I had to Google who this amazing person was as I watched and listened to the live stream of Portrait artist of the week. I love how this show gives a platform to not only artists but the sitters are always someone interesting and accomplished in their field.

I love George Town Festival. Every year I visit the events and review them on my blog. My friends ask me about which exhibitions to visit because they see on facebook that I’ve been to them all and I’ve done the leg work. As an artist based in Penang, it is incredible to have a month long arts festival. It is the time for me to see what other creatives are doing and to share ideas.
This year you can read all about it in Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia and follow my insiders guide to the festival.
Tiffany Choong’s George Town Fringe | Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia
“Two weeks in and BAZAAR Stylish Woman 2014, as well as Bulan Lifestyle bag designer and artist, Tiffany Choong, leads us through the sights and sounds, curious little side paths (and, of course, cocktails and cafés) of George Town during the ubiquitous George Town Festival 2015 — when an entire city is turned into a thriving arts and cultural hub for a whole month, even garnering international coverage. The brainchild of Joe Sidek, it’s literally when art takes to the streets and everyone, from all walks of life — from entrepreneur to auteur — participates. From her favourite after-hours drink spot — Chulia Court on 355 Lebuh Chulia for their fresh pineapple mojitos, thank you — to where you should go for a little post-festival Shavasana, harpersbazaar.my presents 10 things to try when you’re in Penang this August.”

Today’s sketch of the day in my Daler Rowney art journal was an easy choice. It’s of a Yellow Longhorn Beetle that walked across my desk.
Sometimes I have to look for my subjects and sometimes my subjects come to me! If it lands on my desk, it’s a sure sign that i will capture it in my sketchbook and blog about it to the world! (no insects were harmed in the drawing of this)
Happy weekend xoxo
