“it takes strength to admit weakness”
A personal sketch done out of a burst of emotions. Admit it, it is not easy to share your weaknesses. There’s a lot to think about especially when you grow up. You are more worried about what people might think of you, especially in the professional field. You want to appear tough and strong and that there is nothing difficult enough to put you down, and yet you cry in the washroom because you had to put everything that bothered you aside. But my friends, admitting you have a weakness doesn’t mean it’ll get in the way of you achieving what you set out to do. We learn and get tougher everyday. As long as we keep fighting and trying, we’ll get to where we want to be. It’s okay to cry, we are only human.

“All I wanted was to go to the ball…”
This piece is made from wilted lilies that the boyfie gave me for my birthday. They still smell good!
This can also sort of describe the mood I am in now! I came down with sinus and occasional bad migraines this week so I’m under “house-arrest”. It’s supposed to be an eventful August for me, diving on the first weekend, Rainforest World Music Festival this weekend and 10km Kuching Marathon next weekend! Might skip Rainforest because of my stupid head. Hope I recover in time for the run!

This one is done by my dear colleague, Janani and I. Well, I pasted the white flowers together, that’s all. haha. LOVE the flowers they bought this time! White chrysanthemums are so pretty and the roses are huge!
Here’s some eye candy for ya’ll. Referred to a random hot guy on instagram. Thought it’ll be nice for the summer and motivate some of you to get that beach body! Done with color pencils on an A4 paper. 

And this is a not so hot self portrait of how I’ve been feeling for the past week. It’s been extremely hot in Borneo, plus I’m PMSing, resulting in a tired, ugly-feeling, super uninspired and not-so artsy Daphy. Painted with Sketchbook Galaxy on my Samsung Note3 smartphone.
Let’s hope things will get better next month as my birthday is coming soon! 😀
Hope you are all doing better than I!
There is beauty in everyone and everything in this world. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Everyone has an interesting story of their own. It’s just a matter of who the appreciator is, and how long he/she stays to learn, and to understand, to see the true beauty within. 
I’ve always believed there’s someone for everyone, and not everyone is attracted to the same things. Everyone’s got the right to choose what they like to do, how they want to live their life, whom they should love. Hence, never doubt your beauty or loose faith in yourself or the path you choose. You’re here for a purpose be it big or small, everyone’s role is important for this world to be balanced and beautiful. And someone appreciates you for it, you just might not realise it.
Drawing with ball point pen on a6 paper. It’s been a while. I love the simplicity of black and white, and shading the details in gradually. I enjoyed this piece a lot, I enjoyed the message it carries even more. 
Happy labour day and long weekend loves!

Because tomorrow is Monday
The weekends just pass too fast. Wish I had more time to play with my new gadget! Just got the new Macbook Pro yesterday. Had so much fun with it! Above picture is a quick conceptual light study. Hope I can produce at least a sketch like this everyday now…  Till the next time, good night! 🙂
I have a dear friend who dives very very deep depths for a living. This was Soozie Q. A great creature that he still respects even though its a threat to him and his mates.
This is actually a horrible sketch where everything went wrong with the pencil shading that I had to bring in the charcoal and pen to sort of ‘rescue’ it. Whichhh turned out… um, turned into… well, something some friends now call ‘my style’. lol.
