Upcoming: Mission Restorable

It’s been a busy few months! I hope to catch the site up to what I’ve been doing offline!

What’s rather exciting and that’s coming up very soon is my appearance on local TV! The show is “Mission Restoration” and it’ll be on OKTO. This program, hosted by Bong, features old artifacts around Singapore that will get a bit of love from various artisans to restore them to new life! Some objects may even see themselves transformed. I’m not a art-restorer by trade, but I know my way around art materials, and was privileged to give an old rocking horse the Peranakan treatment.

Peranakan culture is not well known outside of SE Asia, but it is the heritage I have (from my mum’s side), and it’s a highly decorative, colourful and botanical-inspired visual style. It’s one of the most delightfully flamboyant cultural styles I can think of, and I was happy to explore it—and paint the rocking horse in 3 days. It’s quite a feat if I say so myself, and I hope you’ll tune in to watch the journey!

I’ll provide more information on the TV schedule as get it.

Pet Portrait Paintings, Sped Up

A recent online charity market for the local Animal Lovers League had me booked for a few pet portraits. I attached my web cam to my adjustable desk lamp and was able to film the painting process from above! I made a couple of videos, speeding the action up by 4 times, and then recorded my narration for how I work with your pet photos and with my paint methods.

These are my first YouTube vids, and really the first vids I’ve ever edited! I hope to get better with practice; please do stay tuned and subscribe to my channel or like my FaceBook page.

You can also order your own pet portrait here.
