It's that time of the month

HELLO~

It's that time of the month again! That's right, we'll be at MAAD again this coming Friday, 7 Nov. Our DOGs art prints will be ready for sale too. Do come by for some shopping and to say hi!

We're left with 19 days to the ending of our campaign and still very far from our target. :( Please continue to help us spread the words. Every little contribution will go a long way in helping our fur-kids.

Here's a snippet of what you'll get for our 5th DOGs illustration.

Thank Youuu!

A BIG thank you to everyone who came down to support us at MAAD last Friday! We actually made the most number of sales that day. Of course this wouldn't have been possible without your love and support. It was really heartwarming to see familiar faces among the customers.

Special thanks to my bunch of crazy and awesome friends - Claire, Berri, Alivia, Adric, Ezra, Dennis and Don who popped by just to say hello, bought me yummy food (because they said I'm too skinny) or offered their help! I'm really blessed. ^^

Basic Illustration Class - Lesson 3

Hello guys! Thankfully I was able to retrieve the files I lost on Saturday! So here's what I did for my illustration class few weeks back.

Before the lesson starts, we always do a recap on our previous lesson:

Perspective

1 point and 2 point perspective

1 point and 2 point perspective

3 point perspective

3 point perspective

Moving on, we looked up for some references and came up with our 3 point perspective desert illustration.

Ta-dah!! Here's my incomplete version with funny looking little stick men walking across the desert. They're probably searching for the legendary giant! See the huge footprints? :p

lesson 3-4.png

And here's Jimmy's version. I know, mine didn't even come close. Lol. 

If you're free this Friday, do come by to the Red Dot Museum as we'll be there again from 5pm till midnight with lots of lovely stuffs for you. As usual, all our items will be on SPECIAL price that day. And 10% of our sale proceeds will go to a local dog shelter.

A Lovely Encounter

First of all, I'd like to say a BIG thank you for your support at our MAAD event last Friday! It was our 4th time participating and the response was very encouraging.

As mentioned, we'll be donating 10% of the sale proceeds to a local dog shelter. In fact, this is an ongoing cause we support (no matter where you purchase our products/service; online, flea market etc). So, please continue to give us your support.

Secondly, I've listed our last few pieces of handmade cards and bookmarks on Etsy. Here are just some images of our lovely handmades. More designs can be found on our Etsy store, http://etsy.me/1cQ2FD3 

I won't be creating these items anymore so it's your last chance to get them. Hurry over to our store now!

Lastly, I'd like to end my post with a lovely encounter I've had at the post office yesterday.

I was at the counter packing a customer's order when this lady who was also there to send out some parcels came up to me. She pointed at the Christmas postcards I was holding in my hands and asked if I drew them. I told her I did and she exclaimed 'Wow, they're beautiful. You're really great!'. As we were the last two customers to leave the place, we chatted abit outside the post office.

Apparently, she'd just sent her daughter to an art school and she couldn't help but feel concerned about her career path after she graduates. I shared with her what I do as an illustrator/designer besides freelancing; selling my works at flea markets, doing consignments and having my artworks licensed by art licensing companies. I told her that I'm very happy because I'm doing something I love. She seemed impressed. Finally she smiled at me and said, 'You are very brave. All the best to you.' 

Yes, it may not be any easy path but it's definitely one of the greatest choices I've made. :)

Yes, it's happening AGAIN!

We're diving right into another flea market after an uninteresting one just a week ago (read all about it HERE). I'm very sure it's going to be much more promising and exciting this time round. Why? Because it's not simply any ordinary flea market, BUT a market  of ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS (MAAD)! You just love the name don't you?
