Night Ride

Best of 2019

Last year, I drew with dip pens and sketched more on site. I also tried weaving in stories, be it on science or others.

Next year, Iโ€™d like to try one-cut cartoons, starting from re-drawing classics, and hopefully at some point weaving in more from my day job, neuroscience and cognitive science. I know this part of my resolution is the same as last year’s. I found it difficult to start from vacuum, and that’s why I want to start from reinterpreting existing works.

Whatโ€™s your new yearโ€™s resolution?

An Unexpected View (+ Ink)

I added ink to the original pencil drawing. I wasn’t sure how to deal with the complex lines of the trees – if I were to draw them all with pen, they would have overshadowed the church. So I tried wash and exaggerated the contrast. The moleskin paper was too thin to take the heavy wash but I was happy with the depth from the wash. The drawing started unexpected anyway.

Morning, stairs

A clear day – a rare one in winter here.

An Unexpected View

LND_0A434123-DE2C-4EAD-9E36-E2A725321AC5

The city center of Cambridge is usually busy with tourists and shoppers during weekends, so if I have to shop, I usually scramble to get out of the center as soon as possible. But this time I decided to take my time and check out a cafe my friend recommended. The inside was full and steamy, so I had to take a seat outside, and funny enough, only then I noticed the view ofย The Round Church, the 800-year-old church that Iย have long wanted to visit.

The air was hazy and cool, and as I drew, someone knocked on the cafe window behind me. An elderly couple smiled and raised their thumbs. It was a sweet unexpected excursion in the middle of the busy city.

I was implementing Graham’s helpful suggestion when I couldn’t resist going wilder. I wanted to add hope to my rather desolate rendition of a lightening-stricken treeย (below), but I didn’t want to make it an afterthought. The contrast between the strike and new leaves had to be the main theme. And probably the leaves wouldn’t need to be prominentโ€”they just needed to be there, as “pennants”. So here they are.

After a bit of walk down the river, we found a right spot to sit down. They had theirs opposite us.
