February sketches

Ever since February I've been sketching on small notecards attached by a clamp ring. I really like it since its easy to carry and I can write little notes on the back. I just carry that and a black pen. 
Today I took some time to color in my Feb cards

Day five in Prague

Its 9am on a Sunday morning and I'm looking out through the window at the snowy sky drinking some fruit tea with honey. The snow is floating in little whirls and theres a plushy layer of the white fluff on the parked cars below. This is far different from the usual sunny Cali sun I'm use to. 
I already moved into my room in Old Town Prague, my classmate/best friend will be arriving later in the afternoon and tomorrow we will start our first day of class as exchange students. 
I lived in SoCal for my whole life, I would often travel to Taiwan during school breaks but this is my first time being away from home for such a long period of time. My mom was kind of enough to come with me for my first week. She wiped and swept the floors twice and made sure the kitchen is filled with all the essentials. (My mama is awesome) 
So I am not good at this, blogging...and being constant on it. I get self conscious but I am going to do it. I keep numerous journals and sketchbooks where I document things daily but I never got the habit on documenting my life digitally. Yet I decide I will do my best to give it a shot. I want to vlog on youtube and blog to share my experiences. Maybe no one is reading this and I'm just typing by myself in my orange wall apartment room, because who still actually use blogger? (or is there a whole blogger society that I'm not fully aware about...if there is, I want the in) 

But here is a disclaimer, I am not a writer. I write as I talk and just mark down whatever is in my thoughts.( I'm probably not going to edit and double check my post that much, because then I know I'll think it takes too long and I get lazy and I'm going to stop...)

So what to suspect? 
This is what I am aiming for. (yet nothing is set in stone)
  • Post a art post on my blog at least once a week
  • Post a youtube vlog at least once a two week
  • Post a written post on my at least once a three weeks
If I have nothing to talk about or I have no art work to show, I won't force it. But I will do my best to push myself to be constant. I will be as candid as possible. 
I will be in the beautiful town of Prague until June, if you want to join me in this interesting adventure, you are more than welcome.

Figure Drawing

For some reason one of the most calming activity I can think of is sketching live nudes. There's something so beautiful studying the human form.
