On My Radar: Donald “Drawbertson”

This image popped up on my newsfeed the other day and I was immediately smitten. How whimsical, fun and colorful! “Who made that!?” I wondered. Seeing drawings like these always brings me back to the days when I myself was doing fashion illustrations in school. My favorite medium was always gouache and watercolor although I always had difficulty controlling the medium. Donald Robertson, aka Donald “Drawbertson” seems to have…

Sunday streetart

Every Sunday, I go for a morning run. During the week I’m not as consistent as I would like to be, so on Sundays when I run, I try to make up for it by going long and far. The past few Sundays I’ve been running across bridges into different parts of Brooklyn. These runs take up to 3 hours or so! On the bridge and at the…

An honest and fair appraisal from The Bumbys

One of the many highlights of my weekend: Getting “an honest and fair appraisal” from the Bumbys. And by The Bumbys I mean Gill and Jill Bumby, the masked figures you see in these photos.

The Multicultural Gala- an Evening of Many Cultures, at the Met

It’s not often that you get to start off the week celebrating cultures with one of your favorite people in the city, at the legendary Metropolitan museum of art. On a beautiful Monday (September 23, 2013 (yes this is a late post)) I had the experience of accompanying my mentor to the Multicultural Gala at the Met. It was described as a ‘black tie affair’…

Streetart in Williamsburg (photos)

I was in Brooklyn today- for the first time in a long time- to attend the Northside Festival. You may have noticed I have a slight obsession with street art so in between sessions I found myself walking around the area snapping a few photos. I liked what I saw! Take a peek:

Asia Represent at Asia Society

I’m not in the Upper East side too often but it seems that whenever I make the trip, it is always a good time. The last time I visited The Asia Society was to see Maureen Chiquet the CEO of Chanel speak and before that, I learned more about the design scene in Hong Kong and even at my first visit to the Asia Society,…

Front Row at MOCA NYC

Just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Canal Street in Chinatown you’ll find a quieter street with a hidden gem: MOCA NYC. Back in January, I visited MOCA for the first time to attend a panel, “Female, Fashionable, New York“, to hear perspectives of three Asian American women in the Fashion industry. This is when I found out that MOCA would have…

Memorable moments at the Met

After dinner one night over a year ago (sometime in January), my friend and I walked until we found ourselves in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art where we saw an elegantly dressed crowd exiting the museum. At the time, I had no idea anything happened afterhours at the Met (I guess I imagined something like those “Night at the museum” movies) so I…

Stay hungry, Stay Curious

Believe it or not, there was a reason why I made my sister walk a lot while she was visiting. Besides the fact that I am an inveterate walker, I had more time during break and it’s just calming to walk in the company of a loved one, I simply wanted my sister to be more curious. If you haven’t noticed already in my instagram…

Snow day at Sotheby’s

February may have been Fashion month, but March is Art month. Even though it is indeed about time for Spring, yesterday it was snowing/raining. Either way, my plans included heading to Sotheby’s for a Chinese art tour.
