Counting the Stars

A quick drawing while my son is taking a nap. I can’t believe it’s already in February. It’s been so long since the last post yet it feels like yesterday.

Holiday Card Idea

I’ve been working on generating ideas for my holiday card to send out to my family and friends. This is one of the ideas and more should follow. I am still debating if I should color in watercolor or use Illustrator this year.

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

This is my submission for Illustration Friday.


Happy New Year 2011

It’s been really long time since my last post but happy new year everyone!

2010 was a crazy year for me. My husband and I  finally went to our belated honeymoon, bought our first home, and had our first baby. Now my life is revolving around our little son and it’s completely different from my previous life. It was really hard to find spare time for drawing….but one of my new year’s resolutions is to draw more. Hopefully my son will start sleeping longer hours (possibly through the night in the next couple of month, yoo-hoo!), so I am looking forward to start drawing and designing patterns again soon.

Today’s illustration is for the new year’s card I made before my son arrived and haven’t had time to sent out. This year is the year of the rabbit so 3 rabbits (my husband, son and me :D) jumping around and just being goofy and happy.

Hope this year will be the great one for everyone! Have fun!!

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.

Babies, babies, and babies!

One of my friends just had a baby, and the other friend is almost due. On top of that I’ve got a bun in the oven too….So lately I am thinking a lot about babies.
