After nearly six months of looking at the ordinary objects in my house, I feel like drawing something else. I have this old calendar with adorable pictures of llamas, and sometimes I just have an urge to draw them. Here's a quick drawing of adorable, but determined baby llama!
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.
A while back I watched the series, and got inspired by that round demon from Good Omens. It was so adorable! However, its fate wasn't the simplest of all, so I felt the need to commemorate this fella. I only had a glance of him on the screen, so this is my vision of that demon rathe than an exact copy. It reminded me of a threatened blowfish, which would explain its spherical form. It also seemed to have some sort of a medal and a belt. I ended up with this fun creature making some magic 😀
Here's another quick portrait of a girl. Sometimes I carry several pens, and this time I decided to use bright blue to accent some parts of the drawing. The main part is the heart that this girl is wearing on her neck. The proportions are somewhat off on the torso, and I wish I'd made more definition on the face.

On top of that, the particular feature that interested me most, takes over and turns out to be over-exaggerated. Let's assume that this … Continue reading .039 Long Neck, pen portrait

I drew this during Lunar New Year when they had a multitude of beautiful red lanterns hanging from the ceiling. The vantage point is from the Little Katana sushi place, a cafe with a beautiful view of the skating rink. … Continue reading .037 Lunar New Year at Galleria Dallas
Here's another throwback to the times before quarantine. It's funny, how no one even really knew what quarantine is or how it's spelled before 2020 hit. I can't believe I have spent nearly half a year without going anywhere. I even haven't left the house in months, thank goodness for backyard or I'd develop a … Continue reading .035 North Italia Lamp, pen drawing
I got into a habit of drawing whenever I'm waiting for something or someone. It might seem that in such situation there's nothing to draw, but it's best to always look twice, there's always something. This tree trunk was kind of interesting, and I didn't get a chance to finish it at the time of … Continue reading .033 Abrupt Tree, pen drawing
Throwback to the times when it was okay to go to a restaurant. This was around Christmas time, so the tables were decorated with evergreens and cranberries. Those were the good times. Pen on 3.5 x 5 inch travel notepad
That time when thoughts start flowing around and through your head, right when you're about to fall asleep...
