From Hubby & Me..


Hehe... My hubby and I look funny there. Just a 'quick' animation out of my black&white pen sketch this morning.

Buat semua kawan-kawan, ahli-ahli keluarga dan pembaca2 yang senyap... yang akan berpuasa pada bulan Ramadhan ini,  ET doakan buat diri dan kamu agar akan berpuasa dengan ikhlas dan sabar. Semoga Allah menerima ibadah kita kepadaNya dan dipermudahkanNya.

Trading Doodle...

I've seen her cute, funny- doodle works before... and when I went to her blog, DoodleLiciouss recently, I saw that she is trading doodles!

This is one of CC's many adorable Doodles! Aww..

What an idea :).

Trading Doodle is a FuN thing to do. You get to share and exchange with others who love to draw/ doodle too.

Hey, why not...? I think, everybody CAN doodle. Even if it doesn't turn out nice, who's to judge? If someone judge, who cares? Because when it comes from you, it's unique.... and it's YOU. Just appreciate it.

So here's one for you, CC.  Hope you like it.



Would you like to Trade Doodle with me too?
Can't wait to receive a dudel from you, CC *wink*wink. hehehee.

Have fun, everyone.

Ramadhan is just around the corner. If I don't upblog soon, I'd like to wish everyone who'll be fasting, a Blessed and Great Ramadhan, insyaAllah.

Caricatures for a Wedding & a Birthday

I'd like to update with a couple of recent orders of Caricatures. Thanks a lot for ordering because I'm happy to be a tiny part of your big Celebrations!

For an upcoming Wedding, it's a Black & White job:-



Then, a birthday is coming up this weekend for a lucky 18 yrs old Boy... I had to make 2 Cards for him- one from his adorable siblings and one from his loving parents :). Awww..




Both A5 sized Cards were done in Mix Media- black pen/ marker, color pencils, magic pens and plaka-lack paints for handicrafts.

Enjoy!

A Boy, A Book Mark... & A Wedding Card.

My nephew, Amin was looking at my 'hanging' handmade bookmarks the other day (the ones for Kalerpalette's Vintage Bazaar- oh, look! some pictures from them, here- by the way.. ;)......

A few of the Book Marks were Sold. Will update on what's left here, later.

The gorgeous girls behind Kalerpalette with my "Vintage Dresses"!!

... and asked me to make one for him. Awww... I think it's nice for a kid of 7 years old to appreciate this kind of thing :). Well, not totally A surprise, though- as Amin really loves Art. He often watched his Artist dad, too.


Last 2 years, he drew my portrait. Still keep it on my fridge :-)

Exactly like me! 

So, anyway... because he asked, I made one hanging Book Mark for him:-


He loved it, of course. But now, his other brother, Haqeem also wanted one for himself. Hmmm... Guess he has to wait a bit because I'm in the middle of finishing some paintings for upcoming group exhibitions in August and September. Watch out for updates about it in my ArtBlog, soon :).

I'm just glad over the fact that I've printed and sent the 600 pcs of Wedding Cards to my neighbor's daughter. It was Custom Designed... according to what she (and her parents) wanted (and on budget too!). Quite simple and nice, English feel... with a cute touch of a little flower ribbons in front of the Card (which were patiently planted one by one on the Card with my Mom's and sisters' help- Thank God!)





Already, that's all for now..

Enjoy.

Life's Like That :)


Just a silly cartoon sketch I made recently after I came across this anonymous 'quote' from somewhere.. hehe.

Wherever you are, be safe, my friends :). 
Well, at least take some precautions. 
We can only but plan.


And by the way, don't forget there'll be a Vintage Bazaar coming up this Saturday in Jalan Maarof, Bangsar. A limited collection of my hand made/ painted Bookmarks will be up for grabs at Kalerpalette's Booth over there :).

If you don't have much plan, why don't you drop by? 
Have fun.

My Little Mermaid..

She recently turned 5!

My sweet little '1st' niece, Marissa...


Owh! I also designed the little sticker for her goodies :)

This year, I had the chance to create a little cute birthday card for her..


... which needed a hand drawn caricature (with mermaid's body), a bit of golden craft-wire, watercolor, pen, Pelikan plaka-lack special colors, heavy textured watercolor paper, a used beaded gold string, scissors and urmm.. a remote control to change the TV channel to accompany my quite evening that day.


Suddenly, it was done! hehe..
And that was what the craft-wire bit for :) ... just giving it a unique touch!


There you are... A Birthday Card which can be used as A Bookmark, someday :)



One HaPpY recipient with her own little mermaid!

Yay!

What a beautiful birthday party... 
only suited for a little Princess like you, dear Marissa.

with LoTs of LoVe,
your 1st auntie & uncle.

A Vintage Market & Some things for Raya.

