Old Man & Pink Cat 老人與紅貓

This illustration was started many years ago but I'd never finished it until now. The original idea didn't put the pink cat there but a short dark skin brother under the pale man. It was inspired by an Chinese tale ‘Qi Ye Ba Ye'. Well, it ended up with this version.

Caged Bird by Comma Sprout 籠中鳥-李子話畫

This drawing was done few years ago. Somehow, I still feel what I felt each time when I look at it. Free will sometimes is a luxury for most people. The scariest thing is that after being suppressed for a period of time, we end up like caged birds, lost the faith of free will...

Entry or Exit by Comma Sprout 出口、入口 - 李子話畫

We often make a movement to get away of the unsatisfied current situation, but often, we start feeling being trapped again after novelties become familiar. It is funny the meaning of situation is given by people. People took things differently, the worst happenings for some can be turning points for some others. Are we stepping into another trap or just out of current one for good?

Helpless by Comma Sprout 何奈-李子話畫

It's not necessary to explain ourselves to others. However, life isn't easy for most of us when there are too much noise of being misunderstood. We are often forced to give up our principles so that we can go through those difficult time in our lives.

Nonexistence of Perfection by Comma Sprout 不存在的完美-李子話畫

People chase things that were considered valuable to their lives to match others' philosophy of life but not theirs. In the end, we all need to deal the fragile parts deep inside our spirits. In the sociality of big-feet bird, a male bird with large feet is considered handsome. Therefore, many male bird tries hard to enlarge their feet to reach the standard of perfection. Sadly, there is no perfection of any physical things. The idea of chasing perfection is doom to fail from the beginning.

Light-Clay-Gecko Magnets By CommaSprout 輕黏土壁虎磁鐵-李子話畫

Light clay classes were funny for kids and me. I had peaceful and quiet time while they were doing it! Therefore, I made few more Gecko Magnets with different themes. One went dizzy, and the other one went dead (X).

This Wednesday, during a class, I made another double-side owl pen cap as a sample for students. Recently I like leaving my work rough, cross-grained and hand-made veins on their  surfaces. This one was coloured by bright contrasting paints.

Caterpillar Pen/Pencil Cap by CommaSprout 毛毛蟲筆蓋-李子話畫


Playing with clay is always fun for me. The reason that I don't do it often is because my hands are too sensitive to many things. They aren't "handy" sometimes. Few days ago, I found 2 bags of light clay from a good friend's good friend, hmm... I played with it without thinking too much. After a while, there were few spheres to be put together to make an ugly but a little bit cute caterpillar pen cap. I've been always interested in those things that are  fairly called ugly but cute in my eyes. Today, I even drew something like this on the sample for my helmet painting class. I should upload their photos sometimes later.

Park Chair in Stag-beetle Form (by Comma Sprout) [台中國美館旁-鍬形蟲椅子] 李子話畫

In Taichung, there are few places that I like very much. In this photo, the chair was located in a small park next to National Art Museum in Taichung. It was taken on my way back to my ‘Toyota’ after returning some browed illustrated books. I’d been there few times but I couldn’t recall when this chair in stag beetle form was built there. I’m wondering if there are few more interesting chairs in Taichung…

A Drawing of Mermaid (by Comma Sprout) [人魚] 李子話畫


Few years ago, I drew this picture of Mermaid.
Its face is innocent alike.
However, the inside character of it might be cruel.
We are too often to be deceived by our own thoughts or beliefs.

Colourful Life - Water Colour & Kids (by Comma Sprout) 李子話畫 - 孩子的彩色人生!水彩的遊戲!






1.) 所有人都要參與準備與善後工做,特別是主角小朋友!
2.) 購買通過認證的水彩顏料,最好是可讓嬰幼兒使用的,一般安全性要求較高,如:手指膏顏料!重點是要能用水來調配濃淡的。
3.) 洗筆的容器(可多準備幾個,水容易髒,這樣一來,就不用一直換水了)。藉機教育孩子水彩筆在沾其他顏料前,要洗乾淨並先做確認(在多準備的廢紙上試畫看是否乾淨,或在乾淨抹布上吸一下水,就可以確認)。洗筆完後的動作也很重要,千萬不要用敲的把水分敲乾,水珠會噴濺到作品上,而是輕輕的在洗筆器的邊緣刮一下筆毛。讓多餘的水分流入洗筆器中)。
4.) 保潔墊,塑膠類的可以重複使用,鋪報紙容易破,加上報紙有油墨。
5.) 水彩筆,依大中小、圓頭平頭、可多準備幾種,長柄的適合小朋友握拿。
6.) 小碟子或盤子,盡量少用太小的調色盤,怕孩子在狹小的範圍內加水調色,用髒在旁邊的顏料,過程產生挫折感!
7.) 白色紙張(準備厚的、吸水性高紙數張,厚的紙張可避免在重複塗抹的過程破掉),白色紙比有顏色紙張更適合色彩的練習!
8.) 抹布(可以在過程中清理用、吸收水彩筆上過多的水分,或是萬一洗筆容器翻倒了,可以馬上做處理。如果發生意外,請耐住性子,千萬不要發脾氣。狀況如果不是意外,而是孩子故意的,請家長理性針對情形處理)
9.) 噴水器、海綿。打濕畫紙用(也可直接以大支水彩筆沾水將紙打濕)


1.) 顏色與水分多寡的濃淡調配。
2.) 顏色畫在乾的或濕的畫面上變化的差異
3.) 不同濃淡顏色邊界混合的變化
4.) 第一層顏色在乾掉或沒乾掉的時候,加上另一種顏色的變化
5.) 換色時筆要洗乾淨
6.) 事前的準備和事後的收尾。孩子參與和責任感的培養
7.) 開心的完成!
