Jacob Ballas Garden


Ollie is the one on the right. She liked playing in the sand and sliding down from the treehouse, but only using the lower slide. There is a new section added to the garden. There, she likes jumping on the trampoline and then balancing on the logs. We got there around 10am plus and it was already getting hot. Good thing there was enough tree cover. The Food for Tots cafe there was rather too pricey. So we ate OK Peranakan food at Ivims instead. Poster colour + conte.

Clementi mall

Drew this while having breakfast at the newly revamped Toastbox at Clementi Mall. I looked out the large window while munching on a ham and cheese toast which I occasionally dipped into a bowl of soft-boiled eggs. I'd also sip my cup of coffee+evaporated milk+no sugar. Outside, people were busy walking past. A train would stop at the station every few minutes. Behind me, two men were chatting about their kids and work. I was glad no one was looking over my shoulders while I drew. FW acrylic ink marker + watercolours.

Parker 51 stub, dip pen, watercolors, posca white marker

Playing with posca markers and acrylic ink


Since I only had 4 markers, I was forced to use a limited colour palette. The brown and skin tone orange were warm colours so I balanced it with a blue. White marker for highlights and FW acrylic ink in a home-made marker for the black. Later on, I got the FW marker to put the FW acrylic ink in and that flowed a lot better.

A new Ollie comic. In this one, I use a kind of "jedi mind trick" that my brothers and I would use on each other when we were younger. Try it out and see if it works. It only works on Ollie, now and then - usually when she is just a little annoyed. For a complete collection of Ollie comics before Aug 2017, check out the book here: http://www.drewscape.net/theolliecomics.html

P.S. The Chinese brush pen in this video is this cheap one HERE. The cap looks different in the video because I made a new cap for it.

Black and white


These couple weeks, I've been carrying around a dip pen, black ink in a small squeeze bottle and a portable Chinese brush. So I'm liking just black and white for now. And I love the satisfying feel of drawing with a dip pen. Not as convenient as a fountain pen, but there is something really enjoyable about using a dip nib.




The weird caped person pic was done with a Twsbi fountain pen with blacks added in using the Chinese brush.
