e with red dress side, originally uploaded by e.briel.

Last year painted a pair of silk hangings - a commission for a Thai restaurant in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I did several versions of Rama, painted with cyanotype liquid onto handwoven silk organza.

They resemble shadow-puppets, a traditional artform prthroughout SE Asia.

Ever the perfectionist, I was unsatisfied with the first Rama so then had it made into a dress instead.

September's Sketchcrawl

with members of Hong Kong's CG Forum last week. Many of them are professional illustrators; all of them are much more adept at computer-aided drawing than I am. Check out Andrew Lee's portfolio.

Some photos:

Harry, one of the organizers

And a couple of my sketches:

I didn't use pencil that day, so it took awhile to warm up
