Let your imagination run wild and free.
Give yourself the space you need.
Set you mind free.

Today’s a double Valentine’s day! In the Lunar Calendar, it’s the 15th day of Chinese New Year, also known as the “Chap Goh Meh”, which is also the Chinese’s Valentine’s Day. This year, it falls on the 14th February, which is also a Valentine’s Day! How awesome is that! It happens only once every 19 years. Wow.
So, to all the singles and those who are in a relationship out there, note to yourself that everyone deserves to be loved everyday! Share your love and joy with the ones you love, not only your friends but also your family!
Here’s a little something to celebrate this Valentine’s Day!
I’ve been browsing through Pinterest for some illustration inspirations. I’ve opened up one link after another in so many tabs! So many that I can’t even read a word on the tab. Despite that, I browsed through all the opened tabs one by one. There are so many, countless inspirations out there! I’ve found so many amazing and breathtaking works. One of them that caught my attention is Hayden Williams. He’s a 22-year old British fashion illustrator & designer. According to his bio, he’s been drawing since the age of 3. There are so many posts on his blog site, from 2010 till this day. All his works are brilliantly illustrated.
Here are some of his works. There are too many to share here, do visit his blog at Hayden Williams Fashion Illustrations. You’ll fall in love with his works, that I guarantee.
Just a normal rainy day again here in Birmingham and once again stuck at home. Decided to draw something for fun, or maybe a possible tattoo in the future? 😛 Octopus is one of my favorite sea creatures! They just amaze me in some ways. So as I transferred my sketch into Photoshop, playing with different colors. It’s not easy to find the right colors that goes along together well. I’ve had a few different tries and here’s the final outcome. I’m quite satisfied with it. What do you think?
Thanks for viewing!
Breathtaking photography images!
Check out photographer Bruce Bischoff. I really love this series because it’s just so cool to see experiments in familiar media. The series was done with long exposure time and a series of colourful choreographed movements. The light and colour in these are amazing.

A series of posters which my friend did for one of our subject tasks back in Malaysia, Corporate Identity.
They look interesting!
Back in Malaysia where I’ve attended my diploma course, one of my Corporate Identity’s briefs was to design a series of posters that portray the SIngle Minded Proposition (SMP),in which my case, it’s “Embracing Conversation”. The main purpose is to celebrate the 50 Years of Diplomatic Relationship between Malaysia and Switzerland. Using the speech bubble as my main graphic element, below are a series of posters that I’ve designed.
Today’s just an ordinary day, rainy and windy as usual. Which kinda made me a little down and moody. As soon as I got back from lecture, I went surfing on the internet. Browsing through designers’ blogs, hoping to find something interesting to enlighten myself.
Just when I was getting tired, my eyes and brain were about to shut on me, I stumbled upon this brilliant young creative! Her works literally made my jaw drop and it was left there hanging wide open through out the time I was browsing through her website. What’s even more amazing is that she’s only at the age of 20! Clearly anyone can be really good and creative at any age. It’s all about inspiration and self-motivation. We’ve gotta push ourselves to keep learning and moving forward in order to succeed in life.
By the way, this brilliant creative/artist/designer is Risa Rodil. From her site, you’ll be able to enjoy the brilliant works that she’s done. Amazing! One of my favorites is her recent work on a series of Disney’s “Frozen” typography poster. Memorable quotes from the animation were picked and designed creatively with beautiful colors.
Below is the series of posters that are my personal favorites. Do enjoy!
An inspiring and moving video about Harry Shum Jr. This piece of art is choreographed by Harry himself, in collaboration with Buzzfeed videos (http://www.youtube.com/buzzfeed)
This dance video, creatively choreographed and used colour splashes as an expression is brilliant. Although there are also some other videos maybe similar to this out there, this truly captured my attention. The story of Harry’s life was brilliantly expressed through his dance.
Art can be in any form, be it air, dust or an object, just twist a little or mix it up a little creatively, an amazing piece will be created. For every piece of art has a story behind.
It was Lunar Year that week, and our 2nd trip to the City of London. The weather was freezing cold, and the wind made it worst! Me and my friends were walking around Westminster and River of Thames, enjoying the beautiful night sceneries. Our plan was to have a night stroll in the city and head back to our accommodation after that, until one of us wanted to go to the loo.
As we are not familiar with the place in London, we went hunting for washrooms! We searched up and down but there wasn’t any. Just when we were about to give up, all of a sudden we saw this building with bright lights shinning from inside. Without hesitation we went in for the loo.
After the relieve, while I was waiting around for my friends, I stumbled upon a shelf full of colourful brochures and flyers. The images shown are the ones that really caught my attention. From the choices of papers used for printing, to the choices of colours!
^ a series of brochures of Philharmonic Orchestra.
^ the strong graphics and visual on this cover of brochure, and the contrast of the colours used, caught my attention.
^ this is one really nicely designed feedback card.
“The first step to solve a problem,
is to know the existence of a problem.”
I was browsing through the internet the other day and came across this quote which I find it very true.
I’ve heard it many times from some where else but every single time I hear it, it gives me some sort of “wake up call”.
I know what I want but how I’m going to achieve what I want is to know what’s holding me back.
I’ll find ways to get myself moving forward once again.
