Kesbet (kesbet tree) is a holy tree mentioned in the ancient Egyptian texts. According to the inscriptions in the Theban temple, under kesbet tree Nut (goddess of the sky) bore Osiris (god of the afterlife). This fact can be interpreted as the tree itself gave birth to the god. There is not much more to say about the tree, except it's fruits were used for skin problems. Till now, kesbet tree remains unidentified.

I'm a Polish girl who started drawing in black and white when was about 12. For years it was my one-and-only way of expressing myself, but I wanted to keep it hidden. So I choose different path of life which, unexpectedly made me stop drawing. Yet, as any other form of art, drawing isn't something one can forget how to do... I've joined dA for an inspiration and found much more than expected - freedom of being myself, a creator.

I love details, complex, black and white drawings spreading an idea, having a story to tell. In my world of art, everything matters...

Recently (in 2016), I've switched into digital. I'm supporting Open Source software. My whole working pipeline is based on Krita running on my Linux Ubuntu machine.

If you wish to contact me...

P.S. I'm here every Saturday.

Hello there! How are you? 

Officially, we have fall now, and we all now what it means for an artist :)

You've noticed I started to upload some writing / poems. I hope you don't mind it :) Yes, yes, some of you like it, which makes me happy and very, very proud :) Thank you so much! Also, expect more, because writing takes me way less time than drawing. So, if I want to create something fast, I write. Time is also a major factor why I didn't upload any very detailed black and white piece for months. With age I'm more and more impatient, and since I like having a general idea what I would like to draw before I even start, it is how it is.

I've just upload another funny drawing to celebrate 100 watchers mile stone, and yes I know, I'm a bit late... It is one of those quick drawings that take me ~7 hours from sketch till the finished piece. Again, time issue was the cause why I decided to draw it. Alternative would be not to draw at all.

I'm trying to create a schedule, something like a weekly routine, which I would like to hold on to. I've noticed I spend to much time on something I shouldn't, and forget about something more important. I bet most of you have the same problem :) Procrastination, the evil of our times... I've decided to reserved only one day per week for dA and drawing in general - Saturday. At least till the end of this year. Does it mean I will be less active? Not at all, I will just dedicate a whole day for something I was doing through out the whole week :) Also, knowing when I'm here will be easier for you to be sure when you can expect my reply, and when to catch me 'live' :) And since I like to end my day knowing I've done / finished something, expect more frequent uploads. Whether it will be a journal entry, a poem or a drawing ;) My dear, time to get organized!

Feel free to comment this entry. Let me know how you handle your procrastination / time issues :)

Have a great weekend! And see you next Saturday!

Love you all, those young and a bit older ;) 

P.S. My color piece has now more faves than my best black and white one - check for yourself - Memory and The Promise.
P.S. 2 My top viewed piece is not a drawing, but a poem - Loneliness of Stars (>2000)! Surprise, surprise :)

I am very grateful to you for the favorite! Good luck with the' Blue Leaf' contest!Just curious- what is your favorite color and, when you do more color work, will you work mostly in your favorite color or are you going to try many other colors- so far it seems that blue or green are your favorites!

Thank you so very much for the favorite! Do you also feel hunger in your dreams? And if you do eat- can you taste the food?
