Sometimes... you look for love, and you don't see that someone else is looking as well... additional puns in the magazines if you can make out the words...

Totally done in Freehand first, and then in PS. So it's a 100% digital drawing.

A ship's boy, just coming down from his ship, is captured in this image against the port, much to his surprise.

If you think the boy's eyes look weird...... well, i couldn' think of a way to get the white part right on my PC..... gomennasai...... (^^!) So i left them out altogether.

The boy was done in Freehand, and the background image is one of my holiday shots, digitally altered in PS.

A simple illustration, inspired by incessant parental bugging in the name of good sense. Sometimes when your parents give you too much well-meaning but unwanted advice, you just get so irritated you wanna scream out at someone. Or head for your PS program.

All done in PS.

We are the music-makers
And we are the dreamers of dreams.
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams; -
World-losers and World-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems

~ Arthur O'Shaughnessy

I love that poem. Seems to sum up everything about being an artist.

Losers in pen and ink, and colour and background in PS.

Spring is in the air
A bouquet of fresh roses in hand
As the sunshine falls gently to earth
It touches her skin so fair.

A 2nd rendition of the original work... How my original Spring Gal has changed since the very first time I put her up in this site. ( Look at my gallery to see it ) I hated the cheesy borders I put in at first, so I changed it to this, and added in rays of sunshine to fill up the empty space. Hope you guys like it.

I'm standing on the bridge
I'm waiting for a sound
I thought that you'd be here by now

It's a damn cold night
Trying to make it out this time
Won't you take me by the hand
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are but I'm
I'm with you
I'm with you

Inspired by the song "I'm With You" by Avril Lavigne, this image came to mind when I happened to hear it on the radio one day. A little girl, standing by the bridge, not knowing whether to cross, or to go back home.

The girl and bridge was done in pen ink copic, while the rest was in PS.

Don't think that it's as nice as Dragon Lady, but it's meant to be a companion piece to it. Phoenix Lady ushers in the New Year, burning the ashes of the old so that a new one may arise.

You know the feeling. You're on your way home on the bus, there's rain pouring outside, and the artificial lighting inside just makes you so depressed. You just sit there, looking outside, and hoping the rain would stop.
