First sketch in my new studio...



It has been a few kind of hectic and unstable weeks lately, but ending well as I found a new studio! 
I had to move, as my daughter is back to stay for a while and I had borrowed her room the the last four years. After some time searching with uncertain feelings about the whole thing, I finally found a nice space. This was just in time for my daughter's arrival, which meant I had to sort all my stuff and throw tons of old and unnecessary material. I had to prepare my new studio and also my daughters room into something presentable, clean and functional.
Finally, even if it's just freshly finished, I'm happy how it turned out. An ideal solution actually. I have a space I share with a others for the weekdays I need. 
Now I "only" have to get used to "go to work", to have more rigid working hours and to make it a clear priority. It's not the same to work from home, because then you have the feeling that work and daily life mixes together and you're never "off" or "on". I think it might have some repercussions on my family and household, but that will have to do. Later I will see the effect it will have on me and my working flow, if there will be any improvement. For now I'm just a little nervous, but soon I think I'll be used to the idea of this new system. 
Today I inaugurated my new studio with a few drawings and this small sketch which was also to try out a new sketchbook I just found. I'll bring it with me for the next two weeks, when I'm going to visit my sister in Sweden. I just pray for a few sunny days there, as nothing is like a Swedish summer! 
My plan is to come up with more news soon...
