Lunch Time Drawing | Penguin

Anais Lee

Let's draw penguins!

From January 1st I posted a drawing step-by-step instruction daily on my blog "Illustration Today". It has been fun! I started this project to help people who want to learn how to draw but are "too busy" to actually pick up their pencil. The instructions are easy, anyone can spend a couple of minutes during lunch break to follow along.  
The project is published on my Chinese blog. So I'd like to share it here in English.

Here is the first one.



a family portrait

Anais Lee

In October, I had a vacation and visited my family in Taiwan for 3 weeks. Now I am back! While I was recovering from jet lag, I completed this family portrait for a friend/client. 

Alice hired me to do an illustrative wedding invitation 5 years ago. Since then, I have illustrated family portraits for her when they had a first baby, bought a new home, and this year, had a second baby (and three gold fishes). It's a amazing feeling that my drawings as a record for their family; and as their family grows, my skills and style evolve. These drawings are a record for my own growth as well.

I am so honored to create this portrait for Alice and her family.

Thank you Alice!

Anais Lee

I received some summer beans from Blue Apron subscription. I love the varieties of color of these beans. The dark purple ones are "Royal Burgundy Bean", the cream ones are "Yellow Wax Beans", and the green ones are, green beans.

Summer beans are delicious, also fun to make a pattern.

Blossom Time

Anais Lee

I created this collection as a demo project for the online class I was teaching. In this class I shared my creative process from brainstorming, sketch ideas, ink my drawings, to color and finalized the artwork in Illustrator.

This online course is hosted at an online learning website called "School of Creative" which I co-founded with my partner, a surface designer Feng Liang. We collaborate with illustrators specialized in various illustration markets–art licensing, editorial, advertising, and children's publishing. Our courses target Chinese speaking students and artists from all over the world. 

100 Days of Tiny Drawing

Anais Lee

I've been participating The 100 Day Project since April 6th. Each day, I will create a tiny drawing on a 6" by 6" paper with colored pencil, watercolor, gouache, or any other traditional art media. I didn't set a particular theme for this project, I just started with the subject I love–food, and anything related.

From the first week's drawings, you can tell how much I love coffee and desserts. I also drew the famous rice cooker that every Taiwanese family owns one. This is a good chance for me to get back to simple drawing. I don't need to worry about whether or not I am creating art that's commercial viable. I just simply enjoy the drawing process and the traditional media. 

If you'd like to participate this project yourself, here is how. I post the photo of my tiny drawing on Instagram and update my project page everyday. If you are interested in what I draw, please follow my Instagram or my project page

Happy creating!

Artist Challenge: Colored Pencil Realistic

Anais Lee

There's an artist challenge going on on Facebook recently. The rule is that the participating artist to post 3 old artwork each day for 5 days. Then tag an artist to do the same.

I was tagged by my artist friends Flora Chang & Allyn Howard a long time ago. Now I am finally doing the challenge.

Here are some very old colored pencil work, probably from 10 years ago. My goal then was to draw as realistic as possible. Colored pencil has always been my favorite medium even though I work in Illustrator almost exclusively nowadays. This year I want to get back to traditional media more. I've been using colored pencil and other traditional media for my personal projects and illustrated journals.
