[drawing] 謝謝農 / thank you farmers


Recently I have had few commissioned drawing projects.

The above pictures shown are pages of an article "謝謝農(Thank You Harmers)" from Vol.784(15/09/2014) of a local magazine,“Weekend Weekly”.  I made the illustrations for this piece of article. The drawing process was really enjoyable because I love drawing veggies and fruit. And it is much delightful and exciting to see my drawings being published.

最近我有幾個畫插圖的工作。

上面的雜誌內頁是第784期(15/09/2014)《新假期週刊》雜誌有關香港農夫的專題《謝謝農》,這是我其中一個畫插圖的工作。畫畫的過程很愉快,因為是我很喜歡畫的蔬果。而且看見自己的畫作能夠被印刷出版實在很興奮。

[Hong Kong] P i n g C h e / 坪 輋 ,


This summer, I started spending random days in Ping Che, a place locating in New Territories North East,  to find out more about local agriculture while learning some farming skills and listening stories from experienced farmers. My original intention to be there was not related to the recent New Territories North East Development incident indeed but just wanted to learn more about where I am living in. I believe there are many more than skyscrapers, shopping malls and theme parks in this city. To every one of us existing in any society, farm field is indispensable. Not only does it provide us daily necessities,  but it is also a kind of education which allows people to appreciate the intimate relationship between human-being and our great nature.

這個夏天,我不定期地去了坪輋-一個位於新界東北的地方。如果有留意新界東北發展計劃,應該對「坪輋」二字不陌生。我來這地方的初衷其實與這發展計劃不相關,純粹為了了解本地農業,以及更了解我生活的城市,並順便從經驗豐富的農民身上學習一些耕種技巧。我相信在這個看似繁華的都市,還有更多比高樓大廈、商場和主題公園更值得我們發掘。對來自任何一個社會的所有人而言,農田是生活不可或缺的一部份,除了為我們提供生活日常所需,農田更是一種教育,讓人們體會到人類​​和偉大的自然的親密關係。

A very old village store that is no longer to be open. / 永安士多,一間已停止經營的舊式鄉村士多。

Freshly harvested little tomatoes. Tasted so sweet! / 新鮮即摘小蕃茄,很清甜!

Sometimes, companions and I would borrow bicycles from our villager friends to cycle around and explore. / 有時,我會跟同伴一起向相熟的村民借單車,到農田間踏單車到處探索。

[little treasure] miss Ladybug

       Untitled

In one dusk stroll, I picked up this tree branch from the ground and played with it. It probably dropped off from the tree nearby. Then I found it had a beautiful shape and hence took it home. It is now the new home for Ms. Ladybug.

某天黃昏散步時,手多撿了地上的樹枝把玩,應該是從旁邊大樹掉下來的。之後發現它的形態蠻漂亮,便又把它帶回家。它現在是甲蟲小姐的新居了。

P O R T F O L I O ,



Hope you all are doing good and are not melted in this super hot summer.
