Spending the last of tonight doodling and staring at cactuses trying to find the right colours so it doesn't look like I'm painting………………..sea cucumbers? 😂
I've always preferred digital illustration to physical ones. I think I'm one of the rare ones that prefers doing with technology 😂
I'm perfectly ok with ebooks, and back in uni always purchased ebooks instead of physical ones if they were available. ✌️
I like the control I have over paintings/illustrations done digitally and I like how it's never a mess 😂 I tried watercolour for quite awhile but never got over the fact that my palette was ALWAYS messy from blending and that I always had to be at a desk to start drawing.
Currently I'm lying belly down on my bed, in my PJs and doodling on my laptop with my Wacom. 😚 The simple luxuries technology gifts to us.
I haven't done this in sooooo long. I think my last project was @undermyvan's birthday gift which was a embroidered patch I got custom made for her. 😂
And my solemnization invites where I drew Daniel and my wedding looks before it even happend 😂 really just go in blind and whack.
#chowdoesart #kidding #notart #justanyhow
Ok I got lazy and decided to just draw a phantom pot 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
Also, the fading is super weird for the pot but I'm too tired to edit it 😂
I also think my Wacom is failing on me 😭😭 These things are so expensive I feel like I lose a small limb when I repurchase. So far I've been buying secondhand sets cos they are wayyyy cheaper.
Also can't #taobao these things cos quality matters 😂
The patch I custom made for Van's birthday! HAHA omg also features cactuses. I think I really like those prickly things. 😂
I started out doing portrait illustrations cos I wanted to do something special for my friend's birthdays. It was always cards then it became stickers and patches ✌️
Quite fun la! I'm always pleasantly surprised when the portrait looks like the real person!
Hehe I also illustrated my lunch menu during the solemnization. It was fun!
I miss having the time to do such things. It was SUPER therapeutic 😅 I guess I know what I'll be doing next time when I retire ✌️
HAHAHAHA and our invites. Now looking back…I feel like I could have done better 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 #dayrebrides
But ok la. Not bad already (consoling myself) considering how I didn't know exactly what we were going to look like in our bridal outfits 😂✌️
When I said my mum raised me as a Chinese princess, I'm not kidding HAHA. All the art classes, music classes, laid foundation quite well so till today I find it easier to pick up artsy stuff like drawing and playing musical instruments.
I self learnt the guitar and used to do a bunch of covers on YouTube that I am now too embarrassed to share and I hope they never see the light of day 😂😂 Husband Ng used to purposely dig those out and play it on the huge TV to humiliate me 😥😥😥
Thanks for the encouraging comments guys 😚 Hehe so many good ideas floating in the comments section!
Definitely going to be working on patches @charlottewangwang I AM A PATCH LOVER I have a whole bag of them just lying around 😂
And now I really wanna join @tofulove's #100daywatercolour except that I don't watercolour so I am effectively a cheated 🙈🙈🙊🙊
Talking about artsy stuff, we had a half ass attempt at taking nicer photos for the new launch this weekend 😂
We were laughing like MAD cos I suck at doing this 😂 But don't worry k, better and more professional photos are coming your way. 😂
Just sharing some of the shots I thought turned out pretty well!
I think this is our first satin bralette ever? The cups on this thing is huge. I took M size and it's still slightly big on me 😂
I have this thing about satin that makes me super hesitant when getting them. If they are the cheap kind I feel very…annoyed 😂😂
Anyway! If you guys are free this Sunday, come down to the Books & Stuff flea initiated by @jojobeans to chit chat with me! 😚
I'll be bringing all the older designs down to the flea (think the Standard Halter Lace, Not-so-standard midi and some handmade design) down to sell so please come!
There will also be some cards and stickers I'll be selling 😂😂😂 so if you're free do come say hi k!!
Oh no, not sure what I'm allergic to (probably dust) but my eyes are swollen and puffy tonight 😭 excuses to sleep early!!!
