I´ve spent this weekend practising my illustration skills. Drawing is something that comes so easy and natural that I often forget to do it. Sounds silly, right? I often tend to put the "must dos & have tos" before the "want tos & love tos". This is why I end up making illustrations whenever I ticked off everything on my list. Which hardly ever happens. Hence I really don´t draw as often as I want to. It makes my heart ache when I think where I could be (skill-wise) if I kept up a regular routine.
But woulda-couldas never get you anywhere, right? So I´ll grab my sketchbook tomorrow and do do do as much as I can. I don´t want to belong to those who dream what they could do instead of doing what they dream of. Hussaaah!
And I´ll be moving in two weeks!!!! I still can´t really grasp it. But slooowly it starts to sink in. Every time I get the "Oh gosh, I have an apartment!"-flash, my brother and I are doing a happy dance of such awkward clumsiness, it would actually be worth a video.
Here are some wonderful links for your gusto:

Happy start into the new week!
