Geeky Baju featured in an upcoming exhibition of Malaysian artists!

Hello friends, especially those based in Kuala Lumpur. I have exciting news to share:

Invitation to the launch of Artikarya, an artist incubation and art reproduction platform.

Invitation to the launch of Artikarya, an artist incubation and art reproduction platform.

Artikarya is an artist incubation and art reproduction platform, supported by Yayasan Hasanah. Over the past year I’ve been involved with it as one of the first batch of artists.

As part of the exhibition, I'll have Geeky Baju pieces for sale as 18x24" giclée prints, each in a limited edition of 10. These come tagged and authenticated with RFID labels. They're archival, gallery quality, and have stunning colour accuracy - Wesley, the master printer at Ilford, showed me how to use his system to proof and calibrate so the prints are exactly as I envisioned them. The first time I've worked so closely with a fine art printer! When the platform launches this Saturday you will be able to purchase them online if you’re interested.

Some of the other artists' works have been reproduced on canvas or rare hand-made washi paper; it's really quite amazing to see.

The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture will be officiating the launch. You’ll need to RSVP at the Eventbrite page before coming.

Hope to see you there!

Now on Patreon!

Join me on Patreon where I’ll be sharing the development of Kejora and The Geeky Baju Project! As a patron, you get to see works-in-progress, including sketchbook pages and story drafts:

You’ll also be able to shape upcoming stories and art - there’s a poll right now where patrons vote on the next Geeky Baju set. And depending on which tier you pledge at, you have additional access to resources on Southeast Asian culture and being a freelance illustrator, wallpapers, postcards, and original studies.

Tiers begin at $1, $4, $10, and $25 respectively; you can pledge any amount and change tiers at any time.

Because patrons receive updates directly from creators, you'll get to see all the content unlike on platforms like Facebook or Instagram where algorithms often determine which posts are visible.

I’m excited to create more personal work this year together with your input. Here’s to this journey!
