another purchase...

just bought a candle...

when i found 'lines'...

i was in korea and i was absolutely bored (not that korea was boring me, i was just bored), so i bought the first sketchbook i found (which happened to have all those inspiring ;) quotes - read previous post), and started drawing my dreams.
it was the first time i used lines as the dominant technique to illustrate.
i was obsessed by lines ever since...


when i found 'lines'...

click on the image to enlarge it. 
... it did inspire me. i know, i'm cheese.

vintage doodles

so this is what i did in college. daydream + doodle.
i did get in trouble a lot for drawing caricatures of my teachers.
once, this odd, but interesting looking teacher caught me drawing him and he asked if the caricature did really look like him. i accidentally said: "better." i meant it the other way around, but oh well.
these are no caricatures, just doodles...

what about 'them sleeping birds?

they'all sleeping on the power line. crazy...

For Mother's Day:

you'll find amazing hand made + unique products.

if you're interested in a bdb personalized gift for your mother,
please let me know.
i'll make it special ;)

i.e. tea sets, coffee sets, breakfast sets...

My First Etsy Purchase!

I just made my first Etsy purchase.
A soap bar! 
I love soap so much, I could not  resist this one.
I'll let you know what I think as soon as I receive it.
