Busy on Himapan

I bet most of my close friends know what I've been busy working on for the last 4 months. Actually it's no secret as the project will soon be known to the public. The project is the main reason for me to start blogging, because by doing so will help me get a better grip of the project especially on how far it's been done. Additionally getting some feedbacks from friends is quite crucial as well ;).

The project is about Himapan creatures. Some may wonder what the hell is "Himapan creatures". To get a better understanding, these are creatures which exist mostly in Asian literatures such as Garuda, Hongsa (Mythical Swan), and many other odd creatures.

The project started because I wanted Thai and foreigners to know more about Thai culture through Thai traditional arts. Although you will not only experience the traditional line art illustrations, but colorized figure paintings, futuristic line art design, along with original photograph and description of each creature will be included as well. There will be a total of 100+ creatures. Each will most likely have 3-5 illustrations. It's quite a big project for me.

But I have a partner who's helping me along with this project. This person can be no other but my long life soul mate ;) Gip.

Here are a few preliminary page layouts:

Stay tuned, I'll have more posted here soon.
