it was my mom’s love for books that led me to love reading. because of her i know i can always find great hope, adventure and emotion in books. when i read i can imagine another world. when i read i learn to appreciate this world. most of all when i read i remember days and nights sitting beside my mom, reading.
happy birthday to my favorite person to read with ^_^
i’m often asked where i get my inspiration. the hubbahubba likes to say its all from him ^_^ some days i have a dozen ideas – on days like that i draw and draw and keep those drawings in a separate folder. some days i battle with the blank page and feel lost. on days like that i open my folder of ideas and look through to see which one feels right. the line drawing for this image has been in that folder for months… today felt like the right day for it to become a full illustration.
i will be presenting at the asian art museum tomorrow evening, if you’re around please stop by!
tomorrow i’ll be exhibiting at nightlife in the california academy of sciences, get your tickets now and see live reindeer, a spice forest and more! (21+)
