Caffeinated: Day 4

I had coffee today at a local cafe/grocery store. It was good but to be honest nothing life-changing. I was short on time today, so today's drawing is a little more "rustic". Yes, the pencil lines are left in intentionally. There is absolutely no other reason. I also didn't realize how hard it would be… Continue reading Caffeinated: Day 4

Hot girl summer diet

Back with another quick doodle. I was inspired by artists on Instagram, most notably my mom! She encouraged me to participate in one challenge about drawing instant ramen. I don't usually eat ramen, so I went to pick up a pack that was the most (pink and) aesthetically pleasing to draw. The shiny reflections on… Continue reading Hot girl summer diet

Sunny Side Up

Yolky. SketchBook. 2019. I have drawn and painted my hands too many times to count. To make things more interesting, I decided to have my HowToBasic moment. My vision was a more detailed study of the reflective surfaces and layering of paints. The thin layer of yellow paint definitely helped to create the illusion of… Continue reading Sunny Side Up

Pesto Best-O

Pesto Best-o. SketchBook. 2019. It is probably like my 5th time watching Friends, and it never gets old. Is it a coincidence that I happened to watch this episode shortly after I drew a jar of pesto sauce? I think not. And if you are wondering why I was drawing a jar of pesto, I… Continue reading Pesto Best-O

You Never Shined So Brightly

La La Land came out in 2016 and I just discovered it this year. Just a bit late to the game...I decided to watch it while waiting for a flight home for the summer. What a sight that must have been. I am pretty sure I cried at one point too. Ever since watching the… Continue reading You Never Shined So Brightly

dinner is served: mac n cheese

mac n cheese. SketchBook. 2019 I hated the Kraft dinner stuff growing up so I always assumed that mac and cheese tasted bad...Until this year. One of my friends makes some of the best mac and cheese, and I have been converted ever since. This recipe from The Chunky Chef (https://www.thechunkychef.com/family-favorite-baked-mac-and-cheese/) is pretty similar to… Continue reading dinner is served: mac n cheese

Spicy

If you know, you know...🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶 Spicy. iPad: SketchBook. 2019. Lao Gan Ma is a really good chili sauce from China. There's a video of John Cena confessing his love for it. Hahaha. If you google the sauce, you can even buy Lao Gan Ma merch. 😲 Look out for more art related things in the… Continue reading Spicy

Feast your eyes

Dim sum has a special place in my heart, especially those from Cantonese dim sum restaurants back in Vancouver. My family is from Shanghai, so our version of dim sum is a little different from popular dim sum foods in North America. My mom hates going to the restaurants because they were so loud. I… Continue reading Feast your eyes

The Perfect Combo

When your sandwich is perfect...Ahhh..It's priceless. It has been a while since I posted. There's no excuse but during the time that I was gone, I did many things. One of them being perfecting the best sandwich combinations...At least to me they are, keep in mind I am no masterchef (shocking). Here are 2 of… Continue reading The Perfect Combo

Bananas for Bananas

  Go bananas for what makes you happy. I was in a rut the last few weeks during my midterms (still a little bit right now). When you put everything down to do things that don't make you happy, (cough cough cough- organic chemistry) you can get in a rut. I put everything down to… Continue reading Bananas for Bananas
