Study Abroad

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 19, 2015, 2:24 PM


Here's an update on my life since I just realised I haven't written  anything on DA for quite some time. 

I'm currently living in England guys! I'm studying observational drawing, character animation and filmmaking as an exchange student in Bradford. But since I'm only staying here for one term it means I'll be going back to Sweden in December/January.

Also, as you might have noticed already, I've pretty much stopped visiting this website. If you want to catch up with what I'm doing and what I'm drawing you should go follow me on Tumblr!

It's  ThatsRatherPeculiar 

If you haven't joined Tumblr yet you really should.
Or shouldn't, depending on how much time you're already spending on the internet..Cough

Instagram users!!

Follow me on Instagram for sketches and other art stuff!
I'm sketching a lot these days but never take time to color anything. (Or upload it here on DA) Since I'm very active on Instagram nowadays I thought it would be a good idea to make an account where I upload my sketches etc (mostly yogscast related stuff and other things I'm currently into)

So go follow ratherpeculiart on Instagram!! :aww:

Hello everybody, how are you doing? I'm just fine, living a typical student life. I recently moved to my very own apartment which is a big adjustment but very exiting and fun as well. :aww:
Rarely got the time to draw nowadays which is a shame.. I post pictures on instagram of sketches and doodles though so if you have a user there, follow me! "Fooolloow meee!"

I'm "thatsratherpeculiar"

Oh, and one more thing! I just uploaded my first video on Youtube :XD:
My class is making an Advent Calendar and today was my turn to make something .. funny and creative. 
I'll leave a link to it here -> www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2-D9N…

Hello guys! :iconwavesplz:

Know what? I got into University! :happybounce:

Well the course started two weeks ago, I just haven't had time to write this until now. (OK to be honest I've just been to lazy)

 

The course is called digital media production (DMP for short) and it is awesome! We'll be creating 3D sculptures, animations, videogames and all kinds of fun things! We had our first seminar today where we spoke about "games and play" and "Production Cultures". Basically what we did was we sat for an hour talking about videogames, 3D movies at the cinema and Youtubers.

I know there'll be lots of writing and other boring stuff too but I'm really looking forward to these next three years! :happycry:




  • Listening to: Wake Me Up - Avicii
  • Reading: The New Media Handbook :P

(I should have written this weeks ago)
Hello the people on DA! :iconcocoloveplz:

Finally summer! Finally vacation! Finally time to relax and do fun stuff!! :icondweebdanceplz:

I've graduated from high school and it feels amazing (and a bit scary to be honest)
I'll miss seeing my friends every day.. and some of the teachers. And the feeling of security to know what I'm doing with my life.

Currently I'm just waiting to get an answer from the university.. to see if I have entered any of the courses I applied for. *fingers crossed*


Ah well. Anyway! Summer's here people! Let's enjoy it to it's fullest!!! :iconyaayplz:

What I really really want

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 27, 2013, 10:57 AM


Hello people! :iconwaving-plz:

I really, really want to go to a convention!!
We won't make it to Närcon this year.... But we're (sort of) planning to go to Kawaiicon in august.
It would be great to go as the Yogscast again.  :giggle:

Anybody else who are planning to go to a convention this year? (:

Very important, please read.

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 17, 2013, 1:33 PM


Hello everyone!
I've got some pretty depressing and personal things to tell you so …prepare yourselves.

I'm sorry but this is important and I want you to read this.


First of all, I want to thank you. Thank you for something you don't even know you've done. But it will be explained in this text.

As you all probably know, life has its ups and downs. Sometimes it gives you lemons, sometimes you go through really tough times and sometimes the unthinkable happen and you don't even know if you are strong enough to survive it.

For me and my family this year has been very, very though.

Today it's been a year since my stepfather died.

When someone really close to you passes away, it's hard to accept it and even harder to move on. But when a person you love. A person you trust chooses to take his/her own life, it's indescribable. You can't even think about moving on. You are left with so many questions and feelings you can hardly think straight.

But one thing is certain: life will never be the same again.

Now you can probably guess why this year has been tough.
But
I'm not writing this to make you depressed or to get attention or something like that.

I'm writing this so that you can understand why I want to thank you.

Because even though this year has been hard I've had some things that have helped me through.
Apart from the great support I've had from some incredible people, my wonderful friends and my parents for example, YOU people here on DeviantArt have helped me a lot as well. You see, being able to do one of the things I love most, draw, and then share it with you and get all the positive feedback! I mean all the support and nice comments you have given me throughout the year. I don't think you understand how much it means to me. First thing in the morning, every day after uploading a new drawing, I've looked through the new comments and :+fav:s and it always cheers me up.

You guys keep making me happy every time I log on and I can't thank you enough! :aww:


Today it's been a year since my stepdad died. Throughout the year I've learned that even though terrible things happen life goes on.
I'm strong in mind and heart.
But I have survived thanks to my family, friends and You. :heart:

^v^

Finally Spring break! (or Easter break, Påsklov as we say in Sweden) I've been away for a week but now I'm home and ..unscheduled ..till tuesday next week. :aww:
Hopefully, I'm going to make some new fan art one of the upcoming days!


So uh, what else?

Did you fool anyone or got fooled on the 1st April?
Me? Well I forgot about it.. as usual.

I've had a whole week to rest and you know, do stuff.
I haven't done anything. Not finished any schoolwork.
I'm not refreshed. I need at least one more week to sleep and eat and get fat, hang out with my cats and do nothing with my life.

Are there any other people out there who too feel like they are totaly unproductive and you know, generally stupid!??

I'm such a loser. :iconmiseryplz: :icongivingupplz:

Hello people!
Guess what?

I'm in Gothenburg! :dummy:

Visiting some relatives.

Traveled by train.
Watched lots of Tekkit episodes.

Well.
That's all.

Hope you are all doing well!
Bye! :aww:


(P.S. I have made several fan art sketches. Soon to be colored.)

So.

Yeah.

Apparently some guy named Zakku Bergman claimed himself being ...me.
Or. Eh, I don't know if that was his intention.

I don't know!!

..What do I even know?

All I know is that my name is not Zakku.

Yogscast uploaded this photo Xephos - Get ready! by RatherPeculiar on their facebook and twitter for those of you who don't know.

Amazing! ..but wrong name guys!

Now people belive I'm a man. A man named Zakku Bergman. Also I've been called Pewdiepie.


I don't even know what to feel about this :iconwthplz:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        UPDATE

So, It was just a misunderstanding! This guy's intention was clearly not to claim himself being me.
But. Yogscast haven't changed their text so it still says Zakku Bergman. :P
