Came from Different Ships and in Same Boat now

Probably, watercolor is the most handy weapon to capture people at anywhere and anytime.

All of us immigrated to Australia from different countries except Aboriginal people. Each person has a precious story... I want to catch it.

I made these sketches
on streets, in train and at a library.
One boy silently looking beyond appeared to be very lonely. Later, I knew he was a refugee.Buskers from Latin America got a bit surprised at my sketching, but they really loved my work. I can sing a folkrore, "Carnaval" in Spanish and we had fun together.

Interesting. Most passengers were looking into mobile phones in train.
A young uni student was working hard on her
assignment. I assumed she was in a big rush before a due date in the morning train. (Good
luck! Thank goodness, I do not do it any more, yeah~~~!!).

Well, I made another sketch of the lady just next to me and we had a big laugh together. I gave it to her just before my jumping out from the cart. So, a bit shame, I cannot show you that sketch. Never mind.

This little child talked to me in Hindi. No worries! I had a nice "chat" with this girl.

Of course, I know nothing about Hindi and just repeated what she said with a big gesture and biiig smile. I feel, especially young kids do not care languages and they pick up my intonations and body language. Above all, my painting made her and her parents happy.I'm very happy to see my small works bring other people happiness.

In addition, so many different languages are spoken among people in train and on streets, even though we are losing one language every 4 or 5 weeks...
*If anyone is NOT willing to step over endangered languages, please read this article,

"Your language footprint."
This wonderful project team is struggling to archive our losing languages.
