I was throwing a couple of ideas around. This wasnt one of them actually, but I thought it was a bit more original than bunny-eared cats.

I'm trying to blog a little more regularly but I'm really not into writing (which is a bit strange cos I used to want to be a writer. Of course, I also wanted to be a magician, a spy, a pastry chef and a zookeeper...)

Happy Easter Holiday everyone!

On the desk

Ellie Cat having a post-breakfast nap.
Buildings. I did that last night, and added in the hot air balloon the first thing this morning.
Score sheets to learn for Easter service.
Lovely cards by KT Wong. Isn't the envelope pretty?

I had some ideas to do an Easter painting but I think that I really need to work on my paintings for the AFCC submission.

And do remember, today is Maundy Thursday, the night of the Last Supper.

I don't think this is for me!

Illustration Friday - Eyeglass

My take on this week's illustration challenge, Eyeglass.

Asian Festival of Children's Content 2013

I didn't qualify to submit any of my artwork for this year's AFCC because I'm not a published illustrator. So I was pretty excited to see this in my email. Someone I spoke to said that mostly, only "insiders" will get their submissions picked but well, I'm in the process of growing a thick skin and will just send in some dinosaur pictures and see how it goes.

My sprained ankle had me sitting and painting for two days straight since I was advised to rest it. A little mouse carrying a cupcake appeared on my sketchpad, and it got a bit crazy from there. I'm very grateful to Wanxin and Joy for their generous donations towards Madam Wong's shelter in exchange for a little painting :)

(Oh, ankle turned purple today but it's actually alot better and I can walk almost normally!)

Dinosaur day

I really do enjoy drawing these two. And I think that finally, my people drawings are starting to look somewhat decent. Hopefully sometime in the future, I will have enough pieces to submit the semblance of a book to a publisher. I do realise that my artwork and themes are quite "ang moh" (ie Caucasian) and local publishers seem to be geared towards promoting local content. Well, anything can happen :)
