Half of My Face on Wood
Charcoal on wood
60 x 25 cm

This is my first attempt working with charcoal, and wow I have to draw a face! To make matters even better, I have to draw my own face! I was so excited to start on the piece! If the final artwork turns out ugly, I will have to choose between blaming my genetics or my art skills! Fortunately, I think I am quite happy with the outcome. Charcoal is such a straightforward medium - it can either make your artwork shine or look like a chunk of absolute darkness.

I Love Hawker Food
Watercolour
29.7 x 42 cm

I created this artwork for a competition in 2020 but did not win. However, my mother really liked this piece and encouraged me to submit it for AEPE 2021. I thought that this piece is pretty cute as I tried to make the food in the drawing as appetising as possible. In hindsight, I regret adding too much brown to the background, which might have made it look like a setting for a horror film now.
