The lines.


Trickle, Green, Oak

And The Line Begins To Blur

Day wasn't over yet, so still sketching. My friend and I were watching Susanna Leinonen's dance creation which was showing in Salihara Gallery that very same day. Roughly feeling out the hard and soft contours of the dancers' silhouettes in the dark. The show was very beautiful!


First Sketchcrawl #37 in Taman Mini.



Ah last week updates besides work! 
I've been live sketching alot these days when not doodling ballerinas and watercolour girls. Happy my friend invited for a sketchcrawling event at Taman Mini. 
There, I've met talented art friends who had been sketching on the events for a while now, Thomas as the host. It was definitely more fun sketching together. Refreshing!
On a sunny Saturday we spent the whole day sketching round and about. Taman Mini is quite a big place one day isn't enough to sketch all the interesting finds. First stop was by the outdoor grass of Museum Indonesia (above). Quick sketch then go. 

Inside Museum Indonesia. The intricacies of these dated accessories are inspiring.
My friend Jesse in the museum.
Ah, my favourite part of the trip, sketching fishes!
The walk was the tiring part but anyway it was a great day anyway.
Jesse, Thomas, Annie, Mogri and Jojo, thanks!

Line contours. Amour, Acide et Noix, Salihara.


"Amour, acide, et noix (2001) speaks of solitude, but most importantly of the endless tenderness of touch, 
the harshness of life and the desire to eschew one's body as the main means of human existence."
Watched the show at Salihara Festival last Tuesday. It was a pleasure to watch this artful piece that is still being performed until today. 
I was almost live sketching in the dark because of the very dark background, but the lights gave beautiful contours on the dancers bare skin and their raw movements.

Waiting, drawing..

This was done 2 weeks ago. It was an early morning at Terminal 3 waiting for my flight to board. Not so much people around but I like the peace and quiet. 
Terminal 3 was much more spacious because of its hangar style airport. Later on, I didn't realize I had to use the same ticket again on return so I was pretty embarrassed showing the check-in lady at the counter my flight ticket full of scribbles. Oops..

Ballet book illustrations in progress.


Today, I've been finishing up some illustrations for an oncoming book guide project.
It's still unpublished at the moment so I cannot really tell the details yet.
There's a few more to go before I submit them; almost done (happy).
Here's a little picture sneak peak of the work in progress so far.
