3D Installation piece for TUMI SG / HK. Inspiration of the piece is based on “Voyage”, a journey or expedition from one place to another. This is my first time adding physical element to 3D anamorphic art. Hope to explore more the next time.

As part of OIC’s challenge to its Portrait After Dark participants to have fun and to draw and think “different” – Lilian suggested that we can organise a special session to get enough drawings to make an illustrated zoetrope. A total of 26 artists participated and many wonderful portraits from very angle were produced.
Lilian kindly enlisted her friends to help her record the process via video and photographs and also to “stitched” all the collected drawings together.
Here is the final video
Here is the “making-of” video
Special thanks to:
Lillian Lee – for the conducting the “experiment” with us and for buying all the drawings too!

Momorobo (aka MMRB) was invited by Tiger Beer and Kult to be a part of Tiger Translate in Sydney. It’s a unique event which brings together international artists from both the East and West to work collaboratively on an artwork. Australia was represented by local artists Beastman, Numskull, Creepy, Phibs and Matt Stewart while the international contingent was represented by Singapore and Shanghai collective Momorobo (aka MMRB), Mongolian artist Lhagvaa Enkhbat, and South Korean artist Junkhouse.
We collaborated with emerging Mongolian artist Lhagvaa Enkhbat (who won the 2011 Tiger Translate competition in Mongolia) at Name This Bar in Sydney on a large scale wall mural a day before the Tiger Translate event. We did paste ups of our Tiger-inspired skyline illustrations while Lhagvaa filled the skies with Mongolian motifs.
On the official event itself, we went head to head with Babekuhl, a Sydney design collective with OHP Ping Pong, using old school overhead projectors, acetate and black markers. Each of us spent about 15-20min adding a layer of graphics onto each other’s work, whilst they were projected live onto a giant white wall for the crowds to witness. The result is a series of interesting, eye-catching collaborative pieces. In a day of digital innovations where computers are replacing pen and paper, it is refreshing to see old school technology charm a discerning young audience of creative people.
We really had a blast and definitely were thrilled to be a part of an event like this, meeting and collaborating with artists from lots of different locations and backgrounds. I’ll love to give a big shout out to Steve Lawler, Tanya Wilson from Kult and all at Tiger Beer for this amazing opportunity!

MOMOROBO (also known as MMRB) is a collective of creatives ( Sally, Morris, Eric and Terence ) based in Shanghai and Singapore and in their own words, “runs on Xiaolongbao and Hainanese chicken rice.” An analogue creative team, the crew have worked with likes of Nike, adidas Originals, and Tiger Beer, and their hyperactive design aesthetic and future thinking art and designs solutions see them as rising stars of the Shanghai creative scene, recently invited to be one of this year’s juries for New York Art Directors Club Young Guns. Their works are also featured in various offline and online publications such as Asian Graphics Now!, CNN Go, Vision Magazine, Dazed Digital, ComputerArts, Faesthetic and the Pictoplasma Character Encyclopedia.
“MessyMsxi’s Breakfast Barter” is my most recent personal project, it is an interactive concept, whereby visitors can draw their ideal breakfast or a breakfast representation on the standard template which I prepared, in exchange for one of my breakfast postcard. Despite the project being non-profitable, the biggest reward was having our roles swapped; it was the visitors illustrating their breakfast for me. This approach has allowed me to connect friends and strangers over the subject of breakfast, which I deeply enjoy.
Below are images taken during my second breakfast barter, to view more of my first breakfast barter you can check it out here .
I have recently created a MessyMsxi Facebook page where I can more easily share updates of my work and activities with public, so “like” it if you’d like to hear more from me : facebook.com/MessyMsxi
11.11.11 was another eventful Portrait After Dark session! Great vibe! Great crowd and Great music!
We really salute the parents who braved the sound and crowd to pose for us with their little ones! We are also very blessed with artists who participated and make the best use of the tight space – they can draw standing up or sitting on the floor. And of course- nothing happens without dedicated helpers – seasoned illustrators who forgo drawing for the evening but just help out with running the show! We are looking forward to the next great drawing session – 9th Dec 2011! See you there!
