May sketchbook - Part 2




Vintage Eversharp Skyline


Trying out different kinds of line. Top one was a loose line. Bottom one had a more angular line. I like the stylised feel of the bottom one. Top one just looked messy.

Noodlers Ahab modified. I made this suit for Ollie's fabric man out of a toilet roll. She kept pulling the man out.



New dining table ceiling lamp installed at my in-laws. It looks futuristic.
Muji 0.7gel pen + photoshop. Practicing a more angular line.

Vintage Mabie Todd Swan. You have to insert the broom stick though the hole in the basket.

May sketchbook- part 1

I skipped scanning the May sketchbook. First few pages here. I started liking collage a bit more that month.

End May-June 2015 sketchbook - part 3

More pages from that sketchbook. Too busy to scan them all at once. And I lost track on which fountain pens I used for these. It could have been a Nakaya Long Cigar, G-nib and watercolours. Photoshop was used to get the flat colours.

EVERYWHERE I WENT, MY SKETCHBOOK WAS SURE TO GO


Yes, I still have copies available!

This is a book of sketches that I've been working on for far too long. Self-published, off-set printed on the best papers I could find and with flaps, this 64 page, slightly bigger than A5 size book contains some of my favourite black and white sketches created between 2008 and 2014. You will find drawings from my daily life in Singapore wherever I went because I always brought my sketchbook and pens with me. This isn't a book of popular scenes and famous locations around Singapore. But rather, they are scenes I see and experience while living here in Singapore. It's my exercise in seeing the beauty in ordinary everyday things.

Mural at the Ministry of Education Singapre

If you pass by the Ministry of Education at 1 North Buona Vista Drive, you will see this big new mural which was working on recently. It's an SG50 mural and it covers the different activities within the school system here. Drawn with brush and ink, then vectorised so it could be printed big. Yeah, the dots were manga screen tones!
