and plans for 2018
2017 began as many others, with a wish to accomplish a goal within the next 365 days. The goal was to focus extra much on the writing and have as much as finished before the end of that year.
With the new year ahead and the old behind me, it begs the question: did i reach my goal?
In many ways yes. A total of 2 chapters where finished for The Story Of Dagmar, and a lot of work done on Elias & The Highspeed train. This means that i'm officially halfway done with the writing at this point.
Therefore my goal in 2018 is to write as much as possible so that the writing can be done by late 2018/early 2019. How long the following illustrations work will take to make, i don't know at this point.
Speaking of illustrations, i've been spending some time in 2017 on a new artstyle.
This new artstyle has proven to be extra detailed compared to the old one, and by experimenting further i've come up with a result that i can be satisfied with.
All it all, 2017 was in many ways the year where many goals were reached.
On the other projects of mine in 2017 there was a few where i didn't reach my goals. Portrait of a Danish loco's first episode was due in the summer of 2017, but due to various reasons i didn't make it. I do however wish it to be possible to accomplish in 2018.
A thing i've done for som time now, and which has proven to give joy to me and the reciever is gifts in the form of drawings. This year i made a portrait of two locomotives of the, Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway in southern England where the railway operates trains in 1/3 scale.
The railway thanked me with a formal letter and if you're lucky, you might see it if you visit the railway.
I'm currently working on a gift for a railway back home, but who it's for you'll have to wait in order to find out.
Sadly the last half of 2017 meant that i was heavily delayed and even with this post feel like writing in the last minute.
I hope however, that 2018 will be the year of many accomplishments, both for this series and my series called A year of trainspotting, where i show of the pictures i've taken along the danish railways throughout the year.
With all that to look forward to and more, I wish you a happy new year and a happy 2018!
