just something to destress that's been floating in my head, finland & sweden
i tried to draw a little looser and it was heaps of fun even if it's not noticeable haha! and i really love picking colours ahh

or maybe it's just because anything seems like a carnival compared to studying orz so close yet so far

i've pretty much finished all my classes ever..! scary
i'm getting really emotional about the end of school h-haha damnit..

yeah, a lot of countries tend to try to censor the darker parts of their history. but i mean, history is there to be learnt from, right? if we cover up our past errors then the chance they'll recur is so much higher. and we can learn from the errors of other countries too, so it creates even more of a bubble when international history is largely excluded from the general curriculum.

Unfortunately that is true, I mean in school I am really only taught history pertaining to America and what happened. Though I am really interested in Scandinavian and Western European history. That is why I have so many history books, I read them more for other countries' histories then American history, and beside people want to cut out all the 'bad' parts of history in education when it is being taught, about American history. I'm like... every country has had something happen in its history that it is not proud of... but still needs to be taught.

Thank you so much! That may have been a subconscious influence; it's definitely a really interesting war but unfortunately many countries only teach history relating directly to their own, so until that changes it will probably continue to be relatively obscure.

I just love this picture! It kinda reminds me of the winter war, with Finland's outfit. That was one of my favorite wars, its a shame that it isn't that well known... anyways! Great work! I love it!
