Society of Illustrator 52
I applied some of my works for the illustrators 52 competition held by Society of illustrators and my piece 'Kitchen 1'has been selected in uncommissioned category. I didn't expect at all, it is such a blessing, truly my honor. I really appreciate all of you who always support my work :)
The 'Kitchen 1' will hang in the Society of Illustrators' gallery in New york. The exhibition will be January 6th through 23th 2010, the opening reception will be January 8th Friday 6pm.
The below is the explanation of this piece which will be included in the book illustrators 52.
"Honesty is better than cleverness"
This is a page from my sketchbook. It is also the first drawing that I have been satisfied with after doing sketchbooking. Since drawing has soaked into my life, I carry my sketchbook everywhere I go and draw life as it is. When I did this piece, I woke up in the morning, walked straight to the kitchen, grabbed a pen and drew. I didn't try to make it look great by adding or deleting pen strokes. I just drew what I saw as it was. By dong so, it gave me so much freedom and joy. Most of all, the result of this piece is living. Yes, honesty is better than cleverness.
Thank you Lord, the little cross..*
