It's a week of babysitting of my little nieces. I'm not good at taking care of children. The only trick I have is to draw. Luckily, my nieces also love making art so we spent time drawing and painting. Drawing on tiny nutshells was fun and it's nice to pretend to be kid again ;)
ps. sorry for the lousy photos, I just took them with my old iphone :P
My second ATC swap. The theme is OWL. I intended to make a simple brown owl with cut out wings. Then the idea of flowers decorative and lettering came in. I wanted to do the eyes with some buttons but drew the simple sleeping eyes instead. I had fun doing this. The next topic is TALL, wondering how I will come up with the idea :)
This week is a big holiday in Thailand. People are having fun and I'm having a great time drawing and being inspired by good books and great art on the net :)
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
