My very first ATC


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!


Reading Heidi on merry Sunday

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 :)


Remember to keep posting


Merry Saturday. I think the best strategy for keeping blog is to post whenever I feel like it.
Just post and record what I'm thinking, doing, drawing, reading and learning. No plan,
no stress. Just remember to keep posting...

alphabet book work in progress

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
recommend it.

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
