Tee shirt Designs for a friend. Ideas from everywhere around me.
This was drawn by me for National Museum’s kids event. By doing research of drawing this map wasn’t that easy as ABC as you can imagine. Everything got to be in details and identified. Drawing is about the Historical of Singapore and years back about the europeans and malays.
i believe kids would love to see this kinda Art as it is so interesting that widen their thinking creatively as well. This is something about cutting and paste on the map of where should each picture locating at.
introduced by one of schoolmate. His boss was looking for someone to design a ad featured himself and his upcoming new salon @ the new high end Mandarin Gallery.
his idea was easy and all he requested was a simple design in black and white as you can see below. And i noticed something that all his staffs were dressed in black only including him. I guessed there is a fashion statement behind all this “black attire” after all.
As for serious observation, realized his target audience were high ended people like rich taitais, Celebrities etc.
This advertisement was featured in Expat living Magazine.
School were enjoyable and boring with ups and down during those golden years. On one fine weekday, Our school notice board posted this short “attention” notice that Singapore Ballet Academy was looking for a student to design their ballet advertisement so as to feature in one of the international magazine as their ballet event holding in Singapore was drawing near. Everyone seem uninterested until then i grabbed tight of my chance after a few days of observations of the students’ unnoticeable actions around.
Seriously, the principal of SBA’s was kinds of fussy person. It wasn’t as easy as i can imagine as i got to widen my mind and climbed the horrible steps up the hill to reach the academy just to show them my artwork. Despite the hot and humid weather, I never failed to make them felt disappointed over my design.
Tell us more of this artwork please~!!!!
As I said before, It wasn’t easy until i did some research through internet, walking around the academy and enduring alone under the humid weather.
SBA’s definitely a Old yet renowned academy. A academy surrounded with historic feel , Classic and you wouldn’t thought of leaving away until you get a drink, relax, take some photos and enjoying the gust of wind under those shady trees.
While all this images start to appear in my mind again when creating out this design above, the black and white background indicates “Classic” but yet the ballerinas gave a modern kind of feel. Though it look real practical layout but …YESHHHH..SBA’s chosen this as the featured advertisement of their school.
After the event passed and things get to normal, they called me up one afternoon and meet me. As usual, I climbed & sweat through my way up. Sprayed some perfume, tidying up myself and went meeting them sharp at the time they initiated it. Oh yea for sake, they asked me to do a logo design for their Academy as they were constructing a website in progress..and they showed me their original logo which look kinda weird that they doesn’t fancy at all.
It took me a while to do this logo as I’ve no creative idea to illustrate a ballerina out..but until something/someone strike this idea to me. I created with Adobe illustrator software..tried many ways in playing with the Pen tool and brushes. Did quite a few designs until they made their decision on this.
The S is indicated as Singapore and as well as the curve of the ballerina’s body shape.
I was creating this illustration ballerina with color actually but..The principal herself prefers something plain and easy. Well if not..everything will look just so nice.
