I was extremely interested in making comics but I never knew what to make them about. I found them extremely hard to make but was willing to learn how to make them, but I needed a topic or a theme.

In school, we studied a poet Carol Ann Dufy and for the longest time, a certain poem, "Salome" was stuck in my head, so I decided to make it into a comic.

I first drew it our traditionally in watercolour, but then I translated it into digital illustrations as for I wanted to learn and practice digital painting.

With the digital drawing arose a small problem, I struggled with hand-eye coordination and this had not turned out exactly the way I wanted.

I also made a small comic strip about Judo and the next morning after practice. 

Later, I started to take pay more attention to the colour theory and figure drawing (although I still struggle with some bits). I looked closely into developing my own style. And I want to do more original comic strips in the future.

One of the ideas for the comic panel was "Life with my sister". I started out the planning in my sketchbook, but had never finished it.
