I haven't studied calligraphy and don't really understand that much about it, but I still try to practice it every now and then to improve my brush control. So today filled the sheet with character 'new' (新) written in different styles (above a part that fit to the scanner).

I have heard that the Chinese brand Snow is the world's best selling beer. It is cheap and tasteless and I don't know who actually drinks it. Not Beijingers I think, they prefer the local brand Yanjing, which is the world's best beer (in my opinion... )

My moving boxes finally arrived on Monday. They were on their way from Beijing to London for almost 4 months. I have spent a couple of days now opening them and exploring and arranging the contents. It feels like Christmas though I am quite shocked about the amount of possessions I have. I thought I threw away a lot but now I notice I still have too much. The only things I have really missed have been my art supplies, kitchenware and some pieces of furniture...

Imitation... the sincerest form of flattery?

After Rain
After Rain / 雨后, 2011, 100 x 53 cm, ink and watercolor on xuan paper
Yesterday I bumped into an almost exact copy of my painting (above) in an internet art portfolio site. It was a strange feeling...

9 Month Stretch

Back in London, nice to be drawing again! (And still don't know how to get rid of that stupid border around images, I think I set it as transparent already, why is it still there...??)
