Digital ArtTempt

I turned the drawing into a digital form and tadaa!!

Self-taught is so slow... I got ideas but my skill is so limited. But it's okay, nothing to lose. Orang kata, pelan-pelan... Saya percaya Tuhan pasti tolong.
Saya ada banyak stamp yang perlu diukir dalam 2-3 hari ini. Mudah-mudahan saya mampu menyiapkannya walaupun sekarang saya rasa sangat nervous.

Stamp dan Sedikit Omelan

I manage to complete 3 more stamps. Complete means; siap diukir, nicely-mounted dan telah selamat sampai ke tangan pemiliknya.

Look at Mamat's face. It's only about the size of my thumb. Hahahahaha... Aku boleh picit ko Mamat hanya dengan satu jari.

Save-the-date stamp for one of my ex-collegemate. Gambar kucing berkasih-kasihan tu dia cedok dari internet. Not my drawing.

Carving the curly "Sylvester & Grace" was challenging. I know it was going to be tricky and time consuming for a that type of font especially when it is small, tapi bila Grace request ~ I agree jugak!

When it come to wordings, I always think it is the hardest part. Sometimes the font can be as small as size 10 or 8, depending on the design. And the most painful fact is that I'm carving on erasers! I mean, how big erasers can be? Sometimes I question myself, why do I have to force myself with this torturing thing? The wordings are the most excruciating of all.
But of course, only God knows how self-satisfying it is when everythings turn out well. It make me feel like.... Aaahhhhhhh..... I can't explain it.
Sudah banyak kali, hubby ask me, "Benda yang saya suruh buat tu U dah setelkan dah?". Apalagi yang boleh saya jawap? Belum. Baru menguruskan anak dan chores dan sedikit design stamp, hari sudah petang.
Hubby cuma geleng2, I know he's dissapointed. But I am dissapointed too.

Frankly, stamp-carving gave me satisfaction but overall, kepala saya tidak tentu arah sekarang.

Tak mengapa, saya kuat. Saya akan hadapinya!

Taip taip. Delete delete.

English is so foreign that when people talk to me, I always answer back in Malay or rojak. Tapi bila difikir-fikirkan balik, why should I be ashamed? I am Malaysian kan.
Many times I think I spent too much time trying to compose a blog post in English, but when I think it all over again, I took too much time composing in Malay either. Taip taip taip. Delete delete delete.


Dear honorable readers,

I am so sorry to announce that I won't be able to accept
incoming orders anymore.
I cannot take orders for business cards & stickers too.

I am taking this opportunity to clear off pending jobs.

I will try my best to reply all unreplied emails ~ eventhough you're already so pissed off
for the long wait
