I’ve watched too much FRIENDS lately. I’ve been a fan since 2002, when I sat in my room watching episodes for days at a time. In this video episode: How to bring out the contrast in an image, trace the shadows and attach a layer to a bottom layer to colour the bottom layer in.
So here is a picture of Rachel and Ross kissing. Very romantic. I’ve been on a romantic drawing tour lately.
I went to Utrecht today, did some coffees and a hamburger with a friend, bought some brushes, I’m a happy man.
Also reading Ramit Sethi‘s I Will Teach You To Be Rich, who convinced me to automate my finances, cut back on the things I don’t really love (like smoking) and spend on the things I do love (like art and coffee with friends). He liked my Instagram photo of the book, so I’m “playing with the big boys” now.
Met my mom in the train back to home. It was a happy coincidence.
About quitting smoking: the mother of a friend of mine died of lung cancer, which makes quitting smoking more urgent. Not quite there yet, but cutting back, so that’s something of an improvement. I did do some excercise to balance it out.
