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.

Set 1: Day 1 and 2



Set 2 : Day 3 & 4



Set 3 : Day 5 & 6



Set 4 : Day 7 & 8



Set 5 : Day 9 & 10



Set 6 : Day 11 & 12



Set 7 : 13 & 14



Set 8 : Day 15 & 16



Set 9 : Day 17 & 18



Set 10 : Day 19 & 20



Set 11 : Day 21 & 22



Set 12 : Day 23 & 24



Set 13 : Day 25 & 26



Set 14 : Day 27 & 28



Set 15 : Day 29 & 30



Day 31, which is also the last day and last piece of INKTOBER and since it is the last one, I did it for my wife instead of the children.


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.


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.


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.
