Small but Never Nameless

Garden of the Night

We were at the waiting room, at the hospital. Sara, my sister-in-law sat next to me, playing game boy. Me, having only my classic handphone with snake game in it---chose to doodle. I color it later at the office, trim the corner, put an eyelet and gave it to Sara before she went back to KL. Glad to know she likes to read, so a bookmark can still be useful coz I have nothing else to give her.

I have fun giving title to my drawings. No matter how small they are. Hehe.

Munge, Rooster on the Block, Rafflesia and Candy for Three (clockwise)

These drawings are made on pieces of leftover papers. I don't make them in a single day, I work on them bit by bit, whenever I have free time.

Kak Ida also has her own tips on what to do with leftover papers. She loves papercrafts and scrapbooking. Check her blog out! Maybe you can get inspired!

I always bought bookmarks when I am traveling. You should sell it too. hehe. One bookmark in Paris almost RM10 a piece. Damn it expensive.

Sometimes I will use postcard as a bookmark too. hehe

hi rizal!
yeyeh, rizal sudah kembali dari bulan. finally get ur feet on the ground? haha.

thanks. but better u buy a good quality stamp ink if u want to "chop" on ur artwork. klu pakai yg office punya tu lama kelamaan mcm pandai resap ke dalam kertas kalau terchop tebal sangat.

hi BCdude,
i'm still figuring out how to sell my works. haha. thanks, such an encouragement.
