Season's Greeting


These cards are designed by me.  I've been writing Christmas cards all this week. Hoogh! My left hand is very painful. I bet there are loads of cards going out from each house around this time. And the queue in Post offices!! Amazing!
It is the year of tiger next year.

Also, I have set up my own website! So visit my website at  if you haven't already!

From factory to Illustration

When I went back to Japan this summer, I visited my friends in Yamaguchi. There I saw a lot of factory buildings and chimneys. Because the area belongs to Japan's industrial zone that runs almost down parallel to the island itself. I was amazed by the look of it. The bare pipes running across the buildings, number of chimneys blowing smokes out and it continues to the distance. That moment I was enchanted by the view. So I decided I want to turn them into my work, somehow use their beautiful shapes in my illustration and these are the result of it. They are also entry for UT design 2010.

This is soooooooooo Japanese!

My friend has pointed out to me that the Japanese people tilt their heads when they are thinking or trying to recall something. So I have illustrated this. Japanese people bow when they show appreciation or apology as well. This behavior is called ojigi.

My work was chosen for the Two of Heart competition! Yay!

Two of Heart Playing Card

Submission to Two of Heart Competition for shelter at Amelia's magazine. I tried using mix of 2D and 3D again like book banner.
Again, it was quite hard to take a good picture of it and manipulate on computer. i had my camera for more than 1 year and still don't know all the settings! I should read my camera manual properly, I Thanks to Y who helped me take photographs. 
The theme of my illustration came from the Three Little Pigs, given the theme shelter.
