Maybe it's because I'm 25 but this year just feels pivotal. I feel like I've done a lot these last few months, or at least more than I have other years. But at the same time I also feel like I've done nothing at all, maybe because I've been sick and recovering at home without going out much it feels like my life has been put on hold. Or maybe because for the first time in a long time I'm enjoying my job so time is just gliding by.
Well anyway, here's what I've been up to this month.
Paola and Ignacio of Tangram studio were organizing a pop-up shop during Basel and invited me to send over a few drawings to sell. These were the drawings I sent them. If you're ever interested in buying some originals of the drawings I make, email me! They're really reasonably priced artworks that will make your home extra lovely, promise.
streetstyle looks I saw during Art | Basel Vernissage night which were published by TheWanderlister+.
CN Square which is a 4 floor stationery Mecca on Nathan Rd., with one whole floor dedicated to art supplies. That trip I got some Chinese ink paper, watercolour, acrylic and other bits and bobs. Made this sketch when I got home, I think it looks rather like my idea of Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby book.
Society 6 store, I'll be updating the store each week with new ZigWisdom sketches as I make them. If you would like any iPhone cases, cards or prints please get them here, I would be ever grateful for your support.
simple machine where you sprinkle in starter culture into your milk carton and then leave overnight. Here I'm having it with some blueberries and honey, nectar of the gods.
M+ Inflation Sculpture Garden is ridiculously good. If you don't go you are missing out on some joyous, gigantic, international inflatable artworks. On until June 9, 2013, run!
Louise Fili book on British Modern graphic design and type. I'm such a huge fan of her work and of the Hong Kong Public Library. They actually bought in two books I suggested and then emailed me to tell me, Bad Girls Go Everywhere and The Best of Everything, but someone took them both out before I had a chance to, rude.
Kubrick Bookshop and Cafe. Beautifully curated books on art, literature, design all with the best book covers. Lots of amazing Hong Kong published books there as well.
Who says Hong Kong isn't creative! Thank you for a wonderful month of May universe. Happy half 2013 everyone!
