Pet Portraits : Dolce

Dolce the Staffordshire bull terrier

Hope everyone is well this Sunday. It’s day 33/45 Covid-19 lockdown in Malaysia.

My friend, beautiful and talented singer songwriter Chelsia Ng and I have teamed up this week to bring some joy into the world with this pet portrait series, whilst trying to support ourselves as artists.

I’m keeping an art journal during lockdown to capture my daily joys and challenges, and this past week i have opened it up to include your pets who bring you joy. This is a collective journey we are all going through and I wish for art to bring some joy and relief in this troubling times.

Pet Portraits: Pepper the Golden Retriever

Pepper the Golden Retriever

It’s day 32/45 Covid-19 lockdown in Malaysia. I have been out twice this month, the old world outside is becoming a memory as I imagine tomorrow,  looking forward to a new improved future forward.

This week’s pet portraits have been mentally challenging. I took on commission drawings of people’s most loved family members. Tackling the portraits was an opportunity for me to grow as a person and as an artist. A good friend said to me that this week has allowed me and my art to be less selfish. I think she is right.

Stay home, stay safe and thank you for the support and love ❤️

Humans vs cucumbers

If you are having a bad day, this video guarantees to cheer you up!
See what happens when you place a few cucumbers in a room full of people….
A spoof on the cat vs cucumbers recently seen on youtube that has gone viral.
No cats were harmed in this video and it is animal cruelty free. Maybe a few humans were traumatized…;p

Amazing Happy Video compiled by Sue Tan for CHULEX wedding 2014

This amazing video makes me happy everytime I watch it. Sue thought of this idea for a wedding present to the couple. She asked some of their friends to send in clips of them dancing from all over the world and compiled this into a little video montage with everyone dancing to the song. It is such an awesome idea! Thank you for making this video Sue. When I get married, I would like one too ;p

Sketch of the day no 196: Tibetan Monastery on top of Paoma Shan, Kangding, China

Kangding (康定; Kāngdìng; Tibetan:དར་མདོ།, Dardo), is the largest city and capital of Ganzi (Garzê) Tibetan Prefecture, in western Sichuan Province, China  ~Wikitravel

This monastery is located at the top of Paoma shan (Paoma mountain) in Kangding. It sits at almost 3000m above sea level. I was there last year and this is one of my favourite places I visited. It was very peaceful, beautiful and spiritual. I remember this place clearly because this is also where the monks were generous enough to invite me to have lunch with them as they ate in the garden.

This place is also famous for a folk song known as the Kangding Love song which refers to Paoma shan.
