Little Bo Peep celebrating CNY and Valentine’s Day

These are the two paintings I did not long ago. It’s goat/sheep/lamb year for 2015 to the Chinese. I painted two, a male and female Bos dressing up themselves in a sheep costume. This year, two important days were falling on a same period, the set of paintings can be a greeting for the Chinese New Year as well as Valentine’s Day. 

I never painted a sheep before, so I took my little white miniature schnauzer, Smallie, as my reference, you can see his fur, look exactly like a little sheep;) Each painting is 36×36 inches, acrylic on canvas.

Bo on Vacation

After rushing some projects, I took two weeks break and enjoy my holiday in Europe Autumn last year. Of course, I brought Bos along, that time only Cream Ori Bo and Blue Scaley Bo :) These are some of the places we went, mostly in France, England and Scotland. They seem to enjoy the trip as much as I do! I left Ori and Scaley in Aberdeen with the local friends as a gift for offering us a nice place to stay. I hope Bos are living a good life and bring happiness to our friends ;)

The Furry Thing Series

The Furry Thing Series is a illustration series started a few years back. So far I have drawn a few animals and some furry monsters. I only use black artline pens, 0.1 or 0.2 are the ones used to shade the fur one by one. I still have many more in my sketch book which I haven’t really have time to ‘shade’ due to busy schedule and sometimes, procrastination, haha. Below are the ones posted on social medias. Personally signed art prints are also available at Outdated, Publika, Kuala Lumpur and boandfriends.etsy.com

From top to bottom: Kitty No.1, Kitty No.2, Kitty No. 3, Kitty No. 4 (Love Yourself More), Squirrel, Monsters Comma, Monster Question and Monster Exclamation

Kitty No.3 is being shared and liked more than thirty thousands time on:

Bo celebrates Mid Autumn festival 

Mid Autumn festival is one of the most important festivals for Chinese. In Malaysia, since my childhood time, all our family members will gather around for the celebration. Mooncake, lantern, Chinese tea and other nostalgic traditional snacks are some of the must-have items. In my primary school, there was a lantern making competition annually. 

Traditionally, we use bamboo sticks or wire to make the frame, to wrap the frame, you can choose to use rice paper, plastic translucent colour paper or cloth, and finally paint the lantern with patterns and motifs. Usually the competition is part of the celebration in the school, it’s called ‘Moon Light Party’ or ‘Mid Autumn Evening Party’ where everyone gather and share their food and lanterns, almost every tree were decorated with candle lit paper lanterns. 

That’s how we celebrated in the olden days before all the battery lit plastic lanterns were introduced. However, I’m a old school people so I still kinda like the nostalgia way of celebration and lantern making. I still remember how my teacher taught us in the primary school art class. I have made one sample and its making process and instructions for Bo’s fans to download and try, see the pictures below, and you can try it in the next Mid Autumn festival :)

Plush Fruity Bo

I posted this on Bo&Friends FB last year. These are some plush Bo prototype my fabricator did for me some time ago. They are Pineapple Bo, Watermelon Bo and Strawberry Bo. Pineapple Bo is always the Sharpest, Watermelon the Coolest and Strawberry the Sweetest! The feed back on FB was kinda overwhelming, I hope one day I can produce real ones for you to adopt :)
