I’ve moved into my dormitory – no male visitors allowed. When they do come in they have to wear little jackets saying ‘visitor’, har har! At the moment I have a Korean and Taiwanese roommate, and also blessed a.c.
A quick sketch of my room:
I’m writing from the dorm common room, where I can use internet so long as I duel with mosquitos every so often. It’s a somewhat unappealing space filled by three long rows of plastic chairs all facing a TV screen showing images of people wading through mud streams. The typhoon hasn’t really hit us over here, though.
Some sketchbook things: delicious hotpot meal, which you may be able to tell has been expertly given bits of not at all slapdash colour using photoshop.
Last weekend I went past wonderful mangrove forests on the train to Danshui, where river meets sea. I did some sketching of the island Bali (a different Bali) despite the overpowering heat
There were massive trees all around, this sketch doesn’t do justice to their magnificence. As I walked by later I realised someone was sleeping on the lowest lefthand branch, taking up maybe a mere third of its length.
