IF: Toy

It's been a while since I've done a piece for IF, so here's my comeback piece :D This week's word is toy!  Fun memories of childhood come to mind :D  We had lots of toys when I was a kid and most (or all) were gifts.  I knew I had this one barbie, just one and I would sew clothes for her (out of socks and stockings!) and our toys all had birthdays and we'd celebrate them with cupcakes.  We even took pictures of it. So fun :) I'd love to be a kid again!

Fun Fact: This mother and daughter tandem is also the same one from this illustration. :)


Last year I quit my job and around February I started freelancing.  I got the sense of accomplishment that I never felt doing programming.  Not so much satisfaction financially and although it is unstable and nerve-wracking I still feel it is the best decision I've made.  Gone are the days when I hated waking up to go to work.  The only trouble is, I have to actively look for projects and balance my time wisely.  To other freelancers out there, how do you keep the projects coming? Any tips for a newbie like me?

Okay enough rambling, here are some of the projects I've been up to since Feb :)

This is a set of  around 50 images commissioned by Edventure Books (Singapore).

 This is also commissioned by Edventure Books.  It's a 7-page book for early readers, written in Mandarin.

Sneak peak of an ongoing project.  This one is the hardest yet just because I'm not used to Illustrator and because the files are huge! Backdrops, banners and flags for a project launch event.

That's it :) Here's to more projects to come! :D
