I guessed I had achieved my 08 resolutions by bringing more good artworks and designs to you whom like it.
Of coz I know I couldn't had done it without the many supports and votes from the folks here which is you, you and you. Yes you too. Thanks a million.
New Year Resolution for this 2009
1) Most important will be doing more exercise & keeping fit, I find myself getting fatter and fatter each day. Haha. For the past 35040 hours, I spent 60% of the times which is 21024 hours sitting in front of this screen, drawing and drawing and without doing much exercise except for my hands and brain. Hope I can really do something about this. I guess most artist and designer have to do something about it … lol
2) To get more designs printed on Tee I guess..
3)More Collaboration work ( Especially those who are in the waiting list , you know who u are. ha)
09 are going to be a pretty tough year due to recession and I’m already feeling the tension of it. Anyway, here’s just a few resolutions and goals for me to aim (* although I don’t quite follow it most of the times :D)…
Resubmitted my panda design in Uneetee (* Register if you had not)

I did this illustration and a tutorial for Adobe Illustrator CS 4 a few months ago
and it's up for download now. This is the first time I'm using AI to make illustration
so it might look stiff and .... you know what i mean. Ha~!
Anyway , It really an honor for an amateur illustrator like me to involve in project by
the "Godfather of Design industry", Adobe and be the first few to trial out the program. Really have lots of fun. :D
You can go to www.adobe.com/products/illustrator/howto/ to download different tutorials by various artists.

15minutes walk from our hotel ( Twin Tower Hotel )
Overall, we did enjoyed our 6 days stayed in Bangkok although there's few places of interest that we are not able to visit and also because of the protest and riot. Hopefully, when the situation is better and safe, we might plan for another trips there, sometime, next year.

Continue from the previous post, United Kranes.
Here's some drawing & characters design from the project which i did not post previously.
It was very kind of them to send me a pair of shoes from their new series, all the way from US.
(^ ^) b Sweet~!
Actually, I received it a months plus ago but was only free to post it up today. As I was busy helping out a friend on a children educational book that had took months for completion due to unforeseen circumstances. ( ~ ~!)p
Anyway , the project is somewhat completed (* I hope so) and yup I hope I had time to do more personal works soon ..
Other than that, some of the guys was asking me about the artwork and tutorial which I did for Adobe Illustrator CS 4. It won't be shown in the site I guess; most probably it will be included in the program. :D
A good news is I won another Tee contest~ Yay!
As usual, I was told not to tell anyone about it so until then I keep you guys’ update on this blog.

Gone with the wind
"In the future, the world we used to know had already gone with the wind and different from what we see today. Humans have caused Great illness to the Mother Earth, making the world a desolate place. "
Invited to participate in an Animé book project "a day in the Life of Neo New York" by Freestyle collective, and IdN . (Actual art exhibition of works TBD 2009.)
This project pays homage to the influence and style of Japanese animation and artists had to interpret, through their medium of choice, what a day in the Life of Neo New York would be like in the future.
I had tried to make this more anime style illustration , hopefully i had achieved that feel. And yes , I'm sucked in doing illustration like this so problems like lighting and perspective error can be easily spotted. ^__^!

Destroy III ( "破壊3"or "ぶっ壊せ3！)
Heavenly Cyborg , a robot character inspired by japan and Chinese cultural from one of my personal work .
(* Japanese word in the balloon mean tear up or rip)
Destroy I & II "(above)
Heavenly Cyborg was created in 2006 and they made their first debut ( lol) in Chapter Four of M0saic Monkey :Knocking on the heaven's door part 1.
"The robot was made of burning incense ( the 2 long tube behind that why the smoke on top of it) , some craving in chinese/japan cultural , altars (shape of the body) , Chinese opera ( the painting on their face) & armor from Chinese warrior."
Later in 2007 , New Heavenly Cyborg Alpha was created as the main role in another side story of Mosaic Monkey: Destroy whereby his mission was to destroy Mobile Kong Zeta , a robot drove by mosaic monkey.
So far , the illustration of the series "Destroy" had been featured in magazine , sold as a tee and will be exhibited in an exhibition soon.

- Ink with Sakura Pigma Micron 0.1 & 0.3
- Scan in and then clean up with Photoshop using Tablet
Below it's the coloring process...
4. Final design
Threadless LOVES Drawing
Above it's just a simple brief through on the process of Fade away using mixed media.
The other day, i finally found the DVD of "Dragon The Bruce Lee story by Jason Scott lee ( 1993)" in my local store which i been searching for very long and best of all ,they are having closing down sale ( haha).
I remember watching it during school days and i supposed Bruce lee said this before, " They are afraid because they do not know the beauty of the cultural ( Chinese cultural). Someone need to show them that."
I know this is not the regular type of design you often see in Threadless. No, I'm not trying to be special and i know probably it going to lose ( big time) , but i felt i should do something oriental sometime and perhaps show or share with you the beauty of cultural .
Design up for voting. Do give me your votes & comments if you like it.
* Poem by Lee Bai
Wallpaper : Download
*This design was pretty much inspired by a HK movie " A chinese ghost story."
