A few weeks ago while I was in the city, I impulsively decided to check out the The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art at GOMA and QAG. While I was a little rushed (I had about 45 minutes), I managed to see nearly all of the artwork from the exhibition.
I know the Card Project is over but I couldn’t help making a new birthday message for someone who missed out last year.
It’s time for another Designer Love post and today we’re looking at someone who I’d be surprised if you hadn’t heard of or seen his work before. I’m talking the awesome talents of Olly Moss.
It feels like ages since my last unique everyday design post! Today I want share some quirky and cool designs I’ve found over the past couple of months.
It’s been a while since I wrote a favourite artist post but this one only just caught my eye recently (well sorta – explained further down) and she needs to be talked about! Today I’m looking at the wonderfully whimsical, colourful and spring inspired work of Katie Daisy.
I’m trying to incorporate drawing more into my routine, setting aside some time in each week to just spend time sketching stuff, whether it’s part of a project or just a small piece like this. This was my little drawing from last night after just sitting there, staring at a blank piece of paper, wondering the same question.
I haven’t really posted anything since the start of the year and I apologise for that. It’s due to being partly busy and partly lazy. I’m hoping to get back into it, I just need to work out a better schedule I’m more likely to stick to that lets me work on other personal projects as well (to be shared in due time). I’m hoping to do a couple more favourite artists and unique everyday design posts plus try out a couple of new types of posts ^_^.
In the mean time, I leave with this little piece of inspiration from Brain Picking’s article “How to Write with Style: Kurt Vonnegut’s 8 Keys to the Power of the Written Word“.
Yes, it’s true – I’m wrapping up the card project with the end of 2012. It’s been fun creating so many different designs and illustrations for my friends and family and I feel I’ve learned a lot from the process. After two years though it’s time to move onto some new projects so I won’t be making any more cards (except for maybe a couple here and there ^_~).
Apart from my Christmas cards, I created three birthday cards for friends during December. All of them were handmade, with some even having a bit of interactivity (apart from the obvious opening and closing).
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day with your family or friends while enjoying yummy food and awesome gifts!
As I’m finishing up the Card Project this year, my Christmas cards and gift tags would be the last items for me to create.
The end of year birthday season is in full swing which means there’s an influx in birthday cards and web-pages for me to make. Since we’re now at the start of December, I’d thought I’d share all the birthday web-pages I created over the past month.
