Here i am yet back again. still testing, still experimenting. currently trying out pastel palettes trying out different hues and tones. note to my younger self, f**k being perfect and seem like you got s**t figured out when you don’t. i regret not taking the time and patience to figure this out when i was still in college. i could’ve set up a better spot and portfolio for myself and most importantly, getting myself exposed to more ideas and experiments. nonetheless i guess its best to appreciate the current conscious. to enlightenment! 啓蒙のためのトースト!
In the midst of a conflict within my ownself; still trying to figure out colour implementation on my works. still building up my very own fundamental artstyle i guess..
gahh this is still progress as long as i’m not idling! to enlightenment! 啓蒙のためのトースト!

sidm blk m ltm-1
Once again, students from the school of interactive and digital media (sidm) took part in the “passion arts festival 2018” that was held at the open area outside of courts at toa payoh central on july 15. this year, the event was launched with our senior minister of state, mr chee hong tat gracing the official opening.
with the mentoring from sidm alumnus dan wong (@danwongzijian ) , fourteen sidm students exercised their creativity over the course of three weekends to illustrate the concept of a whimsical wonderland onto various bedroom’s furniture such as a bookshelf, wardrobe and small cupboards. besides exercising their creativity, the students also had fun bonding with each other too! even volunteers from the public joined in the project as well!
this opportunity have certainly brought a lot of joy to sidm and the school is happy to be able to contribute to the community again! #passionarts#singapore#nypsidm#sidmstudents#sidmalumni
