The Architects... of Love ;)

I received an order from a talented and friendly girl who's currently pursuing her Master in Architecture and whose boyfriend is a blossomed architect already.

I have the feeling that this active girl is very very good at what she does :)  She has two great websites showcasing her passions in Life... do check them out, I'm sure you'll enjoy what you see and read...  :)

Hot Air Balloon of Love :)

My lovely client has asked me to make a painted 2nd Anniversary Card... that will feature her lovely self and hubby... with lots of love surrounding them.

So, I came up with the idea of them riding on a Hot Air Balloon... with some Love shape balloons flying and scattering in the background. Hmmm... that reminds me, isn't this week's theme at the Illustration Friday Blog  is SCATTERED?

NOTE: The wordings inside of the Card- given by Client.


Anyway, I'm so glad she loved the idea and the result! :))

Thank you Selina... for giving me the chance to create another Card for you and for reminding me how beautiful a love can be.

A Day to Remember...

Last Saturday, I really had a HAPPY Birthday :).

Thank you for each and everyone who took time to wish me... especially @ my FB.

My Bee and I went to the CITTA Mall , Ara Damansara, for the first time and celebrated my day with a delicious lunch at Chili's. The friendly staff at Chili's presented me with a sweet little ice cream cake (after my Bee informed one of them about my B-Day... and it's Freeeee!) and they were thoughtful enough to take our pics with their instant camera too!


Both of us feel that CITTA Mall is very nice and has that 'airy' outdoor feeling that most Malls don't have. My Bee said the Mall was made for smokers like him because he could just smoke outdoor at anytime, anywhere. Hmmm :/. It has so many F&B outlets you can choose from and the parking space is quite spacious and the entry is still FREE as of right now :). 

Later in the evening, my sister treated us at Tutti Frutti, Taipan USJ. Yummy yummy yummy!!! I LOVE it!



And then Mom told me to drop by her house because 'someone' from far came to the house... and would really like to meet me. So, my Bee and I went inside... and suddenly, everybody yelled, " SURPRIIISEEE! Happy Birthdaaaaay!". 

Awwhhh... I was really a nice surprise :). Really. Thanks to all of you. Even though the cake was very small and everything was so simple... I just couldn't ask for more. 

My Bee gave me something so precious. Something that I've planned to buy for a long time and saved my money for it. A graphic pen tablet...


WoW! Now I can draw straight into my computer! Thank you so much, Bee.

All I've been doing these past few days was playing and getting familiar with this new gadget. I'm literally having so much FUN! Of course, I would still be doing original artworks on paper but this is something additional to my digital skill that I'd like to acquire... which, in some circumstances could help save paper usage and time too.

Already I've tried to make a small little character and it almost looked like I was drawing on a piece of paper... except it took me a little longer to create it because I felt awkward holding a pen but my eyes had to stare at the screen. Not as easy to coordinate like I first thought. Only time and practice will give me chance to improve. But here's the result:


And then, Ayu Jamal at ayujamal.com, at the same time, would like to have a little character like this for herself. So, I changed the outfit to her request :)...


I was glad she loved it and felt more determined now to explore more with this new toy of mine :).

In the meanwhile, at my parents' house... the engagement event is just around the corner. My younger sis is getting a little anxious but excited. Most of the gifts to the Guy's side have been prepared. My Mom and Auntie  did most of the craft work which I think looked simple, sweet and beautiful...


Well, I hope you will have a Nice weekend ahead.

Again, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank especially to my lovin' Bee, family and friends for your kind wishes and love to me.

Enjoy!

Featured in ScatNStyle :)



Last month, I received a very curious e-mail...

Hi there,

I found your site through Mary's art blog hop.

I love your doodles!

I am a Jazz singer and writer and extreme lover of art. I don't create it, but enjoy it! In fact, you can see one of my friend, Liliana Graham's paintings of me on my FB profile @ http://www.facebook.com/deborahprofile

I write an Art Column weekly and I wondered if I may interview you. We can do it via email (I'll send you questions to answer), but would love to also feature a couple pictures of your work!

My blog is a music / art blog @ http://www.scatnstyle.com

I have included a couple other links below, as well.

hugs,
Deborah E (aka Lady D)

Well, it was a very NICE surprise, of course :).

Right now, the INTERVIEW is over at her blog. Feel free to hop over there and take a look. 
 
Thanks Lady D :). This indeed makes my October more special.

About Deborah E

Deborah E is a smooth and sultry summer night on Bourbon Street... Classy with a dash of sass... Proof that the jazz greats have not been sacrificed to processed pop.

My Special October!

OCTOBER is a very special month for me because it's the month I was delivered to this world... many years ago ;).

But this year is truly MORE special because my younger sister (who is also... the owner of one HOT Vintage Blog named Kalerpalette) is getting engaged on her birthday which is a week after mine. And that's NOT the only reason. You see, in another week, I will be officially 3 months pregnant. Seems like Allah is giving me the second chance to be a Mother after losing my first son in 2009. InsyaAllah...


The last 3 to 4 weeks, I really haven't been well. I had some bleeding and needed to lie down most of the time. Thanks to Allah, the baby seems to be developing well when the Doctor last checked yesterday. Alhamdulillah...


Well, enough about me. 
Everything is in His hands... and to Him I pray for what's Best for me :)


Owh.. by the way, I have a cute little girl pencil sketch to share with you here.




And.. remember the Mandala I was talking about that day? I'd like to update the sketches...


It was quite fun playing with lines, patterns and shapes, ... colors too! You can do all sorts of things in the circles. I especially like my Sun-Flower Mandala :).


Enjoy!

P/S: The mood for my sister's engagement day is filling the air of my parents' house. The women of the family are busy making preparations... OCTOBER is really the highlight of the year in 2011!! YaY!!! Way to go, OCTOBER!
