the cast

As mentioned, I called the orthopedic yesterday. I'm getting really frustrated with this, as it has been four damn months already, and the pain has just gotten worse - so when they told me I could get an appointment the 14th of November, I felt like crying.
But the secretary I talked to told me she would ask the doctor what I should do, and then I could call her back.
They came to the conclusion that I could come in right away, and I could get a cast on!

I will have to wear it for 10 days only, and then the inflammation should be gone, hopefully.

Only thing about this is, that it goes all the way out to my fingertips, haha. It makes me so handicapped; I can't button my shirts; can't tie my shoelaces; can't put my hair in a ponytail; can't open jars; etc.. but I'll manage!
Tonight I didn't sleep too much, because I woke up and suddenly felt claustrophobic and panicked. I was convinced my fingers would fall off, and I imagined my hands filled with stinging red blisters.
Well, I have to get used to this for sure!


self portrait

Last week we [in school] were assigned to draw a self portrait, while looking in a mirror.
This too is done all with my left hand - the inflammation is getting worse lately, and I will call the orthopedic tomorrow..

This is the half finished, and finished drawing,
I've never tried this kind of self portrait, but I will be doing it a lot more; it's fun and a good exercise.


left handed art dump

I've had a few complaints that I don't update my blog that often anymore - so here you have a small update!
First of all, the inflammation isn't gone yet, and it's been three months. Hopefully, it'll be fully functioning again in 2 months time or so.
This is also the reason I don't update that much, I'm frankly not able to do much, haha... It's getting frustrating and I've lost the patience, but this is how it is.

BUT, I'm getting better and better at drawing with my left hand!
Here's some of the drawings I've made,
(look at those fucked up eyes, staring into your soul) 
I've also tried to experiment a bit,
And I made a "re-design" of the book cover for Stephen Kings "CELL" (PULS is the Danish title), with a ballpoint-pen and a marker,
Last, but not least, we've made dreamboards in school, but I might have taken too much artistic liberty with it, instead of just plastering it with stereotypic "dreams",
My teacher didn't think I took the project seriously and asked "if my future would have a big black background?", so I had to re-do some things.
I didn't want to ruin it completely, though, especially when there was a meaning behind the background. Well, I'll be able to defend my ideas and thought Thursday!
This is the ruined version,
