Are you feline artsy? If so, check out “Art & Meow" by Elly Liyana, one of this week’s new designs! Here is the inspiration behind Elly’s design:
“I’d been brainstorming doing a ‘field guide’ of something. I had a number of ideas bouncing around… coffee, places, animals, and some others, which lead to the idea of an art guide. I had been looking at some cat gifs while thinking of René Magritte’s work, and I imagined a cat replacing Magritte’s painting, ‘The Son of Man’. René Macatte became the first in that list and before I knew it, I had created the rest one by one. The idea seemed so silly in my head that I had to create it just to see how really silly it really was. I’m glad I did!”

Thank you, Threadless!
This is what I have been excited to tell you all. Go get a shirt on threadless! Art prints will be out in time to come.
Something wonderful is coming in 7 days.
Something a lot of you have been emailing and messaging me about very often.
There will also be a giveaway because all of you played a part to make it happen. I am over the moon excited about it and can’t wait to share it with you guys next week.
So…watch this space!
It has something to do with Vincent Van Cat, Frida Catlo and the rest of their friends.

Inspirationhut.net featured me at their site recently.
For my work to be seen as an inspiration to anyone is one of the best compliments.
Thank you, Abbie!
On another note, I won’t be based in Singapore sometime soon. I’ve been busy planning for a new chapter in another beautiful country much further from here.
Light it up
I used to smoke for many years. I decided to quit smoking somewhere last year I think.
I have been smoke free for almost a year now maybe.

hziemke asked: How did you color your house drawing?
For the houses, I did the drawing on paper with pencil and some shading. Then I scanned it and coloured using Photoshop.
I played around with the layer tools, blending modes, opacity and worked from there. I did some trial and error, mix and match, cleaning and adjustments accompanied with bad singing…et voilà!
It is kind of similar to how I do oil painting. I would do a layer of burnt umber, then I would proceed to layer of black and white and finally the initial block of colours and glazing.
What I’ve learned in colouring artwork both digitally and not is that, building up different coloured layers give a really nice effect in the end.
Also, Photoshop is godsend. Hah
There’s a hole in my neighbourhood.
This neighbourhood is coming to life soon.
I’ve always wanted to draw a bunch of houses. Finally getting to it today.
