a present -Yelen Bryksenkova

Collecting illustration from children's book to postcard print are part of my  hobby. So, this would be my favourtie present for myself.
Yelena Bryksenkova 's illustrations attracts me for certain reason.
She was  born in St. Petersburg, Russia and raised in Northeast Ohio. Educated at the Maryland Institude College of Art and the academy of applied and  decorative arts in Prague, Czech Republic.
She uses pen, water colour, acrylic
and gouache to define her love of  home and comfort from everyday objects.
Much more than that, she  likes to work on magical, mysterious and  melancholy themes.
 They are charming and i like her detailed pattern work, special rendered  spaces and posture for her characters. It shows the femininity towards  our life.
For more information  of her work, here provide the link to her page.

Wish to say thank you to my dearest mum's upbringing and caring.
I print out those beautiful scenario during our last visit of the floral market together with a drawing from my latest nominated dressed bear: Pandy May, at the Glaserner Teddybar contest 2012.
To my surprise, the certificate i received has my bear's image on it and i love the prize, they are mohair from Lou's Bear.

Fukushima - 2 years

This is my recent drawing of a panda mother and her child.
It starts from the news i read from our local news report. It has been 2 years since the earthquake, tsunami attack Japan.We can see that ceremonies held in different nations, reports on reconstruction and rebuilding progress keep on going by the contribution of all level of efforts.
One of the news reported that about a family at Fukushima. There is a nurse (池田美千子)working at a care center for elderly, she exposed to radiation and discovered her pregnancy after this incident. After 2 years, this baby boy is healthy.
I was touch by this and really wish the next generation stay positive to the future. Enjoy the family time.
In March, April and May, the beauty of cherry blossom starts from south to north. the splashes of white and pink covers the grassland, mountains and river. One of my friend told me that the most amazing moment is the flower pedal falls, called (櫻花雪) sakura snow... sorry i am not so sure it's the right translation. Please correct me if it's not.
The patching floral paper on this drawing, is from a very precious Japanese craft paper collection. They are all embossed with different seasonal theme. I love them and very hard for me to have a cut on it.

Finally, i consider to turn this drawing and prints add on into a card. It is still blank inside. I really wish one day this card can be sent to the family mentioned above...

P.S. If anyone wish to download this image, please send me an email for permission before use.
