Tuesday, July 28, 2009 = All About JooJoo!

Hi everyone!
Today I'm very excited to announce my new web address:
Sweet 'n Short!!!
I guess now it's much easier for everyone to visit my blog! :)

JooJoo means a birdie in Persian ,
especially it's used for little yellow chicks.
2 years ago I had gone to the beach with Suma and
he found this heart shaped stone there. He asked
me to paint myself on it, and I painted us instead!

I've used gouache and then sealed it after that.
I used this illustration for my wedding invitations too!
I made all of our wedding invitations myself!
Including favors and my cake topper!
I will blog about them soon!
Thank you for visiting,
It's always a pleasure having you here!

Illustration Friday: Hollow . My hollow heart grew whole

For this week of Illustration Friday I was inspired
by beautiful lyrics from a song called Ivory Rose:
The love I found in your sapphire eyes is nestled into my soul
In the kisses of your ruby mouth my hollow heart grew whole
And came to know the touch that sows desire, a flower of fire
that grows and burns my pride to cinders,
how I love you, Ivory rose.
