I think it is cool to show you how I work some times.
This is a doodle painting. I really like this photo I found on Pinterest,
so I did a quick painting of it.

Happy New (Chinese ) Year!
 This year is the year of horse. I have been drawing a lot of horses lately, although most of them look kind of like..... donkey. 


Okay, so Chinese New Year! We like to use the animal of the year to form a four-character idiom. This year I saw this idiom from my sister-in-law ---" 馬上有錢" !!!! It is so funny and brilliant!!


( horse)   ( on top/over )   ( have )    ( money )
when "馬上" combines and uses together, it means "immediately/ right away"

So the phrase
has double meaning.
" money on the horse" & " have/got money immediately"
So cool, huh?
The yellow thing on the horse is money. It's called yuan bao which was a type of silver or gold ingot currency used in Ancient China.
Thanks for stopping by :)

Wait. My last post was June 2013?
That's bad...

So..
Happy belated Hollaween...belated Christmas...and belated New year!!

What's new?

My first Pop-Up book was published around the Christmas time (2013). The book turns out looking so amazing. I had so much fun working on this book with the amazingly talented artist Yevgeniya Yeretskaya and the help from the lovely A. D. Monika Brandrup.

Here's a video of the book.

I was doodling in photoshop and ended up having the piece below. It wasnt my intention to do something "Mary Blair"...but it ended up looking so Mary-Blair-influence. As an artist,  I dont think it is a good thing....don't get me wrong, i love mary blair to death. But I want my own style to come up first. Its funny how it ends up look like this when i was thinking "retro color" while painting it... i still have a long way to go :P need to practice more!


Thanks for stopping by.
