Riding to see art foo watercolor exhibition at utterly art . Today I told my students that the two biggest barriers to drawing is 1) perception -if they won’t allow their eyes to show them what is out there. 2) friends - if they cannot endure the humiliation from their friends and family when they first start to draw and things just can’t turn out good..I laugh it whenever I read profile of artists that often reads: ” I was born in love with art and studied under rockstart at tender age 3”. Hell…. I was already drawing when i was a sperm..when i didn’t even had arms I was drawing on the ovaries … Ask my dad or my mum. They knew about it . #doodles #natural #bornartist #art #class #doodles #urbansketch #usksg #cherngzhi #artist #Smrt #trainsketch #igart #riding #train #mrt  (at Tanjong Pagar mrt)

Lady on the right was an angel. I zoned out as I lean against the wall and sketch. Wallet fell without awareness and she alerted me to it. Then I realize she carried canvases.

My first day of drawing class with t11. I threw them the good old evaluation test I always do to analyze their bases. It’s tough remember this years name for many of them hold much facial resemblances to old students of mine . Same faces different name. Utlizing visual cues with sketch helped a little..eventually I will remember them. . #doodles #ngeeann #art #artist #Singaporean #student #dvfx #t11 #artgram #cherngzhi #classes #drawing #sketching #moleskine #mole #sketchbook #gestures #doodling #polytechnic #sketches  (at Ngee Ann Polytechnic)

Rinchen and kharma packing up. They leave for Bhutan tomorrow. Rinchen reminded me to organize a trip to Bhutan and I told him that I hope to gather the urban sketchers for this.. but I’m nobody so I can’t promise much. He says that it will great if the usksg folks can go teach the people there . I think its a great idea since young Bhutanese can pick up new skills and just maybe be able to forge some livelihood with that.. . I will try to make it happen .. at least a good try. Meanwhile, I have a ton of things to make and for them to happen. I transfered some of the watercolor pieces of Bhutan to fat gallery. You can still see some of it here if you missed the show . Tashi delek folks.. #fatgallery #artist #art #doodles #sketch #sketches #painting #watercolor #fat #inspiration #journey #Bhutan .  (at FAT Gallery)

Drunk, sick or plain tired . I wish him luck . Met up with the Bhutanese artist for dinner and  we spoke art. Kharma says: “sometimes I think buddha already made the list who will make. Look at piccasso people just love his stuff .” I could agree more. Like microorganisms , we will select one king in each domain and that natural selection is less formulae than anything we could imagine. Hence  I no longer brother to talking about art  attribute that seemingly matters.. because they often don’t #life #art #gestures #doodles #Smrt #people #trainsketch #sketchbooks #sketchbook #moleskine #Singapore #Singaporean #conversation #rants #burps #mrt (at Jurong East mrt)
