Drawing

Had a lot of fun at a drawing workshop with Rogan Hazard. On the left is his sample drawing printout and I did the one on the right.

I totally lost track of time drawing.
I should do this more often.

(Reminder to self: Rogan told me that I can go to a drop-in session at Art Student League in NY. I hope I’ll have a chance when I go there in August)

Impatience


Yesterday I took a flower arrangement lesson with a friend of mine.

It’s quite interesting something like that can show your character through the process and work itself. My piece turned out to be pretty wild with full of flowers and greens overflowing the basket. Lively, you may say. Hers was quite well-designed, fully bringing out the prettiness of the flowers. I took no time starting out and finishing up (the teacher said it was a record-setting pace for a new student) – I am the impatient one. She spent time planning and contemplating, sometimes going back to fine-tune the whole thing.

There’s no one right answer. There are many ways to get to where you want to be.

I believe in trying out new things – you realize something new or are reminded of thoughts you once reached. Plus, it’s fun to have an excuse to hang out with a friend and talk about meta stuff afterword.

Rainy Season

Tokyo has entered the rainy season. I don’t like that my shoes get wet and I tend to misplace my umbrellas often… but I like taking pictures of flowers in rain.

Someone told me today that he started noticing flowers around his neighborhood more since he’s been following my photo stream (on this blog, Flickr & Instagram). It made me really happy to hear that.
