I’m really excited to announce that the official BlytheconSG imagery for 2017 is ready! I would say it’s 99% done though I might make more changes or add more elements to her but we’ll see. For now, I think I’m good. This is really an exciting collab because I get to work with the super talented Peithedragon. We see a cute baby face of a Blythe doll here interpreted and painted by Pei. I just can’t get over how adorable that face is! She had to paint the mascot bald so that I could add in flowers and greenery elements with a dash of candy in it later. There is a little pathway right above the BlytheCon text leading to a door shining with light, like a magical doorway to our beautiful garden city. You could see a bit of the Singapore skyline consisting of Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Art Science Museum and the Singapore Flyer beyond that door.
The theme is “City in a Garden”. Singapore, known as a garden city, was meant to provide comfortable, clean and green environment to Singaporeans and tourist. Our gardens were planned so that our city’s temperature could be kept as low as possible from the tropical heat as we are basically sitting on the equator. These gardens are now almost inter connected and creates an attractions not only for Singaporeans but also impresses the tourist.This is a joint achievement by the Singapore government and her people. We are therefore proud to announce that we have green spots in our little red dot.
All the rushing, planning, logistics, sleepless nights trying to churn out art and cute stuff to sell at STGCC 2014, seems all too familiar. Once again, Caramelaw was back at STGCC 2014 show casing my art dolls, custom toys and new merchandises. It was really fun returning back to STGCC after being under the radar for 4 years. Seeing artist friends and happy fans gather at the one event that makes all of us unite is simply delightful.
Set up was relatively easy, all the candy elements were up and busking in their rainbow glory in no time. The crowds gathered and marveled at the custom Caramelpops dolls and custom Kobito Dukan Rainbow Buddies customs. There were also new merchandises, including canvas prints, bag charms, key chains, new poster and postcard designs and a new paper puppet. Click for art also sent us some merchandise all the way from UK, including cushion covers, sweat shirts, pouches and eye mask. Lots to see and time to spend some money!
I’ve got wonderful help once again from Agent Cuddlesome, a.k.a the manager of Candy land and my loving candy man to mend the booth with me. There were many exhibtiors this year and I was particularly excited about Instinct Toys. Managed to grab a hold of the new Jack O Latern in Glitter pink and silver, all thanks to the loving boyfriend. What a sweet surprise. Swoon!
There were some familiar faces – Gold Zinyin here was at my booth 4 years ago and she was back again for more candy art. So sweet of her! Many friends and family dropped by to show their support. I also did some doodling at the doodle wall sponsored by Sharpie, rocking the black ink with the Band of Doodlers. Lots of fun interacting with people and curious minds who wanted to know more about me and my candy art. It was such a pleasure speaking to everyone who came to the convention. It was a blast having to experience all the buzz and cosplayers and I’ll certainly be back soon!
“My army of cheerful monsters, dolls, even hot tea surrounds me but nothing distracts this emptiness away. My heart too swollen to be placed back to where it belongs. But I know, time will heal. ” I’m proud to present to you DepthCORE’s latest chapter, “TIME”.
My piece is titled “Time will heal”. Its a sad piece of artwork but I had so much fun creating it. For those whos got your heart broken, my candy monsters (and me) just wants you to know that everything’s gonna be ok. 🙂 For more info please visit DepthCORE.
