IT’S BEEN 5 MONTHS! I did almost 20 quick caricatures for Library@Chinatown ( National Library Board Singapore) in March, here are some of the ones i had fun doing. I think it’s not a bad attempt for a first timer. hahaha 😀

Till next time! (I.need.better.blogging.and.drawing.habits.)

late last night, while struggling through a long sequence of butterfly flying animation, I received an email telling me that my 1st Year installation work just got featured on art served, a behance curated site.

This, of course, brought back delightful memories. I am also amazed at how much my art working and I have been transformed in the recent 4 years. It’s quite a ride, I have to say. And clearly, I have much to venture and learn.


For now, I sincerely hope that everything will fold nicely in place at the end of July and I can’t wait for new adventures in August!

So many new ideas in my head waiting to be put down on paper properly and sculpted into shapes!

Had a week of film analysis and storyboarding class with Hans. Here are 2 pages of storyboard analysis i did for a short sequence in Girl With Pearl Earring.

I did some character design sketches as well. Probably upload them later after i have clean them up.

Good night!

Greetings friends! I realised that I have been MISSING IN ACTION for quite a while, so here’s a quick update from me.

i finally “finished” up the second test shot for Drift, the sand animation that I am working on in Ishu Patel’s class. so here it is.

if you noticed, there are images of parts of a plastic spoon jumping around at the side of 3 of the frames. It’s a careless mistake on my part and i only realised it after i uploaded the video. i will remove them on photoshop next time.

I think I am getting better with the sand. Will be doing a 3rd shot after the coming 2 weeks.

On a happier note, as some of you might already know, I have been accepted into the Gobelins Summer School 2011 earlier this month and I have just confirmed my placement. So I am going to Paris in July!!! 😀 😀 😀 But my knowledge of the place is very limited, looking at the map of Paris on google earth isn’t helping much. my major issue is : CAN I SURVIVE IN PARIS WITHOUT KNOWING FRENCH? haha. beside this worry, I am realllllyyy excited about the trip. Anyone going too? drop me a comment or something 😀

I promise to scan my drawings and post them next time and make it a habit.

see ya~
