100 Days

With 14 days of no COVID-19 confirmed cases locally, and over 100 days of social distancing and masking measures, our city seems to have fended off the pandemic relatively successfully. We’re now seemingly entering a new stage of transitioning back to normal life. But is that even possible? The pandemic has killed lives and closed […]

Art for Earth

Took a week-long creative detour to participate in WWF’s Art for Earth campaign. It was the week of Earth Day 50th Anniversary, the campaign encourages artists to create and share a piece of art daily based on each day’s prompt. I took the opportunity to continue my weekly cartooning Inktober52 story. It’s a lot more […]

WOTL

Watching (mostly just listening) the One World Together At Home while writing this post. Despite my fading trust in WHO, I think this is an incredibly creative campaign to connect and entertain people and showing appreciation for our medical staffs for fighting COVID-19 while we stay safely at home. I’m reminded once again of the […]

Easter Weekend

This marathon social distancing practice is really soaking the life out of me. When can we all leave our masks behind and meet face to face again? Have been keeping myself busy with studio work, calligraphy practice, and cartooning. One of the breakthrough this week was making a protective visor with 3D printing and standard […]

Global Pandemic

WHO finally announced the P-word after being criticized by many experts of its inaction. I started checking the list of global confirmed cases and deaths almost daily. It felt a bit like checking each country’s medal ranking during the Olympics. I continued my alternate working days routine this past week and still finding myself surprisingly […]

Weathering the COVID-19 Storm

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread and worsen globally in South Korea, Iran, Italy, etc. In midst of the depressing atmosphere, I seem to be getting used to these social-distancing days. Continued my alternate working days in the studio this past week, successfully carried out a few “experiments” in translating black and white ink art […]

2019-nCoV Threat

With the imminent threat of the Wuhan coronavirus and an unreliable government in controlling its infiltration to our city, I have extended the CNY holiday for another week. However, I did go back to the studio on Sat. to do some cleaning and to pack some stuff to work from home this coming week. Decided […]

Exhibition Celebration

Had the Ink Obsession exhibition (opening) celebration on Saturday evening. I started feeling the butterflies in the stomach in the morning. Rushed through the morning preparing for a guestbook and some souvenirs. Went to buy some softdrinks and snacks and dropped them off at the venue before rushing to my 3D animation class in the […]

2018 Review

My resting heart rate continued to drop from 67 bpm to my normal 60 bpm in the past week, so I ended 2018 and starting 2019 with a healthy body. Before planning for the new year, here are some highlights of 2018 off the top of my head: completed my first full marathon completed my […]

#inktober… DONE!!

The feeling of finishing my last cartoon panel for the #inktober fest is comparable to finishing a marathon! It was no easy task to follow the random word prompt each day and come up with a cartoon panel that would fit coherently into a story. It was challenging yet fun. I took the opportunity to […]
