I am much surprised that this illustration i did was featured in renowned sites and blogs after my posting yesterday .The numbers of page views on my blog and FlickR was insanely high and a few Mario fans ( i presumed ) had emailed me wondering about the Trex in the illustration. That's will be Yoshi in case you want to know.
(You can also click on the illustration to my flickr link with explanation on the Japanese Kanji.)

Lastly , I like to thanks all this sites for their feature:

Monster of the year

This is a collabration between saltyshadow and me "based on a Chinese mythology, about “Nian” ( which means “Year” in English ), a furious monster that lived in the ancient time. Nian was born to be very ugly and ferocious, which looked like either dragons or unicorns. It is believed that around the Spring Festival, the monster would come down from the sky to hunt people."

Here we had kind of twisted the story to our version that the monster " Nian" had actually descended from the Sky like a shooting star. And the process of making that took us almost a month...

Monster of the Year

We also run through a lot of mocked up for this design. This is just some of the remaining files i had on my comp. Mocking up is a killer.

Panda Revolution VI tee

Panda Revolution” is my personal work of mixing the cuteness of Panda with propaganda & vintage style. It had been running in the net since 2007 and this is the no.6 design from the series inspired by Chinese Cultural Revolution era.



Panda Revolution VI tee

I finally subbed Panda Revolution VI upon the many requests and its up for vote in DBH 10k. I hope you can go over , vote and comment on it. Thanks and appreciated it.
For the design , i have removed some wording and edited some elements to fix in the tee.

VOTE FOR THE REVOLUTION!!!
