I haven't had a lot of opportunity to draw from life these days as I've working on my Christmas Project a lot but a few days ago, I had a chance to go to Monaco and indulge its atmosphere and beauty. It is such an incredible place filled with beautiful people, luxurious houses, yachts, museums and gardens. Being there - feels like another world. I wanted to capture that feeling in my sketchbook and this is what I came up with.

I am now having an incredible time in Nice, France. This place is absolutely divine and unique filled with inspiration, elegance and history. What a beautiful place to live in and create marvellous illustrations... Being here is very inspiring.
This week I've been relaxing a lot, working on my Christmas project and drawing a little bit in my sketchbook. Next week, I really want to visit Chagall's exhibition and go to Matisses' villa. I am going to take my sketchbook with me everywhere I go and then scan various sketches and illustrations to show you.

We all know Tiffany & Co. by its fashionably romantic blue box which carries an unforgettable moment that will last a lifetime... Every time I think of Tiffany & Co., I think of a celebration of love, beauty, elegance and charm... I decided to create an illustration that will kind of capture its essence and energy.

I feel the wind of inspiration coming as time approaches to my trip to France. I am so excited about it.. I am going to take my sketchbook, watercolour paper, coloured pencils, markers, gold, gouache and watercolour with me! I'm also going to take my favourite books that inspire me so much as I'm planning on drawing in my Moleskine so much and taking it with me no matter where I go.. this way I'll be able to illustrate vivid moments and places that talk to my soul. I just created this illustration that shows French Delights as a starter. Can't wait to share with you my upcoming French Illustrations!! :)

There is only one kind of love, it is pure, divine and holy. It is the highest form of feelings that we can ever experience. Love is the most important feeling that makes our souls alive. Love has the highest vibrational frequency and more we are tuned in to it, more we feel it. There is something so strong that has been happening in my heart this past year, I feel that I am capable of feeling this love on a higher level than ever before.
When you find that special person with whom you want to spend your life with, you can exerience an indescribable feeling of love. This illustration reflects this love, they found each other and are so in love. Life is filled with flowers and their life journey is a miracle.
