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.

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.)
