I really like bears, no matter how much you tell me they are not as funny in real life.

I promise I’ll draw something new for my next post! T_T Maybe I’ll use the office scanner. #minorrebel

Gangsters with big lips, and laundry

with 3 comments

I am quite determined to have at least ONE post in 2013, so here it is:

Scan5

 

The top doodle is about my love of doing laundry. I mean, it is still a chore, but whenever I am travelling overseas, nothing quite beats the domestic joy of having freshly-laundered clothes that I washed myself. There is just a strange sense of satisfaction that comes with it. Also, I love the smell of freshly-laundered clothes. Also, I like the word “freshly-laundered”.

I also like the idea of this gangster biker chick with big lips and her whole attitude is just, whatever. I could imagine her smoking and flicking the ashes on any passerby with a douche-y face she doesn’t like. That’s who I want to be in my next life (the chick, not the passerby with douche-y face).

I need to start doodling again! Not the easiest thing with a full time job that tends to consume your whole life. :-/

law school doodles

leave a comment »

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??

From 2008-2010:

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.

Sudbin, Rachmaninov, and Jude

with 2 comments

From summer last year:

I went to see Yevgeny Sudbin, my favourite male pianist, play Rachmaninov around June/July last year and it was so beautiful.  *_* He stayed to sign autographs during the interval and I got another autograph from him although I still did not summon the guts to ask for a photo. So I contented myself by doodling him.

And then I drew Jude because she also likes music, and I’m pretty sure she would also enjoy Rachmaninov.

Sketchbook page – October

leave a comment »

A page from my sketchbook from October:

 

1. I saw an exchange student studying in the library and couldn’t help thinking how cool he looked even though he was studying. o_o But when I tried to doodle him it ended up looking like a vampire instead.

2. Drawn sometime after the Westlife concert on 3 October. T_T

3. Due to the failed attempt at drawing Cool Exchange Student, I doodled the stuff on his table instead. But still cannot capture how he manages to look cool while studying. Need to know what cool pills he is taking.

Inspired by this article from BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15717341

David Cameron’s hair was surprisingly hard to draw! (See the eraser marks making a grey fuzz on his head in the third doodle.)

curious snail

with 2 comments

The snail that I mentioned doodling some posts ago:

Yes, remarkable, I know. Snails are really hypnotic to watch sometimes… There are a lot of them in the rainy season so I have to watch where I step.
