At the Studio

    Whew! It's been a whirlwind of events after events each day since getting back from Russia. Thankfully safely. The timing was just too close for comfort. My condolences goes out the all the families of the 298 passengers of MH 17 who were directly involved in the mid air tragedy over Ukraine on 18th July,and just a day,right before my Birthday too! Makes it all the more poignant and important for me to appreciate and celebrate not just my birth date,but life as a whole.  And am very very thankful indeed that all of my family and friends have rallied together to make this birthday a very very loving and exceptionally special one this year for me. Celebrated what's possibly my last birthday together with my twin before she's finally green-litted to go and join her husband in NY. She'll prob be staying there for a good many years to work on her PR qualifications so there's no chance of her coming back to M'sia,unless we go visit her in NY. I know I'm gonna be grounding myself for a while for now.
    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 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.
In other news, the animator voice in me has been begging to come out. So I must obey. Just a desperate attempt to animate,even thought I only have photoshop to use at the moment.
And rough attempts to try and churn out an art request for my League Summoner friend,Benjamin R aka Alphalion. He's requested for a fan art of his fave character,Lux. So here's my take on her,with a touch of Masai Warrior'esque flair. I wanted to experiment in grey shades but have decided that as part of the Masai Tribe,it really needed a red dress. But I was already quite content with the greys on her dress,so have decided to give a spalsh of red in the backdrop. Hope you guys like the rough result.

And finally, let's end with some kitten news. Well to make a long story short, I've rescued a wee lil' kitten about 2 months ago. Found it at the carpark basement in my apmt block,seeking shelter from the rain. It was clearly hunger so I fed it my leftover butterscotch bread which it readily wolfed down. Finding it very approachable and amiable,I've decided to take it home with me and find it a good home. But back at my bedroom (sheltering from the wrath of Kameko),I've discovered that it has had a fishing line embedded near its paw. Taking it to the vet the next day soon sort it out a.o.k. I've decided to call it Tyrion there and then,it being a lil imp with all the charm in the world. I did eventually manage to find it a home with my colleague. But unfortunately he had to give it up after almost a month due to his daughter suffering from symptoms of asthma. Taking it home a few days later, I was very fortunate and blessed enought to be able to find it another home ,thanks to the awesome help of family and friends,particularly Sumeitra,who got the wheels turning to hook me up with a newly settled couple who was looking to adopt a kitten. Upon seeing Tyrion's pics,they've decided to adopt her and last Saturday,Elsie ,the new owner,came and took her home.

No one was happier than the reigning queen,Kameko. Till now she is singing "Sweet,sweet Victory!~"

Good Night and Sleep Tight,folks! Cheers!

Busy Busy bee

     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 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 are some pics from my outings. Should bring my cam out more..dunno what I'll catch.

 A very young J.W. at his 20s as a backdrop,as he tells us about the show and what his job entails as the adventure goes on.

 Jeremy checking out a scn of his getting sucked by a lamprey.
 Mr. Wade showcasing his Thos's Hammer  of Fishing Rods and testing its endurance for BIG catches.

 A nice selfie as requested by JW for the crowd that didnt get a chance to get up on stage to get personal selfies and one on one chat with him. And in other news below, Mr. Nick Vujicic was in da house to really wrap things up with a bang for the Annual Achievers Congress at the MINES.
 He is definitely one truly amazing individual and a real inspiration for all. It's been a good conference overall,to the speakers I've had the chance to sit through. Mr .JT Foxx,Mr Brandon Burchard,Mr. Gerry Robert...all have been good and insightful to the challenges and achievements they've made.
Makes me look at myself and recall a lot of things I want to get done,to the people I've promised to work on projects together and so forth and haven't been able to get it off the ground. I hope I won't have to continue making excuses for them and keep on trudging no matter how crazy things can get. It's up to me to make it happen. Let's see how things play along the way. Cheers for now ,folks!

League Mascot

A quickie favor I did for League Summoner Bojangletail aka Shawn Kulas who wanted a mascot that will represent his callsign well. Since I do recall that he did play Champion Wukong well,I've opted to draw a 'bojangle-tail' type of monkey and opted for the Grey Langur. Hope you all dig it! Cheers!

Happy Birthday Mr Brent Spiner!!!

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.'s what else I've been busy trying to get creative with again.

 I seem to have a thing for paisley.
 Drawing Mr J is a given. I never get tired of drawing him.
 I quickie farce of a scene that's been discuss with my bro Eric and his pal,Matt Dulemba, while we were collaborating creatively over a new comic project. Yes, I seriously want to be the Ewok. Everyone else can don the cliche'.

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!
