Hi everyone! I will be moving this ARTBlog to a shiny new home at exfactorize.wordpress.com! I am moving the old works from this blog over, and will be updating from there onwards. See you there! 🙂
Trying out a new style using longer strokes in pen. I think I’d rather stick to stippling…

Alright, I have to make a commitment to myself to update this blog as often as I upload pictures on my Facebook albums. So here are two more journal covers I made for Year 1 Sem 2 and Year 2 Sem 1! I am currently using the Arctic Owl journal for school.
Front and Back covers
Hi everyone! I’m into my fourth week of school at LASALLE College of the Arts. I’m studying BA(Hons) Design Communication and this calls for a new sketchbook!
I still had my beloved Singaore Biennale 2006 BELIEF tape from Leny a few years back and I decided to create a sketchbook cover design:
Here is the zebra design before sticking it onto the cover!
Here’s the book and it’s freshly minted cover in all its glory! 😀
Frame Of Mind (2010)
Mixed Media Installation: Paper, Lightbulbs,Balsa Wood etc
In my pursuit of freedom,
I asked, “What is this thing you call Freedom?
I cannot see it. Nor hear nor touch nor smell.
How do I know if it’s mine?”
“It always has been. It’s all in your Mind.”
I was reminded of my blog today and my promise to update it, so here’s something for a school CIP event I did that never got used.
The beneficiary was Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that helps children with cleft lip disorders. The CIP event was a concert held in our school auditorium, and my task was to design publicity materials for the event.
This was my first try on a logo with the theme “Metamorphosis” in mind. It was my SECOND pen tool drawing and it took a whole morning to figure out how to draw the basic shapes.
The logo was then used for the concert tickets.
This was my first try at the poster design. I didn’t like how it turned out. 😦 So I redid the design completely and here is the result:
I am super proud of this design! Sadly, the committee did not use any of my poster designs to lower costs. 😦
Hey everyone! Yes, I know my last post was, what, since January?!? Just to let you guys know, I AM STILL ALIVE. And so is this blog. Some quickie updates:
1. I just finished my prelims and will be taking my A levels in Nov/Dec this year. *shivers*
2. I finished my A level H2 Art Coursework! I can’t show you the pictures yet, but it’s a PAPER INSTALLATION. 😉
3. I do have some new drawings and stuff while doing prep, so I might upload those… check this space!
I’ll be back! 🙂
After the carnival, I got a request to make a larger-scale stippling work similar to my previous three “Arctic Animal” series. The artwork was to be given to a colleague of my friends’ to put in her daughter’s room. So there wasn’t much of a theme or criteria for me; I was pretty much free to come up with an image of my choice. In the end, I decided to paint my good friend the Pegasus in a dreamy moonlit night. Here is the result:
Pegasus (White opaque marker pen stippling on black poster painted canvas)
Needless to say I am very, very proud of this work. It took me about a day to finish, including the time spent surfing, facebooking and watching drama online. I hope the owner is happy with it! :]
Here are some works I managed to create in time for the NUH Charity Carnival on 23 November 2009. Thanks to fellow Peachers Wei Rong, Kae Yuan, Sam and Zhang Quan for coming to help! ❤
All three were made using white opaque pen marker on canvas painted over with waterproof black poster colour. It was done with my favourite technique, stippling, and took me hours to complete each. But it was well worth the effort, and I sold all three at the carnival! 😀
To all you reading this blog: I’m finally back!! Sorry for the uber-long hiatus; been rather busy with school. So here’s a series of four papercut photos to be submitted for ILP 2:
