New Daily Routine

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve started a new daily (almost) habit of practicing calligraphy and portraiture drawing using a brush pen.  As much as I love doing art, I’m still very skeptical about the idea of becoming a full-time (starving) artist. Since my uncle got really sick earlier this year and later passed […]

New Studio T-shirts

Used my amateurish silkscreen printing skill to design and print some studio t-shirts.  This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.  I’m never a fashionable guy, and more like a cartoon character, I prefer to wear the “same” clothes each day. With the set of studio t-shirts printed, I’ll likely spend […]

Starting Life Anew

After a week of mourning and using cartooning and bible scriptures to help myself emotionally cope with my uncle’s passing away, I wished to start life anew this week.  I started my running practice again, made 3 short morning runs over the week, the associated endorphins generated seemed to help.  I also started a new daily routine […]

2nd Half-Marathon Completed!

Completed my 2nd half-marathon with an improvement of ~15 mins (unofficially) compared to last year!  Thankful.  Building upon experience from last year, this year’s run seemed more pleasurable and less exhaustive, it felt like I can run an extra 1 or 2k after passing the finish line!  Perhaps I can attempt to run a full marathon […]

Running

It’s not easy to pick up the momentum again once you lose it.  I skipped my running practices last week due to laziness, and when I tried picking up again this morning, I could only run 4K, half of what I had planned to run. But it’s good that at least I tried picking up […]

Running

Although getting up slightly late, I managed to drag myself into my second running practice this week.  Ran about 6K, really exhausted.  I kept asking myself why I signed up for the half-marathon, I think partly because I wanted to prove to myself that I’m completely recovered from my major illness at the beginning of […]

Monday Artist

I want to be a Monday Artist, dedicating one day each week to learn, practice, be inspired, and simply enjoy Art!  It’s like playing the 6th player on a basketball team, always kept in shape, warmed up, and ready to contribute to the team while the key players rest. It’s a bit of a luxury […]

Creative Monday

It was public holiday, but without any other plans, I decided to go back to the studio and stick to my weekly Creative Monday ritual. I read another year of Calvin & Hobbes, it was a bit of a revelation seeing Mr. Bill Watterson touched on the topic of greenhouse gases back in 1987!  Yes, […]

Saturdays

Saturdays has become more and more routine these days.  It usually starts off with me sleeping in with the alarm clock turned off, followed by the regular morning routine which includes a light breakfast while reading the daily news on my iPad.  It’s usually early afternoon by the time I get back to the studio. […]

Painting Class

Due to illness and holidays, it had been more than a month since I last joined my weekly oil painting class, felt good to be painting behind the easel again. A few of the classmates asked about my illness and wished me good health, they even saved me the chocolates and cookies they gave out […]
