Chinatown


Happy Chinese New Year!!! It’s the year of the Ox which is my Chinese zodiac so hopefully this year will bring me many good luck. haha. Above is a drawing that I did for the Moleskine exchange that my cousin and I are doing and coincidentally completed the drawing on Monday (Chinese New Year) isn’t that funny? Sorry about the picture, the lighting wasn’t very good where I was at and this was the best I could do.  The building that I drew is the Dragon City Mall located in Calgary’s Chinatown which I always go to whenever I get a chance to go downtown. I love that mall! I’ve been going there since I was eight or nine years old, I would go there with my parent and brother to buy Anime posters like Sailormoon and DragonBall Z and other cute stuff. (I still do that now btw. haha) They now have a Japanese beauty products store there on the second floor for those who love Japanese cosmetics like I do. I also get my haircut there ($25.00 for a haircut is a good price!) and the BEST Bubbletea IMO is there too. Calgary’s Chinatown is a bit small but even though I think that everything that I need is there.

As for the drawing I did it all in pencil. I haven’t done a pencil drawing in a while and I forgotten how messy it can get. haha. But I love it though. If you are wondering what’s that strip of words on top of the drawing, it’s actually double sided tape for the tracing paper that I’m going to attached so that the pencil drawing doesn’t smudge off on the next page. I’ll take another picture of it when I apply the tracing paper for my next post so that you can see what I mean. Also I’m selling a bunch of printer Laserjet ink cartridges (HP and Lexmark – Brand new) on Ebay. If you are interested in buying here is the link. Gong hei fat choi!!!!

I’m back!

Fashion Drawing, Pencil.

Wow, I haven’t posted anything on here for a long time! I’ve been really busy at work, especially now with the Christmas season. I was also sick last week, I had a bad case of the stomach flu and had constant fever and a strep throat. No fun… I’m going back to work tomorrow. *sigh. Christmas is in four days! Then it’s my birthday! =)

I’m trying to get some new artwork going before the New Years. I bought a lot of art materials on Ebay last month (maybe a little too much I should say, but they’re a Christmas/Birthday present for myself… hehe.) and I’m anxious on getting to use them. hehe.

Close-up of the drawing.

I attached a drawing I did for practice earlier this year. I got the model off from a Glamour magazine fashion page. Her eyes are done by continuous shading and I did a lot of incomplete lines on her face too which is always fun to do when you are doing a fashion drawing. I’ll be putting up more recent work in a couple of days, so stay tuned for that!
