Project ongoing

Several more illustrations for the new book. 🙂

Besides the illustration works, I’ve been teaching drawing for almost two months already. Honestly it’s my first try to teach a private drawing class, but it turns out to be really good. My student enjoys the class all the time and keeps improving. I also learned to keep the task interesting while challenging. I’m expecting my second kid so for right now I have no plan to take more students, but I’m seriously considering that maybe during fall I’ll open my drawing studio for beginner art lovers. It’s so enjoyable to share tips of doing arts with young art lovers and help them do better and enjoy more.

A Colorful Little Town

page1-2

Recently I’m working on a new picture book. It’s really fun to draw the setting of a colorful little town. I’ve drawn and painted this kind of small town several times before but every time I had some new ideas and inspirations to explore the style a little bit. This time I’ve tried to make the characters more appealing to beginner readers (the target audience of this picture book) and the overall color tone bright and cheerful.
