i love the paper cut outs.. reminds me of the days when i was a little kiddo holding on to the ball-point pen and scissors all day long, drawing and cutting away on all the papers my parents could give me.
what is “van gogh” doing at this void deck : http://www.razor.tv/site/servlet/segment/main/news/66180.html
“” because… it is NOT van gogh.
i love you, my country, Singapore. but you really can be such a disgrace many times, with regards to the celebration of originality art and design. For generations (and more to come), the children in Singapore are being taught that endorsing ANYTHING famous in ANY WAYS possible, including being “inspired by” (which, come on, let’s be real, is really “COPIED from”) is nothing but good.
Buying a painting? – is the painter famous?
Buying a bag? – is it a famous international brand?
Painting the void deck? – there’s nothing better than using a famous artist’s work.
Singing at the NDP? – the best option would be to plagiarize a commercial hit song.
SO.GOD.DAMN.PROUD.OF.YOU. and very very saddened….
i remember this post i made 2 years ago : http://littleoddforest.wordpress.com/2009/04/02/sick-to-my-stomach/
i’m not sorry to say that i really hope the shop has folded long ago…
A total of 70 hand-pressed hand-drawn doodle-face buttons have been adopted so far! (I will be updating the final amount again later this week) – thank you all for showing your support for our Japan Relief Fundraiser. Sew it on or pin it on to show off your support! Kindly note once again that Full Proceeds from the Net Sales of these buttons will be donated to the Singapore Red Cross. Besides the cost of materials and so on, I will also be paying for all the etsy fees from my own pocket, so no worries about that.
This Surprise Doodle-Face Fabric Button fundraiser In Aid Of Japan, one of our favorite places in this world, will continue until this Friday 25 March 2011, marking 1 week since I started this fundraiser in aid of Japan, and 2 weeks since the terrible tragedy struck. Because I am out of town, it will be pretty difficult to attend to all your doodle-faces requests. Honestly, I am having so much fun attending to all your faces-requests – I have not had such freestyle, freehand fun in quite a while, and that is one of my favorite things to do, ever. And I also did not expect you sweet peeps to enjoy having a requests option so much! Thus the decision to end the fundraiser this Friday. I think it has been a pretty successful 5-day run so far on, considering the buttons are going for only $5 each Please continue to show your support if you can and help spread the word. 3 more days! Thank you, and Ganbatte, Japan! Our friends there have been reporting their safety, and we are very sure that our favorite Nippon-land will get right back up on its feet really soon. I want to visit again real soon for some fabric shopping!
CURRENT TOTAL : $214.49 + $92.40 = $306.89 (click More below for details). Thank you so much for giving from your hearts! The second batch of doodle-faces will be mailed out today (Wed 23 March 2011). *First batch of doodle-faces have already been mailed out! (Mon 21 March 2011)

A BIG Thank You to all of you who have supported this fundraiser. We hope to do more to contribute to the Japan Relief Efforts, please help to forward the message if you can. Many more doodle-faces await!

isn’t this almost similar to legally producing and selling fake chanels anything and fake patek phillipe watches just so that “not so well-off” people can buy and enjoy them???? what in the world??? gahhhhh! such an atrocity!!!
bringing art to the “heartlanders” ??????
in the very first fucking place, this is exactly WHY the so-called “heartlanders” they are referring to here, will NEVER learn what art is all about! never! in this country that i call my home!
why appreciate the real thing in this or that internationally-acclaimed museum, when you can get a replica and hang in your “humble heartland flat”. why bother supporting talented current artists whose art pieces costs 4-digits and above, when you can get a FAKE van gogh for just lesser than $300 singapore dollars?????

i’m sorry but, i’m beyond sick to my guts.
fyi, this is in today’s straits times papers, life section.
rushing off for an urgent meeting, but just had to spend a few minutes ranting my brains out here.
ciao. bad day. bad day!
#just added info#
for my buds who just lurk around my blog and don’t blog themselves and love annoying me by commenting on my posts via sms.. duh! heh..
my printed work may be found exhibiting at HYPE gallery @ the Arts House (until 3 aug) or at our very spanking new National Library, The Promenade, 5th level (until 21 aug)
from now till 31 december 2005, for every print work sold, 30% of net proceeds will be donated to The Business Times Budding Artists Fund, initiated by The Arts House, which aims to enable underprivileged children and youth to pursue their aspirations to develop their artistic talents in music, dance, theatre, visual arts and theatre production.
our forestprints ART section is finally up! yeah! i’m still working on adding many more drawings and paintings done by me, which will be added in these few weeks
i’ve not stated before, but the ART section not only comprises of small paintings done by me, but also stuff from my dad. he works under his mandarin name ~ ruikun. well, my dad’s an artist, since.. forever.. i love his obsessive pen drawings, which have a nature theme to them. he’s mostly an abstract painter but does a few sculptures now and then, an art collector, chinese antique curator, and gallery owner.
i was suppose to have started work on his website long ago… but it was just impossible to squeeze out anymore time for this extra project… sorry dad…
oh, and i’m not going crazy or anything, mao… so don’t worry lady.. my mood may be crankier than normally permitted for these few weeks.. so sorry about that… i’ve had to deal with more than handful of jerks, tricky customers and anal issues, in addition to design work, forestprints wholesale orders and some major hiccups… things seem to like to foul up all together at the same time.. and then you’re reminded yet again that.. heck.. that’s the way the real world works.. everyone for themselves and no one will give shit about you if they’re not going to be benefitting from you in some way or the other… not everything is “ooh you’re so nice! ooh i love you! ooh i’d be so glad to help! ooh no problem at all!” blah blah blah…. actually most times they aren’t like that at all… and many times when it seems to be like that, it’s mostly empty words which aren’t sincere and mean nothing… so ‘whack’ wake up time again lynda..
anyhow.. i’ve another surprise coming up! so i’m excited about that.. and i’ll keep up on thinking positive today… hope i don’t lost control and snap or anything…
