Happy Birthday~~

Yes, let's also not forget that today is also a festive celebration for the birthday boy(?) himself, for without him, there would be no Christmas, no Santa Claus, no Jingle Bells, no reindeer and not to mention, no presents for all of us. For it is also on this day that he received 3 valuable gifts from the 3 wise men thousands of years ago. So let's not forget the true spirit of Christmas, which is giving than receiving, and ask, for you shall also receive. Amen :)

P.S. Happy Birthday J.C

"Picasso" Ivan?

I've noticed there's some mixed responses due to my new style of sketch...or should I say illustrations... Some likes it and some not so keen on it. If you're wondering whether have you seen the last of my old "Chibi" sketches, I can assure you that this is just some new extra component I added in to enhance my art, there won't be a "picasso" style Ivan.. I'll still be using my old caricature here and there most of the time.

Heck I wouldn't wanna look like this guy.

Lady In The Painting

One of my personal favorite, it was first named "The Mistress" but I think she's a bit too young to be called a mistress. Mainly inspired by Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride".

The Jester

This one is really random, it was a breezy afternoon in Starbucks and out of all things i suddenly feels the urge to draw a Jester. It's just an experiments with spirals in the drawing..lots and lots of spirals...

Amnesia

This one goes out to all my friend's that had this sort of experience.. Personally I never had amnesia, I usually encounter problems trying to stay awake most of the time, especially when I'm working..

"Broken"

I call this style "The Picasso", because it's inspired by Picasso's outrages out of proportionate style of drawings. This also happens to be a visualization of a certain stage in my life.

I've lost it...but I got something new

I can't draw like how I used to..i dunno why...
I have a pencil in my hand..but my heart is dry...

It seems like I lost my touch, I can no longer sketch like before..
Dunno if it's me or the things happening around me are interesting no more..

So I come up with a solution..forget the old, start it anew..
So there you have it, hope you like what I drew =)

Back? Not yet...

For those of you whose wondering, I'm fine, I'm not dead yet. Then again judging from the picture below, I probably will soon if this hectic situation still continues any further. Since the start of October I've been busy coping between my job, church work, freelance and my personal project(previous post). Sleepless nights, hectic datelines and so on, I don't even have time for my haircut! Look at how long it is now!

I'm not really complaining though, a busy life is better than no life. I just hope it will be over soon, so that I can enjoy my free time like I used to, that'll be my REAL comeback. Till then, take care. See you guys in November :)

My dog ate my sketch book...

Ok, that's a lame excuse, I don't own a dog.

Truth is I'm going to Genting later and I'll be away for 2 days, so there won't be any new sketches, at least not until I return from my trip.

See y'all soon, Casino here I come! XD

Hello again peeps!!

Hi guys, it's me again! I'm back!!! Can I have a welcome cheer?


Ok... ok... I know it's been 2 weeks since I posted any sketches, I hereby sincerely apologize for my absence.


To continue from my previous post, "A BAD HAIR DAY" I have once again pay a visit to the saloon. According to my colleague I looked like a "BOY" with that short trimmed hair style:

I'll take that as a compliment.


So where have I been you asked? Well I'm actually very busy for the past two weeks, in fact I've been living a very busy life for as long as I could remember.

Yup, busy busy busy...







In order for you guys to forgive my absence and to understand my situation, I did these following sketches to show you what kind of a life I have to go through every single day, it's also a good way to get to know a little bit more about me.

Every morning after waking up, I have to....








1) Brush my teeth...








2) Comb my hair
...








3) Change my cloth
...








4) Tie my shoe laces...








5) ...and go to work.












See? There's like...5 things already!!!
And I haven't even started with my working routine yet!

Trusting that all of you are good, understanding people I 'm sure now you'll understand why I can't update my blog that frequent. So next time if I goes on "hibernating" again I believe you'll all think of something like,

"awww... sketch boy must be very busy with his 'life'
again, hope his doing fine..."

Hee-hee ^^

Nestum War!

My cousin Aiden bought a tin of Nespray Nestum the few weeks ago, it was long time since all of us had a taste of Nestum since primary school so once we tried a taste of it we all get addicted to it for quite a while. It brings back chilhood memories just like MILO, haha...
