Obsessive yes, but compulsive?

It's fun going through old drawings to see if I find anything for my portfolio. Lots and lots of thin grey and black lines, sketches and repetition. Slightly compulsive, but that's the way animators go I guess, if you're willing to draw 12 or more seemingly identical pictures to make one second, you gotta be a little koko.

I have a trick to put myself to sleep, I furnish and decorate different flats for myself, mostly suburban ones. I can keep going on the same one for a long time, sometimes months, going into different colour schemes, but almost always using my own furniture.

The other night I created a new bedroom for myself as I changed a studio into a one room:er. I'm very excited about this little home and kinda long closing my eyes to enter it. The room has got thunder blue walls and dark green wooden floors, my mother's old oak cabinet, plenty of flowers, my grand mother's tiny Persian carpet and the big Berlinian E on the wall.


These are my latest drawings, I'm working on a nighttime sky for an animation. Imagine something like this with falling stars:

PS. I love Bea Szenfeld's old paper dress.
Childishly flowery lovely exquisite. I found it among my stuff.
