ohhh san francisco

Neale over at fivewhys found some really sweet stuff in the bay area.

i really love how the artist makes use of the depth caused by many layers of paint drips overlaying one another. thought the koi kinda looked like they were swimming underwater.

and this... brings back some memories of good ol' 8-bit dayslove the perspective. he wrote more about it in his post here.

Illustrations for Durex ads

Some illustrations that I did way back in May (seems so long ago) for Durex ad campaign. I think its out now in some magazines. The idea was to create a body painting look so I had to paint in some paint textures for the illustrations, however the textures aren't that visible in the finals..

Moe3ius redux- I bump it again

Originally posted by bro Pins- I highly recommend it if u missed it! The soundtrack is by Karl Bartos ( Kraftwerk !!). Now I understand Moebius better.

hi friends,
if you have forty-six minutes and forty-six seconds to spare
watch this documentary on Moebius aka jean giraud.
it's very inspiring and very cool.
moebius redux
(screen is kind of small tho')

(some of his works.
any moebius fans out there?)

whale-based on a real story

Recently, there was a report of a whale calf who got stranded from its mum in Australia , and mistaken a boat for its mum, and even tried to get milk from it. In the end, it had to be put to sleep ,as it was weak and infested badly with parasites..


Just for fun, inspired by a lady I saw on the bus - Ink and digital

Roadsworth the Documentary

There is a very clear line separating vandalism and art.
However, i can't decide which is which in this case.
This is a 6 minute trailer from the documentary Roadsworth - Crossing The Line.
Art or Crime, you be the judge.

ION artwork vandalised

This is 1 of the many graffiti that was sprayed over our artwork at ION. I think its a disgrace to our brothers/ sisters who practice graffiti tagging here that we have people who can just abuse a spray can like that.
Please respect other artist's work. To earn respect you need to show others respect! Anyone knows who's tag sign this is, please email me privately! This guy is a disgrace to the creative community imho!!
