friday field trip (from the sketchbook).

i am naturally drawn to earthy and muddy colors. that is how i mostly dress, and those are the types of colors that usually end up in my works. but when i look closely around the world, i find it is filled with so many bright and delightful colors. i will intentionally draw things i see with such color and then i will refer back to them in my sketchbooks and they will spark new ideas. 

this is a page out of my new book In Pursuit of Inspiration: trust your instincts and make more art. the chapter is called IN COLOR and it talks a little bit more about what i just said !

let’s sketch !

everyone who buys a book at my BOOK LAUNCH this saturday will get a free sketchbook ! we were ALL born with natural creative instincts . . . we just have to tap into them. i always carry a sketchbook with me. i think keeping your drawings and musings in one book helps keep you on the right artistic track and it’s so fun to look back through it to see your progress, where you’ve been, what inspired you, etc.

LET’S SKETCH !

i have SO MANY pairs of reading glasses. i hate being caught without them so i leave them in all of my most important places: bedside table, office desk, studio desk, car, kitchen, purse, etc . . . i always find the cutest ones at whole foods. the right pair of glasses can actually MAKE the outfit !

my dad was an avid fisherman. he went fishing every monday, his one day off from working in his restaurants. he would usually come home with a very large black bass and cook it for dinner that night, in the traditional chinese style (steamed with lots of ginger, scallions, and cilantro). this is one of my most delicious childhood memories.
