INKTOBER 2016.

This October is the first year that I took on the INKTOBER challenge. To produce 1 ink drawing per day for 31 days can be quite challenging especially with a day job to juggle. I’m glad I managed to accomplish this challenge and really enjoyed myself in the process.

Few years ago, I used to draw and write to both my children daily notes to give them some words of encouragement before they go to school. Soon I found it hard to keep up with my drawing and my daily notes became weekly notes and eventually stopped after about a year and half:(

Taking this INKTOBER challenge as an opportunity to build up my drawing cards so that I can eventually keep up to at least twice a week:)

As these drawing cards that I did are going to be in pair, so I did my INKTOBER challenge in a set of 2 drawings every 2 days instead of 1 per day.

Unity Ez Link Card illustration.

Did these 2 illustrations for the Unity Pharmacy for their Ez Link Card design earlier this year. They needed something that based on the theme of ‘Year of the Monkey’. I proposed 3 designs in total, they ended up taking 2 of my designs instead of just 1:)

How The Murray Was Created.

This batch of illustration was done in aboriginal art style and is about how the murray was created. An aboriginal myth.

Ngurunderi is a great ancestor of the Ngarrindjeri people. One day, he travelled down the Murray in search of his two wives who had run away. The Murray was then a small stream.

Murray-1(low-res)

A giant Murray cod was swimming ahead. Ngurunderi tried to spear it from his canoe but the fish swam away, widening the river with sweeps of its tail.

Murray-2(low-res)

At last, Ngurunderi speared the fish. He cut it into many pieces and threw them in the river. Each piece became a new species of fish.

Murray-3(low-res)
