Sparks! Art Wellness

At the end of 2017, Moses had the privilege of being part of a pilot art residency in nursing homes. He spent 10 sessions at a nursing home creating art with 10 seniors there – from building up unique faces to dressing these characters up, painting the background and making the furniture, and finally giving voices to these characters at their imaginary Happy Kopi place.

All these will culminate in an exhibition in Raffles City from 9 to 18 March 2018 together with artwork from other seniors.

Bow WOW

Have a happy Chinese New Year!

(This was put together using a number of apps on the iPad. The dog with the faux paper cutting pattern using Inkpad, then using Procreate to add the smile, and Pic Collage for the background and Spark Post for the text. Photo in the background was taken last Saturday morning just before starting a 3-hour lesson.)

Bobo on Kindle

Bobo, a picture book that also comes with an illustrated recipe for Bobo Chacha, was written and illustrated by Moses. It is now  available on Amazon for Kindle.

(Unfortunately, Kindle books are not available for Singapore-registered Amazon accounts. Hopefully it will be soon. Only 13 Kindle stores for now, including US, UK and Japan.)

Separately, Moses also now has an Author Page at Amazon Author Central.

Stickers

IMG_6755

Was playing around with creating these emoji ice cream cones – the idea for this mash-up came from it being Emoji Day and Ice Cream Day.

When I shared them with Adam, he suggested that I consider selling them as Line stickers. With a quick search, I ended up trying the Mojilala site to do this. It was a fairly painless and rather quick process.

What happens after this? To be honest, I still do not know. It is fun playing and learning. I do like this set of emoji ice cream cones – charmingly cute, aren’t they?

These were created using the Inkpad app.

A Delightful Decade

pauseability was registered with ACRA on 1 May 2007. So, today marks the 10 year milestone.

A good juncture for some reflections, thanksgiving and celebrations. Happy 10th birthday pauseability!

Truly grateful to God for the journey. And to my family, friends, partners and clients, thank you for the wonderful support in all these years.

Looking forward to even more pauseability in the days ahead.
