Illustration Friday: theory


Thank you to everyone that watched the "Home" video and to all the wonderful people that left such nice comments, it means so much to me and David Tobocman! I really love the song a lot because it is so hearfelt. If you missed it you can catch it at the bottom of this post. Today for Illustration Friday's "theory" my submission reflects that according to the theory of Chinese Feng Shui, there are 8 types of auspicious houses that can give people solid financial status, harmonious family relationships, good public relationships and happy marriage status. Tea house and cup made from clay and glazes.

A star indeed, a brilliant star. I came here this evening eager to find out what you would show for this topic. Perfect. As for Feng Shui, I bought a little book called "Wrong Shui".

Wonderful post, love the tea gear and the video is beautiful! I'm gathering that it is your artwork? What a cool experience it must be to create an animation! And with such lovely artwork.

The teapot reminds me of the pen holders (which I still use at work btw). Love it!
