garden update

Published by:

I felt like showing my little garden on my blog! The “garden” is in the window and on the balcony. This year I got a lot of snow peas from a store that gave away free plants if you bought certain things.

Dill always grows well in my window and the snow peas did pretty well too. I did have to cut them a bit to remove dead parts.

I was surprised these pepper seeds would actually work! I just used seeds from a regular pepper that was in some package of food.

Just some plants I have outside, I recently sowed some raddish.

These pots have three attempts at growing an apple tree and an acacia.

3/31 favourite quote and a new product

Published by:

Today’s item for the blog challenge was my favourite quote. I like many quotes, but my current favourite is by Walt Disney, which is:

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”

It motivated me to start this website actually!

Anyway, I made a new product for my store, it is a hand-drawn card. This lovely owl card is up for sale for just 5 euros. It is completely hand drawn and comes with a matching orange envelope.
The card looks like this:

I am quite proud of it, if I do say so myself. Please click on the image to go to my web shop.

2/31 20 facts about me

Published by:

Day 2 of the blog challenge is posting 20 facts about me. I made a list! Let’s start…

1. I am 1.67 m tall (quite short actually)
2. I am trying to learn to write with my left hand.
3. I tried learning Russian, but it is hard to combine it with all my other activities. I still love the language and at least I can read the letters. ^^;
4. I am a night owl really.
5. In the past I always wanted to live in the city. Now I start appreciating having more space and living somewhere rural. But I still hate travelling so I guess I will stay here.
6. I do not have a driver’s license and this comic shows why:

7. I used to be a fan of Linkin Park.
8. I have trouble falling asleep, especially with Daylight Savings Time.
9. I keep dwarf hamsters as a pet since I was 10. My last hamster was Pjotr, the hamster from the comic!
10. My favourite Disney movie is Treasure Planet.

1/31 Introduction and a photo

Published by:

photo

Hello everybody! I wanted to make more personal blog posts, so this website becomes more than a portfolio. I wanted to start with the 31 day blog challenge (OK I am not sure if I can post every day, but we will see…) and the first assignment was introduction and a picture of myself. As you can see I picked a picture that was open in Photoshop. I am not really into photography, so I like adding a bit of Photoshop.

The introduction

I am Susanne, also known as Sushy on the internet. Currently I am 27 years old and soon (at the end of the month) I will be 28. I am a freelance illustrator and comic artist. As you may already know, I love drawing. Sometimes I like it a bit too much so I had to be treated by a physiologist. I love animals (I used to have a Russian dwarf hamster), I read and sometimes I watch tv. I am not that great with typing long stories, so I probably forgot a few things in this introduction. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment.
