Cat's Eye

I am sorry for not posting last week. It had been a hectic week helping out my friend Iceman with his projects and datelines, but it was all fun =) there despite being depressed due to being rejected for the position I applied in Mississippi. I really had a lot of hopes there, but at least I was the top 3 of all candidates applying for the similar position.
I won't have a lot of time this week as well, as I'll be heading to Texas tomorrow for an interview near Waco on Thursday. It'll be an interesting 7+hour scenic drive with my wife, and we'll be back by the end of the week.
So here's a quick one which I did on my Moleskine. I am not sure what I was doing, I just wanted to draw a cat's eye(I'm always looking into my cat's eyes to see if I could find Lord Sauron there ^^) and I think they are pretty, and of course I got carried away with the colors again.
Thank you all for your comments on Hayley. I really appreciate them all, and I'll try to keep my blog theme alive... a drawing a week, and make it at least 54 a year.

I was listening to the song "Airplanes" playing on the radio, and I thought it's pretty catchy so I decided to draw some faces(which I hadn't done for a while now). I picked the subject because she's got lots of interesting expression, and her hair colors is just fun to play with =) I only used pen markers over pencil sketches this time round to save some time. The effect is some what a mixture of portrait and illustration which I kinda like ^^

Thank you all for your kind comments on my Soft Pals sketch, and for following my blog. I apologize for the error I made while setting up the blog which didn't show any updates for the longest time. But that's fixed now so I hope it works fine.

Soft Pals

I am sure everyone grew up with one of these. I had a teddy bear my dad bought from Australia when I was 8, it stayed with me until I was 11 ^^. I bought the the Beluga Whale on the left and the Sea Otter on the right for my 2 and half year old niece in Malaysia. The one in the middle is my wife's favorite frog Moko which she's been having for years now. So what is BFF? It means Best Friends Forever =)
 Water color, color pencils and pen markers On 5"x8" Moleskine Sketchpad 

And in the mail yesterday I got a major surprise from Italy! Cathy Holtom(and everyone knows she's an awesome artist, click on her site here) sent me a couple of gorgeous post cards of Sicily, 3 ultra realism work of hers printed in strips(I really like these!) and an original, the one and only hand drawn 12.5cm X 13.5cm sketch of an ancient roman ruins, AUTOGRAPHED! Yay! It seems like it's done with ink pen and color pencils, and I love it! Thank you so much Cathy!

Crawfish World

A few months back I was asked to do play around with the idea of viewing the world from the Crawfish's point of view. I didn't do much about it but I think I might get back into it some time again soon.
 Here's one Crawfish with some serious coffee addiction.
 And here's how it would look like if Leonardo DaVinci was drawing a Crawfish instead of Mona Lisa.
Will there be any cards printed out of these? I have no idea, but it sure was fun doing them =) Thank you all so much again for your comments and your card requests, I really hope you like them. I have some more requests which I'll attend to shortly, sorry for the wait.
