Dream alarm clock

Ritu’s post Dark mornings and our talk in the comments there made me do this drawing.


What do you say about such alarm clock?

I wish I had one like that some days. But not every day. I like my work and I actually like early mornings too. But the time between sleep and awake are so nice so it takes time for me to like the awake state.

Check your links in your profile 

This is an old post that I repost now and then. Some of you that press like button on my posts have blind links in your profile. When I want to check your blog by clicking the like notification I don’t find your blog! 

It don’t intend to start a how you blog section on this art blog, but I want to say this.

Check your link settings in your profile. Some of you have old links that doesn’t exists anymore. If you like one of my posts, then you show up in my notifications, from there I can reach your blog if you have a link that works. If you have an old link I end up with a wp message about links not leading anywhere any longer.

So before you complain about not having enough visitors, views, followers, likes and comments. Check your profile settings. People may actually not find your blog if you’ve got the wrong link in your profile/gravatar.

You find the settings here

  

  
And you check out which links you have in the settings here

  
You can try if your settings are ok by clicking your gravatar in any comment you made to see if that click leads you to your blog.

Have a great blogging day!

Wroom or Thunk?

That’s the question that pops up in my head when I read Dannys post and Jims post.

Is it all about speed? Or should we slow down and look up?

Check out their posts and then you get why I did this drawing.


Very often the comments from you five me drawing ideas when it starts to get weird or funny.

Like this from Jims post.

How to link to another blog

One of my Swedish blog friends, Anna at intefangordetdet made me aware of that not everyone of us knows how to link to another blog. 

So I’m trying to explain how I do it. Maybe there’s better ways to do it. And if you know how, please tell the rest of us. By leaving a comment or make your own how to link post and leave that link in the comments.

First find out the link address you want to use. I read blogs through wp app. I do like this from there:


I open the post in the browser, safari or any other browser you use is fine.


Then I press the field where the webb address is showing. The copy/paste buttons appears and I press copy. I then get the link address

https://cityjackdaw.wordpress.com/2017/03/23/so-tonights-conversation/
The copy of the link doesn’t show anywhere but it is there in between commandos.

After copying the linkaddress I go back to wp app and create a post. I mark the words I want to connect with a link. And then I press the link symbol.


I then paste the link address I copied into the url space and then I press the paste button.


After that I finish my post writing and press publish when I’m ready.

I hope this can help you a bit. As Danny always says “Sharing is caring”. By using linkbacks to other blogs you help other bloggers to get new readers and your linkback will show up in their comments field, so you will be visible on another blog and you get the chance to find new readers. A win win situation 🙂

Happy blogging!

Sleepwalking in a hammock

A conversation with Andy from City Jack daw come to be about sleepwalking.

He said something about difficulties to sleepwalk in a hammock.

Those words immediately made a picture in my weird head.

 

It can’t be easy to rise up and sleep walk in a hammock. Have you tried?

Have a great day all of you!

The station agent

Jim talking about quiet time as a good thing and I totally agree.

I have a favorite movie (well actually I have more favourite movies, but this is one of them) that really captures the good feeling of quiet time.

If you’re a extrovert person not liking quiet time you will think this movie stinks and are just so boring. If you’re an introvert quiet time liker you may like this film. You will immediately understand the two out of three main characters situation. Check out The station agent if you haven’t seen it.

If you know about other movies like this one, please tell us in the comments 🙂

Existentialism in micro universe

Found an old post that I think is still a funny one, just look at the drawings 🙂
I read two posts and the comments in them

Men and Women As Friends
https://emma75love.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/men-and-women-as-friends/

i’m gonna talk about sex… | Jdawgswords
https://jdawgswords.wordpress.com/2015/10/13/im-gonna-talk-about-sex/

that reminded me of a drawing I did a couple of years ago from a script I wrote to my local theatre friends back then.

I have translated the talking in the drawing, so I hope you can understand what the story is about.
I did a short visit in micro universe and discovered that there seems to be some existentialism thinking there too 😉

Arik Brauer

  
I found an old exhibition poster from a gallery i Trosa that used to show great art everytime they opened their doors for people to come and visit.

This poster tells about the time the artist Arik Brauer showed his art in the Trosa Kvarn Gallery and for the first time in Sweden. It was great paintings to see.

I don’t remember them specific, there were lots of good paitings during the years in that gallery and I was young and didn’t know much of all painter names.
I just thought the art at the gallery always was so inspiring.

Here you can see some of his work.

Painting/drawing challenge

At the latest session my painters friends and I had we did interpretations of this:

  
How would your interpretation look like if you do a painting or drawing out of this?
Use your imagination and go for it.

Mine look like this right now. I hadn’t time to color it in, so it’s a work in progress.

  
If you do a drawing or a painting, please show us in a post on your blog and if you like, link back to this post, so people can find your version.

I can also reblog your post if you like.

Good luck with your art! You don’t have to be an artist to do this. Just do something that might leads back to the balloon man in the chair 🙂

The balloon man is made by Johan Hoflund. You can see his artwork at www.johanhoflund.se and on fb an insta.
