Finally got to work on recycled paper!! ❤
I love how the light colours just pops out! It was more than I expected. =D Especially the white ink. I am using the Sakura Gelly 0.8. JUST LOOK AT THOSE LETTERS!! ❤ ❤ ❤
The back story to this post is, I was feeding this common bird in Okinawa (Monticola solitarius) and he later hung around at me feet after hopping off the table. If me could talk bird, I be like, “Mister, you have feathers the colour of the UCC milk tea can.”
And yes, I miss Okinawa so much!! I JUST MISS THERE SO MUCH!! Can the whole universe just conspire for me to go back, and be actively contributing?? I had subscribed to job postings in Okinawa and so far the listings range from working in the airbases to fluent Japanese needed. Yes, I ain’t without shame, I do know that till now I hold a JLPT N3. I think I like no.3.
Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha…
I want to be doing something educational and cultural related. And I am particularly fond in the ancient Ryukyuan properties, so much that I have started drawing reimagined old Ryukyuan architectures. I just think that they should be restored since they have significant value and were unnaturally destroyed during the war in 1945.
And I strongly believe that the peacefulness of the ancient Ryukyuans can teach the world about living in peace.
(Btw, present day Okinawa used to be an independent Kingdom, the Ryukyu Kingdom, until in the late 18th Century.)
Learning to share my dream coz after having a dream, we start to look around at like-minded people and all those, and I am particularly inspired by this TED Talk. =D
Never know when someone can link me up to my dream.
“Haisai, we would love someone to make reimagined artwork in your art style. Are you Yuxing?”
Oh, this was the art compare that popped up on my FB A Year Ago. It was a quick sketch to so I can’t say for sure I improved A LOT at the milk tea Chocobo.
This could just to my eyes but… DID MY FACE JUST BECAME MORE MATURE LOOKING IN THE LATEST PIECE?? They literally are the same angular chin and pseudo Manga style but but but why is that age seemed to be added??
Another of the stuff that I am doing is, I am learning about PARENTING. O__O Bcoz when the day comes, I too will need to know what to do. I want to have 4 kids.
Again I am very into Mindvalley’s Consciousness Engineering. Today I missed a meditation coz I thought let’s take a break on Sunday, and then I snapped. O__O Not a conclusive thing and I wonder what message it has for me this time. Xingible is afterall unstable??? D=
Interestingly, after watching so many interviews, I picked out this reoccurring thing, that childhood has a scarily deep impact on people. Like more than we generally thought about it. Stuff like people into their 40s and 50s who are still afraid of public speaking probably have that fear instilled when they are 7 and read a word wrongly in class and got laughed at.
Another being, when you pray, be grateful and know that it is already there. Sounds like a good thing to practise on but… how do people get to that level? If I want McDonald’s and my table is empty and I am strapped for cash, how do I get thankful? Well maybe if I can do that and be first grateful, my neighbour might buy me a meal, makes sense but when hungry and broke, it is not that easy to get into that kind of higher level.
At least for me and this is what I think.
Tomorrow is a new day and I got all the great zeal to get more serious in my job search. Sometimes, things really don’t look the brightest.
Let’s play a game, let’ see with a new day tomorrow, what magical things will show up for me to be the best of myself.
