  4. Unbelievably wonderful. I just love that overall texture of the pieces.

  7. Thanks for the comments guys! Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to venture off into the deep dark woods of furniture design.

    Kei: Personally, watercolor is more user-friendly because it's undo-able but i still prefer acrylics.

  9. Tran! I didn't know you had a blog. It's wonderful to see your work again. I love that smokey effect you have going on in the "Don't Breathe in the Moon" piece. And that last pic looks familiar. ^.^
    I look forward to more updates. Maybe this will be what I need to kick my butt into gear about making some new stuff. ~.^
