It’s Party Time!

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a blessed 2012 ahead. This year Shermayne and Xavier are also inviting their friends to our house for a mini X’mas party. So as usual, I will have to do the invitation card for them. Before I even started doing this invitation, Shermayne has already done hers and she showed it to me and said she wants her ‘invitation card’ to ‘appear’ in my illustration, just like last year. I’m so happy to know that she actually enjoy doing the artwork with me:)

Season's Greetings

Below is a close-up on Shermayne’s ‘invitation card’.

Plant and Flower illustrations Part 1.

Did some plant and flower illustrations for Singapore Zoo few months back. Plant and flowers are usually not my drawing or painting subject as I’m more of a comic/cartoon guy, and I did not expect this project can be so challenging. Especially when it is for educational purposes and need to be done as close and as details to the actual species of plant. However, after I started drawing the first few, I began to enjoy it.:)
