I am the Tiger

Chinese Tiger painting

Drawing of tiger, inspired by ZHAO SHAO’ANG (1905-1998), HE QIYUAN (1899-1970), ETC. | Tiger in the Bush
I love Chinese paintings. The old masters were copied over and over by artists because the paintings are not just about the subject, but also the artist. The energy and brush strokes of the artist give life to the subject depicted. Chinese aesthetics also value simplicity and breathing space. It’s interesting to compare the differences in the approach to art and philosophy between the East and West.

Hear me roar!

Chinese tiger drawing

Hear me roar! 🐯
We are soon ushering in the year of the tiger and I must say I do love tigers.
Tigers symbolize power, bravery and drives away evil spirits.
This Sketch of a traditional Chinese tiger art outside a temple in my hometown is placed there as a guardian to protect the entrance.
This is week 6 of my hand rehab and drawing everyday helps the healing process. I’m learning to draw with my non dominant hand as proof that practice makes your a better artist.

International bat week

Fruit bat

This week we celebrate the Bat 🦇
They are amazing creatures who play an important role in our ecosystem, pollinating flowers, fruits and eating insects.
I have a resident fruit bat I’ve named Betsy who lives in the eaves outside my kitchen window.

I painted this quite some time ago and here he is in animation. I’m quite slow with the animation as I’m still learning and my computer is so slow but it’s been fun learning new skills. My dream is to bring all my animal characters to live!! They’ve been talking to me a lot. I owe them that. I will try.

Watch the animation here :

I’m working on a series of Star Wars pet paintings. This is a drawing in my sketchbook to see how it will look like. My sketchbook is a tool I use for many things. It holds all my memories, emotions and also ideas for projects, just as a journal does.

Pet portrait fashion makeover series 2021

Pet portrait fashion makeover series

It’s been a difficult year. There’s no doubt about it.
What do you do when several art exhibitions have been postponed and the traditional way of getting my artworks out to the public has been challenged? Furthermore our Malaysian postal service has been stopped for over a year and shipping artworks out by courier is costly.

I retreated into my art cave and offered pet portrait commissions that I scanned and saved into a JPG file that you could print yourself.

In 2021 I’ve completed :
50 x Pet portrait fashion makeover commissions.

This project was inspired by Bernie Sanders’ mittens. (remember him? )Thank you everyone who have commissioned a pet portrait and have been part of this Fabulous Fashion makeover Sketch series.
Art connects and you’ve made my lockdown life so much more meaningful and memorable.
Thank you. 💕
