New Works and Oh, Promotions!

It’s that time of the year again. A season of festivities and merriment, and sales. Yes, ’tis the season to be shopping for good bargains. I know, because I love this time of the year too.

Black Friday Sale starts now, along with a slew of discounts and promotions to carry on until the Christmas season (and even New Year’s, perhaps). My shop on Society6 has been running ongoing promotions since last week (so you just have to keep checking back to see what new discounts are being offered).

I’ve also added new artworks to the store, which may not be so visible there as the rest of the works under the Tarot Series. So I’ve included the direct links to them here:

The Society6’s Black Friday Sale is running now for 24 hours, which is until 11.59pm Pacific Time (North America) or November 28, 2015 at 3.59pm, Malaysian time. Free worldwide shipping too.

If you decided to grab some stuff from my store, thanks in advanced for your support!

Let’s Do This!

Today marks my official day of getting serious about doing illustration for a living. I’ve scaled down my day job to a part time position. Really grateful for a boss who understood why I’m doing this. I actually didn’t expect to start so soon, but I supposed I do need to get going and not wait any further. In a way, it’s all good.

This morning I’ve already done some research on pricing and commissions (Yes, I’ll open up for art commissions soon!), and all the other admin part of running a freelance business. So much to learn, really! And I’m learning as I go.

I’m also done with the planning for an upcoming personal project which I need to complete by end of December. Likely to release it early January 2016. So stay tuned, ya?

I’ve recently took an inking class with Yuko Shimizu on Skillshare. Working on my class assignment at the moment. Hoping to improve my inking better because I really love doing line art and want to know how to control brush strokes better. Very excited.

Yes, indeed there’s following up on my WIPs like the tarot deck (Card #6, The Chariot is next), and my graphic novel (which has been on a rocky path to get it going, but I need to fix that). Lots to do on my list.

Doing all this – trying to get a freelance illustration career going – feels scary but exciting at the same time. But I’m going to do my best to make it work. I don’t want to regret not trying. Let’s do this!

While I work on some stuff, you can check out my Behance portfolio and my Society6 store (it’s a season of ongoing promos this time of the year). Thanks for your support!

Lady Koi for your colouring pleasure

Adult colouring has been going on full swing of late, so I’ve decided to try something.

I’ve come up with a new illustration, downloadable for anyone who’s interested in colouring it. I’m curious to see how others would interpret the illustration as well. So…

Lady KoiMeet Lady Koi, with koi fish swimming through her hair. And yes, her mask is better than yours. It’s up to you to give her colour.

Go to the Downloads page to download Lady Koi. Print it out and colour away!

Once done, share it with me.

Yep. That’s it. Easy.

Happy colouring!
