Finally, it's done!

My very first stop motion short: Cereal! After three months of this on-going project, it's finally (I'm ever so glad to say this) finished! It wouldn't have taken this long to be done if it was not for my always busy and work crowded life (and yes, I admit that procrasination is one of the reason...shame me).

A little footage of my work environment.


Always messy, and always will be.



Mr. Tibble and Snoozle.

The fun part was the making of props. I mean, really, that was my favorite part; coming up with what could be adapt to make which. Also playing with oil clay took me back to my childhood when I loves to sit for hours poking and rolling away until my hands are oily and the clay turned grey.








 The final video itself was not that good of a quality. I'm still getting my hands on this thing call technology and by far I was not victorious. Can anyone tell me how to make a video that is not blurry? However, this is my best, for now. Next time it shall be better! I promise! But for now, please enjoy.

Lines oh lines

Going back to something simple. The basic, the fundamental element: lines. I forgot how much fun it is just to scribble! Now I remember why I started drawing.


Facts n' Tips (thankyou Epic Weird):
Picasso’s Full Name Has 23 Words
Picasso was baptized Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso. He was named after various saints and relatives. The “Picasso” is actually from his mother, Maria Picasso y Lopez. His father is named Jose Ruiz Blasco.

Discovery of the Day: When trying to draw a caricature, don't draw what you see but what you think you see. It's a way to capture the true personality and characteristic of the person you're drawing. And, asparagus is pain when stuck between teeth...just wanna throw that in.

Two Tone Home

Just a quicky post. Here's the finished, polished, whole piece of the work I posted previously. More than only the desire to draw something whimsy, surreal and floating (uh-ha, I wanted to draw gravity defying objects, really). The general idea is to display the difference between two kinds of home: the cozy and welcoming, and the luxuriously extravagant. Which would you prefer?


Discovery of the Day: Before drawing, warm up your hand by making random strokes and shapes on scrap paper. It helps to un-stiff your hand, thus, makes it easier to control when you do the actual drawing.

Back to business

Hi there, may an apology be accept?

So sorry, dearest blog, for having abandoned you for quite a period of time. Lately my life have been drowned in commotion, swimming in sea of turmoil. But now eveything is back to how it use to be. BIG SIGH OF RELIEF!

Many have occurred. Went to a food exhibition, met lots of people (some who speaks language I cannot comprehend), and hunted for free ice cream, one word, deeeelicious. Then at home I made an unappealing, yet scrumpcious, apple crumble. It's my very own recipe which I will post soon after more testing (finger cross that it will taste the same everytime I make it). And of course, not to forget, I have been busy producing more art works. Stop motion animation coming up and a mini comic about a crazy diner.

For now here are fragments of work I made a couple of weeks ago.

Also, to make this blog a little more educating and less a constant ramble about my life; I have decided to add two special section: "Facts n' Tips" and "Discovery of the Day".

Facts n' Tips will consist of facts about art, its history, important figures etc. And tips on various art techniques: drawing, painting, collages etc. I will sought these out from a reliable source, me promise not to post false jibberrish.

And Discovery of the Day will be my personal findings in art. My experiment on different stuff and so on.

With out further ado I shall start this newly added section.

Discovery of the Day: Mixing all colors used in a painting with one main color helps to harmonize the whole image...and mixing paint with a brush gives the same sensation as cooking. fuunnnn...
