Exciting news for the end of August!
Three of my illustrations were selected to be featured in the NOISE Festival Exhibition & Showcase this year! I’ve already shared these pieces with you guys before, but it’s nice to see it printed and put up on display beside other wonderful pieces of art.
The NOISE Festival Exhibition will be held from the 27th of Aug to 14th of Sept at ION Orchard, basement 4 (ION Station – Event Hall, near Muji).
Do check it out if you’re passing by, or if you have the time. There are alot of other cool art works to see. And while you are there, you can also pick up a Noise Festival Showcase Booklet, where you can take home a booklet filled with really nice art pieces. The booklet looks like this:
And of course, on the inside, you can find my artwork and other really nice pieces of works. From line drawings to fully painted pieces, to wonderful photographs!
Well, that’s it for me for now! In the coming months, I’ll be sharing more illustrations and drawing. Also, if you haven’t checked out my weekly webcomic of random everyday things, do so at www.gor-mon.com!
Also a big thanks to my subscribers who have been following me since the beginning. I appreciate all your support and see you in Sept!

I started a new webcomic with my cousin, and you can read it here:
It’s about a couple of really cute apes, and these comics are really fun for me to work on.
Share it with your friends!

New illustration for June! This illustration is for an exhibition in July, and the theme for the exhibition is “A character from your childhood”. I used to watch alot of Batman TV starring Adam West and so, this is my submission. The original will be for sale during the exhibition, however you can still get a print of this if you’d like from my society 6 shop. The bulk of the cost is in the printing… I earn a whooping $2 bucks if you buy my work! LOL :p
Some process work –

There are alot of things happening in May and not alot of time to blog, so this will be quick!
Last Saturday, I took part in Project Made Real with the Band of Doodlers. Project Made Real is a social service community that aims to provide social support for those who have a destructive self- and body-image. Their goal is to cultivate healthy, more active lifestyles that will in turn promote a positive self- and body-image for young adults in Singapore.
On the 24thh & 25th of May, the Band of Doodlers were engaged to draw caricatures of people who stopped by the Project Made Real booth. Here are some of the caricatures I made, and also some photos of the event.

In the meantime, I got myself a new sketchbook. But I think I grabbed the wrong one because after I opened the plastic wrapping, I found that the paper is thin, like notebook paper and it has grids. But that’s ok, so far I’m quite liking the grids and I’ll be trying markers and paint on it, just to see if the paper holds.
This is a sketch of a temple I walked past yesterday.

For my birthday last year, my boyfriend got me a book – a wonderful book filled with beautiful photographs titled The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn.
Each picture is so delicious and filled with so much story and history. I flipped open the book the other day and randomly selected this picture to sketch from. I tried to keep the sketches loose and after a while, I started turning them into the cartoony, animated style that I’m becoming more and more familiar with.
And oh yea, there is a random sketch of a king and queen from my head.

Hey, do you play Clash of Clans?
Well, I do and I have a clan named “The Greycloaks!” And here’s an image of what a barbarian will look like if he were a Greycloak and wore it to war!!
I just painted the cloak over an official clash of clan image of a barbarian.
Anyway, if you play the game, consider joining “The Greycloaks!”

We did a great exercise in Dan Holland’s character design class. Pick some portraits and try to capture their personalities instead of capturing what they actually look like. I used markers to draw them so I couldn’t erase, which made me worry less about making mistakes, and just concentrate on drawing for fun. It’s really interesting to see different shapes can be used to draw the same character.
Anyway, I really like how these turned out but the credit goes to also had some great references. After that, I took the character sketches that I liked into photoshop and cleaned them up.
Here’s an example of the initial sketches to final photoshop product.
