One month ago while I was visiting Berlin, I was invited to participate into a live digital graphics battle held between the West Berlin Gallery and Le Cafe Dune, Paris.
Participants from each gallery had 30 minutes to make an illustration from scratch, while the work and progress of both was projected on the wall, and also streamed live online! It was a sweet blessing knowing I had some people across the world following me live!
It was a very fun experience, not as stressful as I thought it would be - maybe I had relaxed a bit more after a couple of mojitos...!
The result and appreciation comes really from the faces, excitement and clapping of the people.
For more pictures and to see the illustrations that the other participants produced, you can have a look at West Berlin's Gallery Facebook page.

My creative mission of the week is customising some new plain and cheap shoes I bought!
You will need:
1. a cheap pair of shoes (especially if you are not sure how they will turn out)
2. textile markers which are used to draw on fabric
4. sketchpads or paper
and last but not least...
I first made some drafts on paper and I started drawing onto the shoes after I felt confident that I knew approximately the design that I would do. After the drawing is complete, it only takes few minutes to iron them so that the color is sealed and they are machine washable.
And here you go... new custom wundercloud shoes!
