I said I would

  I said I would colorize it, didn't I?  :P
Not bad.  ;)
Looks almost identical!  :P
 And just for fun...

Dancefloor dust...

  I was bored, and since I haven't drawn anything in quite a bit, I decided to draw this cute little cartoon picture.  :P

Gary Barlow and Agnetha Faltskog performing "I Should Have Followed You Home" live at the BBC! :D

Cute, right?  I think I'm going to colorize it using ribbet...  Oh yeah, tomorrow's the big day!  EXCITED!!!

April Celebrations

  April is coming up in just a few more days - and there are going to be tons of celebrations for everyone! 

  • 4/1/14 - April Fools Day AND ABBAFan456's Blog's 2nd year anniversary!  (I have a surprise for all of you!  :D)
  • 4/5/14 - Agnetha's 64th Birthday!  Happy birthday...
  • 4/6/14 -  ABBA day!  40 years since Waterloo!  (I have a surprise for that, too!)
  • 4/25/14 - Bjorn's 69th Birthday!  One more year to go and he'll be 70...  Better get an ABBA reunion before that...  :P
  That's all I can think of right now.  And in case you're wondering, I didn't include Mamma Mia!'s 15th Anniversary because I don't consider it as part of April Celebrations - I consider it as April Mournings.  I HATE Mamma Mia!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the set of... "I am an A"

  It has been just more than two years since I uploaded my "I am an A" animation (Feb 25, 2012), and since its going to be my blog's 2nd anniversary on April 1st (My first blog post wasn't until April 5th), I decided to revisit the set.  :P

Now that is one huge set.  It takes about 10 minutes for it to load.  :P

I just love the crowd.

... I like wine, I like food...

Old ABBA...

I'm down to earth, yes indeed.

Every song opens the door!  (I used the same set for the end of my first Waterloo animation.)

I'm the talented one...

Boy, that is one bulky truck.  :P
  I still can't believe that its been two whole years since I started this wonderful blog.  :P

Colorizing is fun. ;)

 So, I decided to have some fun and try and colorize that coloring page I put up in the previous post and this is what I got.  :)
  The colors are a bit to light, but that alright with me. 

  I think I'm going to make some merchandise with this on my Zazzle shop... :D

Three more drawings.

  It always happens that whenever I'm in the mood to start drawing again, something happens that makes it to be very hard.  This time, I got a splinter in my finger.  There still is a tiny little bit of a splinter in my finger, but its coming out... slowly...

  So, here are my most recent drawings:

Agnetha in 1974.  I think the shading came out pretty nicely.  :)

This one is of Frida from 1972.  I think I'm getting pretty good at black and white pictures.  :)yu

And, since I really, really enjoyed Disney's take on the classic story of Rapunzel, I drew this. 
And... since I LOVE coloring pages...

A coloring page for you!  :D  Cartoon ABBA... Cute?

I changed my mind... again... -_-

Okay, I have no idea whats up with me, but I've decided to do a different animation instead.  I'm doing Waterloo.  Not the studio recording buy the live recording from the Eurovision Song Contest. I'll do Me and Bobby and Bobby's brother afterwards. :P

Bjorn in Dubaie- Why?

 It appears that Bjorn is currently in Dubai.  I wonder why...

  "There are days when our hero try to check in at Dubai hotels as an ordinary man. However, even there they know who he really is and welcome him with an in-room chocolate version (yes, true!) of his now legendary star shaped electric guitar. Bj√∂rn, you can run but you can't hide! Now play it for us (before you eat it!)." - ABBA the Museum

  That is quite a scrumptious looking guitar.  Bjorn, before you finish it, will you give me a piece?  I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!

"The Story of ABBA - For young readers" is on facebook!

 I'm not much of a facebook person, but I decided that this might be a good start for advertising.  So here it is!

  The cover photo came out pretty nicely, if I do say so myself...  :P

ABBA Intermezzo NO. 72 - Thank you, Regina!

  Today, I got my copy of ABBA Intermezzo issue number 72.  This copy was sent to me by Mrs. Regina Grafunder.  You see, a short while ago, I wrote to Mrs. Grafunder to see if she could feature my book, "The Story of ABBA - For young readers" in the next issue of ABBA Intermezzo.  I sent her a copy of my book and everything she needed in order to put it in the magazine.  If you go to page 4 of this month's issue, issue No. 72, you will see something very special.  :)

  Thank you so much, Regina!  ^_^  I'm sooo happy!!!   

  I really enjoyed the magazine - the articles, and interviews!  Especially the report on Bjorn's appearance on the German TV show, "Wetten daas...?", from Regina's point of view.  And the rare picture on the back!  Thank you again, Regina!  :)

  I hope everyone will and have enjoyed this magazine as much as I have!  <3


What next, ABBAFan456?

  So, I've finally decided that animation I'm going to make next!  Me and Bobby and Bobby's Brother!  Its going to be so much fun because I've been thinking about this animation ever since I first made I am an A!  So, its going to be about Frida, Benny, and Bjorn playing together and little Agnetha (since she's the youngest) is always tagging along.  And whenever they say "Well there was me and Bobby and Bobby's brother", Agnetha's going to run in holding a sign saying "And Bobby's sister".  Sound nice?

Yet another rare pic...

  How are people finding these? They are amazing!!

  It  looks like Linda, Bjorn's dog Roddie, outside Bjorn's house with possibly one of Linda's friends. :P

ABBA's 40th Anniversary: The happenings

  Ice the Site just posted what will be happening for ABBA's 40th Anniversary.  It sounds like so much fun!  ABBA's last performance at the Wembley Arena will be released on a LIVE album, two ABBA members will be attending the book release for the Official Photo Book (Bjorn & Agnetha?  Agnetha & Frida?  Bjorn & Frida?  Benny & Bjorn?  Benny & Agnetha?  Frida & Benny?  I think those are all the possible outcomes...), an ABBA event in Brighton, England called "ABBAversary"...  So much fun!!!  Too bad I won't be able to take part in any of these...  But that's okay, I'll have my own mini celebration at home with my ABBA dolls.  :)

  Speaking of my ABBA dolls, here is a wallpaper I made.  I've designed many more, but you'll have to wait for the 40th anniversary...  ;)

Dear old sun, please come back and melt the snow!

A great way to start off the new month of March is by wishing that the snow would go away.  Currently we've got tons of snow (which is thankfully melting), so I hope the sun comes back soon for both me and Benny.  (See below). :)
