IF: Remedy

I am waking up now....

My remedy to start a week relatively happy is a cup of coffee. The thicker the stronger the better. For that reason, I love brewing my coffee with a Bodum French Press.

I think everyone has some bottled up emotions wanting to get out.

This is my submission for Illustration Friday.

Hey, you really look like me!

This week’s Illustration Friday submission.

When I was a kid, I really wanted a twin sister or brother. It seemed really cool.

IF: Breakfast

A big stack of pancakes with butter and a lot of syrup...mmm...yum!

This week’s Illustration Friday submission.

I love breakfast. Both cooking, eating, and especially when someone cooks it for me. It just makes me happy.

This week I am posting my sketch too since I like when other artists post their process. Hope you’ll enjoy.

IF: Diary

The kitty has something in her mind...

This week’s my Illustration Friday submission.

I remember I had a homework for summer writing and drawing about what I did during the vacation. I didn’t enjoy it much. When someone (especially teachers) tells me what I have to do, it’s not fun to do it anymore. How funny how my mind works.

IF: Paisley

Under the starry paisley night.

This week’s Illustration Friday submission.

I didn’t touch my watercolors for long time, but I was so inspired by Gennine’s Art Blog, especially how she uses the white acrylic ink on watercolor, I wanted to give it try myself. Although there is no way I could draw like her, I liked how my painting came out. I think the white ink worked nicely for starry paisley pattern.

Since the last week’s IF topic: ripple (to help the Gulf oil spill), I keep wondering how all the birds and sea creatures around the Gulf are doing. I hope the situation will get better soon and hopefully they are able to rest peacefully at night.
