Loving my new header? Wait till you see the full illustration...
|Her iconic 'pouty lips and the bridge under the nose' style of drawing. And ooh, let's not forget the eyes!|
It's an illustration of me by the most talented, Dura Hana! Ever since my early days of beginning to be active online, I noticed Dura's drawings and illustrations all over the net. And sometimes I would see her artworks at bazaars and flea markets in Kuala Lumpur too. And, gosh, I don't know a single person who does not like her work! She's and abstract artist hailing from Malaysia, and also a hijabi too!
I've been collecting her fashion-na-nimals drawings and postcards of her drawing that were distributed at Urbanscapes two years ago.. and I never stopped there..hehe.. You know how I love and appreciate every single drawing you readers made of me, and I cherish them all... I'm gonna frame them one by one soon too. SO I figured, hey, I haven't had any illustration of me by my most favorite artist of all. Hence, I contacted Dura and asked for a commisioned piece. And she agreed to it--YAY!! I'm so excited to be having her illustration of me, I feel like hugging it in my sleep with me! :p
|Carlos clearly wants to take over this blog -..-"|
Dura's moving to Mauritius for good soon, but she still accepts commisioned/freelance works for illustrations, patterns and abstract paintings. But I'm not sure of the postage cost. That you'll have to enquire her within.
