Firefly propeller wing

Sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is the Firefly Airlines propeller and wing from my window seat. I sketched this on Thursday before the plane went through turbulent weather. Normally I don’t sketch in moving vehicles or planes because I get motion sickness so I really don’t know how this happened.
Let your Dreams take to the skies.

I am grateful for my safety. Thank you team Firefly ♡

The crew of Firefly

Yesterday I flew  FIREFLY from Penang to Subang but the plane could not land due to bad weather. The plane circled Subang airport for 20 mins. Captain Zainal decided that we had to fly back to Penang before we ran out of fuel. We arrived back to where we started. Refueled. Tried again and finally 3 hours later, arrived at Subang, safe and sound. I am grateful. Thank you to the Firefly team
Coincidentally I took these photos of the Firefley crew before the incident. I woke up in the morning and some higher powers compelled me to do this. Now it makes sense… or does it?

1975 classic vintage Mini 1275 GT

sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is classic vintage retro 1975 mini 1275 Gt. My first car. This one I coloured in orange but mine was purple. I dont have a purple faber castell marker pen.
When I turned 16 my dad asked me what car would I like.  I replied instantly without a doubt nor hesitation, “I want a car exactly like Mr Bean’s”. My dad looked uncertain, “Are you sure that’s what you want?” I replied, “Yes. In Purple.” That was one of my favourite gifts. I have since sold Petunia my purple mini and I have never loved any other car since.

Today’s sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is a Darth vadar hot air balloon.
I went on a hot air ballooon on Saturday with some friends in the Padang polo, Penang. There was a hot air balloon fiesta over the weekend, organised by Penang tourist board. It is the first time that we’ve had hot air balloons here.
Only 180 tickets were available for each session. There were a total of 4 sessions over 2 days. O yeah, we queued in the hot tropical sun for those tickets and I don’t regret it. We brought Noah, my friend’s 7 year old and the look on his face was priceless!!!

Giant squirrell

Today’s Sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is a giant squirrell. Im working on a series of merchandise for a brand new eco centre up on Penang Hill and I’m exploring some ideas of what to print. This cute little fella could be one of them. I have quite a lot of drawings from Penang hill. When I have time I need to sort them out.  The day flies by so quickly. I need to sit down
