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.

Silkscreen the Caveman

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!

IMPORTANT NOTICE- please take note

Hi everybody- if you are approached directly by some people for some projects- please think about how much fees you will be paid and for what cost. Please double check with myself or Fleecircus if you are not sure.

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!!

Awesome weather

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.

Hi everyone, I need some advice on enlarging illustration and yet maintaining high picture resolution. I don't work in vectors and I ink my drawings and paint them in Photoshop or the traditional way. My working size is usually within a4 to a3 size. If I wanted to enlarge my work to a1 and bigger (sticker for wall mural/standee size?) how should I go about it? Please advise! :)
