A fashion illustration I did while I was bored at a seminar.
Something slightly summer for you.
So I have recently just finished a book ‘The Happiness Project’ by Gretchen Rubin. It does sound like one of those inspirational ‘lets try real hard to gain happiness in our lives’ type of book and I definitely had doubts when I first started reading it (it was a gift from a friend). However, the reality is, the book is almost like her personal diary, blog if you may, where she shares her experience on how she improved her life through little changes. Nothing radical or drastic like going to a meditation retreat, moving to a different country or re-organizing current relationships.
I am not a good writer and this I have been told by a lot of people, so I am not going to write a lot. All I want to say is that there is a point that she makes about gaining happiness through the process of growth. That’s it – that’s all it is. If we have something to learn, a passion we want to pursue, a challenge we want to overcome, I suggest we get on it! Isn’t that literally what we are here to do. Grow as people, whether it is educational, spiritual, physical or in any other forms you have in mind for yourself. Just keep growing and questioning, because once you grow a little you will always want to keep growing. That feeling is pure joyous and definitely makes you feel like you have accomplished something in life. I have been trying a few little things myself :-)
Just want to end it with – thank-you everyone for all your support, I keep drawing because it makes me better at what I do and your support has been extremely encouraging! Also if you want to actually read good inspirational things about happiness head on over to her blog or read her book! —-> https://gretchenrubin.com/
A glimpse of the trees I fell in love with in Canada.
I have never seen trees this intricate, it was incredible.
These are 5-10 minute illustrations, travel drawings at its finest.
I know this is long due but… here you go tree drawings I did in Chiang Mai. They are unfinished and quite abstract but I guess that’s what you get in travel drawings and limited time. I should go back and finish some of the drawings but they just tell such a great story when they are left as is. I just wish I had more time, some of the trees were amazing! I have also thrown in a gorgeous image that I manage to capture from our cliff dive.

The photograph did not actually have the cap, but I added the cap to give it a more sporty look.
The colors of the cap is a cute contrast to the black and white drawing I did of the actual photograph.
