I will be away from Melbourne for about a month from late today. I wish I could have finished the illustration last night but it turns out that I need to work on them when I return from the trip.
I won’t be able to access the internet as much as I am now, but please don’t feel like I am neglecting you r comments or stopped from visiting your page.
I will try to check what other bloggers are up to and read their posts when I can!
Thank you for your patience and ongoing encouragements. Please do leave me your thoughts on the illustration above. I am hoping to create a children’s story using this piece. Hmmmm. Shall I?? Can you think of a story?

Work in Progress – Animal Party

Media used: pencils

Currently I am working on a piece with lots of animals partying in the forest.
There’s always a new discovery when illustrating animals and plants…for instance, questions like “how many toes do turtles have?” or “what plants exist in forest and in the same area?” were things I needed to research while I illustrate them!
I love illustrating imaginary creatures and personifying them…also fantasy and imagination are the two main themes I carry when I draw. But I also love being realistic at specific elements to convince the audience and bring the drawings alive, if that makes sense 🙂

What is your favourite animal?
Oh by the way, I know penguins don’t appear in the forest in real life but since he’s one of my favourite animals I gotta add him to the party crew! x

Work in Progress – Zoo in the Night Sky

Okay, so I am trying to do something a bit different on my recent piece of artwork. A bit of collage here and there, watercolor, pencils and some more collage! It’s not finished yet but thought of sharing the process bits since I haven’t been sharing the work pics in ages.
Now I look back at my painting and wonder…oh why did I have to add the barbie doll (on the far right at the bottom) at the last minute which totally screwed up the shadow !! Poor doll looks like she has four legs and arms! Ahh..
Shadow is one of the challenges for me at the moment. I’ll have to keep on practicing! 🙂
