fight fight fight!


Two old men were fighting on bus 61 today. The yellow shirt man wanted to get out of his window seat. But the blue man didn't give him enough room. The yellow man started scolding the blue man who then challenged the yellow man to a fight. blue man started shoving. Yellow man snatched an umbrella from an old auntie to use as a club. All the aunties in the bus started panicking and yelling and pulling them apart with the help of a malay man. All was peaceful again when they sat 3 seats apart. Yellow man eyed blue man as he got out of the bus. This happened at the seat right in front of me.

In UWeekly


This week's UWeekly (issue 137), mentions the OIC portrait day in a feature on flea markets. Loosely translated, the 2nd paragraph of the article on MADD says
"Don't miss out on the portrait drawing event on Saturday from 2pm. Just pose for about 15 mins to let the portrait drawing enthusiasts and artists present (sometimes more than 20 people) draw you. Select from the all the completed works the one you like best and purchase it for $8."
The picture's really tiny, but I think you can spot two of the OIC posters! :)

My 1st test drawing from my new pen tablet.

Nothing, We're Just Talking

MEOW :}
Truly upsetting to be M.I.A for a long time. Truth is, every time i feel like i've got a good post, a greater artist like kaunth (ke ke) or someone else, will post before me and i just end up discarding the whole darn draft! lol. KAY, i thought i might just share, i'm only human!

Featured below are some stills from my animation/film:
"Nothing, we're just talking"
A make believe transit of pretend conversations,
over scenes that have grown to be insignificant; (Please, read more)

View the full animation/film here.

concept art for theme park




Concept art for a haunted house theme park that was rejected. I was thinking of Mr. Renfield from Dracula, the figure was to be a moving prop (spasms) and projectors from behind the prison bars would project bat shadows onto the floor.
