I was going to film a little vlog for you guys, but then I got the flu/laryngitis/pharyngitis.  I’ve lost my voice and I feel like ass.  As a peace offering, here’s a leedle sketch.  I’ve got lots of art to show you, and lots of cool things in general coming your way, so stay tuned. :)

A little late to the party.  Things have been a little rough on my end, but with the help of my ridiculous amazing (and good-looking) support network, I’m stayin’ optimistic.  
Sometimes it can be tough to stay positive amidst adversity, and sometimes the path seems unclear.  Slacking off is an easy option.  But the most important thing is that at the end of the day, you believe in what you can achieve, and you keep stepping forward with conviction.
Meet your fears head on and leap into 2013.

"Don’t worry about a style. It will creep up on you and eventually you will have to undo it in order to go further. Be like a river and accept everything."
A wonderful article: Gary Panter’s Drawing Tips (via the Drawn blog). Definitely worth a read for artists!

First go at watercolours. Not sure what I’m doing. The paper gets so crinkly. Where is the undo button?

Had some time to go to Life Drawing again!  Our model was the lovely Ali. Done using soft pastels.

Hmm, not sure if anyone is interested, but if you’d like to purchase the originals (they’re pretty big, about A2), then give me a buzz.

The art direction, animation and quality of this ad is awesome.  Clever marketing campaign.  It reminds me of Don Hertzfeldt’s work, as well as Happy Tree Friends and Friends.  The glue guy is my favourite.  Too bad Metro is unreliable as hell.

Just taking a break from commissions to make a little something for you guys.  The year is almost over, and I know that it’s been a tough one for many of you.  But know that no matter how difficult things are and may be in the future, you can do this.  You are stronger than you know.

Regarding Commissions

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that now that I have (finally) graduated, and have returned from my (long ass) hiatus, I will be completing the remaining Art for Japan commissions, and posting them online.

I apologise for the long wait many of you had to go through while I completed my degree and put my life back on track.  I am grateful for your patience and understanding.

Please note: I will not be taking any new commissions at this time.  I will announce it here (and on all my social networking sites) when I reopen for commissions.

Cheers!

boontog:

This is Viet-My (also known as Meezy, Pixie-Bitch, VM, Vee, or Ravenskar for the fanboys).
We acknowledge that we often give each other a hard time. She thinks I’m a loser, I think she’s loser. However, despite our bickering and often trivial disagreements, we always seem to see the funny side and have a laugh at the end of the day. I’m pretty lucky to have her in my life as both a close friend and inspiration.She happens to draw/paint pretty things, so you can check out her work at her website vm-bui.com (Don’t forget to follow.) 

This photo of me was taken by my good mate, Boon.  I’ve been pestering him about making a Tumblr for ages, and I’m so glad he’s finally given in!  He’s a kind and decent fellow, and is actually pretty good at this photography thing.  So check him out. ;)

Get Trucked Illustration // 20 September, 2009

I was looking through my archives and was surprised to find that I never posted this. This was for Just Another Agency's (then known as “696”) annual group exhibition, Get Trucked.  All profits from the event went to CanTeen.

It was one of my first traditional media projects, and I remember drawing a blank as to what to use.  I didn’t have any paints at home, so I went with the ol’ fineliner.

It was an extremely time-consuming process.  I was using pens with tiny nibs & I couldn’t get overzealous lest they bled through the fabric. I finished it in one looong 10-hour sitting in a café. (I ended up getting a free drinks for my efforts!)

It was so, so much fun doing something quite different, kind of typographical and illustrative.  I should do more of this kind of stuff.
