There once was a time


...But it was long ago.

A little watercolour picture I made after reading about Sweden’s and Finland’s history. Again.
Finland used to be happy. They used to be the best of friends, but then shit happened and now especially Finland denies having ever liked Sweden.

I always try to make my watercolour paintings look as messy as possible, because no other paint does the messy look as well as watercolours.
Also, watercolours make pictures look more personal and emotional. :)

And I promise that I'll upload an actual comic soon. Promise!

Sweden was "neutral" in second World War, but must remember that Sweden helped Finland quite a much for example in Winter War and Finland is grateful for that to Sweden;
“It is known that at least 8,000 Swedes voluntarily went to Finland to fight alongside the Finns. The Swedish government and public also sent food, clothing, medicine, weapons and ammunition to aid the Finns during this conflict. This military aid included: 135,402 rifles, 347 machine guns, 450 light machine guns with 50,013,300 rounds of small arms ammunition; 144 field guns, 100 anti-aircraft guns and 92 anti-armor guns with 301 846 shells; 300 sea mines and 500 depth charges; 17 fighter aircraft, 5 light bombers, 1 DC-2 transport aircraft turned into bomber, and 3 reconnaissance aircraft, totally comprising 1/3 of the Swedish air force at the time.”
