Meet Paul Smith (September 21, 1921 – June 25, 2007), an American artist born with severe spastic cerebral palsy. Even though with limited body mobility, he was able to create masterpieces using just a typewriter. He’s certainly an inspiration for artist because he exemplifies how nothing of what we are are mistakes, but a gift. We all have our own talents and that if we truly like something, there’s no stopping us. Creativity knows no limits.
Firstly, sorry I have been bad at posting blogs since January.
Secondly, shout out to Kylie from Hong Kong who said that she read and likes my blog.
Thirdly, are you an artist? Do you get bored when you are on a long train commute to work/school/etc? This person does. This illustrator by the Twitter name of @October Jones amuses himself (or herself) while on the train by drawing caricatures heads on top of passengers. The results are hilarious!

Most of you don’t know this, but I have started collecting postcard about a year now through Postcrossing.com. So far I have about 275 postcards from 52 countries. While my main interest is collecting tourist postcards, I learned about a special kind of postcards that I didn’t know they existed and I fell instantly in love with them as I love doodles. They are called “lali cards” or “lali riddle cards”. They are so much fun and they are adorable! Most of them contain riddles such as “which one of these fish does not like water?” or “Where is the message in a bottle?” You can see my collection here http://www.flickr.com/photos/104584313@N05/sets/72157639672091493/. If you have some lali cards in exchange for Toronto or Canada postcards, please let me know by commenting below or through Contact Me section.
Here are some of my favourites:

Sorry there hasn’t been many posts lately. My internet service provider doesn’t have a very good tech support service. But promise this post is awesome enough to make up for that.
Found this amazing artist from New Jersey (living in Massachusetts), Jen Skelley from Illustration Friday blog. I love her unique, cute and quirky illustrations. It’s hard not to get enough of it. Take a look at some of her artwork to see for yourself. And remember to check out more of her work on her website JenSkelley.com. You can also buy her stuff from her Etsy store.
