Updates for May.

The past beginning two weeks of May were occupied with part-time lecturing, ironing out some additional changes to the Manga figure and three 1/16 scale clay sketches for an upcoming commission with the Singapore Army Museum. Featured below are 2 out of the 3 initial proposals rendered in Super Sculpey Firm over a tight deadline of one week. As these are sketches, their sole function was for visualization. Minimal attention were paid to the details so that changes to the figure's pose could be 'painlessly' executed without any heart breaks.

And here are some excerpts from last Monday's dinner at the Seafood "Paradise" Restaurant located at Defu Lane 10. ( Taesung, I hope that you're reading this ;P)

Broccoli with scallops topped with bits of salted egg yolk.

.......and the Crab Vermicelli with Superior Stock is one to die for!!!

For just 'sketches' those figures are superb rendition of Singapore soldiers.

Calvin, The "sketches" are awesome. Are these sculptures for a museum display, or figures that will be marketed as gifts? I sure do admire your being able to work againsta deadline. It's not something I'm able to do well.~Gary

Thanks for the encouragement guys,

as predicted, there were some changes especially to the first figure.

Gary, the figures are preps for for 1/6 scale museum display. Whether they will be marketed as gifts remains to be seen.
