【draw】beginners 01:《EXOSKELETONS》

3. "The butterfly it flied away but it came back with a story to say."

Drawing Practice.

One day, I suddenly had an idea to make sort of things like biological illustrations while practicing my drawing. My first object to practice was exoskeletons which have rigid and well-defined covering. However, as a trypophobia (probably I am...), I am actually quite freaked out by their intense tiny little body features. Though I always come across them in the fields and on the mountains but have not yet to overcome it.

【draw】Concrete Jungle / 石 屎 森 林 ,

Hong Kong.

This concrete jungle has plenty of space for modern buildings but no space for a heritage tree.

【craft】F U N G U S / 菌 ,

2. I made a paper box for keeping the fungus. / 造了個紙盒來存放菌。
3. Be gentle!
5-6. Crochet with a needle and thread. / 用線和針鉤織。



Sometimes, I craft purposelessly and simply attempt to experiment different shapes and texture with simple materials available in my material box. This time my experiment ends up a fungus like object, which has many filaments popping out and is soft in terms of both appearance and touch. It actually took me much patience and time!

【explore】LOCAL LYCHEE HONEY / 本 地 荔 枝 蜜 ,

1. A drawing about the birth of local lychee honey. / 有關荔枝蜜的圖畫。
4. A dried beehive discovered nearby beehive boxes. / 在蜂箱旁邊的地上檢到已乾透的蜂巢。
5. Lychee picking. / 摘荔枝。
6. Lychee honey drink during a heatwave. / 夏日熱辣辣飲返杯消暑荔枝蜜。

In the last summer, Eunice and I stayed in Ping Che for two days one night to learn farming. It was a super hot summer. After a series of hard farm work, a villager made us lychee honey water for relieving the summer heat. It tasted smelled refreshing and sweet. The lychee honey was made by himself and he had a dozen handmade wooden beehive boxes. Every April, when lychee trees blossom, his honey bees fly to the flowers and collect nectar. So this is how his homemade lychee honey comes from.

A month later, I joined villagers to harvest lychees, which was my first time to pick lychees from the trees. They were super sweet, fleshy and juicy. Villagers even gave me a bag of them so I can continue to enjoy them at home.

The above photos were taken at that time. Few days ago, I flicked through them and they inspire me to make a drawing about the birth of local lychee honey.

【craft】about addiction / 有關 癮 ,

I feel like that I have a bit obsessive-compulsive disorder (no worry...not to the extent of a real disorder). When I have a new idea or desire, it would repeatedly show up in my mind until the appearance of another new idea. Previously, I once had a period of time that I was unable to stop myself from crazily making things about mushrooms. The above photos showcase the result of my obsession. I was too lazy to write for them til now but some of them have already been sold out.

My mushrooms are shy and timid. They always hide up their little face. Actually, I am the same shy when there is a camera lens in front of me.


我好像有點強逼症,一旦有新的想法或慾望,腦海便不斷把想法重複 ,直至另一個新想法出現。我愛菇菇,之前曾有陣子不能自拔地瘋狂做有關菇菇的東西,結果造了這堆密集的小東西,但因為懶惰的關係直至現在才為它們寫篇文留紀念,其實有部份已賣出。
