Young Illustrators Awards 2012

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 30, 2012, 4:50 AM
I finally submitted my recent work to the Young Illustrators Awards 2012. (…)
This is my first time actually participating in a contest like this and I am really excited to see the artworks that will be selected.
I had actually used up all my savings which I earned from commissioning (a big thank you for those who had commissioned me before this!) and hope for the best :D
I'm not expecting to win anything from this but if my works do get recognized I would be thrilled.

Also, thank you for all the likes and wonderful comments on my artwork. I absolutely appreciate it and will reply to your comments soon.
I've been drawing this artwork last night so right now I'm feeling exhausted after coming back from work and all.
Enjoy and have a great day all~~! :D

Hey all!

I know I haven't been around lately but I had been busy at work most of the time.
However these few days I am slightly free (since it's not peak season) and I was contacted by a friend's company to put my hand drawn/handmade books as consignment in their shop this Christmas. I promised to provide them at least 20 books.

Currently I have been working on it during the weekends and I still have about 2 more weeks till I get all 20 books done.  I only have 8 done so far.

Anyhow,  if you're interested to see what books I have been making you can check it out here on my facebook page :…

Also I am selling some of them on Etsy. You can check out my works here :

Hope you have a great weekend all.
Hi all,
As you all know I've been learning on book binding and have been making a handful of books. I am planning to sell them as I have been making a lot of them and I'm still doing it :)

Every book is made with care and selected books comes with a mini keychain. I will be posting more pictures of them here within this week.

Also I have open an account on Etsy. I haven't used this before but I'm just trying it out. You can check it out here.…

I will probably post more on it too :D

If you know anyone who might be interested to purchase them, please let them know about my website and books :) I hope to be able to find a good owner for each of my books.

Enjoy your week everyone :)

Coming Soon

Rest in Peace

Sat Oct 15, 2011, 9:04 PM
Looks like this week I won't be able to upload much until the next night shift week. My grandmother has recently pass away last Wednesday and I've been away since then.

Just got back home last night and it was really tiring. Even though it was a sad event but I'm glad that I get to see my relatives which I had not been able to talk or keep in touch for a long time.

I kinda thought my grandmother was blessed in a way because of how our family grew from children all the way to great grandchildren. She manage to be with all of us until her last day.

She looks really peaceful sleeping in her coffin and I know it won't be the last time I'll see her. May she rest in peace.

She will be missed and will not be forgotten.
