What i've been doing

It's been a while since the last time i posted. Meantime i've gone to Bodrum for holiday, done some illustrations and sketches, read some books. I will post a couple of photos of Bodrum in the future. Don't have them yet unfortunately.

I've read three books and in my opinion:

Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
The variety of characters and how the author build the story was really magnificent.
As a reader it felt intriguing to see how other people see things, make choices and act that differently in life. Especially the tightrope-walker's profile was so deep. The way he thinks about what he do was beyond passionate.

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.
It was about an autistic boy who have big dreams like all children and have some family issues. It was fantastic! A beautiful mind he has! Before that novel i didn't know much of a thing about autism but it wasn't the thing that fascinates me most. Christian's (little boy) innocent yet the toughest, strongest soul that amazed me. I wanted the main character of the book to be my little brother or someone that i could be really close.

The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho
A Paulo Coelho book has always exited me before i actually read it. And never disappointed. I know all his books have spiritual concepts. Maybe for me that is what is good about them. I am not spiritual at all. But his books has this extreme positive effect on me, like i can do anything in the world and everything will work out just fine. Strengthening the belief in myself is a kind of spirituality i can work with.

i've done some illustrations and sketches:

Used watercolor with the first one.

Some of the sketches look really messy because of the low paper quality. I hope they'll look better when they colored. Thinking about watercolor again. The last one will be the next to be finished.
