It's Pico Day at NG y'all! Well it was. Recently. Saturday. The first.
Usually I'd hang around online and celebrate.
This year I took a train trip to Arboga instead.
Voted via my phone. Started voting via computer as usual and almost missed the train; had to catch up with the rest during transit.
Well not really. Probably had ten minutes to go. Stressed though.
Didn't turn out as big a Pico Day celebration as it usually is for me but I had a good time away anyway. First real vacation in a long time. Relaxed like it was a full weekend, walked around mostly suitably desolate streets (twas the day after Walpurgis Night) by the canal, soaked in the sun, smote some ice cream, had a pizza (five pizzerias and one sushi restaurant defied the holiday - pretty much everything else was closed) and sipped some sights.
Lots of old architecture. Felt high on life. Came home and stayed up all night and drew the above but didn't post onsite.
Then I woke up on Sunday feeling unusually drained and apathetic, but that's another matter for another post and banter.
I've caught up a bit on these celebrations since though! Alternative version of the artwork above (which is btw also a partial work in progress for another collaboration that unfortunately didn't make the Pico Day deadline) here, and check out this little thing! Backstory here. Cheers and thanks and much obliged @Garnet-Frost for that homage.
Hope y'all had a good weekend.
