Seems like having no wi-fi yesterday activated my productivity. I was looking for some activities that can do without using the internet and luckily I had my dear Photoshop. So, tried to juxtapose one of my earlier watercolor drawing and another handwriting which once occurred from boredom. That’s why sometimes you shouldn’t wait for an inspiration to come for you, but just TRY!
I believe that they are more inspired together. What do you think?
Spring always reminds me of an hair crowned with flowers, just like carrying a garden on your head. This idea inspired me to make an illustration. Here is the product 🌺
Nowadays I am practicing big eyes and facial expressions for my character illustrations. I took one of the photographs of my twin sister as my source to illustrate. Also, I am really addicted to give my characters sweet colored cheeks. I should have been exaggerated the color that she suddenly turned out be a ginger. So that I will be calling it as “Ginger Dilay” from now on. But it would fit her, I believe. Don’t you think so?
A new way of illustrating joy!
Since I have a long holiday till the next semester, it is a great opportunity for me to start my watercolor trials off. I have been highly interested in watercolor illustrations and watercolor calligraphy for a time and finally had my winsor & newton watercolor kit to kick it off. (finally!) WUHUUU!

After a few trails I have decided on making a “30 days watercolor challenge” for myself to practice more and take my watercolor skills to the next level. Here is the product of day 1: sea creatures. This time unlike my previous works, I have tried using pen as an addition to watercolor. What do you think? Any suggestions?
Today I had a very inspiring experience. Our university was hosting several workshops for last two weeks and they made the closing with a workshop for the use of watercolour in architecture. Actually it took around 5 hours but I really did not notice how time has past that rapidly.
I was mostly familiar with qouache and oil colors however it seems like from now on I will start to work on watercolour more since it is really fun to blend colors with water and to let them dance in water 🙂
Here are some of my initial trials from our workshop:
