Egg Painting Time

Mr Fox and Mr Mouse got together to paint some more Easter eggs. Who else has been painting eggs this year?

If you are too lazy like me to paint eggs how about making your own Mr Fox Easter print instead?

You can also get this image as high resolution file to print with different background on my Ko-fi page.

Happy Easter.

Easter Fox

Easter weekend is coming up. I haven´t been painting Easter eggs in years. But I got inspired to draw Mr Fox painting eggs.

Are you still looking for Easter cards or wrapping paper or a little present? I put the image of little Mr Fox on Ko-fi as a high resolution image with different background colors for you to download, so you can print your own cards for friends or family.

Have a happy Easter weekend! I for my part will be out hiking in the sun.

Book Release!

After several edits I am happy and proud to announce that my/our first children´s book is available to order!

With my friend Norbert, who wrote the story, we have been working on it for a while now and are happy to finally have the print version ready!

The story is about two best friends that find out how long a working week can be! A week at work can often feel very long and sometimes, not everyone is happy with it. In the end though, it pays to be patient.… and Kobbi, the little pug, is very patient.

Learn more about the book here or go straight to Amazon to order it.

Spot-billed Pelican

Last but not least the Spot-billed pelicans who got his name because of the spots on his bill….

There are 8 living different pelican species today. This pelican can be found in southern Asia from southern Pakistan across India east to Indonesia. It is a bird of large inland and coastal waters, especially large lakes.

Lemon Pool Party

Thank you everyone for all you lovely messages. It means a lot. ❤ I am not a person to publicly put my feelings out there but it happened rather spontaneously.

My sister was very open during the last 2 years (since we found out), about the damage our mother – a covert narcissists – has caused, and I am very grateful to my sister that she never held back. She would tell people about it whether it was appropriate or not. She didn´t care, and she is right. Just creating a bit of awareness that this personality disorder exists is a first step and might help others.

Covert narcissists can be way more damaging and dangerous than open ones, as it is more difficult to spot them. It took me 10 years to figure it out and certainly didn´t come easy. But once you see through their game, you cannot believe how they could have fooled you for so long, as their acting skills can be described as horrendous at best.

I know I am not alone with this. And there are a lot of capybaras part of the lemon pool party.

To My Sister

When life gives you lemons….

This whole thing started as a sarcastic joke. Now I can find out what you do when life covers you in lemons.

Last week I lost my sister. She hated it when I called her little sister. She always made a point that she was 2 cm taller than I. She was the strongest person I knew and always managed to pick herself up no matter how terrible life was to her. She always told me she is the stronger one and I agreed. She always ended up comforting me despite she being the one that was the one that needed help and comfort. Life gave her a lot of lemons.

She did not deserve any of the things she had to suffer through from epilepsy to a Narcissistic mother which is the source of all evil in our lives. Persons with covert narcissistic personality disorder are pure evil and take lives as my best friend had to experience last year as well. Her brother was encouraged to drink himself to death by his narcissistic wife over the course of 6 months. All we can do now is spread awareness about the evils of covert narcissists.

I guess life is not fair and we can only learn how to cope with it. This is for you taller sister, I love you and I will miss you terribly.
