Listening to People Through My Eyes

Portrait sketches made in busses mix as one
in the likeness of Sofi Oksanen :D
I read tales all over people’s faces, their lives through the placement of the lines on their faces. Have they come due excess worry or through multiple bursts of laughter?

The faces start telling me stories. They tell me of life and love, caring and standing up for yourself. Sometimes the stories are of tired warriors defeating foes, imaginative or real. Usually the faces keep that hidden and I make it up.

People tell stories without even realising it themselves.Maybe they’re tales they’ve forgotten themselves or remember daily.

So, I listen to your story with my eyes. I try not to stare but sometimes it’s difficult since I find so much beauty in the way you are. Your face seduce me to tell a story of a life I’ve never witnessed.

Light and colors to all the beautiful faces!

Lightning-Glare for the Win!

Jellies love making faces too. And kissing!
I have this game with a friend of mine. We make funny faces at each other in public. The winner is the one who can stand longer without cracking at the other's expression. (Side note: this hobby keeps anyone super young. I feel approximately five years old while indulging in it!)

My friend has this lightning glare that always just cracks me up! In making faces and pictures it's all about your own style. You can be caotic, organized or anything in between. I want to draw lightning-gleer-drawings and tell silly stories that make you smile.

Hope you enjoy the ride with me! You can follow me here on Blogger and also on Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram and Deviantart. Soon you can catch me on You Tube too!

Light and colors!
