Escape to Hong Kong (with INKS)

The first 2 months of 2017 kept me extremely busy. There were the series of vessels to paint for a shipping company, a private wall mural, 2 lion statues and of course the next book I'm working on.  I needed a breather, and also had to catch up with some old friends. And so I packed my bags, painting equipment & an empty stomach and left for Hong Kong. Here are some of the highlights:

After the plane landed, and after checking in, I headed straight to this Noodle House 
called Cart Noodle Expert on 104 Jervois Street. 

Last year (2016), I remembered sketching a butcher right here on Gage Street down by Central. Now, it's gone. 
Just a sketch left to remind me of the place. And this is one of the reason why I sketch.

Hello Toy Story Land! 

OK, so I fell for it. Right after the new Iron Man ride (that was made from the former Star Tours ride), 
I had to eat this at the restaurant. 

This curry fishball stall just outside Sham Shui Po MTR station seems to be very popular! 

Many buildings like this is up for redevelopment in the Sham Shui Po area.
So that makes it a fantastic location to sketch.

Met some of the wonderful people from USK Hong Kong. 
I had plenty of great tips of where to paint from them.

Sketchbook Exchange with Alison Hui. She spent several months in South America doodling.
If you are interested in my book, Ciao Firenze!, it can be found here: 

I love the food so much, I had it for lunch and dinner... on the same day!!
