An Old One

This is an old "academic-style" drawing that I made some two years ago at the university.
I'm about to attend the life-drawing class again. Life drawing is mandatory only in the first two years, but I think it could do good. I'm freaked out tho. Haven't drawn for a year and a half or so.

In the Kitchen: Broccoli Tomato Thing

The other day I made this broccoli thing for myself. This was something I just improvised in a kind of a use-what-you-have way, and it turned out to be delicious.
I sautéed some broccoli in a little olive oil, and after that I added some canned tomatoes, salt, black pepper, nutmeg and a bit of garlic. Then I added a whole egg, sitrred it, and added some blue cheese, stirred it a few times again, and it was ready. And I liked it a lot. The broccoli still remained crunchy, which was far from being a problem to me.

New Aquisition: Mini Playing Cards

I wanted to buy these since Christmas.
I don't want to play with them... I'll just set them aside, and I'm going to use them for some DIY projects like making a necklace, brooch or buttons maybe. They would make very interesting buttons I guess.
