2012

Blog Banner collection 2011

Blog Banner from January to September.

Alright 2012 is coming soon and a new era is about to begin (hopefully not the last).
New Year mean new goals to achieve, and new resolution to be made.

In 2011, things and works turned out to be rough and pretty unstable. I tried to create a design/illustration every week and managed to create 24 artworks continuously, most of it were submitted to tee competition but unfortunately all had failed to be selected as a print. The most disappointing things is 3 of the big companies in the world had approached me this year but in the end, decided to go with someone else. Boohoo!~!~!

On the bright side, i started to sell my own posters this year through channels like facebook, blog and other social media and had managed to sell a total of 105 so far. That's not bad actually but of course, i can't do it without you. Thanks for supporting the real panda revolution created in Singapore. Those you find in China are just copycat.

Please kindly note*
I'm not from China, and Singapore is an independent country just like USA or Taiwan or Malaysia and not part of China.

Other then that, I'm glad that i had submitted my designs to Teefury & Woot which helped to bring my work to a broaden audience. In fact, one of the design from teefury made it into Tosh.0.













Pandastronaut tee printed by teefury on Tosh.0.
Watch "03:10" of this video. Yeah! This is the Panda Revolution!

Last but not least, I am married now and a new journey of life had began.

*********************************************************
New Year Resolution for this 2012

My resolution for this year is pretty same as last year, work more harder, get thinner ( by weight and not strands of hair )and earn more. lol.

Wishing everyone a happy new year 2012 and see you in 2013 if the Mayan calender is not the end! May all your resolutions come true! Peace to the world!

the 100th sold

the 100th poster sold

Just sold my 100th piece of poster/print and i'm currently posting some of the artworks, things and stuffs from my workplace.

Panda revolution VI could be my most hot favorite artwork ever!

Every now & then, someone will email me regarding where to get the postcard size of my work as they had saw it in the shops in the street of China and they didn't want to get it due to the "Poorly" written English sentence in it, and every now and then, I will reply them that , “It’s a stolen artwork of mine!"

Now if you ever see this work in China, I need to emphasize that this is not created in China. It was stolen! They are not created by the 798 bitches and brothers in the Art Street of Beijing either. These peoples are not even fitted to call themselves “Artist." They are just plain "robbers" .

Anyway, thanks for supporting me all this times.
Thank you (^∇^)>!

Panda Revolution 2046

Panda Revolution 2046

Ever wonder whats the panda revolution going to be in future?

Week 24:
Panda Revolution 2046
The future is in your hands.


I will officially stop creating "one design per week" after "week 25" because life happens and I'm going to be busy dealing with it for a while. I will be still creating design but only not once a week.

I sincerely thank you for your supports over the past 6 months. Thanks for voting for me in those various tee competitions i participated in and apologies as none have been selected to be printed on tee. Lady luck has not been smiling at me.
Nevertheless, it stills a good try for me as I have experimental different style and pushed myself to create 1 every week. It’s not an easy task and I really need to salute those that create 1 per day.

Lastly, I wanted to thank all who have purchased prints from me, until today I have sent out a total of 45 prints (and counting) in past 2 months time. It’s probably not a lot to some but to me it’s a lot of supports. I never thought I can sell this much so thank you all so much.(* I don’t want to make it sound like I’m leaving lol) That's all.

Pretty hardworking and productive week. :D

Week 19 :
This is a story of a little elephant who meets a bird who is a brilliant blue. He asks the bird how he got so blue and the bird said he flew so high that he reached the sky and the colour dripped all over him.

The little elephant decides that he wants to be blue rather than a dull gray so he decided he must climb to the highest mountains so he can suck the blue from the sky.

Panda Revolution X

 Panda Revolution X
 Week 15:

Panda Revolution X ( Unrated version)
My Flag, My Revolution and My shadow.

Inspired by China & Soviet Union's Propaganda poster. The writing below mean "Please support The Real Panda Revolution and strongly suppress pirated product from 798 brothercamp and Yeshulin's mei hua brand."

******
This is the first from the series that is not cute but bloody. For most of you who had been following Panda Revolution closely, you probably knew that it have been fiercely stolen and sold by the thieves from China in this couple of years and recently from Thailand. My works had been made into wallet, bag, mouse pad, ugly tee shirt, cup and etc... You can say I'm getting in the franchise lines but the sad thing is i don't get paid for my creation.

Anyway, this piece is specially created for the thieves from China. They had stolen my works and sold it as their own online. Yes, they might had benefited from my works but they will never step out from my shadow as most of you know that I'm the real creator and whatever they are doing right now is a kind of a promotion for me.

Lastly, for you out there regardless of races who believe in rights and justice, I hope you can help me to write in to taobao. My friends and I have been emailing their copyright team to remove the stolen artworks. They themselves had told us that their are a legal site and will not hesitate to remove any stolen artworks in their site. Until today, even after numerous numbers of emails and reporting of stolen artworks from my friends and me taobao had yet to remove any stolen artworks and they do not believe that I’m the original creator. I feel that they shouldn’t proclaimed themselves as a legal site as whatever the legal team in taobao.com is doing is irresponsible and not professional.

If you can do me a favor, please write in to this guy "Ding xian" from taobao.com, his email is dingxian@taobao.com and let him know who the real creator behind panda revolution. Flooding his mail is optional. Thanks.
革命熊猫X
我的旗帜,我的革命和影子


在这个系列当中,这是革命熊猫第一次引用了血腥与暴力。如果您是跟革命熊猫一起成长的,您可能听过革命熊猫几度被中国,甚至连泰国的盗版商偷盗制作成钱包,滑鼠垫,衬衫,杯子等等数之不尽的产品。您可以说我已经进入了连锁行业,一个被盗用的连锁行业!

现在我为那群盗取我的作品的中国鼠辈们798兄弟营与椰树林或梅花牌特别创作了这一幅画。
你们也许盗用了我的画作以牟取利润,但是你们将永远活在我的阴影之下,因为我才是众所周知革命熊猫真正的创作者。你们只是在宣传我而你们的所为,只是丢尽了我们华人的脸!

最后,不管您是什么国际或种族,如果您相信正与义的所在,希望您可以帮我联络掏宝网。虽然,我和我的朋友们已多番尝试电邮他们的知识版权团队,想借此举报停止画作的盗用与盗卖,可惜至今他们都没有做出任何的行动,甚至不相信我就是原创作者!既然如此,他们还能称自己为合法的网站吗?根本就是说一套做一套,脱裤放屁,既不转业,更不负责任!

最后,我恳请您的帮助,以您办得到的方式通知这一位掏宝网的 "定闲",告知他谁才是革命熊猫真正的原创作者!他的电邮是 dingxian@taobao.com。在此我先感谢您.
