Dorothy Gale

This is my interpretation of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz
a hundred years from when the last book ended.
This is part of a school project where I am designing environments
and characters for the Land of Oz, imagining what it would be like
a hundred years into the future.

Tea Princess Catalogue

Tea Princess Nursery Rhyme Book

Tea Princess is a fashion label for little girls from
Sydney and I used their gorgeous clothes designs for
my illustrations. These pictures were for a project
that combined fashion illustration with children's book
illustration. I wanted to come up with a fashion catalogue
that was in the form of a nursery rhyme book.

You can check out the beautiful Tea Princess clothes here!

My Prints

I picked up printmaking over the hols and totally love
the hand cut style. Will continue to use more of this
technique in the future...

Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy, Bess

Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy, Bess

This one of the pieces of a book of rhymes for girls that I
am doing for a project in school. Can't disclose all the details cos
I want to reveal it all at once when I'm done!
The clothes have all been designed by Tea Princess,
really exquisite stuff.

I did this piece for an exhibition in Melbourne
to raise funds for the children in Kenya..
Did this in kind of a rush! I forgot all about
it till the last minute but didn't want to just
let such a good cause go away... I think its
not everyday you get to use your artwork for
something other than indulging yourself
(something we artists always do!)

can't think of a name as usual.. suggestions?
I did this with the idea of a little Kenyan girl
excited to be going to school

some animal characters

Animal Characters

Some animal character designs I did long ago for a 3d animation
project. You can view the project here:
and click on Ted's Ice Cream Adventures
This project was done to create games for autistic children with
emphasis on things such as making eye contact and taking turns.

Tomorrow There'll Be Sun
My submission for the topic 'Brave'.
I actually came up with this idea while getting stuck at the
A&E for 3 hrs. My friend and I were trying to pass the time
and she told me about how she met children from the cancer
wards who are always terribly brave about the difficulties that
they have to through and I was very impressed.
Hopefully all of us will learn a thing or two from these little warriors

I don't know what to name this!
This was my initial idea for 'Propogate' but I felt that
it represented growth more than propogate, so I scrapped it..
but I liked the drawing very much so I finished it in my free time

Mag Cover

Concept for Harper's Bazaar Cover

I did this for a fashion illustration assignment.
I tried to make it into an art noveau inspired design
with the thick lines and flowers; I'm not sure it got
there but I'm quite pleased with the result as its my
first time using watercolour!

Hello World!

This is Me

Hello Everyone! I suppose that I should give a little introduction
about myself since this is my first online artblog.
Yes, this picture is a cartoonisation of myself. I did this a year ago
so now my hairstyle is a bit different, but It's about the same.
I'm a Singaporean currently studying in Melbourne.
I've graduated from Swinburne with a Degree in Design and currently
in my final year of Bachelor of Illustration in NMIT.

I love children's books and children's art and I have a passion in
drawing characters and coming up with stories for them.
My favoured mediums are digital and colour pencil but I'd like to
try out more brushwork as well.

I hope to become a children's book illustrator or anything that has
to do with design and lets me draw :)

Oh and I also make books! You can check them out here:

Haven't done much new books in a while but I will be starting again soon
and upgrading my designs and skills!
Yup that's about all about me that I figured would be the LEAST boring.

A character I came up with.
She's the lead singer of a band together
with two other girls. I have yet to paint the other two though!
Hopefully I'll get on with it when I get a bit of time in between
