畫畫。創作

Glick Park 東河寫生

Glick Park 東河寫生

一直想要參加 Central Park Sketching & Art Meetup Group 的寫生活動,這是在meetup.com網站上的一個團體,每個月都會舉行寫生活動,地點是紐約的公共場所如公園、美術博物館之類。紐約有好多公園和美術博物館,因此每個月都可以藉著寫生,去探索一個我沒去過的地方......

全家福插畫

十月我回台灣三個星期,現在回到紐約了,在調整時差的同時,也完成了一件朋友客戶的委託案。 

Alice 在五前年委託我設計她的插畫結婚喜帖,因此我們變成了朋友。之後我又在她生了第一個小baby、買了第一棟房子、到現在生了第二個寶寶(外加養了三條金魚)時,幫他們畫全家福插畫。這是一個很特別的經驗,用我的插畫,記錄他們家庭的成長歷程;於此同時,我的創作事業也不斷前進。這也是我的創作成長的紀錄。

很榮幸能用這樣的方式見證一個家庭的組成,謝謝Alice給我這個機會,讓我的畫陪伴他們一家人。

Old Illustrated Journal - My Gypsy Life

I was flipping through my old sketchbooks, and found some very interesting pages such as this one. I traced my right foot and wrote down the cities and countries I've lived in, from my childhood until 2007. My Gypsy life. I also noted all the places that I had accidents and hurt my foot (one was where my Dad broke his leg). I don't even think about those experiences nowadays! This page just reminds me how I've documented my life and memories with art journaling.

I should start journaling again.

It's time to order holiday cards

I can't believe it's October already! This year seems passing very fast. I am glad to say that it is probably because I have been so busy! I have accomplished a lot, and have made a several licensing deals. I will share them once they are ready for sale. 

I got two holiday cards are hitting the shelves this Fall. One is for Trader Joe's, one is for Minted. The Minted card is already for sale. It has three color options, can be personalized on the front and back. I've got some sales today! So happy!

If you'd also like to order my cards for your family and friends, please visit my Minted shop here.

vintage cameras

I've been (obsessively) watching "Mad Man" lately and am fascinated by the design from '60s. I love women's fashion style, the furniture in their home, the colors, the patterns on the fabrics etc. from that era (and the show). Although that design style is from 50 years ago, but it has a very modern and timeless look.

Speaking of MOD style, this is my morning drawing of today. Not sure what year these camera were made but I think they are much more beautiful than the cameras we have today.
