Stars Collector

I was flipping through my sketchbook and found some old sketches/ ideas that didn’t make it to my picture book, this was one of them. So I turned it into a black & white drawing instead. Those of you who loved my earlier works of simple black & white line drawing style, this one is for you.

We're Back!

Can't believe we actually left this blog quiet for a year! We're very sorry for the neglect. However, we still post on instagram and facebook regularly, so please follow us there to ensure you don't miss out on any updates. On a side note, we'd created separate Instagram account for personal stuff so you'll only be seeing work related posts (and occasional pics of sweet Milo) on our Dollgift account.

As of today, we'd closed our Etsy store to fully focus on our main website and Redbubble. You can find lovely wall arts, stationeries, clothing, phone cases and home decors of our artworks on Redbubble such as these:

Like what you're seeing? Head over to our Redbubble store for more - www.redbubble.com/people/dollgift/shop

If you're looking for something unique (think one-of-a-kind!) for yourself or a loved one, we offer customisation/ personalisation services as well. For instance, our couple portrait would make perfect wedding, anniversary or valentine's day gifts. You can choose from a selection of packages we offer to suit your needs. Please visit our newly added page - Shop --> Couple Portrait for full details. In fact, we spent quite an amount of time on re-organising this site so it's easier to navigate around than before. Feel free to drop us an email if you have any question!

Meanwhile we're working on wedding invitation cards series. Do subscribe to our blog or stayed tuned for updates on instagram and facebook.

That's all we have for you today.

Superhero Adventure (part 8)

I've decided to expand my search for superheroes to non-superheroes as well since many interesting characters I spotted can hardly be classified as a superhero. This was one of them.

I found this cute little fellow as I went hiking in the forest over the weekend. He was watering some mushrooms.. many mushrooms actually.. like literally over hundreds or even thousands of them? He told me he lives there with his brother and they both have a thing for mushrooms.. not sure why. I think he mentioned something about it making them grow taller and stronger? Hmmm...

Which character(s) would you like me to search for next? Share your thoughts and fantasy with me! If your idea get selected, not only will you be able to see your favourite character posted here, you'll also receive a print of the drawing which you can hang on your wall and see everyday! ;)

I don't post my Superhero/Character Adventure here all the time, so if you don't want to miss it, follow me on Instagram, http://instagram.com/dollgiftbyrheea
Or FB page for firsthand updates, www.facebook.com/DollgiftByRheea .You can also subscribe to my website; I'd specially created a gallery page for my adventure!

Also, I've uploaded new designs to my Redbubble store, don't forget to check them out!

Past Works - Melancholy Collection

Here are some paintings/ drawings I did between 2009 and 2010 for my Melancholy collection. It was one of my favourite collections; dedicated to a close friend I lost to a car accident 12 years ago. Although I try to create only happy drawings now, sometimes I do missed painting melancholy art as it allows me a space to express and release any sadness.

A Little Too Late (ink)

I had my first real art lesson when I was about 9. My parents signed me up for weekly art classes at some community centre because they couldn't afford piano lessons (something I'd also love) back then. So that was where I learned to draw/ paint with different mediums - mainly pencils, crayons and watercolour. I stopped at acrylic painting when I was about 13 and got busy with school life. Anyway long story short, years later, I caved in to peer pressure's 'art degree will get you nowhere', 'you can't make a decent living making art' perception and chose fashion design over fine arts course. The big irony? That's exactly what I'm doing now - making a living with my art.

Admittedly I still can't draw human figures in the correct proportions; I can't draw fingers and toes, my perspective and shadowing is terrible. Ha! But that doesn't stop me from drawing. And yes, I still dream to become a picture book illustrator someday.

'The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams'. -Oprah Winfrey

Merchandise such as totebags, phone case, pillows etc, are also available on Redbubble, www.redbubble.com/people/dollgiftbyrheea/shop (I'm in the midst of getting the entire collection on Redbubble, do check back soon!

For A Good Cause (Saving Turtles)

Did you know a female sea turtle lays between 50 - 130 eggs (depending on the species) and as many as 7 clutches of eggs each nesting season? Did you also know that the sand temperature will determine the sex of the turtle - cooler sand produces more males, warmer sands produce more females? 

Sadly, only an estimated one in 1,000 to 10,000 will survive to adulthood... natural obstacles and threats caused by humans are driving them to extinction. Therefore it's really important that we make sure the sea turtles don't die out before it's too late!

As mentioned in my earlier posts, the Singapore Scout Association (SSA) partners with World Wide Fund for Nature Malaysia (WWF-Malaysia) annually to raise awareness on the importance of Wildlife Conservation; Project Orion: Rovering with Turtles being the sixth project in the series of annual project this year. You can follow them on FB or Instagram to find out more about this project (details below). If you'd like to make a donation to this meaningful project, you may contact them directly or purchase one of these items I'd created for the fundraising effort:

Superhero Adventure (part 1)

I know you've been waiting for THIS. :D

Well, I spotted the first Superhero at the corner of a street practicing his web spinning skill this morning. I wanted to approach him to teach me to spin some web but.... Judging from the webs he'd spun, I thought maybe he still needs more practice? What do you think? 

I wonder which Superhero will I run into next. I'm so excited! You can follow us on Facebook >> www.facebook.com/DollgiftByRheea .Or Instagram >> http://instagram.com/dollgiftbyrheea for firsthand news.

Over the past week, I've been sharing little doodles on my Facebook page/Instagram and received feedback from some of my followers that they'd enjoyed them. Thanks for letting me know! It means alot to me to have your support. In fact, I created these little doodles to remind myself to be a little better each day. I hope they inspire you to do the same!

One of my favourite doodles say, 'Be silly'! Wouldn't it be great if we can incorporate some fun and laughters into our daily lives? Let your hair down, relax and be a little silly today. Let us spread some love and laughter~

Don't forget to follow my Facebook page or Instagram to see more cute doodles!

Today I was tagged in a photo by a friend who had customised a drawing for his daughter some time ago... I must say, I was really surprised, flattered and humbled by this sweet little girl. Thank you, Casey, you really made my day. :)

My Redbubble

After neglecting my Redbubble store for a year (guilty face), I was surprised to receive a notification from out of the blue that I'd actually made a sale. My very FIRST sale on Redbubble. Ha! This motivated me to revisit my store and did a revamp. I'm glad to say, they made so much improvement since my last visit. It's way easier to upload files to their product mock ups and navigate their website now.  Did I mention that my illustrations are looking alot better on their new product mock ups than before?

Well, these are just some ideas for you. Please head over to my Redbubble store for more styles and product range, www.redbubble.com/people/dollgiftbyrheea.

Update: Guess what. Right after I'd trashed out this company who didn't pay me for using my artworks for two years (see one post down), I received a cheque from them!! How amazing... Maybe they'd sensed this coming even before I wrote the post eh. Nonetheless, I'm still happy to be getting back what I deserve. Heh. 

❤ Xoxo, Rheea.
