    Getting “screwed” at the dentist’s

    After bidding farewell to my Tooth #19, and patiently waiting for my gums to heal, I finally got on with Part 2 – getting my tooth implant in place. Nurse: “How are you feeling?”Me: “Erm… nervous?”Nurse: “Don’t worry, you got your tooth removed with local anesthesia! This is going to be a breeze!” True enough,…

    2020: August/September #1secondeveryday

    August was all about reading more (๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #SummerStride yay!!!), sulking less about the weather @loveyoutothesutrotowerandback, and drawing birds @alternativebirdfeeder September felt like we are inching out of a long hibernation… reconnecting with people and the great outdoors. { Afterthought } San Francisco turned orange on 9 September.

    Rethink conventional birdfeeders

    Last year this time, we started a rooftop party for the backyard birds with two pairs of worn-out Converse shoes and a broken suitcase – it was great for many months until we made an “extraterrestrial discovery“.

  • We Are One: May 29 to Jun 7

    We Are One: May 29 to Jun 7

    I miss making dog ears out of my film festival catalogues and looking for seat numbers in the dark, but I’m not complaining. Today, twenty-one global film festivals have come together, as one. Before I was able to travel, films played a big part in my late-teenage years and early twenties. It was the portal…

  • Experimenting with colours

    Experimenting with colours

    As I started drawing again, I wondered if I should experiment with colours and wandered off getting a watercolour paint set. It has been twenty years since I last dabbled with watercolours. I had fun doing that bit of colouring for the day, but soon realised the constraints we would face with coloured illustrations. Nobody…

    Little steps towards the greater good

    Jon has sent me a draft to his novel and tasked me to draw. I’m not sure I’m up for it, but I’ve started on the littlest character in the story. The Western Honey Bee is a new friend that has turned up on our rooftop since March. Every day, the busy bee buzz around…
