Our finalized elephant gate without the car changes.
We finally finished the wall. It was painful, difficult but in the end we just gaped at it for long periods of time. Feeling every ounce of pride our 5 feet bodies could allow.
Multiple walls of art.
And it even continues to the next wall. Note that we left out the kid’s corner. lol.. damn.
Continuing art on the other side of the wall. with a little yellow bird.
That’s a close up of how it looks like from perspective view.
Vinn and I started to work our magic on the final wall.
With that wall done, we started to work on the other wall. We quickly divided jobs. Vinn was to work on the horse and the milkman and I would fix everything else.
Painting the building and beer stripes is alot of work. Plus the cart too!
I finished the cart easily with Matthew’s base. I had a tough time working on the buildings cuz the colours were all wrong. In the end it worked out alright. When I worked on the beer stripes, Vinn was already pretty much done with the horse.
Vinn worked on the horse and milkman.
Vinn did an amazing job with the horse. Now comes the milkman.
Mr. Happy. I managed to paint Mr. Happy and crack Vinn up.
She blended and asked for me to help with the face. Yeh so I had plenty of experience working on portraits but I managed to fuck this up at an epic level. lol. The milkman look so ridiculously happy that Vinn could no longer work on it without cracking herself up. Lol. Ok for disclaimer’s sake, I blame it on the size! The brushes are too big for me to work on the details. Plus, if you notice, the milkman’s nipple is right on the switch. Fucking hell.
Vinn fix Mr. Happy.
Vinn could finally fix Mr. Happy. with geometric shapes just like in the mock up. lol.
I couldn't help but add some stuff there. OMG its just triangles.
Ok done. I added some eyes and mouth. Better than Mr. Happy. He is Mr. Nobody now. It’s all good. lol
The final mural. Done. Job Wrapped.
Phew. That’s all done. Looks awesome. Finally its a awesome job wrapped. Great experience and Vinn is really a pleasure to work with. Reminds me of our Uni days. Only that we are now shopping for groceries instead of make up and clothes. FOL
Paintlust official pix for the time. I guess
This would do too
We are now officially a team. and working on our company registration for my web design/dev stuff and her paintlust. Yes, Paintlust will nao be under Vinn Pang.
On other note, we are seeking like minded people to join our team. Preferably an all rounder when it comes to art, design and web. English proficient and outgoing, crazy and utterly passionate about ramping up Malaysia’s art & design scene. If you are interested, email me your portfolio and resume at email@example.com.
We are currently based in PJ, so if you are nearby that will be great. We will only be getting an office space sometime later in the year or early next year so for nao its home based.
Complete Carlsberg Wall Mural Series
Recently, Paintlust has been commissioned by Carlsberg for a wall mural. The project is huge, spanning across 3 walls. We prepared some mock ups for the walls, surprisingly the 2 main walls were approved immediately.
2 walls spanning across 20 feet wide and 9 feet high
However, the last wall did not have such luck. After 6 revisions we ended up with this rendition of the mock up.
and a corner for the kids to paint. Do we really need mock up for this?
All our gears and gadgets.
Our first night begins with the lines tracing with the help of a projector.
Vinn & Derek fooling around
The peeps at Carlsberg were helpful enough to bring some tables & chairs for us as well as loan us their projector. After we match the drawing to the rough guide on the wall, we started work immediately.
Vinn's serious side is so masculine.
Now, our job is slightly more complicated than just painting the wall. We have to line the walls and separate them into parts for the Carlsberg’s staffs and employees to paint. The event will be on their regular monthly Carlsberg Family Day event and this time, we are hosting it. How exciting! Gulp.
Something fun for the kids..
We line everything up, knowing that they will most probably paint over the lines and we would have to do it all over again anyway. But doing this gives the wall a more professional look. Just like a coloring book!
And for the adults, something more challenging
There are certain parts that are just lined with a blue chalk. At this point, we were both worried if they could make sense of what the fuck we just drew.
The graffiti part looks awesome at this point though!
Looks awesome, we were resisting the urge to put in some vibrant colours all the time. Black Nippon Paint is all we have for now.
And finally, the whole thing is done. The last wall unfortunately have to be completed by us, instead of sharing the process with the staffs.
Next – Carlsberg Family Day
Vinn emailed me this tutorial a week or two back but I was too busy and chaotic with my own problems (as usual-how many times did I escape recently). Well, here you go the tutorial for Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Read this
2 weeks ago, Vinn and I painted Mervyn’s wall at his house. We are thinking of setting up a team together called PaintLust for our wall painting projects and other paintings/art stuff as well. Read this
At this point of time, the only thing in my mind is career and family. But since my love life is so chaotic I wanna ask also. The thing is I can only ask 2 questions. Read this
Its been some time since we posted anything in the How to Pose series!
