IF-Equipment



Who said that a bag can't be a hat! It's not just merely a bag or an equipment but an accessory add colours to the shot. What a breakthrough from the the tradition! It's a fabulous fashion statement at that time. It had stolen many girls' heart which including me...

On the other hand,  I super love drawing and painting portriat but now I rather shift my focus to other areas. Or else you see me happily painting just all portraits........no other works will be shown here. That's will be quite boring! However, I would love to pick up this long lost love when I finish my other projects.

This is a watercolour painting I painted when I was in college. It's self taught since I was not studying graphic design. I found this interesting close up of a young model from a fashion column on the newspaper. So, I did a newspaper cutout and sticked it to my room. I liked her so much and decide to paint her.

I chose another painting direction that I had during that very moment. I trusted my instinct...
I introuded the colours that I think were suitable and appealing in this composition. As you now I like green. The green here is such a compliment to the red and light grey.....

I love the final soft effect I got here except the hidden left eye part should be free from that undecided accident stroke....

Talking about newspaper cut out. My friend introuduced me a to this super talented lady Vivian Toh that manage art bazaar. She also is a very young talented editor for a new local design magazine called CUT OUT. It's RM15 per copy and it's published quarterly.
 I have spoken to her on the phone and she's a very pleasant lady. Together she and her partner Jay Lim manage a new media company called tsubaki studio.
I would love to meet up with her to exchange art ideas in the near future. All the best to her current and future undertaking!
