I just came back from Hong Kong but I already want to go back again! :D Managed to do quite a few things, including visiting the Studio Ghibli layout designs exhibition (It was awesome!!). Also joined Sketch Hong Kong for a culture and heritage sketchwalk around Causeway Bay. I did more than 30 sketches during the trip, most were done while eating or waiting for food :)
Went to KL and Seremban for a short trip last month. We arrived at the Larkin bus terminal around 2:30pm on that day, and bought tickets for the 3pm bus to KL. However, the bus didn’t take off until almost 4:45pm!! It seems that there were too few people on the bus so they keep delaying while trying to get more people to get on the bus… They even pretend to count the number of people on the bus and took our tickets so that we cannot get off the bus or get refund! How ridiculous…. I drew the bus terminal building and the bus next to us while waiting…
Drawing on the road… only managed 1 page…too tired and irritated after waiting for 2 hours…
Delicious Thai dinner in KL the next day
Sketching around Seremban old town for an afternoon…
On the bus from Seremban to JB, there was only an Indian lady other than us. We were relieved that the bus took off on time, only to find out later that we were happy too early – the driver didn’t take the usual route to highway right after leaving Seremban, instead he took some weird route and we ended up at Rembau! Funny thing is, the Indian lady was originally from Rembau, and her family drove her all the way from Rembau to Seremban in early morning so that she can take the bus to JB! As there were no one at Rembau, the driver took us to Tampin, where he was able to pick up 1x passengers finally. Buses in Malaysia are just too unpredictable… Draw this at the Tampin bus terminal.
The highlight of Feburary is my first ever oversea sketch trip with the UrbanSketchers Singapore members at Bangkok, Thailand. It was a 2-day event organized by the Bangkok sketchers as part of the community festival that celebrate a heredity area next to the Chao Phraya River. I am impressed by the hospitality and the organization of the BKK sketchers. I enjoyed the experience very much and would sure be back to BKK!
Just realized that the first EDM drawing I did was in 2006! I had kinda stopped following the list the last few years, but now I’m re-doing the list all over again, using Paper 53 on the new iPad. I’m posting them on my tumblr blog – whydoodle. I will also post a summary / highlight here from time to time. Hope you’ll enjoy!
Here’s #1 – draw a shoe. I recently bought a few pairs of shoes from my HK trip, and here’s one of them.
Shoes are such a draw-able subject. I drew another one – the slippers I’m wearing at home.
Haven’t updated for a while as I went back to HK for a short break. Did not bring the camera this time, just a small sketchbook and a pen. It was great to see family and friends again, but the trip was too short.
We took an early flight to HK.
The first thing we did after settling down is to go for a haircut. I had a very bad haircut a few months ago in SG and I need a fix so badly… felt much happier after the haircut. Then we went back to the hotel and take a short break before going to family dinner.
The next morning, we had dim sum brunch with a friend.
We went to Sha Tin to see the Picasso Exhibition in the afternoon, and had dinner at New Town Plaza with a friend.
The next day, we went to Sai Kung. We even took a small boat to one of the off islands. The boat ride was really fun. We had desserts at the famous HoneyMoon dessert place before going home for dinner.
Drew this on a very hot afternoon, it was so hot that I don’t want to leave the room because it has air conditioning. I was bored and wanted to sketch, but there isn’t much interesting things to sketch in this very ordinary room, so I came up with this – draw the 360 view of the room. I added in the color in Photoshop later after scanning the sketch.
