Today I read several children books at the library. Loved all of them! Here are 2:
|Joo reads Sam, Bangs & Moonshine by Evaline Ness|
|Joo reads The Snow Maze by Jan Mark|
A boy finds a strange-looking key which unlocks a gate that makes him see what others can't. Because they can't see what he sees, everyone laughs at him, except one friend. I made this drawing based on the book cover, and added myself standing next to the boy. Yep, I really got into the story. :--) A wonderful book. Nice illustrations too.

when it is SUN- day, we do the Calico Dance!
It is basically playing a song that has 3 chords and then you dance to it with 3 simple movements. And repeat. It helps if you wear 3 colours.

We have the parrot giving us the weather report today.

Today I walked out and saw the sky.
Here is another "thing" in tight spaces. The wolf doesn't mind so long he is wearing his favourite clothes. He reads a book called Wolf by Gillian Cross. It won some prize, that was why he wanted to read it. (I have read it and found it boring. But the cover painting was beautiful. I checked out the guy who painted it, and sadly could not find any more of his art. Makes me think there must be so many great painters out there making paintings no one sees. The wolf, however, doesn't give a damn about paintings or unknown painters...)
(and we continue to do that all through our life...)
I am not imagining it, but did you know that the vulture can blush? Yep. Their skin becomes pink when excited or angry.
I think that is a lovely pink colour on that vulture. This same book describes them as "ugly". I think this is not the best book for a child.
Speaking of colours, I was eating a piece of crushed raspberry Dragon fruit while looking at butterflies and vultures and - I stained my clothes.
and then of course many other words came to mind when Stain happened....
And, because I was thinking about J.D. and his incredible endurance for my messy eating habits, I made another comic so that those stains won't happen in vain!!! HAHA!
To end the day, here is the REAL calico cat sleeping outside the tennis court. Everything is good.

So it had been trapped inside her socks all this while.
How did it get inside her boots?
How did it feel being squished against the clammy foot for 20 miles?
Does it have something to do with that giant Naples Yellow calico cat?
WE HAVE 20 SECONDS TO WORK THIS OUT.
she drove for 20 miles thinking she was imagining something that was REALLY there.

A video I made for a song by my friend Kelvin Tan. You can listen and buy the track here https://open.spotify.com/track/0bJyDvqdeC5Zs2JFEOeVbc
I used some simple animations and monoprints to create this video.
