Drawing from memory

Oscar Wilde once said, “Memory… is the diary that we all carry about with us.”

True enough. Can you believe that  I drew this based on memory only?

I did not have underwater camera so I use my memory to record things I saw during my trip to Tioman few years back. To me this was quite an accomplishment as I don’t always remember things. I guess when we really want to remember, we can really remember. But this could not be compared to what Stephen Wiltshire can do. Really amazing! Watch this video: Drawing from Memory. I want his brain (in Sylar tone).

P/S: I must visit them fish soon. But on upper part of East Coast. Perhentian is on my mind.
