Gonna say a very BIG thank you to my colleague, Huey who awarded me this award! 

Thank You!

  3. Nominate 5 other Malaysian blogs which demonstrate some form of creativity
  4. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post
  5. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog, and if possible, make sure they follow these 6 steps too!
  6. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received your award

The logo

My source of inspiration
  • Music : Plays the most important role in all my creative process! Well, normally when i am lost, I will load up itunes and blast my room with all sorts of music while i think of the concept and ideas. There are times, when I would stare at the mesmerizing visualizer in iTunes to look for inspiration for my motion stuff - no i am not joking. Seriously i can stare at them for at least 30mins. 
  • Movies : Since I am in multimedia, my work involves movies production too. So there is no reason why movies shouldn't be in my top 5 list. :P In fact, it is my lecture's advice. WATCH MORE MOVIES! Movies are my companion while i work on my work and to keep me awake as i work through the night till dawn. And normally I work a whole lot better when Pride and Prejudice is playing - i know it is not the world best CGI movie nor is it the most interesting movie, but i just love Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy!
  • Internet : One of the best source of inspiration! I normally spend a lot of my time over at DeviantArt looking at other people's artwork and also through people's comment on my artwork to get myself inspired and stay creatively connected to the world . Besides that, blogging and reading other people's blog can be just as inspiring too! and not to mention, Facebook can be pretty inspiring and fun. 
  • Long Hot Shower : the best place to think as well! ahahha just when the hot water is  streaming down from my head to my whole body, that's when I feel all fresh and all my stress washes away with the water and that's the time I seek for fresh new ideas! Oh I have a friend who once shared with me his way of seeking his inspiration is by sitting in the toilet, like The Thinker by Auguste Rodin and I couldn't agree with him more. Sometimes, the worst time and place, can be the most inspiring one. :P 

imagine him sitting on the toilet seats doing his business
  • Friends and Family: Last but not least, my family and friends are the most important people in my life. With their continues support and love, my compassion and loves in art comes from them as well. And whenever i am stress, emo and lost, they are always there for me to rant and listen to me. Thanks! 
Now, here's the list of my nominees for this award : 

  • Under18Carbon - my friend from uni. One of the most creative person in my class and I love all his vectors and respect his patience in doing them. His vectors are really really superb! You just have to check out his gallery especially if you love cars (lamborghini to be exact) and guitars!
  • PotatoNation - he's my cousin bro. What can i say.... his graffiti art speaks volume and his latest being the backdrop for AVIMA (Asian Voize Independent Music Award) 2009! Love his graffiti and what he do! if you are in Penang, and stumble upon any graffiti artwork with a green monster, that's his work. Good luck bro! Keep up the good work!
  • Ind Elwen Tinuviel - my best friend since high school. Her work is simple, minimalist but NICE! love her fashion design especially! 
  • RyanScent - my photography kaki and also a colleague of mine. She specialized in couple and fashion shots and they are good. Do remember to check her blog.
  • Qilayout - another coursemate of mine and like me, he's an apple fan but even geekier and more fanatic. haha But most importantly, he's creative too. Love his card designs which you can buy from Check out his site too! 
I guess, i have come to an end of my post. I have to get back to my work that is pilling up....

Wish me luck and hopefully I won't die of stress just yet ....
