This is something I whipped up for my mom’s birthday. Just a reminder to do what you love because she told me her new years wish is for me to be more happy. I thought I was already very happy 😂 so maybe she meant for me to maintain this state of mind for 2020. And right back at her! She is always so selfless so I thought she needed a reminder to be mindful of her own happiness too. Love you Mom!

Happy new years everyone. Enjoy your 2020 vision while it lasts 😎
I love drawing but I am NOT a doodler. With uni full-time, I find it more and more difficult to find the time to sit down and paint or sketch. Over the past few weeks, I found myself “doodling” words.
I have been using this as my Christmas card to family and friends! This is a great way to personalize your cards while keeping it simple. You just have to print one design and use it for multiple cards. 🙈
I have been loving the Procreate app for drawing. The more you play with it, the more you realize that the $15 or so was worth every penny. If you are into digital art or graphic design, I highly recommend checking it out.
Cheers. Happy doodling. And happy holidays. 🤠
If you don’t go to Queen’s, then you probably don’t know the hype around sushi burrito. This creation from Kpop Sub Sushi took QU by a storm.
In fact, our club even made this into a sticker to commemorate it.
10/10 recommend if you ever visit Kingston!! 🙈
Yolky. SketchBook. 2019.
I have drawn and painted my hands too many times to count. To make things more interesting, I decided to have my HowToBasic moment. My vision was a more detailed study of the reflective surfaces and layering of paints. The thin layer of yellow paint definitely helped to create the illusion of a broken egg yolk. I decided to leave the rest of the painting half-done. You can say I got lazy or alternatively that it helps to emphasize the intended subject, right? 😜
Medium: digital oil painting
Inspiration: a fish market in Changzhou
Pesto Best-o. SketchBook. 2019.
It is probably like my 5th time watching Friends, and it never gets old. Is it a coincidence that I happened to watch this episode shortly after I drew a jar of pesto sauce? I think not. And if you are wondering why I was drawing a jar of pesto, I am proof that in art you can literally be inspired by anything.
This is the only appropriate way to compliment someone’s pesto dish from now on. “It was good-o.” 👩🍳

La La Land came out in 2016 and I just discovered it this year. Just a bit late to the game…I decided to watch it while waiting for a flight home for the summer. What a sight that must have been. I am pretty sure I cried at one point too. Ever since watching the movie, I have non-stop been listening to movie soundtrack. I have not been this obsessed with a movie soundtrack since I discovered High School Musical when I was 7 or 8.
Justin Hurwitz is such a brilliant composer. The score for City of Stars is actually quite simple but even so, the melody is BEAUTIFUL. Epilogue is another favourite of mine from the soundtrack. I highly recommend giving the album a listen if you watched the movie already, and if you haven’t watched the movie yet..What are you waiting for?! ⭐️🌙⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
