[drawing] F a i r C h o i / 公 平 菜 ,

《新假期週刊》第816期 / "Weekend Weekly Magazine", vol. 816


The season of deadlines has arrived. As I have been quite busy, I do not have much time to keep this place undated. [crying]

Last week, I had a new commissioned illustration project. Again it is about local agriculture, themed as "Fair Choi (fair vegetable)". The article introduced a new online platform direct-selling local vegetables, a vegetable stall which allows free pricing, and a newly launched social agriculture park. The aim of fair vegetables is to allow local farmers to earn what they deserve as they have paid so much effort and time but their harvest is unfairly traded.

I was so happy to draw this since I am always interested in the local agriculture issue and feel like I gained something new in it.

死線的季節到了,最近都忙碌著,沒有時間打理這裡。[吶喊]

碰巧在上星期幾天空檔就有新的畫插圖工作,今次又是畫有關香港農業的東西,主題是《公平菜》,內容包括香港本地有機菜直銷網絡平台、自由定價的有機菜檔和最近組成的元朗大江埔村民間農業園。所謂的《公平菜》,就是讓農夫能透過直銷蔬菜,為他們艱辛的付出得到更合理的回報。

很喜歡畫農業主題的東西,因為自己本身對香港農業這回事很有興趣,每次畫完就好像有新的得著。

[little treasures] w e a v i n g / 編 織 ,


Yesterday, I spent an afternoon in the workshop of La Belle Epoque to weave with Letty The Boss. There was so much soft beautiful yarn to choose, making me indecisive. Besides, it is fascinating that the same yarn can be weaved into different forms and textures. A new addictive hobbit to have!

By the way, while I was dedicated in working with my piece, Letty The Boss sometimes lazily stepped on my piece. So cute!

昨天去了La Belle Epoque在木星街的工作室和貓店長Letty一起織布。很高興可以用很多滑滑的羊毛毛冷織布,但毛冷的選擇太多,選擇困難症又發作了。而用同樣的羊毛卻能編織出不同層次和質感這件事實在令我很著迷。

題外話,織布時貓店長會突然懶洋洋地踏過我的布,很可愛的。

[little treasures] making of dolls

School kid. / 學生哥。


Since I bought that bunch of woolly curvy yarn, I am always eager to make a big family for Hill Cheung The Rabbit. Since I do not have much time to do creations, the progress to achieve this short-term goal is still slow.
It is a great enjoyment to work with this yarn as animal dolls made out of it are very soft, like teddy bears. I cannot stop my hands from rubbing these little guys.

自從上次買了那堆捲捲羊毛冷後,便常常心癢想替臭面兔弄個大家庭。不過,可以做手作的時間不多,所以進度慢慢的。
用捲捲毛冷造的動物玩偶觸感很好,像泰迪熊一樣,加上他們長手長腳,感覺佻皮,每次一拿上手便有種瘋狂揉躪他們的衝動(我好像有點暴力傾向)。

[farming] F A R M L A N D / P i n g C h e ,


I took this photographs with my analogue camera in the past summer.

It was a cloudy and gloomy day but perfect for some work out outdoor. After doing trivial work in the little farm in Ping Che, I cycled around the farmland with Eunice. During our bike journey, I felt so calm when summer wind blew on my face with a grassy scent from the field. The farmland was so green and quiet with only rustling sound of leaves.

This place is healing.

這些照片是我在上個夏天用菲林相機拍下的。

那天天色陰沉,但卻很適合到戶外活動,因為不太熱。在坪輋的小田裡做了一點瑣碎的農務後,我和Eunice便起騎著單車在田地附近到處逛。在騎單車的旅程中,最印象深刻、最使內心平靜的是迎面而來的清風,帶著農作物的清新綠葉香氣。農地很靜,只有綠葉沙沙的聲音。

這是個有治癒力的地方。

[little treasures] M O U N T A I N S / 山 ,


I have many favorite things. One of them is mountain. I love the rolling, majesticness and steepness of mountains. They compose a very beautiful scenery. Also, when I have leisure time, I like to go hiking. Gradually, I found that I have drawn and made a lot of things related to mountains.

我喜歡的東西有很多,其中最愛的有山,我喜歡山的連綿起伏、 雄偉和險峻,構成漂亮的畫面,而且閒時我喜歡登山去。漸漸地、不知不覺間,原來已畫了、造了一大堆有關山的東西。
