i imagined i have my first debut

probably this is vain imaginations, but its pure fun. I like to do random drawings and then play with it as i liked. Tulips has been my all time favorite, the next flower that i like is the Madonna Lilies which  i grew to like it when i was working in AlvinLeong Photography back then. It has been quite sometime in the field of architecture and its a long field to rediscover many things and people, how things evolve and revolve, how i grew to love art, cultural, language and music. Its like vino and tapas, very closely related.

Por Mi Amor, is dedicated to my love, who has  been bringing joy in my life, and sharing sorrows with me all this while. If i would ever sing one day, this debut is for him.

sketchpad cover 2 - sarawak

Tonight i missed my home, so i sketched something and did some artwork on Borneo, Sarawak whilst Jerry Kamit's Sape Rainforest Music is playing. Everything seemed to be serene ( exclude all the workload to be done ). Life is good when we take things a little slower. I always like the way how people in my hometown live, a little laid back, but the quality of life and relationship is far better than any where else.

I'm always fascinated by native tribal arts and warriors, the history of the warriors and town and settlements in Sarawak and how Sarawak is painted by the westerners who colonised in the earlier days. it certainly is so different from today after changed by time and people.

Tonights exercise is luxurious. Sketch, watercolor painting on watercolor paper, hatching, and then compose in photoshop. i like the idea of sitting still doing some reading and drawing with the rainforest music on. Serene and tranquility are the words to describe the position i'm in now. Bliss.
the latest hobby of mine is to design some possible sketch covers according to the states of malaysia, maybe more places to come. i never know.
I call this the art corner of my room, displaying of past projects and also canvas painting i did last year. Clips with notes and random sketchings and also not forgetting the keychains from Bali and also Chunkeat's family. This is probably my favorite corner of the room.

Jerry Kamit's rainforest music. It feels good to listen to it.

sketchpad cover

its been a little boring in the night. so i sketched a bit, then played with photoshop and figured maybe i could make a little sketchpad like this for georgetown sketch. I dont know, perhaps i need motivation and a little money to do this small project which will satisfy myself. maybe sometime soon, once i get the drive to splurge a little on this. back in kuching, mum is my source of inspiration because she likes to watch me sketch!

apparently i'm back to penang already. Seen the old georgetown. The weather is still the same old hot and polluted. Very penang. Found some kakis (chunkeat,suping and peihoong) for sketchcrawl in penang. almost certain that it would be fun!

i think sketching has become my habit now. everything i see, i'm so tempted to sketch!! i figured, that is probably good because its not only capture by my own eyes and fingers, it add to personal touch.
