"Bosom friends"

Long. time. no. see!!!

First off, I got hired by a language school here in Prague. But before that, I was busy studying and doing some teaching practice for the course, looking for a flat, looking for what I needed in the flat such as cooking pots, etc., and looking for a job -- it was a rollercoaster ride for sure!

Thankfully I feel a bit settled now, so lately I've teaching English as my day job. I really have to manage my budget well, but I'm grateful that I'm able to enjoy some things here. For instance, I live close to a park, so it feels really nice to take my morning walks there and reconnect with nature.

Well, the goal is to stay here for one year, absorb as much artistic inspiration as I can and create art while supporting myself through teaching, and see if I like it.

Lately, I've also been feeling inspired and have been drawing more consistently.

Like this Edwardian-era inspired drawing (see above), which I call "Bosom Friends". Haha.

I guess it's working^^.

Aside from Portrait of a Lady on Fire, you also into gay art inspired by other historical periods? Let me know!
