Artwork: Rocking Together For Life

A group of five good friends together - blissful. This shows that friendship is a simple pleasure in life, but not everyone got this chance to be by a friend all the time. So treasure your times with friends.

This piece started off with Kyro asking me how to convert hand drawing to digital image. She drew some chibi like cartoons in pencil and wanted to scan into computer for further editing, like relining, colouring...etc. I thought of the Live Trace feature in Adobe Illustrator, but soon gave up on the idea as it dun work out as nice. So i suggested re drawing the whole picture in vector form in Illustrator instead.

She passed me a sample, and i did a demo for her:

Its suppose to be a drawing of The Gazette, a jRock band, which Kyro is a fan of. She took the weekend to complete the hand drawing of all five band members:

Except for the 4B peepz in VS, i dint meet any one in my life who can draw, (what i mean by "can draw" means at least produce a decent simple sketch of stuffs which in one look ppl know what u drawing). So i tot Kyro was quite talented, and help vectorised and put everything into a poster for her. Yup, and this artwork is of course dedicated to Kyro!

I myself know nuts about jRock (cos i prefer mRock more), so after illustrating the five members, i put them up in a nice background and added a tagline of my own - Rocking Together For Life, Cos We Are Lucky To Have Us. I conveyed the idea to Yue Ting, she was the one who tot of the whole tagline. Thanks Yue Ting! Not forgetting its suppose to be a chibi version of The Gazette, i added their names on the design.

Why "Rocking Together For Life"? Cos its smthing i want to have. I want my good friends to be with me... But a lot of times either they got other commitment or they dun treat me as a good friend. Thats why i so lonely...Every weekend got to cry at home myself. I hope one day i will be happy like the five ppl inside the pic.. Hope hope, but it will never come true. Depress...
