Not posted for a while as I've been busy with a commission...big learning curve
(Hong Kong street scene), will show the results soon.
For a 2012 update click here for another bitter melon sketch

  2. bitter melon! I love it and missing it. I used to hate it whenever my mom cooks it, and couldn't figure out why people would eat such a thing... and now, I can't figure out why I love it either. =)
    Thanks for your comment Deb. I hope my hand will heal soon too, and the kitten is getting bigger now ^^
    I have been wanting to do something with HK street scene too... but I am sure nothing as big as what you're doing. =) Can't wait to see it!

  10. I had to go look that one up since I had never seen, heard of, or eaten one! Great sketch! Now I'm curious as to how they taste!

  11. Thanks everyone, for those of you curious about the taste they are very very BITTER! I believe they are good cooked with something very rich and chillies and ginger but I still haven't acquired the taste. Apparently good for cleansing the blood and liver.
