Time to deface some books, folks! *Rubs hands in anticipation* I haven’t had access to my darling books all summer, but now I’m back home and therefore also back to business. :) This time, I decided to go to town on all three books in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy by … Continue reading

Defacing The Lunar Chronicles
Welcome back to Things My Past Self Would Kill Me For Doing! If you’ve seen my previous Defacing-posts (you can find my last one here), you know 2017 was the year I got a new hobby: personalizing my own books (gasp!). For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been working on The Lunar Chronicles by … Continue reading
Defacing My Lady Jane
Defacing time, folks! Today’s victim: My Lady Jane! (Also known as the most hilarious book about Jane Grey currently in existence) In the past, I’ve mostly concentrated on the exterior of the books. For My Lady Jane, though, I wanted to do something about the interior. More precisely, the chapter headers. Now, I actually quite … Continue reading
Defacing Chaos Walking
Aaaand I’m back with more defaced books! :D This time, I want to show you all three books in the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness, one of my all time favourite series.
Remember in my last Defacing Books-post when I said I’d wait a while before drawing/painting on my books again? Yeah, screw that, I have four more defaced books to show you.
Defacing My Books
I have always been the kind of book collector who wants their books in pristine condition. Cracked spines and bent corners give me nightmares, and I would never dream of lending my books out to anyone who doesn’t understand that. So, how did we end up here? Well, I guess it’s as easy as…people change. … Continue reading
That’s right, folks! I have changed background for (I think) the first time since 2013! Okay, so it might not be thaaat different. I went with pretty much the same concept because I still really like it, but I thought it was time to update it a bit. In these past three years I’ve read a … Continue reading
I don’t know why, or what brought it on, but for a couple of weeks now, I’ve been in this really…well, I guess you could call it “creative mood”. I’ve also recently discovered how fun it is to paint mugs (of all things), and as a result, I have a couple of bookish creations I thought … Continue reading
Snep, Snep…Severus Snep
Time for another drawing, this time Alan Rickman as Severus Snape. :) It was a bit uncomfortable staring into those judging, disapproving eyes for hours on end, but other than that he was a lot of fun. ;) I hope you like it. :)
Why So Sirius?
New drawing alert! Yes! After approximately three months, I have once again completed a drawing. Self-five! This time I’ve chosen to draw Gary Oldman as Sirius Black, and I must say I’m quite pleased. :) The eyes are too big (as always), but other than that I have no major complaints (obviously it’s not perfect … Continue reading
Yes! After more than a year, I’ve finally finished another portrait! Wohoo! I actually started making this quite a long time ago, and since I usually need to finish what I start within a week or I’ll leave it forever, I never thought it would ever be complete. But you lost this round, laziness! *Insert mad … Continue reading
…..Merlin I don’t think I’m the only one who has been thinking about Merlin recently. I mean, we all know what happened about this time last year. :( *Sigh* Anyway, I’ve been wanting to draw Colin Morgan for ages, and he was just as fun as I expected. :) Cheekbones, eyes and ears, wohoo! ;) … Continue reading
The Boy Who…I Have Drawn
Hi :) So, yeah, I have a new drawing to show you :). This time the victim was Daniel Radcliffe, as you, hopefully, can see below. :) His big eyes and sharp cheekbones were so much fun, and I think it ended up okay. :)
Yay for Improvement!
Hi! First of all, you might have noticed that the whole “five favourites of the week”-thing didn’t quite work out. I’ve skipped it two weeks in a row now, simply because I didn’t feel like I had enough things significant enough to show you, and I don’t like blogging “just because”. Therefore, I thought I … Continue reading
This Won’t Help Me During the Test Next Week…
….but who cares! Hi strangers on the internet :) I know it has been a while since I last, but here you have a new and fresh portrait, finished only a few hours ago. :) If you didn’t know, this is an actress called Kaya Scodelario (who is playing Theresa in The Maze Runner-movie!), and … Continue reading
That’s what these guys are: Life Ruiners. You know what I did this morning? I was crying. Why? Because I read a quote from The Dream Thieves. Yes, I’m not even exaggerating. I was crying. Real tears. I wanted to read it so bad that I started to cry. I’m a wreck. And it’s all your fault … Continue reading
Rain = New Drawing
When I woke up this morning, it was raining outside. I really needed to clean my room I had nothing to do, so I decided to continue my Game of Thrones – theme and draw one of my favourites in the show: Arya Stark. She was really fun to draw with her big eyes and … Continue reading
Mother of Dragons
First of all, I want to apologise for being very absent recently. I know I have already told you why, but it still feels weird not being able to write reviews, or even read books. I just haven’t had the time or energy :(. That also makes me feel a bit guilty for choosing to … Continue reading
I Just Can’t Seem to Stop
Dear future self, I’m very sorry. I know exactly what you’re going through since past us decided it was a good idea to watch series and read books right before our last physics test, which left me studying like crazy for two days. Miraculously we ended up with a B that time, and I trust … Continue reading
It’s Taking Over My Life!
So, yesterday when I was studying, something strange happened….. Hey, call me old-fashioned, but last time I checked, thermophysics had nothing to do with doodling book titles for several hours. Though it was surprisingly calming and nice, I don’t think it will help my grade very much :/. Do these things ever happen to you? … Continue reading
