I love drawing animals and wildlife. I still remember my first art teacher when I was still small, he asked me to chase a hen and a rabbit and draw them as quick as I could. In the beginning I thought it’s a impossible task because a hen and a rabbit were keep running away from me and they never stood still. Even though my sketches were just messy squiggles, I loved this game a lot. Then gradually I started learning how animals moves, how their muscle and joints worked. Later on, when I studied at an art college, I first time knew this game is called croquis, the way artists learns how to draw living things.
I often commissioned to draw animals, because with my fast ink strokes, I can give the effect which the drawings look live and moving. This technique comes from a hen and a rabbit when I chased in my childhood.
