There comes a time in every girl’s life when she obsesses over a cartoon character so much, that she decides to Do Something about it.

I think mine was today when I turned my thumbdrive into a domokun…

The original thumbdrive


Domokun is the mascot of Japan’s NHK television station. My love for Domo has nothing to do with the fact that NHK are also my initials (:

I had this plan in mind for a few days. I conceived it during Chemistry lesson while talking to Leny [Who of course advised me against it]

The medium is Nail Varnish on Acrylic paint on Musking Tape on Thumbdrive. I didn’t paint directly onto the thumbdrive because I suspect that a few years down the road, I will think this is very childish.

Coursework was due today! A year’s worth of nightmares finally gone away! Here are small bits of my canvas [taken with Anning’s camera] :

More importantly, here is the dip pen that saw me through the process of making my final work.

Paper Butterfly II
September 10, 2008

In January, I posted pictures of my large paper butterfly. Here are another two paper cut butterflies I did as well:

They are not as detailed. Quite ugly in fact. Here’s the old papercut for comparison:

Lizard and bones
September 2, 2008

Here are two drawings done a while back. Medium is 2B pencil on drawing block : (Wait a while for image to load)

Rib cage! With the pelvic bone attached. It was pretty rushed. And it is slanted in a very wrong way.

Lizard eating a praying mantid… The scales on the lizard’s body drove me absolutely crazy!

[EDIT: I added an ugly water mark to my ribcage drawing because it’s been used too many times without my permission. If you so require the original file please contact me directly thanks ;) ]

Birthday card
August 27, 2008

It was my teammate’s birthday yesterday, and will be another one’s tomorrow! Happy 16th to both (:

I made them a card each, with the lines of a netball carved into it.


And yes I know, my cards are very predictable.

Today is a doodly day. Here are all the doodles I have been doing. Be prepared to be overwhelmed!!! [Medium is pen on paper / indian ink on canvas]

Rough ones to keep myself from falling asleep during lectures/lessons:

Ones done for the sake of coursework:


(this is actually my blog header)

Ones from my canvas:

Sorry for the awful quality.

I hardly ever draw people because I am really really really bad at it. Here is Abraham Lincoln and Mother Teresa. I know! She’s slightly cross-eyed!!! ):

[EDIT] OK to clarify, my mommy helped me with this (: I did most of the shading and the basic shapes while she helped me with overall proportions.

Project Love
July 31, 2008

My sister’s friends organised a CIP project to Neijiang city, located in Sichuan. The entire thing was called Project Love. Here are the designs I did for the front and back of their shirt:

The back of the shirt shows the map of China. The placement of the heart is also roughly indicative of where Neijiang is located.

The map and the Chinese character were drawn out by hand, scanned into the computer and subsequently edited using photoshop.

Some photos from Beijing trip:

Astronomical observatory. This place didn’t change much. Even the frog dustbins were still there.

798 Art District. I like this painting a lot! Superman saves the day in a 山水画!

Forbidden City

Tiananmen Square

Nice grass = happy JingYing

Here’s the Petronas Towers in KL, Malaysia:

Haha a few years ago, my sister and cousins got trapped in the skybridge (for about an hour?)!

Old pages

Favourite doodles from my diary!

These butterflies were copied off Leny’s old waterbottle. I think the trail of dots behind the butterflies are quite disgusting.  By the way, Leny has lost the bottle ):

What was supposed to be a chrysanthemum flower became a bundle of worms.

Two big nosed men. Totally copied from seacreative. This artist left a HUGE impression on me and I still like his style because it’s so unique.

Weird robot doodle. I got the idea from Alex Noriega I think.

And lastly, the big house from the cartoon show: Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. That show is the coolest and funniest cartoon EVER! (:
