My very first ATC swap for a friend in Slovenia. The theme is VIVID.
I have known about ATC for years but didn't join in any group as I didn't know anyone.
Facebook brought me such a great opportunity to make friends online. I met a group
of lovely artist people and they kindly let me join in a wonderful sketchbook project
which I cannot show here yet. It's kind of our little secret until it's all done ;)
I enjoy the group so much that when this ATC group created by one of the group members
opened, I just jumped right in!
And I do have fun. This card is drawn and painted with markers on brown card paper.
There will be different theme for each month. I think I have to try new medium as much
as I can, to learn something new and have fun. Next topic is OWL. I wonder how
my owl will look like...
It's really nice to meet like-minded people across the world, isn't it?
Thanks for coming and have a merry day!
I have been really crazy reading children's books lately. Especially the ones written before I was born. No vampires, wizards or exciting adventures. Just simple ordinary lives of children living in a period long time ago. I bought this edition of Heidi years ago but just actually read it today. Then I found Heidi Puffin postcard matching perfectly with the book. I use it as bookmark :)
Lovely reading and lovely Sunday. I wish you have a merry time as I do :)
I'm working on a Thai alphabet book project. These are what I have done so far,
taking care of little details. This is my very first picture book. I'm quite excited
and hope it will turn out ok ;)
Life is getting into the direction I have always wanted it to be, to work mainly on illustration.
Right now I have only small projects but I determine to make it bigger in time :)
And I'm still learning, always learning. Make Art That Sells part B was already over.
I didn't have time to take the class when it's in session but I'm taking the class at my own pace
now and will start doing homework next week hopefully. Already have some sketches
for the first assignment :)
I'm also taking Year of the Fairy Tale online class with Carla Sonheim. Love, love the class.
So wonderful. It's a lovely way to nourish your creativity all through the year. I really
I realize how much I have missed blogging. I will try to write something, post my
daily work progress maybe, at the end of each day. It will be wonderful if I can do it.
Thanks for coming. Have a merry day :D
Almost 3 months that I have been absent from this blog. I should give this blog up already as it seems I will never keep posting consistently. But I like blogging. It's the best method of recording my life. So here I am again.
However, as I decided earlier since the end of last year that this year of 2014 will be my year of being offline, which means I will focus more on my making art offline rather than sharing online as I used to, this blog will mostly keep records of my everyday drawings for some time. Until I'm ready to share more of my art experience ;)
The good thing is today I'm still drawing :)
My newest stationery design collection is here! The theme is merry holiday. November is coming up and also the happy season of Christmas and New Year. I initially designed this for Make Art That Sells part B first week assignment of holiday card. Then I decided to make a whole collection for my shop. The idea started from Christmas ornaments and the rest just came to me. I had so much fun creating this design set :D
You can look at each item's details in holiday/christmas section in my MerryDay shop. I hope you enjoy this bright and cheerful collection. It's something that I'm proud of :) Don't forget to look around the shop and see if there's anything you would love to have. It's special occasion and I'm having big shop sale now until November 25, 2013! Remember to use the discount code : MERRYHOLIDAY13 when check out. If you could spread the word, I would be very grateful :)
Now some of you may wonder how I have been after last post about my creative struggle. I actually got a message from a facebook friend. She's following my Page and she wondered why I had been so quiet. I was so touched and thankful that someone would care for me and my work enough to stop by and leave a message. It's one of the things that help me go through the struggle, which I think will be a helpful story to talk about.
Not today though ;) Now I just want you to go and take a look at my shop and enjoy! :D
PS. Please note that I create and ship everything from my hometown in Bangkok, Thailand. It will take about 1-3 weeks for international shipping from Thailand. You may want to order early to make it in time before Christmas :)
Remember the 10% discount code : MERRYHOLIDAY13 !
