Readings and Recent Updates

Finished reading a couple of good books (Where’s God When It Hurts, Man’s Search for Meaning).  I’ve always avoided reading books on war, death, and suffering, and I would probably never have picked up and read those books if not for my uncle’s recent passing away. My uncle’s passing away seems to be transforming me still, […]

Goodbye 2017 Q1

Almost forgot it’s public holiday today.  I went back to the studio as usual after my weekly calligraphy class.  The studio seemed particularly quiet, I took some time to fold up 3 months of daily to-do lists.  Much of the goals I’ve set up for this quarter was left untouched.  Where has the time gone? […]

Creative Monday

A rainy day, not good to do any outdoor sketching, instead spent the afternoon finish reading the 5 illustrative books by Jimmy S.P.A. I borrowed from the library awhile ago.  The 5 books were of a series named Paradise Lost (失樂園), all published in 2005.  The series is consisted of many individual chapters, each illustrating an […]

Fuzzy Head

Caught a minor cold/flu with a runny nose, clogged ear, and fuzzy head.  Couldn’t quite put myself to work with this state of mind, took it easy today and watched some Olympics badminton and continued my reading of Jimmy SPA’s illustrative books. <<Beautiful Solitude>>, another imaginative book by Jimmy SPA.  There were a few occasions in […]

Creative Monday

Wasn’t feeling too well in the morning, partly because of the beer the night before.  I noticed that I’m less tolerant of alcohol after recovering from AOSD, should’ve passed the 2nd round of beer, but how often do you get to meet and chat with a good old friend?! Somewhat dragged myself to the studio […]

Creative Monday

Finally got my hands on the bible of cartooning – “The Complete Calvin & Hobbes”!  It took the public library 2 weeks to transport the book to the branch nearest me, I think there’s much room for improvement in our public services. I indulged myself with the absolutely addictive book, and did a little cartooning […]

<< The Figure >>

Took me 5 days to read and practice some of the exercises in the book << The Figure >>, relearned how to draw the human figure, face, hand, etc.  Still can’t fully grasp the gist of capturing gestures, movement, and attitudes.  Need a lot more practice… Seemingly, this week have been a detour from my […]

New Bible

Finished my 365-day devotional plan this morning!    Subscribing to digital devotional plans like this really motivates one to do their daily devotions, and at the rare occasion of skipping a day or two, one can easily catch up from where they left off. Rather than subscribing to a new digital devotional plan, I decided to […]

Bible Reading

Out of stubbornness, I shut my desktop and spent my entire day yesterday reading the Green Bible.  Stubbornness paid off, and at 1:30am I had finished reading the last word of Revelations! This concludes another one of my 2011 New Year’s Resolution!

A Reading Day

It’s been a long time since I last spent a day to just read and nothing else, almost forgot what it feels like to free myself from the daily errands and indulge myself with words.  Finished reading the Old Testament finally, and still hoping to finish reading the entire Bible before the end of 2011…
