PSFK Conference Asia

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 1, 2008, 10:10 PM
PSFK Conference Asia is a creative business event with speakers from companies that include MTV, NASA, and Panasonic; agencies that include Flamingo International, Mindshare, Profero and Wieden + Kennedy; and leading creative visionaries that include Jeff Staple and Mark Dytham.


Great inspirational conference for me at PSFK on the 10th oct last month.
A workshop by Apparel Designer/legend Jeff Staple who shared with us how he made it big in the brutal apparel/design industry by "accident" and gave us valuable advice and reviewed our work as well.
It was followed by a full-day conference with speakers from leading companies in the world who gave their insight on trends and how the future looks to shape up.

Particularly interesting was Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture). He created a sensation in PechaKucha Night, which means chitchat in japanese, where people gather for a show and tell session about anything using a formula of 20 slides x 20 seconds = 6min40sec. No time wasted and no bored audiences with long unprepared speeches this way! It became so popular that over 140 cities around the world holds these sessions regularly.

The conference ended with an after party at Superfamous bar,
showcasing a small art exhibition, including IFS.

my ENTIRE country is crazy about this game!!!!

will try to do some art of my fav heroes soon!! :D :D :D

my current top 3 favs:  naga siren, pudge, rougueknight.
name yours~!!

Working with IFs has been really really great.
For one, the projects we were on were stuff i dreamt of being on.
(soulcalibur, warhammer40k, streetfighter to name a few)
i've learnt so much more i would ever learn frm school, or anywhere else i think. Lighting, color theory, and VALUES were things I never knew existed on a conscious level, much less deemed the most important fundementals of art.
And im very very grateful for the guidance of the good ppl of Imaginary friends. Without them, i wouldn't have been able to move along at such a rate.
Not to mention the countless hours of intense gaming. you guys r the best pals i can ever have.
:) damn I love this family!

Imagine Artbook Info

    Hi fellow Deviants! Some of you may be aware of a few of us coming together to form a studio thingy. Well as our very first project, we've gathered some of our favorite personal pieces and are in the process of printing a very limited edition launch portfolio artbook. The artbook is called IMAGINE: The Art of Imaginary Friends Studios with killer collab cover art by the main partners: :iconartgerm::iconkunkka::iconukitakumuki: The 128 page artbook features more than 20 artists from Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and friends from the USA. Deviants among them include: :iconartgerm::iconkunkka::iconukitakumuki::iconhoon::iconjujika::iconmiroart::iconsunnygho::iconplue::icondcwj::icontorei::icontysontan::icontotemv::iconknightcat::iconkaiz0: Because we really wanted to do these great works justice, we've gone for quality rather than quantity in the face of a limited budget. And how! We're doing 600 dpi printing! Yes you heard it here- 600 dpi!!! That's better than most commercial artbooks and even DA prints! Quantities are really limited though! Do help support our humble little first project or if you simply love the fantastic work these great artists are producing and wanna purchase a copy for purely selfish reasons. Visit to find out more! Thanks so much for supporting your imaginary friends!
we are your imaginary friends~ :)

i havnt been updating recently..  m(_ _)m
but i promise to be back on full juice in 2 weeks time. :D
currently moving back to singapore n other shit.
i hate uprooting n moving..
esp when its jAPan in question.  -__-

Thanks for all you guys support so far ( those whos still wit me anyway)
i gota take that piece of rant off my front page, or it will keep reminding me of it..
i found out (after several days of testing part by part piece by piece)
that its my fuckin MObo with the problem. <--(motherboard)

i kinda wished it was my graphics card, cos then i'd have a good reason to buy meself
a new top of the line gfxcard. but no..
it had to b the damn mobo which has no apparent ''special abilites'' other than to connect
all the other bits n pieces together. in other words, i cant get more RAM, more diskspace, faster processor, nor better graphics. cos i only have enough money to fix whats broken. :p
i lost the working file of my recent hellboy pic due to my own stupidity.. :cries:
i was resampling the psd file to the small jpeg size, n then i saved n closed photoshop b4 i realised wawt i just did. :X  
i went into shock, n i swear i cried right then n there..
its like i lost a part of my life.
its like i NEVER did the painting at all..
like i killed my own baby..
my own flesh n blood..
i am heartbroken..
so all im left with is a losuy low-res jpeg version that u see here..
(if any1 reading is reading this suicide note, ALWAYS CHECK B4 U SAVE N CLOSE UR STUFF!!!! trust me, u dun want to feel this pain..)

to top it off..
my comp died..
its either my video card fried or the motherboard went anal on me..
i cant get a whole new pc cos im broke.
i spent too much money buying kicks these past few months.. >_<
its hell living life without a comp fuck!
i cant play vampirebloodlines.. AARRGHGGHH
i cant paint...
i lost my hellboy...
hellboy killed me..
