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.

All in One

Maya had been in a bad temper forever the other day. Any words I said didn't help. So I said, "Mama doesn't like your angry face!". Then, Maya took my words so seriously and started to cry, of course... She said, "Mama doesn't like Maya..."
So I explained, " I love Maya. Angry Maya, Crying Maya and smiling Maya... I love everything, because all are Maya!" That made her so happy!

I'm so busy with my part-time job and a design freelance job these days. I'm very happy and appreciate that I got this design job, but at the same time, I'm so preoccupied with my work that I'm loosing the sensibility to feel small things around me. It is contradiction. Because I need the sensibility in order to create good design.
Being a full-time mother is the greatest job in the world. Mother's job is to come down to child's point of view and to see and feel small happiness around us, as same as children do. I really believe that our society needs the sensibility, instead of being preoccupied with thoughts and anxiety inside our heads.

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's been very nice weather for a month or so in San Francisco. So I all forgot that it is still winter. Today rain came back. Real spring is not here yet.
I hope you all warm up with LOVE around you on Valentine's Day!

We went to have lunch with one of my friends from my animator days. She has worked for many famous animation studios for many years. She is an established CG animator by now.
When Maya met her for the first time, she immediately fell in love with her! I guess my friend looked different from any mothers she has ever seen. My friend was well dressed up on her high-heel with pretty make-up, so she must have Princess Aura around her! I realized I have full of Mother Aura around me....
