A lot has been going on in my life lately and I have been very busy finishing book illustration jobs. I have been thinking about how to save my time and work smart and came up with this idea to draw minimally. Children can still relate to it, I am not worried about that.
Anyway, here’s my first naive try. I am sketching in-between work and hope to come up with more actions and maybe a different hair because my Dina character has braided hair.
A collaboration with MyTownk KL, Cheras, in conjunction with 2017 Hari Raya festival.

Recently did this front cover illustration for the upcoming Gaya Travel 9.4 issue.
Been doing vector because it’s hard to change and move elements around if I do it traditionally using watercolour.
Here’s what I came up with for the latest issue. The theme is culture and nature.
I did a color quiz (just for fun) and the result said I am a yellow person. I seldom put yellow (I do have some with yellow) in my artworks but will definitely use it for future artworks.
According to colormatters.com, yellow is the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring.
Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color.
In the natural world, yellow is the color of sunflowers and daffodils, egg yolks and lemons, canaries and bees. In our contemporary human-made world, yellow is the color of Sponge Bob, the Tour de France winner’s jersey, happy faces, post its, and signs that alert us to danger or caution.
