Taking it personally.

Ok, my office just turned slighty more personal today - I am sure James amznbert</lj> will approve. :) I used to have copies of Keith Haring paintings on my the wall. I made them, because they were easy to "reproduce". Now they're hanging in my bedroom and that big white wall somehow annoyed me. So I brought two of my "early works", car drawings - my main obsession and preoccupation and mania from when I was 3, 4, 5? 'till 1994 when I all of a sudden just dropped all the pencils and pens and colours and all. I might tell you one day why that happened.

Anyway: on the left is my idea of a Ferrari from 1994 and Camargue on the left is just a variation on endless SUV theme. I put some of the drawing in the Design part of my old webpage, too. By the way. All "my" cars had a brand name. Of course it was Paterson, the name that really goes a long way back with me. And I also had a logo that developed throught the year - well, in 15-20 years we need some changes, right?

Paterson... Here's the story that goes with it - I think I might have posted the link to it already, but HEY! there's never enough of history, right? So, it's not Pater-Son, meaning I am not daddy chaser which does disappoint some video chat daddies quite often. LOL

I envy you your complex childhood! My brother and my male cousins played with me only when we were very little, and the neightbourhood boys were such terrible bullies! And then my mother took care that I spent my adolescence in an all-femile environment, I wasn't even allowed to invite boys to my birthday parties. And the boys at highschool were/still are bastards.

I remember Blake's 7, that series surprsingly made its way to my then almost-Soviet country. You playing Cally? Well, she wasn't especially FEMININE, LOL! By the way, I remember playing a MALE Indian chief or something who was in love in one of the girls in the company... but this had no influence on my sexual orientation, LOL LOL LOL

I LOVE your Personal Wall! :)

Well.... I was a complex child, I'd say. I always prefered to live in my "inner world" and it was a good place, I must say.

And Blake's 7 are still amazing - I guess because I've watched the series in years of first personality forming. :)

Yes, I like my personal wall, too, I must say! :)

THANKS!

Yes, I did it. I was drawing like mad for some 20 years and then just stopped.
