Ok,it's been like forever since I've posted any new art over here. I haven't been negligent of my craft. Just been thoroughly busy helping to oversee and run the production of our animated series and then some. Took on giving some private tutorials now ...and have recently been confirmed to participate in evaluating a new art program for a University. And henceforth mid of last month,have been undertaking sole responsibility of taking care of my elderly mother. No mean feat! Well I shall definitely try to post up more often this year...try to note and document down the happenings of my current life flying solo being responsible for home for the first time. It is daunting,...challenging....but I welcome it. Ganbatte,right? Well without further ado....

I'll definitely want to share all of the photos I've taken while in Russia,as well as my Febuary trip to Borneo to celebrate my friend and colleague's wedding by the beach in her hometown in Kudat. Also made a quick trip back to my own home town in Penang Island up north..so yea,tons and tons of photos to go through and share everywhere.
It's been a nonstop chugging of daily work and requirements each week since coming back home and my body's been trying to cope with the onslaught. Not to mention I've now started taking on a bit of private art tuition for a friend's twin girls at their home over the weekend. They're showing great promise at such a young age so I'm all for passionate students with bright futures in the art industry.
Will def try to update when I can. Meantime, here's a lil sketchie of what happened at the studio today. I was venting my disappointment and frust at my colleague,Joe,with a rambutan just after lunch. Fun was had by all. Life's good innit?

Hi hi, here's what's been happening to me lately. Been crazy busy trying to wrap up production on a series at work whilst at the same time been assigned to churn out dev art for another title I've been pitching. So aside from being swamped with work,have also been trying to make good my promises to visit and spend time with friends and family. Which brings to the reason for 2 upcoming trips this month. One happening this Wednesday. Going up north to Penang Island for a couple of days to hand out with my relatives and friends before getting back to a bit of work,...trying to feverishly wrap up what I can before my big blow out holiday with my pals, Mickey and Ksoosh,to their hometown in Omsk,Russia. Have been promising Ksoosh's parents I'd visit one day. So yea,am making good my promises.
Good Night and Sleep Tight,folks! Cheers!

Well I'm still alive. Been really busy focusing on the job. Have now been helping to oversee production and script editing. As well as going for recordings,churning out art for both the studio and if there's any energy left,try to churn art out for friends/self,pick out on my puppeteering classes and trying to learn a new language on the side. Will need to see about taking up music lessons professionally if I want to be able to show any solid results of it. I told my friend recently I think it's a mid-life crisis I'm going through. Taking on too many things,wanting to take them on,more than I can handle. I do make time for a social life now,allocating time for shopping or outings with friends,eating,gaming etc....as well as hitting out my subjects of interests if they happen to be within reach. Like yesterday's stake out for Jeremy Wade at Sunway Pyramid as Discovery's River Monsters is doing a promo for his new season show,and the 3 day National Achievers 2014 Congress at the Mines Exhibition Centre. It's all been awesome. Great folks and speakers,and even managed to make time to rush back home to have a pre-celebration of one of many birthday celebration for mum's 70th. Needless to say,the past 2 weeks,my bdosy has been yelling for time out. I'll give it some real time out soon. Cos among the things I've been hustling,is to also get my Russian visa ready for next month's escapade with my Russian pals back to their home town. I can hardly wait! But enough rambling...here are some pics from my outings. Should bring my cam out more..dunno what I'll catch.

First and foremost! A grand Happy Brithday wish to Lt Comm Data!!! Was so awesome to be able to meet and greet with a whole bunch of awesome talents and folks that day at SDCC 2010 alongside my long time friend and bro,Eric Searles. I really should see about uploading my pic library regularly,especially in my Flickr site which has sorely been neglected. Anyhoo....here's what else I've been busy trying to get creative with again.
And finally,where I was yesterday evening thanks to my twinnie having a spare ticket to Japan's Beat Bumper troupe for a one night performance this CNY hols. Brill brill brill! Thank you sis! Had a grand time hanging out with your pals too,Gabriel & Shahnim.
Nice way to keep my mind off my flu recovery during this festive season.
Cheers and have a wonderful productive week ahead everyone!

