Paint, Paint, Paint!

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

i’ve gone from click click drag drag to paint paint paint, enough vector drawings for the past 1~2 months, its great to switch things around! thankfully for the opportunity to participate in a few upcoming exhibitions(new york, washington & spain), i get to messing with brushes again, start fresh, experiment, re-learn and most important, just enjoy the painting process….

i probably sounded like a noob here, honestly, i’ve just discovered theres such thing as STAY-WET PALETTE! they are overpriced in nz as usual, so i’ve made my own! above is my $3.5(NZD) DIY stay-wet palette, A4 file case from DAISO + 2 paper towel(wet) + baking paper!

it works perfectly! paints didn’t dry for over 3 days! :-)

no sneak peeks as contract doesn’t allowed, however, new series of painting involves new HOLLOW THREAT characters, ideas that inspired by the recent visit of my 1 year old little nephew…

this is a brush stroke study during a break…

i’ll have the exhibition details up in the next few days, stay tuned! :-)


hands on clutter magazine

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

yay! finally got my hands on clutter 16!! to be honest, this is my first clutter magazine, sadly NZ magazine shops don’t carry them(and many other great art zines), they could have one less women’s weekly on shelf?

issue 16 covers all aspect of today’s designer toy, vinyl, 3d printing, japanese soft vinyl and i shared some resin toy process/tips in my interview! my thanks to the very talented nick for the interview and making my pages all pretty & colorful…hehe, clutter sure is one of the better designed zine! (so is their website)

if you want to get into toy making, or simply love toys, this is a must have isuue! clutter available world-wide, find your nearest stockist here!
