Hello people,
not sure if you guys are interested in letterpress printing at all. But yup, I found this nice little video about three guys and their big love for letterpress printing. I found it heartwarming.

PS: Anywhere in Singapore to do letterpress printing? Haha

Got to know that there will be an exhibition by a group of brave young Temasek Poly grads- centered on the idea of nudes and their love for print. The works on display range from illustration to graphic design to photography. This show was conceived as a refute to those who thinks that "PRINT IS DEAD".
I am posting this because I am "moved" by their guts and attitude.
date/ venue: 2 June, 7:30pm 2902 Gallery, Old School, Mount Sophia. (more info here)

Hi! It's been a while since I joined OIC. This is my first post.
I've always loved illustration and creative collaboration between artists. I am overjoyed to discover that there is a local community for the illustrators. Not to mention be part of it.
The above illustration is one I've done for Asian Geographic Magazine on a hip-hop article.

Thanks guys for keeping this blog going!
