This is a set of icons which i made for the previous theme. These icons are randomly made based on the original Sony's icon set. Actually, it includes Games, Network, TV, Video, Photos, Settings and musics, but the Network and Settings will be added later. The game menu only contains a "G", which is simplified of games. I first intend to draw a big gamepad, but then i figure out it would be inappropriate since this is a console gamepad already. Therefore i chose to use only a G to materialize the meaning. Also, the video icon contains 2 eyes balls, which i made so that it can express the meaning of video fully.

PSP them

This is my new entry. It is all about the psp. Above is a theme used as background for my psp(portable play station). PSP is a game console, which is very small and contains many great games. I'm interested in making new themes for my psp. This theme has no meaning at all. It just consists of lots of breaking fragments and a space for icons. When i made this one, i got a very strong feeling for glasses and fragile things. Therefore i decide to make it look a lot scarry and stuff. In the next entry, i will put a set of icons i make for this theme.

New entry

This is my book cover for assignment 2b. I have created this after several attempt and retry. The front cover is somewhat simple. I didn't put any complicated materials in it. In my opinion, the front cover doesn't need to be complex. We can put the most simple image to describe certain things. The foot prints, in the original, has been changed to the shoes prints, to make it more effective. Also, in the back cover, i have completely changed the whole theme, which the previous one was, somehow blank and unprofessional. This new back cover was taken from the idea of gathering up many scrapped papers into one place, or the piece of the puzzle. Lastly, the typeface i used here is san-serif, which emphasizes the formality and the seriousness of this type of book.

P/s:I don't know why but the image's colours was awful. It only happens when i upload it into the blogspot server. I'm trying to solve it out.

This is my new entry. I named the picture above "City of the stars", which depicts a strong field of stars on the night sky. I used mask technique to blend 2 objects, which are the city and the night sky together. Although i tried my best, the city below doesn't blend very well with night sky. The city still looks like it comes from a fake bad comic. Probably this is due to the inappropriate light adjustment.

This is the montage work which i made for my assignment. The work itself is simple, with only 8 objects blend together to create the meaning i want to define. The main concept in this montage is "lonely". The picture of a man with his head down provides a very solitary feeling. The man looks lonely with just 1 candle and a gift on the single table in the room. The room is rather big, while the candle just barely light the room. The feeling itself is isolated. Beside, a family's old photo behind him is just half hanging, while it is in black and white. The man is single, and completely isolated. He doesn't have anything for himself, not even a relative left. He wants to give the gift for someone, but he doesn't have any. He himself was covered by the dark atmosphere in the corner of his own dream.


Lately, i have been trying in blending and manipulating stuff. The picture above is a result of several attempts in creating a distort face. The original photo which i based on can be found here .
The concept behind this work is about the devastation of time, the abstract meaning of each part of a face. The original photo itself has been changed and recreated several times. The eyes were made from 2 screw objects while the mouth was replaced by a zip. We can see a real eye beyond the "mask". The face itself is like a real face as well as a mask wearing by the woman. It is like a barrier of lies and tricks to prevent the outside get in. The mouth was zipped and her mind was seal, she cannot communicate with the outside world and otherwise.
