Visual attempts to capture the essence of SISU

In Finland we have this thing called SISU. I don't know if there's an official definition for the word, but it's some kind of never-giving-up attitude. It's considered to be something so important that it's a part of so called finnish holy trinity: SISU - Sauna - Sibelius.

Some time ago I noticed that some are trying to rethink the concept of SISU, update it for this century. I found it challenging and inspiring to try to capture the essence of SISU just by drawing.

So, here they are, my three SISU-doodles.

... I just noticed that by seeing these images in order, one may calculate how much each doodle eats a pencil. Luckily those pencils doesn't cost a fortune.
