Day 1 - 7 days daily art challenge~

Invited by my friend, I am doing the 7 days daily art challenge. I am making one sketch a day, it makes me so happy!

Day 1

 

Jump Up & Down for Max and Sasha

My husband and I have owned two lovely Tonkinese cats, their names are Max and Sasha. They are two brothers from the same litter. Unfortunately they both have diagnosed lymphoma cancer in last December. Their life expectancy is from few weeks to few months, I know I am going to loose both of them soon. I am spending some good quality time with them and make sure they live as healthy as possible. In the meanwhile, I started drawing them in stories to recap all the memory they have brought to my life. The one below was my first attempt, I am happy to continue to draw their fun silly things. It is very comforting when I draw them out, I hope you do enjoy reading it too~

New Art for Greeting Cards~

I have added many new art to my greeting card section, you are welcome to check them out here.

New Editorial Illustration for Chirp Magazine~

I recently finished an editorial illustration “Take A Trip – A Pancake Festival” for Chirp Magazine on the January / February issue. It takes young readers travelling to the winter pancake festival in Russian. It was so FUN to finish this commissioned project!

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!

 

Ink Tober 2014

I am so thrilled to participate in the Inktober 2014. There are many artists from all over the world to create one ink drawing a day in the month of October, then we share through Facebook or Instagram or Twitter etc. It is amazing to see so many different unique great arts, and it gives me opportunity to know more fellow artists through the event.

One drawing per day. I like to show you what I came up in the first 15 days, more will come by end of October! Or follow my social media to see the update.
