Occasionally I’ve been sketching a bit as a kind of self help against stress and depression. Today (actually yesterday since it’s past midnight) I decided to upload my latest sketches onto a deviant art page, and decided to look for some of my older ones and upload them too. I’m not sure how much I’ll talk about any potential meaning behind the art here, part of the fun of looking at art is coming up with your own meaning after all.

Letting sevral hundred people share the same acount, before acounts where introduced). I installed an app that lets me donate ad revenue the site gets from the ads, you might be able to see the ads in the picture. In the spirit of my previous blog post I decided to share this with you in hopes that it causes us to do more good, in an very easy way that doesn’t really take any effort. For the humanitarian that is also kind of lazy. To make this into at least something resembling an blog post instead of just a shameless commercial I’ll now try to justify why I prioritise certain causes slightly (although not by much) over other causes.
