Something About Owls.

It’s like some weird addiction, I can’t stop drawing and making owls. There are just so many ways to characterize them, you can give them so many different expressions, eyes, colors, shapes; I like endless possibilities. You know how they say you are only limited by your imagination? Well it’s true, and when you let your imagination take you on an adventure…

Drew this on the Samsung S3 with the “Drawing Pad” application. Not bad for a lazy bed doodle, but I still hate that you can’t choose the thickness of the “pencils”, it’s really annoying when you want to do proper detailing. Minus points there, but then again, it probably wasn’t made for serious doodling.

Owls on a branch. Took me half a day to make this for my grand niece the other day. Well, let’s just say I’m trying to bring my ideas to life, I really want to kick start a “line” of products for kids. With that in mind, I think 2013 could turn out to be pretty wicked, in a good way, of course. But there’s still so much to be done before I even get close to where I want to be.

Now, back to where most, if not all of the doodling begins, in my moleskine, which reminds me.. I really need one for 2013 already! For some reason after using moleskines for two years, all other diaries/schedule books really infuriate me, especially those with chinese characters in them! I know I’m chinese myself but it’s just a thing, I can’t even explain why. :/

See what I mean? They’re all owls, but they’re all so different in their own way. Pssstttt the first one got tipsy on Merlot!

And that rounds up my current obsession with owls, for now that is.

Good night! Hoot hoot!

Have you met dottie the owl & arthur the tiger cat?

Looks like they’ve made some new owl friends…. see them in store soon!

I’ve been watching this video again and again, thought you might enjoy it too. Nick Pitera is simply amazing. His vocal skills are really exceptional.

Hope everyone’s got their weekend plans all lined up? I’m heading to Jones’ for a home cooked dinner & “house party” with the bunch! Enjoy the weekend everyone! :)

A Week into 2011.

( Hard Rock Cafe on NYE 2010 )

A whole week has passed, and yes I still feel somewhat “stuck” in 2010. I don’t know what it is but some part of me still feels really unsettled. A week into 2011, I’m still trying to sink into the reality that I have to wake up and work and that the festivities are long over. No more parties and late nights. Come to think of it, I didn’t even club in December due to the passing of my aunt, and I don’t intend to be very much of a party animal this year… There’s just too much I need to achieve this year.

I’ve been hooked on movies in bed the past week, especially nights when I simply can’t fall asleep. On impulse I signed up for a 3 months subscription with Megavideo, only to realise it’s pretty tough to find full movies… Maybe I just have weird movie picks.

Was going through my stuff and found my braided headbands… I went out like this yesterday and went my dad saw me it’s as if he didn’t recognise me. Is it that bad? It kinda gives me a headache tho, like my blood supply is getting cut off or something. I have weird issues.

And if you’ve realised, I haven’t posted much updates on customisations I’ve done in the past month… cos…. I put them all on Facebook! I’m using a new page to organise the product albums, the previous group page had photos lumped altogether into one album… This one’s way neater!

I try to update items daily once they’re done, so go check it out! You’ll see new stuff I’m working on like this little fella! He’s already found a home with my neighbour Gen :)

I’m home on a Friday night, how grand. Figured I should stay in and get some work and blogging done instead of partying with a threatening sore throat. I had way too much Ruffles the other day. The things you enjoy aren’t always worth it! :/

Later ya’ll.. ♥ jean
