New Scanner

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 25, 2014, 11:23 AM
  • Mood: Isolated
  • Listening to: Susanne Sundfor - White Foxes
  • Reading: A book on the absurdism of the Soviet Union
  • Watching: Adventure Time
  • Drinking: Licorice tea
So, I bought myself a new scanner, yay (Canon Lide 220)! As well as a pair of new headphones (Sennheiser HD 419, the earmuff type kind of things). This means that now I can completely lose myself in the happy land of music and swirling galaxies created with pencil strokes. My favourite thing, really.

It's absurd, but through all these years, I've had only poor earbuds and no scanner of my own! This has probably limited my taste in music. What's more, I got used to scanning my pieces at the university library, nervous that some of the hardworking students would raise their eyebrows at my esoteric symbols. Of coure they couldn't care less!

Now I can draw and scan in the safety of my own home. This suits my generally hermitlike existence, creating a pleasant self-contained sphere of activity. This encourages me to draw more. I might even consider creating more risky stuff now, gasp! Blood, entrails and bare skin! Or embarrassingly cutesey stuff. Or absurd things I would otherwise not consider worth a trek to the library. Or all of them rolled into one!

If anyone of you would have any electronic music, pop, ballads or female vocals to recommend to listen to while making art, now is the time! :D

Kuume's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I'm a dedicated self-taught artist. Paintings, doodles and wild imaginations complement and build upon my more theoretically inclined university studies (anthropology and East Asian studies). I load my pieces with personal symbols and I consider them a means to think, to exist and to transform. I love mythology and stories, and like to alternate between visual and verbal expression. I also like to discuss the deeper things in life with all kinds of people. Feel free to leave a comment if you'd like to chat!

I am also the founder of the club Swirly Artists.

:iconswirly-artists: A group dedicated to the affiliation of design and vitality.

:icontulinuotio: My literature account.

Is your artwork spiritually inspired? 

7 deviants said Yes, I consider myself a channel and artwork as my method of approaching the sacred or doing magick.
7 deviants said Yes, although not explicitly and I believe creativity itself is magical.
2 deviants said Yes, but I am not a strongly spiritual person.
1 deviant said No, my artwork is not spiritual but I am.
No deviants said Yes, but I prefer to convey my spiritual inclinations through established mythical themes.
No deviants said No, my artwork is not spiritually inspired, just aesthetics but important all the same.
