Drawing on pebbles for my girls Lily and Katrin in Penang. Dragonfly for Lily and and rose design for Katrin. Presents made from my heart. They have been with me through thick and thin. I love you both. Thank you for being great friends xoxo
Today’s happy hour series sketch of the day in my art journal is a can of Asahi super dry beer from Japan. It’s not that I drink a lot I just love the design of the can.
My mum has been recycling the aluminium ring pull tabs for years and to carry on her legacy, this is a reminder to do so. My mum recycled everything. It was part if her lifestyle, even before it became trendy or compulsory to do so. She just didn’t believe in being wasteful and instilled those values in us from young.
The aluminium ring pulls can be recycled into prosthetic limbs. I have to find out where is the collection point in Penang.
Sunday sketch of the day in my art journal is a red flower doodle pattern. It’s a lazy kinda day……
Sketch of the day in my art journal shows the evolution of the post box in Penang. The oldest one is found in Penang Hill and dates from the late 1800s and the others are the modern ones found in Georgetown. It’s fun to still find the old and new coexisting.
I love my hometown for this!
Sketch of the day is a vintage floral glass tile from the art nouveau period. These were used to decorate the exterior walls of a shop house in George town, Penang. There were many styles of tiles used ranging from Chinese, Nonya to English. The town is a eclectic mishmash of styles. There’s always something new to see.
I love my homwtown 🙂
