Now on Youtube too...

I've decided to open a Youtube channel where I hope to share a little bit of my life as a freelance illustrator, what it's like living in HK, travelling and speed-painting videos, maybe tutorials?... I don't know, I'm not sure about the content yet because I had the idea while having insomnia + migraine + jetlag so I'm trying to figure things out. Many people have asked me about my painting process so my first video is of speed-painting the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz for Animal Alphabets. Hope you like it and I'll try share another video soon!
PS. Let me know your suggestions for videos.

Here's the video....

New painting challenge

I've decided to start my own painting challenge with the hashtag #10daysofacrylics. I know there're lots of challenges out there but I'm not strong enough to do something for more than 10 days, let alone 365! I'm dusting off my acrylic paints and experimenting with colours and textures. So far the end results have been a little unexpected but in a fun way. Feel free to join me in this mini challenge using the hashtag #10daysofacrylics (on instagram, facebook and twitter) :)

Snow forest

Here's my design for this week's colour collective. I'm trying to use different colour palettes in my illustrations but it's difficult to break old habits! I'll try to keep on working on that. Have a nice weekend :)

Rabbit in the snow

White rabbits everyone (that's what you say at the beginning of the month in England, I've been told)! It's funny that in many countries with seasons September marks the start of autumn but here in HK, we only have 2 seasons: extremely hot and a little bit chilly. Even though many shops are selling coats, scarfs,  boots, etc the temperature here will be around 30 degrees until December. I miss having snow, even if only for a little while (2 weeks of white thick snow would be perfect and then sunshine please). So that's my inspiration for this month's Pinch Punch Post. 

Here're some bunny sketches
