08 was a pretty good year for me. I would said it's more like a "Dream come true" Year as I did things which I never expected I would had done, such as Adobe CS 4 Release, involving in Exhibition in Asia countries (such as China and Taiwan) and most of all had couple of designs printed on tee in renowned site.
I guessed I had achieved my 08 resolutions by bringing more good artworks and designs to you whom like it.
Of coz I know I couldn't had done it without the many supports and votes from the folks here which is you, you and you. Yes you too. Thanks a million.
New Year Resolution for this 2009
1) Most important will be doing more exercise & keeping fit, I find myself getting fatter and fatter each day. Haha. For the past 35040 hours, I spent 60% of the times which is 21024 hours sitting in front of this screen, drawing and drawing and without doing much exercise except for my hands and brain. Hope I can really do something about this. I guess most artist and designer have to do something about it … lol
2) To get more designs printed on Tee I guess..
3)More Collaboration work ( Especially those who are in the waiting list , you know who u are. ha)
09 are going to be a pretty tough year due to recession and I’m already feeling the tension of it. Anyway, here’s just a few resolutions and goals for me to aim (* although I don’t quite follow it most of the times :D)…
Resubmitted my panda design in Uneetee (* Register if you had not)

I did this illustration and a tutorial for Adobe Illustrator CS 4 a few months ago
and it's up for download now. This is the first time I'm using AI to make illustration
so it might look stiff and .... you know what i mean. Ha~!
Anyway , It really an honor for an amateur illustrator like me to involve in project by
the "Godfather of Design industry", Adobe and be the first few to trial out the program. Really have lots of fun. :D
You can go to www.adobe.com/products/illustrator/howto/ to download different tutorials by various artists.
