Photoshop + Wacom Intuos 5

Writing, drawing and painting are great tools of meditation for me, besides being the best channels to express myself, they help me fighting my frustrations and inner demons. Sometimes I like to do dark, gritty fanstasy or sci-fi, some others I just do something totally different, lighthearted – like the illustration above.

This has been a very rough year for me so far. Perhaps the best positive was creating the book cover for the Black Wind’s Whispers, it was good fun. Anyway, I got myself a Wacom Intuos 5 (which is fantastic) and I decided to get in touch with my inner child. The little person in me that is still running on hills of clouds chasing dragons. For him the dreams are not yet shattered, he can listen to the tales of the mountains, he can sing the songs of the sea in a stormy night, he can dance with fiery valkyries to the tunes of the old gods. He can make me remember the whys and hows and show me the right path. I should listen to him more often. When I grow up I want to be like him.
