Turning pages.

I have been catching up with my reading. A lot of it. So far, I’ve finish reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (I immediately watch the movie too right after reading the book and caught myself listening to the song Hero by The Wallflowers a lot), Life of Pi, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and currently reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s part of my thirty before 30 list and while I’m in the mood of reading, why stop now?

Hence the very little time spent with pencil and papers. That and I am constantly on the move right now. Been packing in and out of my trusty leather brown suitcase for the past 2 weeks both for work and personal. But I did try to squeeze in some sketches whenever I get some time at the office or at home. Here are the “some” sketches.

No colors. Been planning to though. For the first 2. Planning of doing a sketch up with watercolor on a series of pin up girls. I drew them in a A2 sized 360gsm grained watercolor papers. Oh well. Every great thing starts with a plan, right? The last 2 were quick sketch ups at the office on A4 sized glitter card stock papers. Other than that, here is a peek of what my new project looks like. I’m transferring my doodles on sets of crockery with gold ink.

1 Set contains 6 of flat plates, smaller flat plates, half bowls and smaller bowls. All will be hand drawn with individual patterns.So no plates is the same. Now all I need to do is to bake these porcelains so the color stays.

I’ll be putting these babies out for auction later.

So till my next entry, I’m sending out millions of X’es and O’es your way. May you have a great day.

  1. Love the sketches. Really nice work. An illustration tutor once told me, “never draw the lines in between the teeth”. I did however protest that I could see them, so why not draw them, but he was right. Lovely work.

    • No wonder I always have problems when it comes to drawing teeth. It always turns out wonky and uncharismatic. I had the same thinking. I saw it on the real image, why cant I draw it to make it even more believable… I guess… I am wrong too. Thank you so much with the great tips. 😀
