My (not so..) 2019

My 2019. Hello, it’s been a very long while since my last update here. I was still contemplating whether I should post this here but maybe this is the only place I can put this long one.  The year 2019 wasn’t that kind to me. It made me experience things I hardly imagined. Actually, it … Continue reading My (not so..) 2019

Social Media for Illustrators (what I’ve learned so far)

A very informative post about social media for illustrators. 🙂

I’ve been putting my work all over the internet for years, and if you google my name and scroll down far enough, you’ll probably stumble across some embarrassing interesting pictures from websites and blogs I’ve had in the past featuring jewellery, teddy bears and fairies…. But just because I’ve been posting to promote myself for a long time, doesn’t mean I’ve always done it well (otherwise I’d be one of those Instagram superusers by now).

Patintero Comics Anniversary

Last month was the anniversary of my old comic title, Patintero Comics. Since August was a bit busy, I decided to do this just now. The title was released last 2010.   Here's some character revisiting. This time, keeping their personalities in mind in designing. 😊 Thank you for following last week's series!  

August Stream Theme: Backgrounds

I decided to come up with a theme for streaming last month - it was backgrounds. This is a way to practice doing backgrounds and also explore doing such things. I always draw cartoon characters and often times, you will come to a point that you're unintentionally neglecting doing backgrounds. So I thought, this may … Continue reading August Stream Theme: Backgrounds

Quick Update: Back To Streaming
