I once saw a groundhog poking its head out of its mound in a nearby county park.
This one was drawn via a reference photo.

This package of face masks took about 40 days to reach me from my parents in Taipei.

During an evening walk I noticed a lone red flower sitting in the middle of a grass land, which inspired me to draw this variation.

A pack of foxes were videographed in my neighborhood a few days ago. The captue was quite blurry, so I decided to create a new composition.

Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but when his experiment goes wrong, he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.

I drew this one from a photo (taken during a hike) and a movie still (watched during a long distance flight).

Watercolor wet spatter a crabapple tree

I don’t have the skill (or, more importantly, the patience) to draw trees so I just settled for the built-in watercolor wet spatter in Adobe Fresco.

Mongolia trip dream

I was flying to Mongolia (world map with fly route and Mongolia border).

Upon arrival at the airport, I looked for gate 20 for bus exit (looking at the terminal map).

Somehow, I went to south gate 8 for Eva lounge filled with hello Kitty stuff (casino like setup).

I went back to terminal, trying to print my photo from a computer as required to board the bus, and found out it is 11:35 am so missed the hourly bus by 5 minutes (computer terminal on the right, terminal window on the left with the road and bus stop visible).

I then woke up at 5:27 am (March 5 2020).
