Do you know this thing when you buy a new fancy sketchbook and you only want to fill it with really good things so you're scared to spoil it by drawing horrible failed doodles on the first page so it's empty forever?
no? just me? okay

Here’s an illustration I did after listening to one of my favorite songs: “Half a Person” by The Smiths. On her headphones are the lyrics, “Sixteen, clumsy, and shy… that’s the story of my life.” Although Morrissey is referring to himself in the lyrics, I think many of us could relate.
Give the song a listen! 🎶
To see all the sketches I’ve been working on, you can check out the Flickr album “My Sketching Journey”, or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.
This evening we celebrated Bay’s recital performance by going out to eat at his favorite restaurant, Komé Sushi Kitchen. The recital was actually last week, but our schedule was so full that we had to postpone the dinner until tonight. Anyways, we feasted on many of the dishes we always get, such as kaki-furai (fried oysters), ebi-furai (fried shrimp), camembert tempura, a few of the kids’ favorite sushi rolls, and a nice variety of nigiri.
But we did try a few new things. Yesterday, the Komé chefs broke down a whole tuna from Japan, so we enjoyed some of the sashimi from that, and it was the first time for me to try the duck breast and foie gras sushi. It was amazing! We also got the kani cream korokke (creamy crab croquette) which was delicious.
I hope you had a nice Sunday!
こんばんは。How’s it going? Today Bay and I went to IKEA to do a little shopping, mainly for a light for his room, but also I wanted to find a clipboard for drawing. We found a nice light for him, but I didn’t find a clipboard, however, I did find this wooden hand which, although labeled as decorative, is realistic enough and poseable so I should be able to use it to practice drawing. Comparing it to my own hand, I can see that the wooden one lacks some the main curvature where the palm meets the bottom of the fingers but I think it’s close enough. At any rate, it’s pretty cool to look at!
Later on, I did a quick sketch and refilled the ink in a couple of my fountain pens. It’s fun to be semi-creative, even if they are just quick sketches and scribbles. I really enjoy it, and it’s so liberating for me not to always be pursuing perfection.
I hope you had a wonderful Saturday!
