Cold Cuts (2013)
Last year I got invited to Bloom Arts Festival. Which is a local arts fest dedicated to young contemporary artists. I was pretty ecstatic about it. It felt really validating as an artist to be noticed by the community. Kinda wish I did better tho.
Here’s the story. I set out to paint a triptych about how some of us can trivialise death and dehumanisation. But, I ended up only really finishing one piece because I ran out of time. This was also during the time I was preparing for my Hong Kong trip. Anyway, I hope I get invited to the next one again. Next time, I’ll do something big.Above is the only painting for my triptych that I actually finished. It was hung alone in Bloom, and it spoke about nothing because the piece was seen incomplete. Blegh.
I posted this late because I was feeling to bummed about the whole thing. I’m a bit over it now.
I need to get better at time management, I guess.

Experimenting With Watercolor Brushes

I made a tiny video thing. Mostly to test out screen-recording again. Anyway, I recently bought @kyletwebster's watercolor brushes and I’m in the middle of trying to learn how to use them. So it’s a bit rough and I make a few goofs here and there. Did this sketch in around 20 minutes.

I know how to paint with actual watercolours, but the digital version behaves a tad differently. This’ll take some practice, but I’m always excited and happy to learn so this should be fun.

Also, the line art was drawn using a brush from Kyle Webster’s Runny Inkers Set. I’ve been really enjoying his brushes, and they are quite impressive.

Here’s the thing I doodled below.

Love (2014)

Ave Aves {2014}

Koji commissioned me to make the poster for his thesis film. He wanted something that looked like a vintage National Geographic cover. But I like taking free-reign on design so I went and played with the idea instead.

I only worked on this for two days due to my busy schedule and the tight deadline. So it’s a bit rough, but I’m fairly happy with it.

Below the poster are the initial studies I made before I started working on it. It’s an experimental art film that attempts to answer the question of why a bird is like an encyclopedia.

I decided to frame a magnified view of the feathers. I think, without the gold embellishments, one could view the feathers in a different light. Funny how visual elements can influence your perception.

Anyway, you can watch the teaser HERE.

Also, thanks for the job, Koji!

Salvaged Wood {2014}Experimenting with Kyle Webster’s watercolor brushes again. It almost looks like real watercolors! It’s amazing. This brush is great, but I’m still getting used to it.

Quick Beetlejuice sketch for @Sketch_Dailies.
Love this movie. Didn’t want to do the original design tho.
Thought I’d try and experiment with Kyle Webster’s watercolor brushes. I’m still getting used to it but the results are interesting. Of course, there’s no substitute for the real thing, but the brushes are pretty neat.

This was a random idea I got while I was at work. It began with a dumb Twitter Doodle, and I ended up wanting to have it on a shirt. So here we are…
The tank top version looks cool, but I could never pull off a tank.

Thank you for following me. :)Also, I’ll be flooding the Wonder Trade with Luvdiscs. People might find this annoying, but it wouldn’t be Valentine’s without annoying hearts getting in your face. Poké-love!
