    Spot illustrations for an activity book

    Here are a few spot illustrations I made for a North American book publisher. I can’t say much about this project except that these are for a kids’ activity book that will be released in 2014. Some simple road signs and symbols. My easiest illustration assignment EVERRRR.   I was also asked to illustrate a couple of family holiday scenes. My working sketch   I happened to capture some of the sketch-in-progress via Instagram:   Screenshots of my process   The final scene   Sketch for the second scene   Process   Final art   Hmm. Blog posts sharing new work are so much easier to write when I’m not…

    Stampin’ Up! Undefined Stamp Carving Kit and postcard giveaway winners announced

    Thanks to everyone who joined my Stampin’ Up! Undefined Stamp Carving Kit giveaway last week! There were 114 people who joined from various countries like Italy, Singapore, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, USA, the Philippines, the Middle East… all over! There were 60 comments on the blog entry within a span of 12 hours on the first day of the giveaway, which was awesome because this is my first ever giveaway and I was afraid only 15 people would join or something.

    Review: Stampin’ Up! Undefined Stamp Carving Kit

    Look what I got to play with recently! It’s been a while since I carved any stamps because I’ve been busy with illustration work. I’ve been itching to dig my tools into erasers and rubber and this came at a perfect time! [pinit]   It’s a Stampin’ Up! Undefined Stamp Carving Kit which comes with everything you need to start carving your own custom rubber stamps. Fun! I’m not a fan of pre-made creativity and apart from the time I was ten and bought some kiddie stamps from a neighbour’s garage sale, I’m not the type who would buy ready-made stamps. Some old stamps I got from a garage sale…

    Some recent work! I sometimes steer clear of labelling myself as a children’s illustrator (preferring to just use “illustrator”) in my various social networking/online portfolio accounts, as I don’t want to limit myself to doing nothing but children’s illustrations. I get a lot of work aimed towards illustrations for the 0-5 year old age group, but I know my work can also appeal to an older demographic, like pre-teens, teens, and young adults. Case in point, this illustration I made recently for Puzzle Michele Wilson, a French company that’s known mostly for making jigsaw puzzles. They also make toys, postcards, magnets, pendants, and accessories. The brief was to show a…

    Subscribing to RSS feeds (mine, specifically)

    Some of you might’ve noticed that going to my URL, Wedgienet.net, now brings you to my portfolio page instead of showing you my most recent blog posts, as was the case previously. Annoying? Very. I myself don’t like the extra step of clicking on the blog link in the menu bar above just to get to the recent entries. However, if I were to send my website link to an art director for her to check out my portfolio, my work is what I’d like to be seen first and foremost, not my blog. “So what about me, your average reader?” you complain. “Do I really have to make an…
