Swarming by tons of monsters and creepy creatures in a book I just bought "ImagineFX Sketchbook", I feel so relieved to see Mattias Adolfsson 's art works on pages 196-199, it's like meeting an old friend in the middle of nowhere..

Transformation Final Stage..."Whatever form you take, I always love you".
~Kyara, 6 yo
(My daughter asked me to draw her sitting on the monster's tail, saying I always look beautiful for her, even when
I am a monster ......tisu...mana tisu...)

Dipping and splashing in the crystal clear river steam was a wonderful feeling we got! Yay! children were wet and
happy and mother was sketching joyfully!
While sketching this page, I was sitting on side of the river under
this small bridge, right before lunch time.
And that's why I haven't finished the sketch.
On the way home, we bought some local fresh fruits from the street fruit seller. And yes, I cannot resist not to
make some illustrations of them... :)

2013 Tomie Prompt:
Over the past few years, the picture book seems to be geared more towards the very young crowd.
With this in mind, here is this year's task:
Illustrate a poem (see below) in full color for a book of poem that will be "pitched" to parents to read to their
babies, toddlers, etc.

Sunday sketching at the side walk cafe at Carlton Holiday near by the Pusat Akuatik Darul Ehsan, Malaysia.
Boiled cassava wrapped in the banana leaves, combined with
shredded coconut brought back some memories from my childhood,
when my mother made it special in our kitchen.
Today my cassava plate has a nice a cup of teh tarik as
a partner to make my morning tea perfect.
Being carried away painting, I 'accidentally' over colored the pillars
up to the top of them, haha..
