One year ago.
I sat down.
Started this blog.
I wrote.
I drew.
I painted.
I was surprised.
That I had so much to say.
And even more surprised
that someone was listening.
Thank you.
In honor of this, a giveaway.
Choose a print from my shop that you would like to have and leave a comment with the title. On Monday March 8 I will draw the name of the winner.


  1. :) can't resist this one...
    Making Pictures- I love the color, the sentiment and I like that I can relate to her. She seems breezy and carefree... lighthearted and pensive. I think finding pictures in clouds is one of the best forms of escapism...

  2. Congratulations on your year of blogging. It is always a delight to see your posts, your work is beautifully sensitive and thoughtful. I love it. It is difficult to chose a piece, so I won't. Wishing you all the best.

  3. congrats on a year of blogging~ i love to pop in here + see what you are making and how you are going.
    i love allof your prints! if i had to chose just one, i'd say 'holding on'.
    thanks for the giveaway :)

  4. Happy Blogbirthday!
    I have been sitting here watching Your pieces in the shop over and over again. It´s hard to chose ´cause they all have acces to different feelings inside of me.
    Hm, I´ll say "heading home"
    and then I have to say "carry".

  5. I'll choose "Garden", but it wasn't an easy choice!
    Congrats on your Blog Anniversary!

  6. i'm so glad you started a blog, purely for selfish reasons - it's been a joy getting to know you and your work! i love every single drawing you create, but i'll stay out of the giveaway because i own one of your gorgeous pieces already and would like someone else to have one too. just wanted to say thanks for continuing to share your world with us.

  7. Hi ARis,
    You have got me drawing again. Thank you for that.Congratulations on 1 year blogging, it is quite amazing to discover that actually we all have something to say and share isn't it? I was happy to see that you opened your shop and my favourite print is 'Pause' because that's exactly what I am going to do in a little while. Taking a pause to try chasing a dream.

  8. I think all of your prints are lovely and so had trouble choosing! I love 'Carry' but also 'Heading Home' so if I was lucky enough to win then it would be one of those two! Congratulations on your year of blogging!

  9. Making pictures.. I love the harmonica book you are making!

  10. Congratulation!
    Isn't it weird how blogging becomes a part of your life? It has given me a lot in way I couldn't foresee. Now both you and me are part of two art projects thanks to blogging. And I have one of your art pieces in my home... I look at it every day.

    ..I started my blogging 3 years ago(- I just had to check - it was really 3 years ago!)How time flies!

  11. congratulations! i do so enjoy your work. i find your creatures very haunting and familiar at the same time. kudos!

  12. i was hesitating to enter the giveaway, since i already have one of your prints (which i love!). but i cannot help it, i must tell you, that i was so much in doubt when buying, cause i really liked the "pause" print too. but hey, all your prints are awesome :)

  13. You are someone from my past who continues to inspire me today. These days, I love your multimedia blog. But I also remember being in high school and just watching you doodle your way through class. I still carry around images of those alien faces and their big big eyes. Back then I appreciated your talent and today I am more than impressed with your dedication to continue your artwork while working and raising a beautiful family. For this reason, I might choose "Past" if I were to win this great giveaway; however, I know we also have a common current hobby, and that is gardening. So, if I win, I choose "Garden."
