Out of the recent ones you post, I love this one most. Hey, what's your profession? Are you an artist or something?!

I do like your work. Seriously.

Thanks for your kind words. It's appreciated.

I have been drawing for almost forty years. It's a passion.

These sketches are just that, sketches, some being more elaborate than others. Many are just ink sketches, usually of forests, glades, and more. I haven't posted any major work yet mainly because I haven't done any in twelve years and also that I do not own a scanner that is large enough.

My profession? I'm just a typical Chinese businessman.

Thanks again.

Yes, for some pieces, I do aim for a certain stylised look and feel. For others, I aim for a darker and more realistic feel.

That peice is one of your best, Shyue Chou. That is exactly the same reason that I draw at the size I do. I have a small printer/scanner that will only do 8.5" x 11" paper. That and they store well in my filing cabinet well.
I need to find time to draw more. I have totally given up for like a year now. My wife Chris got me an artist's easel for painting and it is still in the box. I should be in the backyard painting the purple loostife and water lillies.

And hey! Brat! What's wrong with being over 40? There are some very cool people out there who are over 40!

Grr... Benita, I will sic Kuoby on you!

Tim, thanks! When are you going to do your renditions of Iron Man and Batman?

You should start again, I haven't seen anything from you in a while.

Little Benita aka Brat, is not even 21, Tim.

40 years?!

For me, I just take pictures on things that I draw. I don't even have a scanner!
