Well, the rule is to pass the tag along... so I'm tagging Rowantree, Alison and Edric, if you guys haven't been tagged yet! Have fun!

Illustration Friday - Cold

In the biting cold and falling snow
Cowers a little match girl
Whose heart is filled with woe
Hungry and shivering with cold
She wishes some matches she has sold
To warm her hands numb with cold
She strikes a match to see it glow

A Rhapsody of Roots 根之联想

This is my first post in Chinese. The picture was originally drawn for Illustration Friday's topic, 'Roots', a few weeks ago. I wanted to use roots as a metaphor for how people can't be judged from the surface, but didn't quite know how to put across what I was thinking in words. I'll try to translate my Mandarin blab here ...

A Rhapsody of Roots

Should people be trees, the soul shall be roots ...
Neglect not the roots that lie beneath the visible

Roots that probe deep ...
Tell of a solid foundation?
Or an indication of narrow-mindedness?

Roots that spread wide ...
Show a willingness to accomodate all?
Or simply a being too shallow to boot?

The same grain feeds a hundred different peoples
The same soil nurtures a hundred different roots
Have you attended to your roots lately?

Footnote: Eh, I hope it's not too corny :cp

Illustration Friday - Lost

I thought I'd try something different this week, using just my drawing pens to complete my sketch. The result doesn't look very satisfactory, and it sure wears out my ink a lot faster than usual.

Another 'Gorillaz' Attempt ...

Here's my second attempt at Gorillaz-styled characters, I hope it's an improvement from the previous!
