This was an in class project that we did to get to know each other and I really enjoyed this!

Above is how my Journal looks like after my previous research. Although I researched a lot on the methods, I was quite stumped as to the theme. I love doing artworks about myself, but sometimes it’s hard to keep it interesting.
As I went along my thought process, I eventually drew the conclusion that I should use symbols in my Read more →
Artist research: Craig Atkinson
So as previously mentioned, I went to the library to read up on a few graphic design books 2 weeks ago and I chanced upon one called Cut & Paste: 21st Century Collage by Richard Brereton and Caroline Roberts.
One artist from the book stood out to me in particular and that was Craig Atkinson.
Similar to Concannon’s work, I love Read more →
Research into Tart Cards
It appears that there is a proper name for cards advertising prostitutes and in the UK, the term would be tart cards. (Before that I was just googling “photo cards” “name cards”…amateur pfft wished I had researched a bit more into this hours ago) Tart cards were often found in London’s telephone booths in the past and now with the Read more →

I am using various artists and mediums as reference for my artworks.
During class consultation, Ina suggested that I explore a dark, macabre theme for “ice queen” and I feel like Takato Yamamoto’s artwork resonates with me and in line with what I want to achieve. However, I’ll be referencing Yamamoto for “agender” instead and switched the original idea Read more →

This teaser project was a a fun project to start the semester and segue us to the first project: Typographic Portrait.
Abstract: Dinosaur icons to represent my love for dinosaurs.
As a child, I used to retract my thumb and pinky so it looks like I have the three claws of a velociraptor. I can even name some of Read more →

Artist Research: James Concannon
I am so excited to type this post cause just yesterday I discovered an artist named James Concannon while scrolling through Instagram and he could quite possibly be my favourite artist of all time.
I love everything about this guy…the fact he uses garbage, trash to make art and the way he assembles them in that particular DIY punk style without having Read more →
New Hostess Club Opening Soon~
I have to admit the past 2 weeks I didn’t really have much of a concrete idea of what to do…all I did was go to the library, borrowed books on 80s graphic design, concert flyer designs, old chinese label designs, cut-and-paste graphics…basically types of designs I was interested in but still I wasn’t really sure how to put them Read more →
