Hi everyone! I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but I’m in Taiwan + Japan again and I’m re-opening up my photoblog from last year if you care to follow along in my food + sightseeing experiences! Thanks for looking :-)
Anonymous asked: When did you first get interested in art?
I don’t completely know for sure, but I think it was when I first saw my cousin drawing Sailor Moon when I was a kid!! Those were some good times.
Anonymous asked: What was it like to take a figure drawing class?
It’s fun???? Hahahaha our models were all very well-built people with great bodies and were really nice too. It made drawing them less stressful/uncomfortable for some people in the studio!
Anonymous asked: Did figure drawing come easily for you or did you struggle sometimes? 0:
I didn’t really think about whether or not it came easily for me or not, but it took some getting used to in the beginning! I’m not sure how figure drawing is taught for everyone but when we had to measure proportions I found that difficult, but got it down right according to my instructor? I definitely learned a lot by taking life drawing, because there are some slight things your brain observes when you draw as opposed to drawing something from your head. It’s kind of cool!
Anonymous asked: Do you know Chinese and Japanese? :D
LBR here I’m not good at either language to call myself proficient but my background is Mandarin Chinese, so I can speak it and read a good portion of it, but not enough to read a newspaper. As for Japanese, I took a solid four semesters of it, but I’m still unsure of grammar structures and I can type/read more than I can speak (largely reliant on kanji dictionary, translators, various other sources though) /_\ wish I could take more classes…
Here is my embarrassing language background exposed to everyone who ever wondered but hey I speak perfect English so there’s that

Thank you so much!!!! I’m not very good with anatomy, but it’s still a learning process! I’ve taken one life drawing studio in my entire life, and I wish I could take more! They are so fun…..
