Running Happy

On a windy night in July, three thousand people gathered at the Kuching city hall to run distances from 5 to 25K to raise money for local charities. Some of us used the 25K as train for the Kuching Marathon in August - I joined them for one loop of the two loop run and enjoyed myself overtaking runners who normally race past me.

The sketch was done in the following morning, as a part of a visual journal - showing the end of the run as we headed towards the city hall.
Some people have no decorum...

Sketching Georgetown

View of Komtar Tower from Lebuh Chulia
These sketches of Georgetown were done during different times but with the same type of ball point pen (BIC Cristal) in a cheap note book. By varying the pressure on the page, I am able to produce a variety of line weights and shading.

Trees in the Drive

This is a one of my house projects under construction - this photo of the front elevation includes a tree which happened to be right in the middle of the crossover from the road. It would have to be cut eventually, which gave me the idea of planting trees in the driveway - in line with the car parking bays so that the owners can park their cars in between the trees.
