Its a good day to be Canadian

Getting pretty excited here for Canada's current standing in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Three golds in one day, 13 in total. Very impressive, Canada!
The cherry on top would be the gold in men's hockey, if we beat USA tomorrow. It would mean 14 golds, and a new record for most golds in the history of all the Winter Olympics.
Canada's sure glowing with red hearts all over. I wanted to buy these sweaters back in january... dunno why i didn't, because they're pretty much sold out all over.
Oh well, I guess drawing the outfits I want comes pretty close.

"Everybody has a waterbuffalo, yours is fast but mine is slow..."

Bought the children's book "Duchess of Whimsy" by Randal De Seve and Illustrated by Peter de Seve. BRILLIANT illustrations, done in lovely watercolour (and maybe some pencil crayon, I'm not sure). But its a wonderful book, great story, with illustrations to die for---for a watercolourist like myself.

I did this illustration of a little filipino boy riding a buffalo (inspired by the De Seve style), and I think I wanna create a children's book based on this illustration.
