sketch + Mad Hat Wonderland

From what I see while I sketched, most of the Asians never have their cells off their hands! (am I one of the very few exceptions out there?)
No matter they are eating lunch, meeting up with friends, waiting for anything, they always have their phones in hand. We become so depend on computers/technologies that we will FREAK OUT when the system is down! (At the bbt place, the waitress ran to each table to write down their orders + bills again)
It's good that I always have a sketchbook and pen with me so all my notes are always safe. =)

I couldn't get the discounted ticket for National Ballet of Canada's Alice in Wonderland, so I went to their Mad Hat Wonderland Gala. The show was great (love the Cheshire Cat sequence; the Red Queen costume looks very funny!); we also had free food/drink and got to see a lot of beautiful hats!

random + food sketches

Sorry for the late post of sketches.
I will be busy house-cleaning for the next week or so...
plus studying French, art history or even a bit history of Paris before heading Paris at the end of the month!!
OMG! I still can't believe I'm going to PARIS!!! I am going to attend Gobelins Animation Summer School for 2 weeks (on top of class 5 of Animation Mentor =D, hopefully I can handle both of them at the same time...)
I borrowed audio books from the library to study French again (which I threw them back to the teacher 11 years ago); and art history notes which I studied 8-10 years ago... Though I used to think art history is boring, but if you know you are going to the Museum and really see the painting in person, you start to find interest in knowing the story behind the art piece. (Just like how we connect to the character in a movie more if we know the history of the character)

I will take tons of photos and draw lots of sketches there!!! Super excited for the trip! (I can't wait to eat the French bakeries, pastries and crepes! <--need to climb the Eiffel tower everyday to burn them off =P)

Sketch wise, I went back to pencil for a bit. It's nice to make mistakes in lines and refine the pose/silhouette/shapes more! but on top of my poor scanner, it doesn't really turn great on the computer. I might switch back to pen soon.
