Hey! Will you pick it up on shelf in bookshop because of this cover? :-/

Although people say don't judge a book by its cover, it's still very important in reality! lol





Personally, I like it. But I'm just not very certain that does it delivers the information enough? does it looks interesting?

what do you think?

Christmas is coming~
i design some cards on Heyjumbo. Anyone can purchase it and customise your own card.




Probably it's the first time i can really feel what is Christmas. I saw people go Christmas shopping in town and finally realise what is Christmas shopping (spend lots of time and money to buy staff for others). I saw many Christmas decoration on street. I received some gifts or greetings from friends, and also feel a bit lonely cos many people will go home to gather with family. But anyway, i still got many things to do here~ WORK HARD in a RELAX way!

I am surprised that I can enjoy printmaking now, which I thought it's too complicated and uninteresting to me, haha. I am lucky to get many people's help, everyone is like a angel around me :)

也許是課程快要結束的關係,我越來越不安...

也想好好把握在這邊的所有機會,把握每一天,每一分鐘。

Port of King's Lynn 


當我在畫畫的時候,

一位老太太推著在輪椅上的老先生,在我旁邊的位子歇息。

老先生已經無法自己進食,老太太只能用針筒幫他準備流質食物注射...


我總是很容易受這種情景感傷,有點無法專心畫...


老太太溫柔的對老先生呢喃幾句,老先生咿呀了幾聲回應。



人總是會老邁的,無論年輕時有多風光璀璨,

老了,大家都一樣。



我就在想,能這樣溫柔耐心地照顧著一個不能行動自如的人

需要多少的愛與心?


還要有多堅強的勇氣,面對著最愛的人受苦痛的模樣?


曾經是大樹的他,變成殘弱的枯枝,

不能哭泣,反而要堅強地笑著照料他。


想著都心酸了...

I am back :D


this time i went a trip for three weeks long. From Germany, Italy then Spain.

I love the time.

just sort of sad that I didn't draw a lot :(

there are only few pictures I drew in Venice to share, the most romantic city.




the gondoliers


























there was one thing sort of make me feel sad is that my postcards didn't sell out.
I know i should not magnify it but just a bit disappointed :(
cos i was thinking that it could be an achievement of my own as a good beginning of being an artist who can earn money by artworks.
well.....it's not easy...i know...


fine, keep going then it will come oneday :(

I went to Edinburgh and York with my sister for a four day trip, it's awesome!

Through doing some simple pencil sketches, i felt fresh again.




Edinburgh castle.
Though I didn't enter the castle it's still beautiful enough from the angle of sitting at Princes Street Park.





Holyrood Park, the view from Calton hill.







Then this is York. A scene from a riverside.





The most different thing happened recently is i am totally not alone. 
When the family member around,it's really good to joking and chatting all the day together. i won't feel lonely anymore.
At the same time, i lost the moment to get alone with myself which is the most important part i made most of the works actually. i likes to think a lot while i am alone, and this is where i get inspiration. 
I am happy that I realised the lonely moments did mean a lot to me :)

Why this sea gull in this space?

This is what Martin told me to, enjoy it, don't worry too much. ( I am such a worrying peroson, awful )


About the summer project I am doing now, I still feel so difficult to make a completed book, stuck at many points which I cannot figure out... do I too greedy to do it with my level now? :-/

吃了我最愛的After Eight薄荷巧克力,漂亮的包裝紙就拿來玩一下囉 :P





之前就愛上它了,只是最近才發現它是這麼歷史悠久的巧克力(since 1960's)

前陣子是在Raymond Briggs的書裡發現它的蹤跡,

想說:這個人物手裡拿著的該不會是我抽屜那盒吧?!

果然沒錯,這個墨綠色包裝,一小塊方形的迷人薄荷巧克力,


原來早已風靡世界半個世紀了!



嘿,再來一片吧 :P

好久沒更新了~
這陣子在忙搬家,很多事情很煩。
加上一些衰事,陷入了一個前所未有的低潮…
一度很想訂機票回家,想放棄。


孤獨,真的很可怕。
但我選擇的這條路,真的不被理解(至少大多數人)。
人們只會一一離我遠去。
留下孤獨和我獨處。


這也許是種養分,但真的很痛苦很痛苦很痛苦。
現在有點理解梵谷為何會割掉自己的耳朵了。
在低潮的時候總是希望誰來拯救我,或者踩著我的那雙腳能良心發現的移開。
而事實上,只有我能拯救自己的快樂。


加油吧。
