Hong Kong Sketch Book Diaries. The Black Ink Series.

Written by . Filed under Drawings, Blogging. Tagged , , . Comments Off on Hong Kong Sketch Book Diaries. The Black Ink Series..







Here’s a quick and small black ink series of Hong Kong. We’ve been here for almost 2 months now but it really feels like we just arrived last week. There’s just so much to do here! Hong Kong is seriously an incredible city. So vibrant and rich with culture, arts tech and more. You can be in central surrounded by the hippest cafes and restaurants and then you can be literally in another world within 15-20 min. by boat to a quiet fishing village (more on that in another post). We feel like we’ve only seen 1% of HK during this entire time here.

We’re here until the 27th and then we’ll be back in Vancouver to jump back into the thick of it. If you need immediate assistance with any current projects with us, please contact our incredible Studio Manager, Aiken. She’ll sort you out. Thanks for reading our blog.

Illustrators do warm-ups by sketching like athletes doing warm-ups by stretching.

Much like athletes, illustrators need to do warm-ups that act like training exercises by doing quick illustrations for fun. It helps loosen fingers, the wrist and more importantly, the mind.

Did this quick sketch before tackling a commercial project in Hong Kong. This piece is based on a photo I took with my Google Pixel while in Causeway Bay. I ABSOLUTELY love drawing with this pental brush pen. Nothing beats the feeling of an old school brush pen hitting on Moleskine paper.

Peeking over peaks on Hong Kong island.

Sometimes I pinch myself because I still can’t believe this is my temporary office view in Hong Kong. Caught today’s magic hour (with my trusty old Nikon D600 and Nikkor 50mm F1.8) as I was catching up with emails. Been working and living here since Jan 7th and it seems like there’s no end to exploring new things on this tiny Hong Kong island. We’ll be meeting the good folks at Ogilvy & Mather this Thursday.

There’s almost always something beautiful to see if you look close enough. Just look around.

Title: ‘Road Chill’
Size: 2987px X 3539px @ 72dpi
Medium: Digital. Google Pixel 2 XL + Procreate.

We’ve been back in Hong Kong for 3 weeks now and we still haven’t had time to do a proper photo walk but no matter where we go, or how mundane it might be, there’s almost always something beautiful to see if you look close enough. This photo was taken on the whim with our Google Pixel 2 XL with no filter. Love the colours and how the light is passing through the light plastic. As it drifted down on to the street, it made us think of that scene in the movie, American Beauty (Whoa. That movie was 20 years ago!) and this old French film ‘The Red Balloon‘ (shot in 1956! One of our absolute favourite) We call this piece ‘Road Chill‘.

And no, this is not a sponsored post from Google. No sir.
