It has been a sometime since I drew something that is not black and white. I have been focusing a bit on the website, the book and the manga. When I am not doing anything serious, I work on mother’s diamond painting. She really likes those sets, but her eyesight is not what it used to. I complete those silly paintings for her. What is important to me is that she smiles. Diamond Paintings are a bit time consuming, but they look great on the wall. I have been brainstorming a bit some things. I came up with a new...

It seemed like a good a time as any to show you one of my fancy bird drawings. I like designing pretty dresses from time to time. I want to eventually be skilled enough to design fancy dolls.

Then again, it depends on where it was done. If you purposely ruin someone's workplace then it would certainly annoy lots of people.  Graffiti tends to be more accepted in other parts of the world. It certainly at least dolls up a place that is falling apart. This is a photo of one I saw while in Colombia. It looks pretty cool, don't you think. The city...

Choosing poses is always an issue when drawing. If it is a single character, it becomes even more problematic. This Dancer was drawn for the sole purpose of featuring her fancy dress. It features part of the front and the back. The face was turned to show the green earring.  When working with dresses, one has to consider whether shoes are necessary or not. These days lots of dancer go out barefoot. Their outfits tend to resemble odd patterns on bare skin. It is a weak selling point, since ballet does not enjoy general popularity, which is a pity.  It...
