I never had a taste for classical music, but my grandma had a Bösendorfer since she was a child. This meant that someone from the grandchildren had to play the piano, and I won the family lottery. I had no talents, hated going to music school, but I loved hanging with her and practicing her favorite pieces. I pretended to like playing, and she pretended not to hear how bad I was.
I made a Lady Gaga viz by accident. I’m not a fan of pop music, but she’s just one of the most talented women of our time.

Who wants to sleep in a city that never wakes up?
When my Wacom tablet arrived in November I started sketching the below girl, my very first freehand drawing. It has been put aside for a while but I started finishing it up yesterday evening. As she looks like the type of rebel who listens to Arctic Monkeys in a city that never wakes up I […]
I’ve been listening to the Silversun Pickups a lot lately and having a hard crush on the song called Lazy eyes, I decided to put my recently lazy hands into use. I don’t have the slightest idea of what popular eye colors mean, but as long as Wikipedia has this covered, let’s just be cool […]
