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. :-/

cobbled walkways

leave a comment »

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.

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.
