creative time

Random activities away from working hours and photography.

Nudes, films and cassette tapes

Last time I entered the legendary Orion movie theatre serving as the National Audiovisual Institute's (KAVI) home for showing movies.

Been awhile since I’ve posted anything, looks like I’m going to break the silence now. Last year went quite quickly. The adult education courses for cooking and nude drawing came and went. I’ve learned quite a bit about cooking, but I yet have put the skills into practice at home. Nude drawing has hard, especially … [ read more » ]

Flow in two forms

Summer is gone a long time ago, but I’ll still post some photos from the Flow Festival I went to this year too.

As I thought about it afterwards, I remembered I did have some old live video … [ read more » ]

From nothing to animated image

The initial sketch I did with my wacom and photoshop (A4 sized).

It didn’t matter what, I just wanted to do something creative instead of wasting the day away. After some no-brainer sketching, I ended up … [ read more » ]
