A short Dune comic by Paul Pope

It's interesting to see how an artist like Paul Pope, with his own unique style, does a comic page on a tiny portion of the Dune series. It gives a nice fresh perspective to this old story. Hope it inspires you.

Back from outer space

Hello again everyone. It has been another hectic 2 months finding a new place, moving out, packing-unpacking, working at a new place and getting my own internet set up. Now that all that is sorted out, I'm looking forward to return as a regular at portrait day.

To commemorate my return from being out of orbit, a simple illustration of a spaceman!

Inks and markers on A3 sketchpad.

See you guys soon!

The Peranakan Ball 2009

What I've been held hostage by...

This year's theme is "Butterflies". As usual, there is a layer of gold hotstamping in certain areas of the illustration.The typeface for the main title was rejected and replaced with a more conventional one, but i prefer this typeface, feels more appropriate to me.

Msxi for Hansel A/W09

A collaboration with fashion label Hansel, to create an animation for Jo's A/W09 collection titled ROBOT GIRL!
Animation was initially done on pencil and paper, frame by frame, then animated on PS CS3 (which isnt the best program for animation, but due to my lack of skills, it was easier to manage) and stitching up of scenes on iMovie. If you do not possess programs like Final Cut Pro you could use iMovie to put animation and music tracks together. It took me approximately 3 weeks to conceptualise, draw and animate this piece. And all thanks to Adrian Wee for his sound expertise !

If you are a fan of Hansel, do drop by her very first boutique : The hansel Shop @ #01-02 Stamford House
