Christmas Card

IMAG1857

Christmas card has arrived!!!!
As many of you have guessed, the previous illustration of snowman, Santa and reindeer was the design for this year’s Christmas card!! It is exactly a week away from Christmas…and I need to send them out ASAP! One of my closest friends actually lives in Switzerland. I do hope the card will make it on time…but if not, being late is better than never..isn’t it? 🙂
I wish I could send them out to everyone who’s been so supportive and inspiring through this blog. I am truly grateful for all the readers and blog friends as it’s definitely been encouraging receiving positive feedback. I would like to wish you all happy holidays and Merry Christmas.

Snow Christmas Illustration

When I think of Christmas, this image of a snowman instantly comes to mind. It probably resonates with my childhood memory. A sound of the snow falling silently and steadily, the bell ringing afar and the scenery of silver snow forest with layer upon layer of silver trees.

I’m still dreaming of a white Christmas…in a land where Christmas comes in the middle of summer holidays and Santa goes out surfing to cool down. 🙂

Tough Being a Snail

I cannot believe how time flies! It’s already December and we’re starting a countdown for Christmas..
Oh my oh my..
Here is an illustration I’ve just completed for one of the comps I entered recently. As it’s already passed the deadline, I’m going to share it with my lovely blogger friends. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Once upon a time there was a girl, who was in love with rain. To put it correctly, she was in love with the creature that comes out on a rainy day. She just loved catching and collecting snails for her pet.
Nothing gets in her way when she finds a spirally coral shell gliding slowly on the wet ground on such a day. A ladder, puddles, pointy bush, a hammock….nothing really stops her from chasing them.
“Wait uuuuuuup!” she screams “I-want-to-keep-you-as-my-pet!”
Snails look back and yells for help, rushing each other.

Snail A: “Go, go, go!! You gotta move faster!! She’s just behind us!!”
Snail B: “I’m moving as fast as my foot can glide…”
“Oh no…look at him.”
Snail C: (Cowered, half frozen.)
Snail A & B: “Come Oooon, moooooove ittttt!!!”
