Babushkins here we come!

I created these guys quite a few years back. I called these Russian dolls, the Babushkins. And at the time I wanted to make a story out of them but somehow didn't get round to it. Maybe it's time for a revival...

Introducing the Mixxie Kids

So far, I have managed to create more faces and have even given them a name called the Mixxie Kids. But not sure what I can do with them other than create a pattern with their heads for now.

Make your mark the cute way

It's been a while since I have been able to be crafty and creative. So by setting up an Etsy shop, I thought it might give me more motivation.

But the question is, what can I make? How about customised rubber stamps?

We all need to make ownership of our own possessions, so why not make it in a cute and adorable way! So I started off illustrating generic boy and girl illustrations. But when I gave it some more thought, I came to the conclusion that I could possibly expanding on the idea and create more faces.

Cupcake icing

Cupcakes addict. Just experimenting with icing and ready made sugar flowers. Not bad for a first attempt.

Tokyo dreams

Finally, sometime away from one big smoke to another! Here we are in Tokyo. Having the spent the last 4 days here, there's been much to see and do. Having exhausted ourselves on their complex metro and subway system, it is now time to go back but here are just some of the coolest and in some cases kawaii highlights.

Cyber environment

For a month, I'm working at Cyberport, Hong Kong. It's a very desirable place to live - for the mega wealthy but for the rest of us working class, it's considered to be a bit of a nightmare commute for Hong Kong standards. In a more remote part of Hong Kong island, Cyberport was built to represent a Silicon Valley of Hong Kong. But sadly, with inadequate transport links, it is not the most desirable place to work. But I would say, they had some 'cyber' themed Chinese New Year decorations around the vicinity - which 'cutified' the scene and made it less stuffy.

Claim to fame

I got an important parcel in the post yesterday. I had been waiting for it for months. Actually, tell a lie, I only found out that the publishers were going to publish the article a couple of weeks ago. And finally it came and I unwrapped it to see it in its flesh and glory. And how did it come about?

When I was back in the UK last October, Taiwanese publishers, Suncolor, picked me out of a few UK artists and asked me for an interview when they were on their travels in London. I suppose the saying goes, you've got to be at the right place at the right time!
