from doodles in Sadako tights series to Tokone Japan

It's like a dream come true for my random doodles in Sadako tights series to be actually realised and merchandised now! Thanks to Okamoto Kyouko, Nitta Kazumi for motivating me to make it happen. Shono Hiroaki from Ubies/Vision Track Japan for hooking me up with Tonoke Japan. And CK Koo for the styling/photography and Kuanth for photography to make these photos lovely.

Sophie Black X The Saponifist

Twas a girl with eyes of stark
Contradictions that invite remarks
Cobwebs of wild hair
Giggles with impish flair
Sophie Black, see you in the dark

A collaboration with The Saponifist, who specializes in formulating cold processsoaps that are free from synthetic additives with the best botanicals.

Thanks so much to Sin who had made this connection possible.

This wonderful handmade charcoal soap will be available at Fuyoh Art Bazaar @ Publika on 28th October 2012 and Saponifist's online store from 31 Oct 2012 onwards.

Sadako's tights series.

a special series inspired by Tsumori Chisato's autumn 2012 collection.
if you wonder what kind of nonsense written up there, please go to Sadako's unfashionable fashion diary for english translation. (yes i'm lazy to even cut and paste the translation from there to here...)

She has been left behind by me for a long time.

Catch it if you happen to be there... for me! :-)

Kuih-muih @ Open House Occupy

Kuih-muih has flewn all the way back from Paris, its first show at Cutlog Paris, to Tiong Baru to take part in the only Singapore art walk-about, Open House Occupy. I'm very glad to be given this opportunity by Alan Oei, the curator of Open House (OH!), because Kui-muih is created as a lucky charm that's supposed to be hung in a house for happy blessings. I'm so lucky to have it hung in Liz's cozy bedroom. I hope all my local audience will enjoy this lucky charm that's filled with many traditional snacks which have been giving us happy and sweet memories since childhood.

Other 14 artists who take part in this event are Ang Song Nian, Cindy Salim, Dilys Ng, Gilles Massot, Green Zeng, Isabelle Desjeux, Jying Tan, Lavender Chang, Marc Gabriel Loh, Mark Wong, Patrick Storey, Race Krehel, Stephen Black and Zhao Renhui.

OH! will be open from 4pm till 9pm on 18, 19, 25 and 26 February. The tour starts at Tiong Bahru Community Ctr, 67A Eu Chin Street. $15 tickets are sold at the door, and the last tour leaves at 8pm. Please visit the OH! website for more details.
