Covert Improv Poster

The Price of Binge Drinking

This was my end of year animation project

It was THE most challenging project I ever had to tackle, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and am hoping to do more motion graphics in the future.
Poster for the exhibition


This was what my room looked like while working on this project. Although I am happy to have gotten rid of them all and re-plastered my walls with more pleasant posters once it was all over.

Shaun of the Dead

From left to right: Pete Serafinowicz, Tamsin Greig, Dylan Moran (as Harry Potter), Jessica Hynes, Simon Pegg, Lucy Davis, Martin Freeman, and Nick Frost.

I always enjoy seeing good comedy actors working together. And you see that quite a lot in British shows/ films.
In this particular piece, I wanted to show connections of these actors in terms of the shows they have done together (it was such a good lineup. It was a shame Billy Bailey wasn't a part of it)

If you're as geeky as me, you can look for references from Black Books, Spaced and The Office.

Funny Catwoman

This illustration took me 2 pain-striking days with a really old mouse.
I'm happy with the end result even though I still prefer the sketch over the coloured version.

Auckland Driver

A personal project - I live in Auckland, New Zealand where it's the norm to start swearing as soon as you get behind the wheel.

Mutha Uckas

The Flight of the Conchords family:
From left to right: Kristen Schaal (as Mel), Jemaine Clement (as Jemaine), Bret McKenzie (as Bret), Rhys Darby (as Murray Hewitt)

This is a combination of a few gags from some of my favourite episodes.
Each character is so lovable, hilarious and has his/ her trademark. I really enjoyed working on this piece and am looking forward to watching more of their stuff.

Mutha Uckas - Process

Old Coloured Pencil Drawings

Cupcake Queen
My other passion - baking. So much I even considered becoming a professional baker


Mmm... I wish to do a proper painting of these yummy baked goods.

Gender Twist

I thought this concept was quite humorous when I thought of it. As we get to see a lot of couples that seem to have switched roles and are happy with it.

The Battle
This was a gift for Dan Barrett - solely based on his "social life".
Looking at it now - 3 years after completing this piece, some of the references seem very confusing and odd, but I do remember having fun working on this piece.

Like Father Like Daughter

This is a portrait of my dad and myself.

Our senses happen to be extra sensitive during the hayfever season. I guess having lawn-mowing-obsessive neighbours doesn't help this fact either.

Sniff Master
An observation of 'the male species' I see on a daily basis.
Their sense of smell seems be somewhat more developed or "useful?" than any other senses.

2008 Christmas

Merry Christmas!
(Happy Jesus day!/ Happy Hanaka!/ Maseltof! etc)

How ironic. My first blog post being a humorous religious anti-shopping christmas card..

Anyway, to those who are shopping-phobic like myself,
Be encouraged by this image of Virgin Mary protecting her Christmas gift, Jesus.
And make your parents proud.

Have a safe Christmas.
