Top Commenters Giveaways

Sorry for the very long pause. It’s Ramadan and there are tons of things to do. I only managed to do two paintings this month and the rest was spent doing house chores, cooking and what not.

But nonetheless, I managed to spend time making giveaways for this month’s Top 3 commenters. Here they are:

Top 1st: Cute tote bag with cute girl in pink shirt.



Top 2nd – Cute tote bag with cute girl in green fluorescent shirt. Cat not included, haha!



Top 3rd – Cute tote bag also (still in progress; will upload picture when I finished painting it.)

Up to it? You know what to do; be on the Top 3 on the list. You can view the score my my right sidebar. Talk to you soon!

Ramadan 2014

Salam Ramadan to all Muslims.

Made this personal note from found objects around my mother in- laws house. The pencil, pair of glasses and eraser represent me.

You can do photo like this too instead of finding images from the Internet. Just look around you and see what can be transformed into letters. Some of the things you can use: nails, rubber bands, string, pen, pencil, eraser, bottle cover, etc.

Do not steal this image, you can create it yourself. Just be creative.

Wherever you go…

To travel is…

…to take a journey to yourself. A quote by Danny Kaye that I translated into my own illustration. You like it? Thinking of making 12 illustrations for next year’s calendar. Tell me if you like the idea.
