the world of light

another drawing, a newer one


i know nothing about cyrillic/slavic languages. at best i know bits and pieces of the cyrillic alphabet and their roman cousins, but thats about as far as it goes. i do however think it is beautiful and that they are interesting to draw and compare. i was doodling today and saw these letters on a poster in a magazine. so i copied them down, feeling my way around the foreign shapes and imagining what they mean. maybe someone could tell me? its probably something really mundane, so for now ill pretend that its not.

On the topic of languages, how funny is the the word yacht. Reads like a good candidate for a swear word or some sort of nice onomatpoeia or something you would yell out of your window when you are happy.

listen to turbonegro! deathpunk!

pull a diamond from your sleep

a photo from germany, of my gran's house.
it's on a small hill above a town called Handzell,
about 30 km out of Augsburg.
She lives alone in this house, she's 92, which her parents built
just before the war as a weekend getaway place, which
became a forest cafe (Wald Kafe) and later when the bombing
in Augsburg got intense they moved out here. It's beautiful here,
one of, if not my favourite place in the whole wide world that
I have seen so far. I want to live here one day
