Hi, My name is Mary. I create illustrated videos on the Youtubes, as well as paintings and sketches. What I enjoy most is telling stories (or glimpses of them) and entertaining people. Go forth and enjoy, you beautiful human.

Every day I'm doodle'n.

How unoriginal.  A goal for the new year.  And yes, we're in February now, it's a little late to be talking about new years resolutions.  But hey, I've been keeping up with mine, so YAY! At the last minute I had decided to commit to a daily doodle throughout the entire year of 2014.  I got a few sketchbooks and have been rolling steadily for about a month now.  Making the drawings isn't as difficult as I though.  It's a good way to remind myself that drawing regularly is helpful and necessary, even though I already have that creative job.  It's been a place where I can brainstorm, or flesh out an idea.  Or just a place to relax and let my mind wander somewhere far away from more pressing problems.  

Technically, my challenge only demands that I put a sketch in the physical sketchbook every day.  I make the rules, and I'm gonna make them realistic.  Early on I decided to not promise to upload drawings daily simply because that would make this much more stressful than it should be.  And this is not meant to be stressful in the first place.  This is  supposed to improve my life, not impede.  In the end, I do want all 365 drawings online at my website, and perhaps in other locations.  Instagram has been awesome, as well as Tumblr.  And yes, Deviant Art too.  I know I've fallen behind on my updates here, which is silly.  This is the perfect venue to share art. 

I suppose that's the price we pay for having so many social media options in life.  The only thing to do is keep chugging along.  Keep doodling.  Every day.

I just watched you video on Youtube about How to Ink (…) and I got very inspired.

Last summer I saw an artist that was painting watercolor pictures using ink, and I thought it looked really nice and wanted to try it. But it have been hard to find ink colors here in Sweden and I don't know which supplier you should chose.

Thanks for your video! And I will be watching more of your work. :D

Hi! You don't know me, but I am about to be overly casual and tell you all about my day. I just started my first collage drawing course this fall and today our professor introduced us to India ink. (Flashback: when I first walked into my local craft store with my mile long supply list I reluctantly obeyed and bought the "unless" black ink that I knew I would never use, since I'm a graphite girl.) Back to today: 10 min into his multi technique demo mouth was salivating and temples were throbbing.... WERE HAS INDIA INK BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?! Or were have I been all of its life...? Anywho, came straight home to my beloved YouTube... and the rest is history. Love your videos, giggled till midnight, and recouperated till 10:00. Thanks for sharing your smiles, your passions, and your craziness!

I was on YouTube the other day and I came across one of your painting videos. I watched it all the way through and then another and another, until you appear on my home page now! You are incredibly talented! Keep doing what you're doing! I love how your art makes you come up with your own backstory for the scene. My favorite would probably have to be either your "Raised By Wolves" or "Pick a Pikachu".
