Voluptuous 21st Century Girl

Just a little simple illustration for you all. Based slightly on true conversation between me and a colleague at work. He was describing female body types, as you do! Out of curiosity I asked his opinion on what he thought was my body type. He said, " I was "VOLUPTUOUS..." 
And he described that word very well including funny hand gestures. After all that, I was flattered and it's a really nice word to be described. Lot more oomph than described "curvy," no? So there's lots of kinds of Voluptuous-ness and here is mine. We come to accept all body types and I am happy to be "Voluptuous." Mmmm

The Launch! Of Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration

It is the morning after, and it's a great feeling Im feeling, after attending the launch of Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration and meeting really talented and fabulous people. The venue was 123 Bethnal Green Road, and the party started downstairs in the lower floors, with live band. It was bustling and lively atmosphere if you can tell them the photos!

Also I had chance to meet my fellow illustrators who are also in the book! I found it's really nice to see the face behind the illustration.  I also met jewellery designers, Maxine of Little Miss Delicious with amazing blue hair cute bracelets and Maggie Angus who seagulls/ship earrings I really love! So check them out!

Me with Zarina Liew
Jenny Robins and her man. 

With the lady herself, Amelia Gregory who worked hard all night. 
Amelia cutting a delicious cake from Lily Vanilli. So much white chocolate!  

It was a great night out, on another note,
 I wish I had chance to meet everyone I missed. Perhaps another illustration meetup in order, methinks...Mmmm. 

If you not had chance to buy the book, you can always link here xxx

Moi in Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration!

It's here it's here it's finally here! The brightest star in a form of book. That is called Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. As most of you know, the journey from the Open Briefs, selection process, proofs and now I have physical print in my hands. ^_^

My illustrations is featured along with many talented illustrators. The book got a really natural pearlescent cover which perfectly suits Andrea's work. Also throughout the spreads, there is a organic feel, which carries through to promote ethical fashion designs.

I really like the jazzy backgrounds and the layouts, which Amelia worked hard to produce. On a final note, I am extremely happy and proud to be part of the journey and it's a great start to 2011.

Bring on 2011! Happy New Year!

Hello! And a Happy New Year!
Like the title, bring on 2011! Quick post for now, been working few shifts lately during the holiday period.
Now into the seasonal spirit, I had brief moment to reflect and clarity. Which is why I like New Years celebration then Christmas. New Years like everyone is a fresh start, clean slate and a progression. Sorry to repeat hehe, what can I say, that you all haven't heard from everyone else already.

On a brighter note, I've celebrated last night with old friends with an impromptu limo drive to Brighton! It was wicked! The photos I've taken are not so good. If you wanna see the limo, click here.

So a resolution, take more risks and go on to many more adventures! ^_^
Hope you all have a great start to the New Year and let's see what 2011 may bring. xx
