For this project, I wanted it to have a more 3D feel to it as I am more product designing inclined. I wanted my artwork to have pop-ups and could be interactive.
The first idea I had was to do paper origami. From past experiences I have folded many different types of shapes and design and I think it could be Read more →
I really like the rain. This words means continuous rain in chinese. To add a bit of flair to the art work I drew my chinese surname in a rain like manner.

Below are the snapshots of the compiled book pages unedited and edited, versions after versions.
(I would have put the original compiled images here but the file was too big)
With all these versions that I had, I came Read more →
So after researching and brainstorming for ideas, I wrote (or rather, vomited) all my thoughts onto my sketchbook. Some pages were quite blank because I thought that it’d be easier if I were to start making them straight away so that I could do some troubleshooting if anything were to happen.
Here are the pages of my sketchbook:
