"Third Beach at Stanley Park"

This sketch is done back in the summer, pretty hot but since beautiful ocean is near by so I had cool breeze. I did quick sketch, trying to capture what's going on with different groups of people and finished this off at coffee shop. :-)


Cafe Sketch

I usually liked to go to coffee shop near where I live or hang out with friends and sketch sometimes.
Sketching is something can be described as mental break for me. I also sometimes like to do some experiments with different style or drawing or using different materials such as pen or markers. But this time,
i've used black pencil.


"Color Study"

-Color Study/June-
I've always admired traditional painters and enjoyed pleinair paintings. This time, I've been trying more painterly approach and study color and temperature.



-Personal Project
It was pretty challenging and fun to figure out characters and environment to tell the story.




Study & Experiment..

Last week, I had lots of fun in Seattle for 3 days and had an opportunity to exhibit in Artist's alley at Emerald City Comic Con. It was such amazing experience that I got to meet other artists and greet with people. Here are some of my studies and experiments with texture brush.


"For My Daddy!"

"For My Daddy!" -  Personal Work

It's been hectic with work and personal life and I realize I gotta get back to my personal work again.. haha..
Just out of curiosity, I asked myself  "When is my last time helping or giving something for my family?" and I started sketching out.
