When it Rains..

My heart and prayer go to the blessed souls of the orphans who died in the landslide yesterday in Kampung Gahal, Ulu Langat. Many believed the rainfall has caused the landslide. Until today, people are still searching for the bodies. Made me think how fragile this borrowed life is..

At the same time, Illustration Friday theme this time is SOAKED. How appropriate.

Everything in life comes in pairs- good & bad, yin & yang, positive & negative, pros & cons.... etc. That's how God has made things. Depending on the situations.. rain can be either way too.

While the news above made me feel sad, the word SOAKED made me recall a wet kitten in the rain.  It's funny how a fluffy furry cat could be so very thin and tiny when it's wet.



I remember when I was small, I found a wet kitten in the rain. She was all dirty and thin. But guess what happened when she was all dried up? Yup, she was the biggest fur ball & cutest kitten ever :)

Watercolor & Ink + Photoshop
Take care, everyone...

such a cute sketch inspired by 'soaked'. Terrible about the tragedy in Malaysia, you are so right about life.

Fabulous sketch and so true - a wet cat/kitten looks so sad and different from their fluffy playful selves.

Awwww...what a very precious sketch!! Adore. That poor kitty. :)

And yes, my heart goes out to everyone experiencing tragedy from such terrible weather. In fact, I just read early this morning about a mile and half wide tornado wiping out a good portion of a town in Missouri and killing almost 90 peole. Ugh.
