This is an illustration about whether we can stop/cure aging or not.

The Reluctatnt Dragon

I was given a project to do a book illustration of a story "The Reluctant Dragon". I chose to illustrate what a Japanese version would be, and here are the sketches and the final of the boy, the dragon, and the samurai. I wanted to paint this somewhat flat, but I was afraid it might look too flat on one layer, so I decided to put more than one layer to get some depth. It was harder than I thought to paint on acrylic paper pads.. and it sure wasn't easy to cut out those delicate lines.. I had to really focus on the tip of the knife so I didn't even realize that I had cut my finger until my finger was covered with blood, which I thought was a red acrylic paint!! But I enjoyed crafting in spite of the pain :)

Illustration Friday -Little Things-

Global warming has been one of the big issues for a while now. Some say that the North Pole will melt away by the year 2040, and also 2/3 of polar bears will die by the year 2050. We may not be able to completely stop the global warming, but there are "little things" that we can do to slow down the process, such as idling stop, recycling, less use of water and electricity, etc.. And little things can turn into something big.

No Music No Life

I just can't live without it.
