The year of 2017 treated me quite okay. Apart from going through some minor health hiccups, my career has picked up and is going smoothly. My artwork was selected and featured in an online magazine, Film & TV Mag. This help built my confidence and elevated me to continue to create and draw new artwork. During the year I also learned a new form of digital painting, by way of using an iPad and a digital pen. Previously it was a tedious process as I had to use a mouse and click, click, click, and click.
In addition, I created a new princess ballet series. I love ballet, but unfortunately, I am not dancing material. Each time I see the ballerina’s slender arm and figure, and wearing a tutu, I will imagine of Disney princesses dressing up with tutu dress, then elegantly posing and dancing. Thus, my Princess Ballet Series was created.
I also visited New York and watched two great musicals, “Miss Saigon” and “Anastasia”. This is my second time watching Miss Saigon, and I have to say I prefer this new re-staged Kim, who was played by Eva Noblezada. As for Anastasia, I really liked Christy Altomare’s performance. Of the many musicals that I have watched, and for the first time, I experience natural and with no exaggeration acting. The performance from these two actresses are superb, they made me feel their pain, their anger, their joy, through their natural acting and powerful voice, which made me very emotional through-out the show.
In 2018; I wish for family, my love ones, and myself a healthy year; Travel to new places and experience new things; Create new and good artworks; I wish dreams can come true!
Happy New Year!
2017年對我來說是個👌年份，除了經歷一些健康小風波之外，在事業上可算是進入了穩定期。作品第一次被電影雜誌選中刊登，覺得自信被提升到另一個層次，畫起新作品也覺得得心應手。後來還學了digital painting，不用像以前用老鼠慢慢click,click, click...
還到了紐約看了兩部很棒的音樂劇- Anastasia 與 Miss Saigon，雖然是第二次看西貢小姐，可是比較喜歡這次restaged的Kim， 至於Anastasia，超喜歡Christy Altomare 的演繹，這兩位女演員是我看那麼多部音樂劇，第一次令我感受到有「演技」的演員，沒有浮誇的演技，只有自然，真情流露的演技與聲音，竟然感動到我哭了⋯⋯