Panel 01/top left : Experiencing Air Asia Flight regularities at Tawau Airport in Sabah,heading home back to KL. Lewat (in Malays) means Delay. Panel 02 : Peter did not know how to shower Village/Kampung style. Panel 03 : I shared a bed with my pal,Viv, on the left side of the room while Pete,unfortunately,had to share a bed with our taxi driver on the right side. We were both snoring so hard ,it vibrated our friend's entire farm house in Cambodia. Poor Viv couldn't sleep a wink while Pete is cringing and shivering from the progressively chilly air at night. First time I got to sleep with mosquito netting too! It's been an awesome holiday overall.
Happy New Year,Folks!

Have been MIA for a good deal of November and December basically because have been away for the annual Company Trip to Bali this time around where we dug deep at Kuta Beach going through the Company Dinner and Team Building event before we're let loose around Bali. Here's a tiny snippet of where I've been and what I've experienced. I should really see about uploading all of my stuff into Flickr to share with whoever is interested in checking out my whereabouts. But mostly,if we know each other and add links to FB,you can basically go through all of my folders and check out all of the pics I've been sharing through the years. I wish I can afford membership to Flickr which allows the subscriber to share all of their pics from beginning to current without any limitations to the amount that can be shared. But till I can earn a bit more, this is what I have to cope with.
It's been a momentous and learning curve year for me. Thing are finally looking a lot brighter to say the least,but that doesn't mean that the year hasn't had it's struggles and heart aches. I've been very blessed and fortunate enough to be working with an awesome creative team in a supportive studio environment and it's nice that the pace never stops and we just find the enthusiasm and strength to just carry on each day with whatever life throws at you.
My trip wouldn't be complete without the coaxing of my colleague and good friend,Meng Yee,to take up surf lessons...and enjoying a swim and relaxing evening at the beach to watch the sunset on a deck chair with a refreshing fresh coconut handy. I will see about sharing some of my other trips with my good friend ,Pete, to Cambodia and around Borneo when I can get to it. Am still busily getting all of the pics together to share online. It's a ton of work in itself.
In other news, we've just wrapped up Christmas celebration 2013 with an impromptu invasion of the MnU gang to the apartment along with friendly faces from Mother Russia, my good pals, Mickey & Ksoosh. My twin came through for us with 2 turkeys beautifully roasted thanks to the helping hands from her friend and colleague,Alex. While I round it up with a new pasta recipe,potatoes,broccoli & cauliflower,sausages,salad and what not. Mum (not surprising) had gone out and got us roast duck as a side dish. She could never resist a good duck. The guys handled the drinks while Mickey & Ksoosh surprised us all with a lovely green tea cake. Next party stop...Russian style New Year Celebration at Mickey & Ksoosh's place! Can't wait!
I finally got to complete a special art gift request for my friend,Bob,but have also dedicated this piece to William Blake for obvious reasons. Hope you like it!
And finally,here's something Bob shared to me recently. What an awesome way to get the public to be aware of fine art once again!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014 to everyone! Here's to a solid and prolific year ahead in spite of terrible rumours of inflation and rising costs and absurd new govt rulings...here's to hoping for a better future with better days. *click*

Wanted to kick start today by introducing to my fellow team mates Orson Welle's War of the Worlds live radio broadcast back in 1938.
75 years ago,today, Orson Welles broadcast live on radio a series of Alien Invasion coverage that to many of his listeners,seemed so startlingly real, it brought about widespread panic and fear. Let's re-live that special moment in history today and was prob one of the vehicles that propelled the sci-fi movement & intrigue into a branch culture long after HG Wells did.
Wallie dropped me another nice surprise package today. Another issue of P@per # 23 vol 1 with my lil strip contributed innit. WOO! Today is a gonna be a long but good day!
