From earlier this year:
I had a dream one day about travellators. I don’t remember much except that it was like a video game setting and I had to get someplace/complete something and it involved going on a mega-cool travellator that was super fast and I had to jump on and my shoes had an awesome spark-thingy and I had to lean forward in the direction I was going. I didn’t know/don’t remember what I was doing exactly but the part about going on the travellator kept recurring. So when I woke up I had to draw this girl in the sneakers and the dress that I remembered from the dream.
I wish I remember more of my dreams and in greater detail.
From 2011 I think?
Fish are some of my favourite animals… and the funnier-looking, the better. I probably started doodling this lonely Freak Fish after watching a TV program about the “Chinese fish” invasion in the US… (the real name of the fish is the snakehead). It is a fish with some ferocious fangs, that attacks humans, and can actually survive and crawl/wriggle out of water at least for a while. I even entertained the thought of having one as a pet, because (1) it can attack humans, and (2) I can walk it on a leash. Alas, so far no one has considered my idea as even remotely feasible.
Mr. Freak Fish however is not violent at all. He just has some scary-looking teeth but is gentle and a vegetarian. Think Edward Scissorhands, as a fish.
From late 2011 (something not-so-old!):
Doodled when I first decided to join Tamie on her Euro trip, and when I had the brilliant idea of visiting London as well. I don’t think there are that many cobbled walkways in London anymore, or much of Western Europe, but somehow this is the image that sticks in my head of walking through European streets.
I was cleaning out my law school notes yesterday night (only somewhat successfully..) and I realised what I have been missing the past 1-2 years: my compulsive habit of doodling! Why is it that I can’t get rid of ANY bad habits (biting fingernails, poking pimples) but I didn’t even notice losing this habit that actually is perfectly fine??
I don’t remember where this particular set of notes came from but I *think* it is from the Singapore Legal System module (on constitutionalism).
I like doodling hands and I like this particular pair. From Contract Law notes.
My favourite doodling subjects (besides fat animals (??)). For a long time I’ve wanted to draw out their story in a picture book form but drawing people is difficult. T_T After I doodled this I thought – hey, this would be a nice simple cartoony style for a picture book. But I think I would get rid of the mini eyelashes on Ted since cartoon men can’t seem to have any lashes without looking a little tranny.
I was supposed to finish cleaning out my notes this morning, but I woke up late.. I dreamt that there was a train station leading straight to Venice, but somehow the station my friend and I were headed to was an S-bahn station (with the green sign and all), except that the ‘S’ stood for Siegel, which is a canal in Amsterdam @_@. The result of speeding through Western Europe in a month.
From 2010? 2011? I have lost track of time.
A more serious-looking one. Testing out a new ink pen. (I don’t know why she always looks angry…)
A less serious one, inspired by the famous fictional lawyer Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney!!
Had to post Lady Lawyer again because tomorrow is our Commencement ceremony… This looming graduation has set off a lot of troubling thoughts in my head. One of my new resolves is to Remember that I did not enter law school just for kicks, and I should really make up for 4 years of slacking by working much harder during this training period, and during work itself. The other thing that has been troubling me is a much trickier subject and it is still troubling me AND I don’t know how to resolve it yet. :I
From so many years ago that I don’t remember (2006 or 2007):
I’m still unsure how a potato could have ended up there in my estate. It was perfectly undamaged, so it couldn’t have fallen from a great height (i.e. from someone’s window). And if a potato falls out from your shopping bag how could you not notice?? I know the Chinese believe that you shouldn’t pick up strange things – or something like that – but a potato seemed particularly un-sinister, and I was fine after eating it (or I thought so?).
It will always remain an unsolveable mystery but I recall being very pleased with myself for having found a potato.
