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.

Meadow Picnic

It’s raining so heavily today, moody and gray weather, and getting colder and colder. Start to miss summer now! 😉

The Woodpecker

I don’t know if you have ever heard about the legend of woodpecker, a story about a selfish tiny old woman who didn’t want to give her food to save a hungry guest. While in Chinese culture, woodpecker is more of the positive symbolic meaning, it’s a diligent hard worker, a kind helper in the forest, smart and with creative vision, full of knowledge and with a warm heart. Very interesting when I found out the very different symbolic meaning in different cultures!
