Competition Entry Submitted!

Slept for probably just about 4 hours last night, and was hard at work in front of my computer most of the day without the slightest nap.  Finally got my design submitted to a competition just before midnight, hours before the deadline!  I would never get things done if not for deadlines, the power of […]

Design Magazines

The ex-designer at my brother’s office had left behind a whole bookshelf of design magazines, I decided to browse through them today in search of some inspiration for the upcoming design competition.  Indeed, there were a lot of inspiring designs in the archive of AXIS – a Japanese design magazine.  There is something irresistible about […]

Creative Monday

Hardly did anything creative today other than stroll around furniture and design stores looking for inspirations for a design competition I plan to participate in.  During my regular weekly oil painting class tonight, we started a new painting. One of my best friends initiated a conversation today about starting a little business together, this isn’t […]

Day Off

Took a day off to go see the winning entries of the GIFT Competition.  It was nice to see all the marvelous works of local talents, my entry was a bit of a joke in comparison. There was time to spare in the afternoon, I bought some supplies and eagerly went straight to the studio […]

Site Study

Uncluttering Life

Finally started rolling out a little website project I’ve started more than a month ago, shouldn’t be too long until I can put a close to it.  Also renewed a couple of my IDs so that I can happily do some traveling in August as planned.  And now that my mother’s home and slowly recovering, […]

GIFT Design Ideas Competition

Started looking into an architecture design competition I enrolled earlier.  The competition documents are quite detailed, the requirements on anonymity and confidentiality made the competition seem especially official and fair, and the requirement on deliverables seemed a little intimidating.  I imagined this is rather usual for all architecture competitions, but this is my first time […]

A Real Studio?!

I don’t remember for how long and to how many people I’ve been saying that I wanted to rent an industrial unit as a studio/workshop to do some messy work (e.g. painting, soldering, woodworking,…), and I may have just found one today, and possibly for $0 rent too! It just so happens that my family […]
