2015 comes to a close

  Christmas came and went. The days seem to have breezed by. Joni and I made tiles with little Christmas trees on them for the holiday. I drew the trees in pencil, then gave one of the tiles to Joni to fill in, whilst I filled my own one. In case you haven't see them, here they are:
Here's mine.

And here's Joni's one.

Small update with what I've been up to lately:
I asked my mum what she wanted for Christmas and she said "a money tree".
So I made one for her. The Singapore $50 and $1000 bills are blue and purple coloured respectively. I asked my mum to ask the tree for money; and then to open the little flap on the tree's trunk. Behind the flap was a $50 bill for her to keep. She thought it to be a lovely present. ^-^

A new piece for "Blossoms".
Skull with a dragonfly and a chrysanthemum.

   I taught "Yuma" last week. It's such a pretty pattern, and it comes out differently every time you draw it. Here's Mihika focusing on her tile:

And this week, I did a hummingbird tile with her because the 5th of January is World Bird Day.
The pink is hers; the green is mine. She's just twelve years old, might I add. Such lovely work.

Lastly, a custom drawing for a friend.
He's Christian and I asked what his favourite quote from the bible was, and what colours he like. I then made this drawing accordingly.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

  I also started on a new project which I've currently titled "3.142". (Said as "three point one four two", after pi- π .)
Here's one finished one.

And here are five of its other friends that are currently in the works.

I've also taken the time to get back to drawing on actual tiles.
Some Zendalas I taught this week... And a tile for "It's a String Thing". I'll be posting the finished pieces right after I've completed them.

  I'm so glad you've stuck around and watched the progress of Everything Is Art. This year, we had our first exhibition (Building Bridges). Joni and I made such progress with our artistic abilities. We joined new art groups, started on new projects, and are planning on our next exhibition already... It has truly been a wonderful year for us.

  In 2016, I'll like to focus on doing more commercial works- like selling prints, iPhone covers, and T-shirts... I'll like to make more videos. I'll like to have my second exhibition; and maybe a third one, too. I'll like to teach the Zentangle method to more students. I'll like to make more friends (artists and non-artists alike). I'll like to do even more projects. I've said this plenty of times, but it's worth saying again: I'm so blessed to be doing what I love every day. I hope 2016 will be our best year yet.

Here's a wefie of Joni and I, with me holding a drawing we made together that says "Happy New Year". I'll be posting a clear, close up photo of it along with a time-lapse video of me doing the type. Until then... Keep tangling~
