The Secret Garden
Unfinished. A good friend passed away. It has been my companion for more over a year. Tomorrow I’ll be reunited with a new pencil who’d show me greater things.
At first, this was about a strong vice I could not relieve myself of. But I think it was sweeter for this to be about the little wonders we hide that threaten to spill from the swell inside of us.
Leaving into the distance, I realized for the first time.
With the beauty in your love, I reflected on this word “thank you”
and because of that day, I became a little bit more of an adult.
I pray modestly for you to “show me a happy smile”. For a long time…
-Janne da Arc, Carnation

I drew a lot within the past hour… I had a sudden epiphany over thesis care of a friend. So now I’ve been drawing tons of flourishes that are spinoffs from my usual oriental nouveau style. These are to be painted and placed in my book.

This is a photo of a spread I’m painting for yet another storybook project. I’ve got ample time before the deadline this time, so hopefully the other 7 spreads I have to paint would come out well.
I’m really swamped with work. Wish there’s a bit more time to draw for myself.

Our class was asked to make storybooks as a project. But because of a massive misunderstanding, I was forced to create and finish it in three days. Here’s the cover.

Another old sketch post to break the silence.
I have new ones but they’re still waiting for ink :(

First drawing study I did for a painting. Needs a lot more work. It’s going to be in the Byzantine style, reminiscent of Klimt. I’m a bit excited with the idea of experimenting with gold acrylics and bold shapes.
But this study still remains un-rendered and the patterns aren’t drawn (the ones that are, are shabbily done D:).
Hope the next few studies prove to be more interesting.

So little time so much to do.
Drawn during class to keep me awake.

So much painting that needs to be done. My brain is tired of studying palettes but I’m close to a breakthrough! I’m sure.

The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep, safe from the pain
