Today’s sketch is a Malaysian wrinkled hornbill. I love birds and nature. This one was calling out to me for a sketch so I had to do it. I looked it up and learnt new things. My sketches are educating me on the stuff I like. Hornbills are magnificent and they mate for life! I liked learning about that. I am a romantic at heart πŸ™‚

Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach

Found this in my mailbox. Thank you Dan Brinsmead for this book! How did you know I’ve been looking for it!

Dan is an artist friend of mine. He’s seen me paint stewART the seagull and I’ve told him the story of stewART. I guess stewART also reminds him of Jonathan.

I’m just a little interested in seagulls. I am not obsessed. Really.

I have never readΒ  Jonathan Livingston Seagull until today. I started hearing about him when I posted up stewART the seagull a few years back. It is uncanny that stewART and Jonathan are so alike! I am so happy to have discovered Jonathan. I love love this story.

The book is describes as “The most celebrated inspirational fable of our time” Jonathan Livingston Seagull shows us that we can soar if we follow our dreams!

Bird art: Painting of kingfisher by my mum #TBT

I’m not the only artist in the family. My mum painted too. Here is one of her bird paintings. She loved nature, her garden and the birds in them.

This is a fairly large painting. Acrylic on canvas. There are quite a few more. I will post them up slowly πŸ™‚

Thank you very much to you my friends who have supported me during this time of loss and grieving for my mum. I have had really bad days and good ones. It has been a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I’m not great at sharing my feelings but I am trying to. It has been 4 months now and it gets better because I know her memory lives on xx

Hello says Percy the Penguin

Percy the Penguin has been in hiding for a while now. I remembered him when I was going through my files. I developed Percy a couple of years back for a proposal for a kid’s show. If you follow my blog, you should know by now that I love animals, hence a penguin character is not surprising! Percy unfortunately was shelved but I think he deserves to be part of the Bulan animal farm.

It’s about time I take him out of deep storage. What do you think should be Percy’s backstory?

Sometimes I still dream…Stewart the seagull is a determined bird.

StewART the seagull has been relocated from his home. These are the perils of living in the city. As a tenant, you can be kicked out anytime and replaced. Luckily stewART is a tough and resourceful Bird. He has found a new home and has taken his dreams with him…
