it in its own time. My garden looks a bit wild and crowded, but everything has its place. The more you give nature a chance to decide things on its own terms the more you will be rewarded by tiny visitors like bees, spiders, birds, bugs and maybe a fairy. Here are some late spring flowers: 1)Purple granny's bonnet 2)My shadowy corner with many foxgloves, ferns, blueberry bushes, water avens and a garden gnome 3)The forget-me-not's are still in full bloom. 4)And there are still solitary bees building nests! 5)Ramson in full bloom! 6)Since so much of my garden is dark and moist I have 4 different ferns growing there 7)Potatoes and more fern. 8)Cultivating some liverworth in a flowerpot. I love moss and never had liverworth until this winter which makes it the fourth moss sort in my garden. 9)My herb corner. 10)My poppy has finally  a bud. Planted it two years ago and forgot which colour the blossoms have!

This is the bad boy I want to finish right after the movie poster. Started this #drawing of a #dwarfarmadillo (called a #pichy ) last year, was interrupted and never picked it up anymore until now. Some flora and fauna will be added to this lovely specimen.

Stick them with the pointy end. I never pack these in my hand luggage πŸ˜„.

Nearly done - so much polishing to be done though. Probably fix some stuff digitally. 😢 Off to bed now.
