A New Year

January 25th, 2004

I’m back from Tahiti. Actually, I’ve been back for quite awhile now, and have just recently caught up with work and life. You can take a look at my Tahiti trip photos, some of them are online in the photos section.

The Lunar New Year happened just recently. It’s interesting, I really feel that this year is going to be different. I can’t really put my finger on it yet, but it feels like various things are aligning themselves, where last year, things just seemed to be a little ahead of or behind themselves.

I bought a new sketchbook, this one’s bigger, and the paper’s smoother. I’ve realized that drawing young kids is really a challenge, there’s some quality about them that makes them appear their age, and if you’re even a little off, they end up looking older, somehow. You’ll see what I mean when I post my next sketch in about a week.

    Nice to see you finally updated! I was beginning to think, “If Charles’s blog says he is in Tahiti…then WHO is talking to me RIGHT NOW in real life?”
