Cherry On Top

It is quite rare for me to livestream when I am drawing or doodling. However, not long ago, I was in a Skype call with one of my friends from abroad, happily conversing about our lives and futures, throwing jokes at each other, and listening to music, when I started working on a rose. In the beginning, there was nothing but a huge red spot on the white virtual paper, but I have decided to show it to my friend either way. She laughed at me, thinking I was joking, so I proposed a show and talk sort of Skype call.

After a while, when my rose got some shadows and lightnings on, my friend dared me to draw a rat. Naturally, I took the challenge, and left the flower I was working on, incomplete.  Continue reading “Cherry On Top”

Magic Fairy of the Pen

After eternal struggles with finding an suitable URL that has not been taken yet, I found myself faced with yet another one. The writing of my first article on the blog. I do not remember clearly when it was that I actually registered the blog, but the post, as you can see, took a while to be written and published.

Originally, I planned on writing about a recent trip my family and I went on, but since the words I jotted down matched not the image in my head, I gave it up. I spent some other time fantasizing of another theme which might have fit, and then ta-dah! it simply came to me.

Since I enjoy drawing and doodling from time to time, I came up with the idea of occasionally posting some of my drawings and doodles on the blog as well. That is how I made the decision to allow my first article to incorporate my latest illustration, inspired, of course, by the name I have chosen for the little blog.
