I am always fantasised by the idea of time. It's so powerful, it's overwhelming so today time it is. A grand after another falling down just like the time passing by second by second. So I found a good photo (Royalty free) on Stock Exchange that convey my idea.

Then I put it in Illustrator to put in some text. There are also many quotations on this subject as well. So I choose the one by Hector Louis Berlioz. And play around with the word and put another layer on top of the photo to produce deeper colours.

"Like Sands Through the Hourglass..."  by Photo by McKenna ( found in StockExchange


Tree has life. It needs caring to grow, to survive, to stay strong....................... So does human.

Everything has the beginning, when things is new and young, they are fragile, they need an caring environment to grow and develop. We have to take care of them, because they are our future.

Work done in Illustrator. Font colour is that of the leaf. Bold, bigger first letter to catch the attention. I want a lot of white space too.

I was wandering around everybody's blogs and inspired by the photograph that Thuy posted this week. A lot of ideas came up in my head. I felt the warmth hope and respectful care in the photograph. So I decided to do something with it.

I simply just put some text there. Really that's what I read from the image "Hope nurtured by love. Love warmed by hope". I hope the text does support the image. I used outer glow effect to give the text a kinda orange glow as a candle light to maintain unity and also the analogous color harmony.

Avatar for Dating Website

This week I have to submit the final assignment which is a Dating Website for Web Programming. I need to make 2 default avatars for newly signed-up members. So I made those two.

Both the idea and aesthetic are simple. I chose the heart for the face as this is a dating website. I use this face for both male and female avatar to maintain the unity of the whole site and add a few more details to distinguish the female and the male ones (eyes, tie, ribbon). Lastly, I dropped shadow for the two avatar to make it stand out and look more lively.
