[Exhibition] Hand-drawn London (Museum of London)

When I was extremely busy with my assessement, I heard about this samll exhibition "Hand-drwan London". Altough there wasn't any free time, I just went to Museum of London to see the exhibition.
Well, it was worthy to visit!
There were 11 hand-drawn maps of London.
Among them, some maps looked very professional but the others did not.
However, every map was lovely and inspiring. 
As it's described on the website (http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk),
it's not as a factual or geographical tool, but based on the individual experience,
perceptions and imaginations of Londoners.

This exhibition reminded me how strong the power of hand drawings is!!
The hand drawings have somthing more than photography or digital images have.

So, my conclusion is?
I should carry on my hand drwaing!!

[018] This is for my lovely friend.

This small paining is for my lovely friend.
I wanted to give her something special because it was her birthday.
I found the small size canvas which I bought long time ago.
(In fact, it's my first time to drawing somting on the canvas! What a fun!)
Using brushes was not familiar but I really enjoyed the time.
I wanted to give her postive and bright energy through my painting.
Yellow green is one of her favourite colours!

Happy birthday to you again.

[017] from my old sketchbook - travelling sketches

It was my frist time to travel on my own in 2006.
I was really happy with the sketchbook and one black pen. I didn't need any special root or plan.
I simply enjoyed every single moment. I was happy, excited, sad, tired and lonely. 
After travelling for 75days, I came back with two sketchbooks and one diary.
There were lots of stories, places and people.
I would like to find the speical feeling and enthusiasm which I had at that time.
