Proposed art pieces for ION that didn't run. Chair has to do with having everything at your fingertips from your armchair. The mecha one has to do with girls using mecha suits to carry all their heavy shopping bags in the future. Pen on paper with photoshop.
Artwork for the ION gallery along Orchard Rd. In case you were confused, the label for the picture at ION is incorrect. The correct label was supposed to be : Futurephone: Technology makes communication easier. There is more sensory information transfer as communication technology gets better. Now, not only do we just hear a voice on the other line, we now also see the other person. Perhaps in the future we may also feel what the person feels and thinks. It may be even better than talking face to face.
Sonny Liew is launching a brand new anthology of comics by South-East Asian talents. It's lauching in November and published by Image Comics. Artists include Sonny himself, Jon Foster, Charlene, Kuan and myself just to name a few. Check out the website for the previews.
