Einstein's take on a Miracle..


Lately, I've done a few celebrity/ public figure caricatures and quotes.

Why? Not only because I truly enjoy the quotations, but I feel the need to sharpen my skill in caricaturing. What I did was, to find good pic of these famous people and then took less than 20 minutes to sketch from the computer's screen and refine the strokes. Yup.. just more practice.. and it's fun to do.. plus a good challenge for myself.. and I hope many could appreciate the art of caricature and the play of words combined..

Wow!! This has just arrived in my mail informing that..- there's a blog that has given me an honor for being in its list of Best Art Blogs. Do check the site out for your Art pleasure. From my understanding, the site was created with the believe to create and share Art as a necessity, as love and friendship. Thank you, Art Sediments! It's almost like a nice little miracle to end this year in my little blogging world :).

Again, enjoy your holidays, everyone..
Be good :).

Goodbye..


Whooaa.. we are so near the end of 2010...

How time flies. Everybody will be another year older.. and so on.. so on..

In every day of our lives.. even if we have the same routine of going out to work or schedule to follow- life still manages to surprise us with unconventional events or encounters. Every day we will wake to a different experience even if we walk the same old path for the past 10 years. Isn't life somethin'..?

For those who have dropped by my blog, joined my GA, became my friends, gave comments/ thoughts or simply checking out what I have to offer & share here and asking me to go to their blogs... Thank you, so much. My world has expanded virtually because of you. And not forgetting, a special thanks goes to my bee.. juz for.. being him :). 

Have fun and take care, my friends.

Owh.. by the way, I saw this YouTube today from a funny girl named Maria. What a talent.. She made my day :D Teeheehee..

What to do-or..?

I rarely do crafts. Really. Not because I'm not good at it (erkhem2x..!) but.. I like to draw & paint more.

I just had to use her cute little face here! eee..!!!

Today I've done something I haven't done in years. It's quite an 'ancient' craft because I remember that the last time I did this must be before I was even a teenager. And it's all because of the door.

Yup.. The door leading to my messy studio room. As this is a rented apartment, I refrained myself from using any hammer and nails.. so I thought I'll just stick to double-sided tapes- which worked just fine but I don't know for how long.

I'm calling this as some kind of an installation Art Project...hehe.. Well, I'm just going to decorate the door with a variety of stuff.. or junks that I've collected over the years.

Here's what I've got so far: An aeroplane that I put together from a leftover mounting board... a couple of clouds from the soft wrapping sheets that came with the printer early this year.. a small plastic-gift-box from my friend's wedding.. that hanging bookmark which I bought in Korea last 4 years.. and uh, that white frame which was designed for car plate numbers- I had it with me for more than 10years already. I think I bought it in the States.


Now, back to the 'ancient' craft I was talking about..
As you might have suspected.. I always looked forward for Art Classes during school days. I'm sure many of you know this craft..but I can't recall what's the name of this technique ..? Do you know?


I still remember when the Art teacher (who was also our math, english, ilmu alam & kajian tempatan and maybe Pendidikan Jasmani .. teacher too) reminded us to bring any types of papers to school- from magazines or newspaper, some glue/ kanji, scissors and a mechanical pencil with hard nose... as the next day we were going to have a craft project. So.. I'll be coming to school armed with the stuff and ready to take on any new Art&Craft challenges. At that time, this seemed to be a more enjoyable thing to do. But today, I thought, "Sheesh! Leceh plak mende nih.. why it's taking so long..?".. Oh well, age is catching up..perhaps?

Finally, it's done.. not really..but I just had to stop there.



Phew..! And this is just a small dimension. I wonder how I managed to accomplish something like this on a full sheet of drawing paper with buah-buahan tempatan/ local fruits? Was I more patient as a little kid?

A little peek at my messy Studio..jeng jeng.

Aahh.. That's all for now, folks! I'm off to do some painting. I've more patience for that.. heh.

Enjoy your weekend..wherever you are.

I hope I'm going to have a nice one since my anniversary is coming up on Sunday :). No biggie.. Just received a new laptop from bee which I'm so thankful and totally excited about. It was such a nice surprise gift..now I'm not sure what to get him..? huuu.

And the Award goes to..



WooHooo!!! Me? Really..?

Doodledesign received her first Blog Award today from lovable LIN, d' fabulous Quiller-Card-Maker. 

I've surfed, jumped and skipped.. around these bloggers' world.. I have seen so many awards received by many other fantastic blogs and I always thought.. well, even though it's just a piece of picture file (jpeg) with the word AWARD on it- not a tangible trophy or anything like that... it is enough to make a blogger feels good for there's someone out there who appreciates what he/she has to offer and share in this borderless world. Somehow, it gives he/she.. one of life's intangible pleasure deep inside.. And being validated & appreciated for your presence could always do just that :). Thank you Lin, for thinking of me.

So, here I am.. paying forward to 8 carefully handpicked bloggers, to make them feel the same :).

Accepting this award, I am asked to do the following:
  • Thank and link back to the person who awarded me this award. (ok)
  • Share 8 things about myself. (err.. err..)
  • Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that I have recently discovered. (difficult to choose..)
  • Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards. (ok)

8 things about myself:
1. 8 is my favorite number.
2. The eldest from 7 siblings.
3. Not a good cook..but improving.. (hopefully).
4. So glad hubby is not a fussy eater and enjoy simple cooking.
5. Aiming to go to Makkah next year, insyaAllah.
6. Enjoy martial-arts...but enjoy art-making more.
7. Always thank God for my family.. :)

Joining ATC :) Yay!

ATC..? No.. not "All-These-Crap".

If you're not well-informed about it- ATC stands for Artist's Trading Card.

Objectives:

1. To share knowledge and showcase talent.

2. To swap ORIGiNAL miniature arts.

3. To exchange ideas; to inspire each other; to appreciate and respect each other’s arts while at the same time building a social network of art enthusiasts both locally and internationally.

4. For FUN!


I've never done this ATC thingy before.. so this will be my 1st. The coolest thing is, it is such a small piece of art.. so cute.. only 2.5" x 3.5". When I imagine collecting this small sizes miniature arts, I know they'll be so adorable :) and precious.. I mean, they are original artworks! You've got to appreciate that. Who knows if one of the artists that you traded with is going to be famous one day? 

Mysara Mangosteen is the lovely host for this event. To know more about it, just click on her name and go to her really cool site. I heard a couple of overseas artists have confirmed to join this ATC and we have a list of other cool artistic participants from Malaysia too :) So.. this should be fun. You don't need to be an artist/ illustrator to join, you know?


Actually, I was not so sure what to do on the small paper. But, I just thought it'd be fun to have a little village kids cartoon :))







Well, I had a good time painting them kids :). I named them Din & Tee. My bee said these two characters look good enough to start a series on them. 


hehe.. sounds like a fun idea to me too. 


Have fun.
