Secondly, Jun Tsunoda. You'd probably classify her work as fine art. But I'm sure there are lots we illustrators can learn from her use colours, balance and shapes. From giving it a try, I think abstract paintings aren't as easy to create as they look.

The Diary of Amos Lee: Girls, Guts and Glory!
Hot on the shelves, 2nd of the series, following the successful "I sit, I write, I flush!” (Top 10 of Straits Times, Bestseller's List).
Written by Adeline Foo, “Girls, Guts and Glory!”, is packed with more full scene illustrations as compared to the first book, including "photographs" taken by Amos with his Polaroid camera (Sneeky, sneeky). This Project took about 3mths to complete including layout and cover. Although I would have liked more time to improve on a few things, I reckon it’s pretty decent work and a step up from the previous book.
Latest news, we have ran outta copies and bringing in more for the bookfest at Suntec. It is nice to see that hard work with heart thrown in is appreciated. So a word of thanks to everyone and yeahhhh... I've got my social life back. – Enjoy :D

Some caricatures I did of some personalities for a microsite. The characters' limbs were done in layers so that they can be animated. Some of them look a little stiff here.

Here’s another comic illustration of myself eating a fritter. However, in this case, it is not entirely a fritter. This local delicacy is named “You Tiao” (in romanized Chinese). You may read the following cut n paste from Wikipedia:
“You tiao, you char kway, or yau ja gwai, sometimes known in English as Chinese cruller fried bread stick or Chinese doughnut, is a long, golden-brown, deep fried strip of dough in Chinese cuisine and other East and Southeast Asian cuisines and is usually eaten for breakfast. Conventionally, youtiao are lightly salted and made so they can be torn lengthwise in two. Youtiao are normally eaten as an accompaniment for rice congee or soy milk.”
I love to eat it dipped in coffee for breakfast!!

painted version of the wonderland cover for the french edition plus some sort of auction/exhibition... oil on canvas, 30x40 inches.. was interesting to see if the digital stuff could be replicated, but also a little constricting having a ready reference to copy :p

What I've been up to... Not completely happy with the layout, but fairly satisfied with the illustration.Oh well, was trying an ambitious layout so there's a bit of a good and bad in it heh! Live and learn! :)
Also, added some visuals of my initial proposal sketches for this job.
Here is something that I tried out on my caveman silkscreen design using my PC. If you like this, bring down your tee and try print it during our December OIC day. Have fun!
The recent one is for some hand painted laptops ( 20 pieces- to be used as prizes in a contest ) which we have negotiated and rejected because the fee is too low.
The laptop cost - S$1.8k + your hand-painted work- it should cost more than S$2.5k in value ). Please do not be greedy and spoil the market by doing it at anything less than S$1.5k per piece. If the client can afford to GIVE as a prize a 1.8K laptop- they should be able to pay the artists MORE.
Please take note. Don't spoil OUR market.
Since coming back, I have been running around looking for good hawkers' centers food. So far I have tasted prawn noodle, Chuey Kuey, fried Hokkien noodle, dim sum, fried carrot cake, Hainan chicken rice and etc... Dim Sum at Red Star Restaurant (Chin Swee Rd) sucks!! Hainan chicken rice opposite Bugis Junction along Bras Basah Rd serves too little chicken!! But its Laksa was terrific!! Henceforth this fun drawing to remember that special moment!!

Hello guys from OIC... I am back. Not very sure whether it is back for good, but it is good to be back after say about 3.5 years. No plans yet for now just lazing around catching up with friends and eating all the local delicacies. I missed Singapore coffee and Chuey Kuey the most, so the second day I was back, I had to have them. By the way I am really thankful for the weather to be so kind to us since last week, even though it is still extremely humid. I am literally swimming in my own perspirations and have to carry a big towel whenever I go. Well, if anyone of you guys do feel like having coffee do feel free to call me whenever. LOL :P I have nothing better to do for the moment.
