Spring Sprouts II

Adding another background color on the previous post to create a new look and feel.


Purple background – new version


White background – first version on previous post



Graphics – Spring sprouts

My attempt to create a spring-themed pattern inspired by the Spring 2018 Top 12 Color Palette proposed by the Pantone Color Institute.  I applied those 12 colors in drawing the lines of sprouts.  My idea is to create a geometric-meets-organic vibe.


Illustration – Night Owls

Come up with 2 options of  an illustration of a pair of owls at night, with and without wordings.  Not decided which one is better to be uploaded at my online shop. Probably the version with words is more suitable for tees and hoodies especially for kid’s wear, while the no-words version is perfect for art prints, home decors and mobile devices.



Illustration – Terrace Fields


This illustration is inspired by the spectacular landscapes formed from terrace farming around the world.  The agricultural form has been around over a thousand years and could be found today in many countries like China, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, …. etc. This shows the incredible human wisdom in dealing with the nature’s challenge.

‘Terrace farming is a type of farming that consists of different “steps” or terraces. This method of farming uses “steps” that are built into the side of a mountain or hill. On each level, various crops are planted. When it rains, instead of washing away all of the nutrients in the soil, the nutrients are carried down to the next level. Additionally, these steps prevent a free flowing avalanche of water that would take plants with it and destroy all of the crops on the hillside. This system also allowed them to build aqueducts, which carried water to each level.’  (Source: Wikipedia)