I know.. I know..
It has been a while since I last upblog-ed. ('upblog' is the term used when I tell my bee that I'm updating my blog.. hehe :)

What have I been up to?
Well, just a few things here and there... doing this and that.
Sometimes, when my hands are busy making things, I feel quite lazy to upblog. While the hands were working, the head was busy thinking and planning about things to do next. By the end of the day/ night, the whole body felt tired and just needed some rest.. and a good massage (*hint *hint ).

Ok now, firstly... let me update about another July EVENT coming up next weekend. I was excited to be invited by the fabulous Artsy gals at Kalerpalette to contribute some little things for them!

One of Kalerpalette's latest vintage Collection.

What Event did I hear you ask? This POSTER will tell you all about it...



As you might have known, I don't have any actual vintage stuff to sell but... but... I do have VINTAGE Dresses BOOKMARKS :) ! Tra la laaa....la laa...


Hey, look who's peeking? It's Birdy Gaga! teeheehee.



These are just a few pieces of many more to come.. (I hope). They are fun to make but take a lot of time too- the hangers... the dress patterns... pheww! 

So, then there's another thing that I'm doing... which is designing and printing Custom Made Raya Cards plus Duit Raya Envelopes. Yes, some people still use them, in case you forget :). Let me show the one recently approved by a corporate client:


You know, even the songket on the Card was an original songket I took from my Dad's wardrobe (hehe.. thanks Abah!) and photographed by yours truly too.

I still think it's very nice to receive and send Raya Cards because they're tangible generous 'thoughts' which you can keep for years. But lately, of course, more people are sms-ing and maybe MMS-ing Raya Greetings- which is also good, as long as we don't forget who matters to us in festive times like this. That's why I also am offering to create a custom made greetings through MMS. A simple yet complicated animation of your own Caricature.

Let me show you a sample:



Yes, you can download this thing in your mobile and send MMS to your family & friends. It's like you buy only ONE Raya Card and can send to many people :) heheee...all for one, one for all, maa!

What do you think? If you're interested, please email me at doodledsgn@gmail.com.

Owh, did I tell you I made a badge to the lovely AyuJamal.. who then ordered one more for her BFF blogger, Puanbee- as a gift? Thanks U :).



By the way, Ayu made a very thoughtful post on me last week- really appreciate that, U. Awww...





Adios for now, my friends...
Gotta make more 'vintage' hangers. hehee.


Take care :)

Hmmm...

Being a very informative sister that I am, I asked her to sit beside me and said, " ... let's GOOGLE together!" ehehee.

A few images seen from the internet have given her some ideas too...



But my cartoon image might be one of those silly jokes in regard of this nationwide news. Well, just something to amuse myself now... kehkehkeh.




That's all folks!

Stay home, be safe. Do some crafts or drawings or something.
But that's just me.

Take care, everyone.



The Sweet 17 Gal...

A loving mom has asked me to create a Birthday Card for her daughter's 17th B-day this coming weekend... with the sweet gal's Caricature on it!

I know that this gal loves anime and she's a pretty good artist herself :)... so, I draw her caricature with anime's outfit. Hehe...( well, more or less..)



Hope she'll like it ;P!

Happy Sweet 17 to Ayang... All the Best for your BIG test this year!

Have fun.

I just love going to the Bazaar at the Floria- there's so much to see, shop and eat, plus a few of my flower paintings will be exhibited at the Malaysia Watercolor Society's (MWS) Booth. You can go ahead and click my flower painting below to go to my Art Blog and read more about it:-



And owh.. another happening event which I'm not so sure if I'll be going (hehee)...SimplySiti Gala Night & Festival.


I'm just helping my little sis here who's one of the Event's Organizers- to announce that there are still a few more of the Carnival Booths opened for any Vendors or Crafts sellers maybe interested..? Please contact Anna Yusoff personally at hippototty@yahoo.com.


While I was browsing to one of my creative blogger's sites ( mimpimurni- to be exact- yes, she has a very lovely, inspirational blog- do check it out!), I saw an interesting Event which will be held in PJ:


When: 16th July 2011

Website: http://www.urbanscapes.com.my/

Not sure what to say about this event as I've never been to one before. But who knows... if I don't have any other plan... owh wait!!... my niece's Birthday Party will be on the same day. That reminds me- must make a Cute Card for her :).


Hmm... what else huh?


Owh yess.. my lovely client, Ayu Jamal has a new header which was initially done for animation but because it couldn't run, now it's just a cool still header, nonetheless. So, I'd like to update it here too :)). Thanks, Ayu!



Well, look at how the time flies... in another month, Ramadhan will be here. Now, I'm off to create and propose a few Hari Raya Aildilfitri Card designs for my other client. I'm thinking of making a few Raya Wish animations too- for myself and for individuals who are interested to send personal MMS through their mobiles- yes, with your own Caricatures. I'll show some samples when I have the chance, ok?

Wish me Luck!... And I wish all the Best to you too :).
