Travel Journal | Nagoya, Japan

Our recent company trip to Nagoya, Japan, last June was a good quick escape for everyone. Before the trip, I have been dealing with deadlines and juggling kids’ activities and finals hence I was not even sure what I wanted to do in terms of documenting our trip. I had planned on bringing along a…

Watercolor Adventures

These days, I’ve been trying to get out of my comfort zone and actually going out and meet new people! The fact that these are like-minded people makes it somehow easier to socialize… This weekend was one of the rare occasion where I actually showed up at 2 locations! 06.22 Sketching Jiangpin Road Draw Shanghai’s…

#oneweek100people2019

Another challenge done! The just-concluded #oneweek100people2019 initiated by Marc Taro Holmes, Liz Steel, and Suhita Shirodkar was a fantastic way to brush up on drawing people again. This year, my goal was to (1) understand more about gestural drawing and (2) be quicker with drawing people so I can incorporate into my urban sketches. These are…

#oneweek100people2018

So! It’s finished (or is it?)! The just-concluded #oneweek100people2018 initiated by Marc Taro Holmes and Liz Steel was both a challenge and interesting to say the least. I have eyed this challenge last year on Instagram but never got the courage to join as my biggest drawing weakness is in people or human form (and perspective)….

Finally, here is a new version of an old design; new Autumn-inspired colour scheme. With this version, I took out the meal planning section to…

500 Colored Pencils: Wanderlust

This might now become a regular series in my blog… as I complete (I hope) my 500 colored pencils from Felissimo. A couple weeks ago I received in the mail my equally awesome set called Wanderlust. The name alone resonates me and my love for travel! So I added coloured pencil drawings or shadings into a…

Watercolour Explorations #76 to #100

Here’s the fourth, and final, installment of my #the100dayproject. Was a bit late in finishing especially with the unplanned and planned trips during the 100 days. But it feels great that I finished though I am planning on continuing these watercolor exercises. It’s been part of my outlet and have truly enjoyed exploring the different…

500 Colored Pencils: Fun

Last week, I received a surprise present in the mail. It was a set of the Felissimo coloured pencils, more specifically the FUN set. Oh boy! I was giddy and excited to try these out. I actually knew of these Felissimo coloured pencils years and years ago when I walked into the shop in Beijing….

#foxandwatercolour Watercolour Challenge: April (Part 1)

When I saw this challenge on Instagram, I immediately jumped at the chance to get my watercolours out and try the challenge. I was also quite ecstatic to hear the positive ‘yes!’ I got from my colleagues when I brought up the subject with them joining this challenge. All hands on deck! Just amazing and…
