I am extremely busy...Few graphic job needed my attention, urgently . I also in the midst doing the binding and silkscreen of 10 small and 10 medium books for Vienna Architecture Exhibition.

I will participate in 2 Bazaars before fasting month; I am invited to participate in Mini Bazaar at Publika this Sunday. Will be located at Art Row, so pls dropby if you are free. Just a mini one, much smaller scale compare to Fuyoh Art Bazaar. But I am quite excited...

Me and Lina will also be involved in a Charity Bazaar on the 7th July 2012, next Saturday at Chow Foodcourt @ The Weld. The proceeds will go to Palestinian Orphans under the care of The National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training, the largest Palestinian NGO in Lebanon. Entrance tickets priced at RM20 are for adult purchase; and persons below 18 years come in free. The tickets sold are redeemable for 2 meals, 2 drinks.

You could bring along your family and friends, and Shop to Share! There'll be plenty of food stuff, clothing items and accessories, cosmetic products, perfume, jewelry, health foods, alternative therapies, toys, books, CDs and DVDs, trinkets and souvenirs and many more. Conjunction with fasting month, this bazaar was purely for charity to support Palestinian Kid financial support for fasting

I am also looking forward for LittleSyam Book Binding Workshop at Fabric Fanatics on 14 & 15 July, and I am extending another day offering the same slot on Sunday since I am going to take a long break on August and only will have another workshop again on September.

Mission Accomplished

It's been a great day at Fuyoh Art Bazaar. It felt like a gathering where I met up old friends from my previous jobs and student time, crafter friends and many students from book binding workshop. It was all worth while and I forgot that I am only sleeping few hours last night.

I am surrounded by many babies today. Lily dropby with Ahboy,
I felt like to bite her chubby cheek whenever I saw him. Vivian,
student from workshop dropby and she bring her two girls along...
It was so good to see her again after so long.

I love Sunday, been sleeping half of the day to recharge my energy ... and now awake to finish up the Spell Book for Harry potter birthday party theme's door gift to be delivered tomorrow. After my workshop yesterday, I went to Publika to deliver my dolltopia to Locus..yeaay someone bought the owl right away after I delivered them..Happy:)

Went to Mid Valley to meet Lina after that and pass her Our Adventure book and Gegurl she had ordered. Lina, Eita and me went for fabric shopping at Kamdar, and the damage is over RM300. I always crazy about fabric and never had enough... we then had a chit chat while having nasi kerabu at Belanga, not realize that time are running late.

Had a blast day yesterday, interesting session I had at KDU. 25 students came and I had a great time. Thanks to KDU especially to Pouline and HC Foo for their initiative to organize series of Zakka Workshops, from June to August. Foods they served are yummy too..

All students came are full of passion and I hope they had enjoyed learning the skill.. Till we meet again...Thanks to Eita for the assistance. Have  great Sunday all//syam

hello there

I am so looking forward for my workshop at KDU this weekends. I had 25 students registered. Within 3 hours time I'll be teaching them how to bind using Kettle Stitch method... I gave them a kit that can make a cute book size measured 3" x 4" but the cover for every individual book will be personally hand silkscreen by me.. will share this with all of you soon.

I am sending my stuff again at Locus Publika this weekend. I am happy for  a really good response from their customer for my products. Here I share some of the thing I produced recently, and some might be sent to their outlet this weekend.

I finally managed to finish up Our Adventure Book, a commission job from Lina for Amir & Jehan as a wedding present. If you noticed the font used are different from what Curt & Precious's Our Adventure Book from my previous post.

Book of Spells

Been running around to get this book done. My printer machine gone kaput, the silkscreen option seems impossible, so I am sending for a digital printing, loves the detail of illustration.

I am handling the printing part and the binding....but the process to get it done was so tedious with the self hand cut and get the paper right.

I am waiting for client to pass me the quill before making a hole for binding...Will share with all of you the final outcome soon. These binding job done for Jokee, the deal done online, never met her personally, but she gave me link to her beautiful website Check her out for theme party especially involve your small one:)

Have a great day everyone..//syam
