Sketches #14

Some practices.






Drawing studies on the human anatomy. This is training the eye to see the body from different perspectives. Its also to train the artist to be able to draw the body in the right proportions. Details are omitted as its not the main purpose, but rather the form, shapes & proportion.

Sketches #13

Sketches #13

Tools: Blue ball-point pen only.

Some quick sketches. These came out pretty fast. I'm beginning to see some speed, but the quality is still not there.

Recently, I have begin to read Inoue Takehiko's REAL. Its about competitive wheel-chair basketball. The mood and storyline is great! So much to learn from the manga series.

诗歌我OK - 1st illustrated book!

诗歌我OK
Hi guys,

I just came back from Surabaya, Indonesia; a couple of days ago. It was really a very rewarding trip. Will be posting up some pictures soon.

Well, this is it. My first illustrated book, 诗歌我OK. It contains many specially chosen chinese poems done by St. Hilda's Primary School's students. This book is cater for childrens who wish to learn and improve their Chinese creative writings. There are practices and tutorials at the back which teaches how you can express yourself through writing Chinese poetry. The tutorials are easy to follow.

The cover art is done by my Studio Chief, while the rest of the drawings in it were done by me. Although, I feel that the drawings were nothing spectacular, but well, its my FIRST! So I'm still feeling kinda excited about it. However, I need to work on my drawings to be better and faster~!I'm thankful for the opportunity to draw the book though.

诗歌我OK will be out in all Popular Bookstores islandwide by end of this December 2009. The cost of the book is price from $5-$6 Singapore Dollars. If you have managed to get it, do drop me an email and tell me what you think! I'm currently doing another book, it would probably be out by January.

So do keep a look out! More updates soon!

As always, keep drawings!

Mises à jour!

Hi guys,

Its time to post some updates. It has been a very hectic schedule for me the past 2 months ever since I started working as a comic-artist. Its been an enjoyable and learning experience! Currently, I'm working on a book which will be published by this month. I'm really excited and hope to show it to you all.

Secondly, I'll be heading to Indonesia next week for promotional events and give some comics training and workshops. I'm hoping to bring some pictures back to show. Its my first trip oversea as an artist, and I'm looking foward to it.



So to relax myself, I decided to visit Kinokuniya for some shopping! The pic shown here are the things I have bought from the visit.

On the far left, its ImagineFX 50th issue. With interviews by legendary painter Craig Mullins, posters by Andrew Jones and our very own local, Stanley "Artgerm" Lau. I have also bought Malcom Gladwell's book, Outliers.

10,000 hrs and clocking...

Christmas Special - A Gift For Everyone~!



Sometime ago I did a commission for WEworkz Co-operative.

I did the lineart and design; Colors by the creative members of WEworkz's!

Its an organisation that was launched in March 2008, facilitated by the South West Community Development Council (CDC) and supported by the Singapore National Co-operative Federation (SNCF). The aim of WEworkz is to encourage and empower Singaporean women, especially the more vulnerable, who are unable to commit to full-time employment due to their family priorities or circumstances, to engage in home-based economic activities. The Co-operative provides training and business opportunities that fit the members’ personal skills and interests.

This year's Christmas, they have come up with their latest Christmas Special, offering items mostly hand-made by our women at prices up to 50% off the usual retail price!
