Spending some time with 7 years old Fatimah one evening, I made a quick sketch of her. She asked for some lipstick and butterfly earings. Doodle on top left, made by Fatimah.
In reality and to myself, I am two different persons. One is Mangosteenskin. And one is Not Mangosteenskin.
Recently, the "Not Mangosteenskin" was listed for an exam to qualify oneself for Post Graduate Teaching Course. I applied for Visual Art! I had mixed feelings when I found out that my name is on the list! Art is a subject that has never been in my profile before thus I can't imagine myself teaching art in school!
Read: I didn't make it to the exam. There's a stronger force pulling me away from that direction. But I guess when one attempt failed, there will still be one thousand other ways to follow our heart. I will continue being a Mangosteenskin, and find me here... please, anytime.
I would be busy being a "Not Mangosteenskin "this week. Hopefully I can wear my Mangosteenskin hat soon so I can work on some handmade rubberstamps.
