Christmas Advent Calendar

I always want to make art for December count down but have never found time to do it in the past, This year I decided to reserve my time to make it comes true. I love to create art for the Christmas Advent Calendar, it keeps me busy in December but I have never run out ideas to draw for Christmas and Winter Festival. Stay tuned until the surprise on December 25th! You can also follow me on Instagram for the upcoming art.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays~ :)

Window Painting Part 1

I just finished a commissioned window painting project collaborating with my artist friend Katalin Koos for a local Mahtay cafe in downtown St. Catharines, Canada. As an independent illustrator, I always work on projects alone all the time, it was a new but very fun experience to partner with someone to paint. We took some photos and videos for each other as we were painting, I like to share few with you here.

We are going to work on another window painting this Sat, stay tuned~ :)

I was painting my whimsical deer.

Check out the video to see the final look!

Christmas Collection 2012

If you come to visit my blog once in a while, you may notice that I have launched a new web site. It is so nice giving a new look in 2012, it means I am preparing for new challenges, and reaching out some new clients as well.

In the past week, I just finished a new collection for Christmas 2012. The most interesting thing was few illustrations in this series cames from the ideas of my doodles. I like to show you the images below so you know the work flow of each piece, from there you will be able to trace my creative path. If you check DoodleDoodlers very often, you may find them look familar. Right on! : )
