I Won

I found myself a surprise winner of a set of cool zines from Steve.

I enjoyed Steve's post about the zine fest he was in and must confess that I missed the last para about the giveaway. So, it was such a delight to realise that my comment being the second one meant receiving a very generous gift from Steve.

Nostalgia Wrap

This wrapping paper would make a great poster. All the little things that makes up my memory of childhood.

This other classic based on old mosiac flooring is fantastic too.

A*Live Oct 2010

The October ATC session saw a more intimate crowd.

The theme was Artist. There was an art appreciation game followed by all of us trying to extend the work of a famous artist.

And we had some interesting ATCs based on the theme too.

Vicki's Little Li-zee

Little Li-zee

Vicki makes wonderfully fine little felt creatures and pasteries. I was given Little Li-zee.

She hopes to sell her creations and I think her creativity and fine workmanship would be appreciated by many.

I wish her all the best!

IF- Transportation

Read about Buckminister Fuller's Dymaxion car as I was thinking about this week's Illustration Friday topic. Also wanted to try creating something largely blue and pink. This is what resulted.

Not quite sure I did justice to my representation of the man.

Sketchwalk: Cityhall

Sketchwalk Cityhall
Spent a great Saturday morning at Cityhall and the old Supreme Court with the Sketchwalkers. We had a history expert share intriguing nuggets along the way. The architectural detail and history there are wonderful.

I drew exclusively with my (economical) fountain pen. The works of the others, especially with watercolour, were very impressive.

The grey tones for this was added digitally.

One of the sketchwalkers, Parka, took some cool photos.

And I love this closing shot by Carol.

Void deck - a quintessentially Singaporean phrase and concept. This wonderful docu by Brownian Motions, a team of young Singaporeans, captures the life and community around the void deck so poignantly. Filling in the void indeed.
