HomeTown

HomeTown

After weeks of commercial works, I finally have time to work on this piece. There are stil some minor alterations and editing I need to do before I'm happy, but its okay for me to show now.

Its a learning process and a phase of self-discovery as I paint this. Certainly, I'm very happy to work on this. As I paint, I began to think of my first large scale painting - "Heart of the City". I began to think of how I would approach this painting when I was then, and vice versa. Its interesting that what I would do in the past on that piece, I will not be using it here. I believe that is GROWTH as an artist.

Hope you all enjoy it.

Winning Look 3 HD version



This is a HD version of the Winning Look 3 - Finale.

I like this last version very much. Probably, due to the fact that I'm too use to doing artwork on landscape, thus creativity was able to flow more easily.

There wasn't much design difference from the previous one, except that this time round, I didn't add any flowers. The arrangements of the layout had to be changed due to it been landscape.

Thank you.

Yoshihiro Tatsumi - A Drifting Life.

EXCLUSIVE EVENT
When:17th January 2010 (Sunday), 2.00 p.m. ~
Where:Kinokuniya Singapore Main Store, Crossroads

This Sunday, famed mangaka; Yoshihiro Tatsumi will be having a session at Kinokuniya Singapore Main Store, Crossroads on 17th January 2010, Sunday at 2.00pm.

The 74-year-old mangaka began drawing manga as a child, but he quickly rebelled against the form’s aesthetic limitations. manga was aimed largely at children, and its emotional and intellectual palette was limited. He then went on to create a bolder, darker and more realistic form of manga, which he termed as gekiga. And he became one of Japan’s most important comic artists.

Home-grown film-maker Eric Khoo, who is hugely influenced by Tatsumi when he was writing and drawing comics in his early 20s, has decided to make a full-length animated feature after he came across Tatsumi’s autobiographical A Drifting Life.

Among many of Tatsumi’s works in Japanese, you can find some of his mangas translated into English also available at Books Kinokuniya – Good-Bye, Abandon the Old in Tokyo, The Push Man and Other Stories.
