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!
I’ve never been one for words. There’s too much to express that it’ll take a very long time to say all that I am thinking and feeling. I am really bad at this.  Even typing this short introductory paragraph took up time and frustrated me. 
I really admire Lang Leav. Being able to put so much thoughts and feelings into just a few beautiful lines is really useful.  
Anyway,  in attempts to describe this picture, I shall try my best:
We’ve all been here. Re-painting our damaged hearts, trying to keep it red with hope.  Pushing day by day,  carrying on, growing stronger,  becoming numb… Whether you’re sick of waking up to your torturing 9-5 job,  or dealing with your 13th breakup, just know that you’re not alone. And that there really is no point in taking things too seriously, because no one will ever understand the complexity of another’s emotions. So, keep calm and carry on. 
(Yes,  easy to say,  hard to do,  hence the painting, but really,  it’s not that bad) 
Watched CNN’s cover this morning on the MH17 tragedy. It was too painful looking at the video clips, listening to the discussions,  and imagining the grief of loss. I felt the urge to draw something,  to calm the sore heart.
This is a quick sketch with Sketchbook for Galaxy done with my Samsung Note 3.
Rest in peace, MH17.
