Relax Boy, Relax Day

I try to use my cartoon style plus few background colors
for my new drawing, the outcome seems not bad :p

This is the moleskine from Fatma and all of us illustrated
in different styles. It looks cool that various artist styles
can all be intergrated in same book.

Potato, Fresh Bean and Herb Salad

This time I try to make my food drawing in a bit more cartoon way, as I love the entries of other artists in this book, they are all presented in a happy way :)

So let's start and see how the salad is prepared!

200g/70oz potatoes, peeled and cut into 1.5cm 3/4 in cubes
300g/1oz sugar snap peas, trimmed
300/1oz French beans, trimmed200g/7oz broad beans, shelled6 tbsp finely chopped mixed herbs, such as tarragon, dill, parsley and chives

For the dressing:
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp runny honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
8 tbsp fat-free vinaigrette or French-style salad dressing salt and freshly ground black pepper

To garnish:
lemonzest (optional)
finely chopped red chilli (optional)

1. Boil the potatoes in a large pan of lightly salted water and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until just tender.Drain well and set aside.
2. Bring a large pan or lightly salted water to the boil and add the peas and beans. Bring back to the boil, then drain and refresh under cold running water. Drain again and place a salad bowl with the potatoes andchopped herbs.
3. Mix together all the dressing ingredients, season well and pour over the vegetables. Toss well and garnishwith the lemon zest and red chill, if using, before serving.

Another simple but tasty entry, hope everyone enjoy~~~

Mussel and Prawn Pasta

Having been very busy for my new work and stop drawing
any art for a month, it's time for me to have fun from drawing

It's a new drawing for moly_x_57 which is a group of theme
about food~

My entry this time is about mussel and prawn pasta, it is done
by filling will color ink pen and watercolor. The background is
using torn glister paper, actually it changes from yellow to blue
from different view-angles but I can't demonstrate here :p

Anyway, it looks interesting to me!!

My New Entry ... Lamp (Instead of Lamb)

It has been quite busy for me recently since I have to move
into a new house plus change to a new job, all my work about
art are stop for some time and luckily I can continue again~

It is my another entry to moly_x_57 and the theme are all about
food. This time I choose Roasted Crown Rack of Lamb as
the topic as it looks juicy to me always in winter time~

Getting familiar with this line drawing plus watercolor style and
I love this drawing this time too ... but I just found a BIG typo
mistake after mail it out ... how come?!!

My Pet and My Portrait

Finally I completed my entry for moly_x_portrait4!! The theme
of this group is to ask each artist to put their portrait into art.

This time I try to put the portrait of both me and my pet at home.
It looks like I can handle the watercolor flow on moleskine
media this time, that makes me happy :)

Happy Chinese New Year!!

Wish everyone good life this year!

Cover, Sign-In Page and Recipe ~

My moly cover by silver marker.

The concept of my sign-in page is to collect all our people
inside the fish and keep it swimming around the world and
seeking for its yummy food.

Lobster Linguine Drawing IS Done!

yummy yummy ~

this time i can control the way how to make more color contrast
by using watercolor on the moleskine, compare to the angel
drawing for my last entry at moly_x_41.

this is my final drawing for moly_x_57, and my dish is
lobster linguine with fresh squid ink sauce.

well, filling color really can give more emotional feeling to
people ~

The line drawing is one, but what i need is more color and
more personal touch~

Food Drawing for Moleskine Exchange

After finishing two drawings for moly_x_41, it's time to start with
moly_x_57 which is themed with food.

Inspired by a receipt during the Xmas time, I start with the
lobster noodle drawing. My concept is to put those ingredients
and the dishes on the same drawing~

I apply my most familiar line drawing this time, and will put some
watercolor as background afterward, hope it will be a nice one
after it's done :p

Here Is My Angel ~

Finally my angel drawing is done! The watercolor outcome
is not too bad though I find the flow of watercolor pigment
is somehow different from those watercolor paper :p

So I clear all the books in this group on hand, and I am waiting
for the up-coming books and drawings from other members ~
