KBCC August Edition

What are these?
What are these? They were found outside Pauseability today and gained quite a few curious stares. Resemble those trays of herbs found outside Chinese medical halls don't they?

KBCC August edition
Those were paper pulp drying. All part of this month's KBCC at which we made paper and our own journals. It was loads of fun.

KBCC August edition
Thanks Ee Wei!

IF - Routine

Made 2 drawings for this week's Illustration Friday's topic - Routine.

This is such a routine, we could do it with our eyes closed.

Despite the constant practice, her nightmare was forgetting the routine when everyone's looking.

I prefer the toothbrushing one though. Which do you like better?

Sunflower Surprise

It was wonderful to be given a lovely bunch of sunflowers recently.
Sunflower Surprise

Here are a few nice sunflower clips. Watch how sunflowers grow and glow in the sun.

And enjoying seeing this amazing painting come alive.

Update 23 Aug 11 pm:
Someone commented that I should draw those sunflowers and so I did, but drew only one.

AoP 09 - Close to You

ATC on Parade has come to a close. When the idea was first mooted, we did not imagine that the participation would be as wonderful and warm. Everyone brought out their creative best and we had a smart and successful parade!

Great Singapore Swap
The cards from the Great Singapore Swap has been distributed and will be sent out soon. It has been especially heartwarming that our friends from overseas has each taken up the challenge of finding out more about our tiny island nation in order to create their beautiful ATCs.

ATCs from Everywhere
Hopefully, with this effort, we will see more people try out ATC.

And at our next live trade session in September, we have decided to try a theme-trade on top of the usual trading. The theme will be "9ine". Crank up the creative juices, enjoy your artful expression and make a date to join us on 11 Sep.

Cake Wrecks

These cake wrecks made me I laugh so much that tears rolled down my cheeks.

Make Over

It is as fascinating as it might be scary what they can do with technology.

And if you want to create your own portrait Manga style, try Face Your Manga. Fun and easy.
Here's how I wish I look. Haha!

Wise as an Owl

This was super cute animation was created by teacher Tony Dusko.

And if you are a movie buff and have a keen eye for fonts, try guessing these movies from just one letter.

IF - Sail

For Illustration Friday's theme - sail.
Appreciate your comments.

Vote my Woot

My 2nd attempt at a Shirt.Woot derby. Theme for these few days: Black and White.

Their daily special T-shirt go for only US$10! Too bad they don't ship to Singapore and so I can't purchase and thus I can't vote either. But if you can vote, please kindly give me some support.

AoP 06 - The More We Get Together

At our simple and informal ATC on Parade opening evening, all of us had a great time catching up, laughing and picking up inspirations over chips, dips, brownies and curry puffs.

AoP 05 - Commencing

At last, ATC on Parade starts! We were listed in the newspaper today.
Listed in Straits Times
And our first visitors was a team of student reporters from Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Young Reporters
The Singapore swap is getting more interesting and cards from Australia and Italy are our newest additions.

Make a quality Singapore theme card, drop it off at Pauseability before the end of the exhibition and you could be the proud owner of one of these fab cards.


Via swissmiss

As a child, we use to sing a rhyme that goes "A-B-C, kiam chye char loti." The second half, in Hokkien, and is almost senseless as it says "to stir-fry (char) bread (loti) with salted vegetable (kiam chye)". I do wonder who invented this little ditty, and whether there were other variations.

AoP 04 - Countingdown

Just a day to go and everyone was bringing in their artist trading cards. Wonderful creations and collections for the parade.
It was fun selecting the cards, laying them out and putting on the final touches.
Until tonight, none of us knew exactly how it would all look like together. It is quite a delight by the end of the evening just to see how all the pieces fit and the burst of colours and creativity before us. Here's a glimpse of a part of it.
If you are nearby, do delight us with your presence at ATC on Parade from 7 to 18 August at Pauseability.

See To Believe?

This painting was done by a man born without eyes. Is that possible? Enjoy Esref Armagan's work here.

See him in action in this video.

Music to the Eye

For someone like me who cannot play any music, this visual representation of Bach is simply fascinating. Love that little portion where the notes move very quickly up and down in a squiggle.
