I make sketches whenever I find something inspiring and touching. Those moments filter through my mind and create a small world in my sketch book.

Hungry, Angry

I think our stomach and feeling are tightly connected. When we are full, we feel good and happy. but when our stomach is empty, we feel terrible! Children don't understand this relationship inside them. So most of the time, trouble will start when they are hungry!
In Maya's case, she refuses to eat, when she is so hungry and upset... It is so hard to make her eat the first one bite! After fighting a bit, she finally starts to eat. When her stomach smiles, Maya smiles, too!

Dear Santa

Maya is counting down for Christmas to come for the first time in her life. This year, she fully understands what Christmas is about. Well, just as the day Santa Clause will bring a present...
When I was a child, my mother told me to put a letter to Santa on the window. I remember I used to put a letter on the window and wait for Christmas. So Maya is doing the same now.
Next several years are so precious time for my family. We can purely enjoy Christmas. Someday when she ask me "Is there really a Santa Clause?", I want to read her my favorite essay about Christmas.

Maya has started to take ballet lessons since September. She loves it! Usually she gets really shy with new people and place, but she didn't have any problem to jump into the class from the beginning. Even though she understand little English, she is following what the teacher says somehow! She learned how to bow in Ballet. She is so proud to show me what she learned in the class. She put a wrong leg in front, though....
