Hello, everyone!  I am glad to announce that I am going to be having a little business of my own called, Tote-ables, and I will be selling hand-drawn canvas totebags!  Please go ahead and like the Facebook page here. :-)

Markl

Sketches of Markl from Hayao Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle.  He was so adorable, I just had to draw him! 

P.S. This is probably one of the cleanest works I've done.

Song of the Day: When You Grow Up by Priscilla Ahn


I just love the quirkiness of this song.  It has a simple sound and no techno beats just crowding the singer's voice.  I also love the fact that the song isn't about partying or drugs.  It conveys a very childish and whimsical message of growing up!

Bianca

Just an OC (original character) I recently created.  Her name is Bianca, and she's your sci-fi loving, comic book obsessed, 13-year-old.  She loves to design her own tshirts and wear multi-colored leggings.

I am actually very proud of this artwork.  I've been trying out a new style for digital art, and I think I've finally found one that's perfect!  I absolutely love her blue highlights and striped leggings. :)

Lovely Spaces

One of my favorite things to do when I'm bored is to look at photos of beautifully designed rooms / apartments.  I like storing ideas in my head so I can use them when I move out into my own place when I'm older!  Here are some of my favorite spaces:
I love how clean and classic this room looks.
Imagine having ALL this space to yourself?! *drools*
Beautiful kitchen / dining area! Love the shelves on the walls too.

Team Avatar Girls

I have been re-watching Avatar: the Last Airbender.  I've missed this TV show dearly.  Behold, here are the girls from Team Avatar!  I wondered what these three would look like in our world.  I had so much fun working on Toph's design (who happens to be my favorite character in the series).  Planning to work on the boys of Team Avatar + Azula & her gang soon! :)

P.S. This is a new style I'm working on!

Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens!

Google's logo for Charles Dickens's 200th birthday just caught my eye.
The art is fantastic!
Recognized Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim right away.
Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens!

The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World


As you all know, I am a huge bookworm, and it is one of my constant delights to visit bookstores and breathe the wonderful scent of paper in the air.  It's amazing how something simple like a book can bring so much joy.

My mom happened to come across this link while she was surfing the net.  She showed it to me and I was completely awestruck. Behold, the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world!  Okay, something new to add to my bucket list!  Visit all these bookstores!  I especially love these among the 20: 

  • The Selexyz Bookstore in Maastricht, Holland.  It used to be an old Dominican church now converted to a beautiful haven of reading!

  • The Book├ábar Bookshop in Rome, Italy.  Its modern design is lovely!



  • The Plural Bookshop in Rome, Italy.


  • Popular Kids' Republic in Beijing, China.  Is there a better way to spell awesomeness?!

  •  Cook & Book in Brussels, Belgium.
