So, life still goes on. And I continue to draw some creatures to change my userpic in social networks, for my friends or just for fun. Anyway, viva my wacom tablet (and hope I will have money to buy a bigger one), viva la vida, etc, etc, etc. :)

(I started learning JavaScript)

In memory of a fly
died in my vine

Bored by this universe,
Olya leaves the samsara

I tried to find someone to
lend my flat for a while

First, I would like to tell this small history about these drawings.

It was started just as my attempt to draw. Actually, I planned to draw a lot being unemployed: one or two pictures were mentioned to be drawn daily. Though, I was not any enthusiastic about this idea before I managed to install my old sweet Wacom Graphire tablet to Ubuntu, so it now works perfectly with Gimp.

And now, there are the series about:

'Things that can be used in some circumstances without any reasonable gains and, maybe, making somebody life just more confused and even dangerous'.

I have the habit to draw some pictures according to the current mood, events, etc. Years ago, for examlpe, I drawn a set of of drawings with hedgehogs. There were different hedgehogs explaining my girlfriend being sick, some happy event, etc. So, I have started this idea again (with lots of free time available). June 22:
Rain all the day through. It is Saint Petersburg.
My sprouts are stretching too much because of unsufficient light (holy Universe, is not this 125W mercury lamp enough?!).
Currently, this problem is solved with a kind of mirrors to bring additional light to sprouts.
This night is the smallest night in Saint Petersburg. Being very northern city, it has very short nights in summer and very long nights in winter.
Indeed, we do not have a 'night' these days: very long days (the sun shines somewhere around 10am), very slow dawn becoming a sunset of the next day. Standing in the streets, you can read books several days through. If you want to. :)
There should be 4 images for this day. I did not understand why did I decide that and spent a time thinking about the fourth drawing. So, there is no drawing at all.
