Sketchbook drawings

I usually don't give titles to my drawings, but the drawings below are titled. The titles came from my personal history and relate a story / an event that I experienced. When I start to draw, I begin without any preconceived ideas. Once the process has begun there's no stopping. In daily life I have other chores that require my attention - then I have to stop drawing, if I'm in the middle of it. It is unbearable to have to stop making marks. Drawing is one of the things that I am very passionate about.
