Trying out a new style using longer strokes in pen. I think I’d rather stick to stippling…

Reviving my ARTBlog!

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.

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! 😀

Art Request: Pegasus Stippling

January 24, 2010 at 5:27 pm | Posted in Animals, Pen | 4 Comments

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! :]

NUH Art Canival Works

January 24, 2010 at 5:20 pm | Posted in Animals, Pen | 3 Comments

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! ❤

Snowy Owl

Arctic Hare

Arctic Fox

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! 😀

TERM 2 ILP Submission: Papercut

May 27, 2009 at 9:49 pm | Posted in Animals, Designs, Development, Papercraft, Papercutting | 1 Comment

Presenting my submission for Term 2’s ILP submission:


This is the final papercut made from white cardstock and painstakingly handcut by XY! (: The draft is now being exhibited in its own little corner in the Inner Plaza. I named the draft “Polar Lights” out of sheer desperation. I don’t think I’ll name this piece yet. Because the design was made through pure spontaneity and random mumbo jumbo. Can you find all the animals? 😀

2-D Deer Papercut

I decided to try something new for ILP, and here’s the result.

I improvised as I did this, so I didn’t really plan for it or anything. I like the grass; it was made from single sheet folded in two! Haha. (:

Winged Fox (or Wolf?) Papercut

April 21, 2009 at 9:11 pm | Posted in Animals, Papercutting | Leave a comment

Here it is! I just finished it today. I remembered Mr G saying something about Cornelia Parker, so we tried out some shadow effects at the Photo and Film room during ILP today.

I’ve gotten a little tired of drawing these stuffs. I want something more expressive, more dynamic, more me:/

p.s. if you noticed the weird pattern on the neck, it’s because I accidentally cut it so I glued it back but it’s not in the right position… 😛

Random Sketches.:: [Confrontation] ::.

April 17, 2009 at 9:39 pm | Posted in Animals, Doodles, Drawings, Ink, Sketches | 1 Comment

Finally less realistic drawings and more random doodles. This is something that came up in my mind yesterday. Firey pheonixes have always been a motif in my work. I’m recently introducing fawns and deers now. Love the idea, don’t like the lousy penart. :/
