For Taksu by Sandora
For Taksu
My late entry for my first Taksu Exhibition in KL. Was invited pretty late in the game so these were what I could drum up. Have to say the sound advice I got from my self-appointed  'Sensei' came in good stead with the outcome of the artworks. He said "You should never feel stressed over completing an art piece. You should always enjoy and do what feels natural and comes easy to you. Don't matter or fuss about the deadlines or creating something big/great. Just enjoy the moment of creating something special and what's really YOU". Well, I did just that, and I find I really do get more satisfaction and pride out of completing each of them. In fact,I would like to keep and hang them on my own walls if I could. I've always liked and enjoy sketched works. Owning them would be a plus. Because sketches are the essence and forms the foundations and ideas to all final art pieces. And with that understanding,that's what makes sketches more precious than the finished masterpiece.
Busy painting by Sandora
Busy painting
Thanks to Gav,Trina & Nini for this pic of me busy painting "Humans as Trees". I've actually missed our initial deadline and needed an extension in order to submit the remaining few. :( But thankfully everything came through in the end and the show went off without a hitch. Cheers!
Makan-Makan by Sandora
The most popular culture I can think of that we Malaysians are passionate about - Eating. And eating all of our favorite local dishes from Nasi Kandar, Dim Sum,Steamboat,Durian,Nasi Lemak,Wan Tan Mee etc. This painting was the very last one I submitted that was way overdue,at the very last hour that day before my curator called it a night when prepping for the show. And even then,I was still frantically painting the last few characters and inking in before finally framing it and handing it over. Ironically what turned out to be the last painting handed over,actually turned out to be the first sold,and before the exhibition even begun. Cheers folks!
Tyger by Sandora
My first completed painting on the topic of our local Malayan Tiger. And it was definitely a labor of love cos I've had to endure 2 weeks of stiff neck and pain while trying to finish my paintings. 
This painting is definitely inspired by William Blake and I've dedicated it to my dad and to Sir David Attenborough. Basically a simple idea highlighting the dwindling Tiger species in M'sia,shown in a forest of batek, engulfed in flames. SOLD.
Keh Poh Chi by Sandora
Keh Poh Chi
A Hokkien term/phrase we like to use to whoever's been a busybody or nosey parker.  This one's dedicated to my bro,Eric :gant12000: 
We see he's surrounded by a typical family,made to appear like dogs,sniffing all over him to get the day's scoop. Within the painting,I've also taken the opportunity to put in a lil dedication to my fave pets : Agassi,Truffles,Samson and Venus. The sole cat in the picture is my kitteh,Kameko Tsukiji,not appearing too amused being surrounded by dogs.

Oh wow,my last journal entry said almost the same thing! Just goes to show how dedicated I was to updating these sites o' mine. Well am late in saying this but Happy New Year 2015 to all you creative folks out there! 
Well this year looks set to be promising. Not only has my work begun to double and triple since last month leading up to the new year with several key animated projects lined up to be produced,but have also got the ball rolling for my private tutorials session. AND this year will mark my first ever official duty to moderate a new creative program for an Art School. This year too begins my solo journey and responsibility in looking after my frail and aging mother. Tis going to be a very busy year indeed. Will definitely be challenging and no mean feat what with the growing demands at work and still trying to juggle my personal studies in honing in my craft as well as language, cooking, history, geography and what not...we shall see how this year fares,shall we? Will also try to allocate time for personal comic and graphic novel work. Going to be an interesting year ahead.

Meantime,hope you folks are enjoying my recent inundation of sketches to kick start this year with a bang. And hopefully one where I can keep my work on trying to be more prolific in personal updates.
