Lately, I really started to notice the inevitable disappearance of time. Weeks and even months evaporate into nothing whenever I just keep on going without pausing to reflect. I'd like to start a new challenge for myself, and make a small summation of achievements for the week. Let's stretch that time! Last week, I finally … Continue reading Flying Week – New Challenge
Sometimes, I just draw what's in front of me, like this tea bag. However, quite often it turns out to be this ornate candy vase. I tried to capture its form, but symmetry didn't quite work out. Still, I think the general shape is quite clear, and the candy suggests its nature.
Sometimes, a cup is more than it seems. Sometimes, it has ears.

I have this adorable set of bunny vases. They just like to stare at each other ^^;
Here's an interesting wall clock. I guess tiny format is not the best way to depict detailed objects. I also wish I included some other objects that would indicate the wall itself. Anyway, this was a fun doodle and practice piece.
A part of this challenge is to make an educated decision of what to include in the drawing. I used to try to include as much of reality in a drawing as I can. However, studying with Michael Mentler has taught me that artist has the power to include and exclude elements of an artwork … Continue reading .020 Flowers and Feathers
