2011

Banner collection 2010

Here's 4 banners created for this blog in 2010.

From bottom to top:
March , September , October and November banner. Not very productive this year. :D

I wanted to create a website this year but well, I'm kind of lazy and very use of doing the blog things....maybe i will do it sometime ..someday...

In 2010, everything turn out pretty well for the first half of the year and turned to a total flopped in the later half. (>へ<;)

On the positive side, i managed to sell my poster for the first time and will be planning to do more own products in future.
*********************************************************************************
New Year Resolution for this 2011

In 2011, i just hope things and works will go with a steady and calm state. I will be moving out to live on my own and some big events of a lifetime will be commencing. ( ^ ▽ ^;)

My resolution for this year should be work harder, get thinner and earn more. lol.
Best wishes to everyone.

Live long and prosper.
Happy New Year 2011!

Panda Revolution VIII

Panda Revolution VIII

Panda Revolution VIII
Fly me to the moon

"Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling, kiss me..."

Inspired by Inspired by Soviet Union's Propaganda poster and a continuous of Panda Revolution II.

~~~~~~~~

*The last Panda Revolution was created last year exactly this month and recently Panda revolution is super hot and famous in China. Thanks to some evil designers/merchants from China who stole it and sold it as a new brand line in Bejing which is why you are seeing a smaller pic with a big clear watermark today. Probably this won't help but hey... the show still need to go on...

This is also specially dedicated for the Mid-Autumn Festival also known as the Mooncake Festival 中秋節" which is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar.. which happen to be Today......so I'm wishing everyone here a Happy Mid Autumn Festival 中秋节快乐 :D

Tattoo Extreme Magazine

Remember the very first set of tattoo(s) i created a while ago for a freelance project?

Somehow it caught the eye of an editor from a Taiwan Tattoo Magazine and they decided to give me a full featured on their magazine and an interview to introduce me to the folks in Taiwan. I might said I'm very lucky that my first creation got me all this. Amazing~!!
 
In return , i decided to give them a full interview in Chinese. Although i speak Chinese all the times but when it come to typing in Chinese, its never failed to give me a hell of times.

Monster again

Monster of the Year


A collabration with saltyshadow "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.

We decided to re submit this design to Threadless. Do vote for us if you like it.

"Traditional Japanese art can be characterized by the use of strong, technically perfect lines and attention to detail. From the carefully prescribed movements of Butoh dance, the elegant sweep of calligraphy, to the Ukiyo‐e woodblock prints of Hiroshige, all these art forms exhibit great
elegance and precision. These elements have carried on into the Anime and Manga of popular culture, as can be seen echoed in the neon of Tokyo billboards and the refined lines of modern design..." Read more at the official site.

The Third UK International Manga Art Show

The Third UK International Manga Art Show.

The Third UK International Manga Art Show.

The Third UK International Manga Art Show.
The Third UK International Manga Art Show.

Following the popular and artistic success of the first two International Manga Art Shows
Fairfields curated, one of which then went on to tour to the North of England, Fairfields is very pleased to curate ‘The Third UK International Manga Art Show’ this year.

This exhibition is very much about manga which is art, and also about manga influenced art.

Manga is now very much an international phenomenon, a very successful cultural export. Although essentially a Japanese art form, this exhibition has work by manga artists from all over the world, including Japan, China, Canada, the USA, Singapore and the UK. As an art form it requires both the traditional ability to draw well, and also a high standard of software skill

This is the second times that i had participated in this exhibition.
The exhibition was held in Fairfields Arts Centre on Monday 7th June to Saturday 10th July 2010.
