2011 Bible verse calendar.
Designed this originally for a friend.
Second photo is the actual print copy. Colors reflected on the print are not accurate because of the bad lighting in my room and my bad white balancing. The actual colors are very close to the first graphic.
This calendar is for sale and I will be taking orders over the next week if anyone is interested in having one.
Printed a few as gifts for friends and printing is actually pretty expensive (there are cheaper options but they always get my colors wrong somehow). I want to get them out as prettily as possible so I don’t print these cheaply.
These calendars are laser-printed on 250gsm matt paper and will come with a clip and wall hook. (Ribbon not included.)
(Again, colors are not accurate. Refer to first photo for actual tone.)
The calendar will be available in A4 and A3 (the above pictured are A3):
A4: SGD$30 each ($25 each if you purchase 3 or more) + $1 for ribbon
A3: SGD$45 each ($40 each if you purchase 3 or more) + $1 for ribbon
These calendars are for self-collection in Singapore only (they are heavy and postage will be insanely expensive).
If you are interested in purchasing these calendars, please email me at faramir[@]gmail.com by 7 January 2011 with your name, the size/quantity you want and your contact information and we will work something out. Planning to have them ready for collection by 10 January (Monday).
I have NO idea what the response to this will be, but if you want to get one (or two, or more), let me know.

Alrights, so I’ve finally decided to get back into the groove of designing regularly. Too many things have distracted me of late.
Finally purchased my own domain (after procrastinating for so long, yes), for real this time and not just talked about it. For now it’ll probably just be a place for me to put up my current portfolio to get more freelance work. More details on that when I get it up and running proper.
If anyone is interested/needs design work/want to do collaborations I’m available for hire.
(Except for the bit on collaborations.)
Do support my cause and contribute to the Send-Liz-To-Design-School fund by hiring me or linking me up with people who might want to.
For the yet to be informed, I have decided to pursue design as a career (much to the chagrin of most obviously, my mother), and am looking into doing some foundation courses leading up to a Masters’ program in Communication/Graphic Design once I’m done with this degree. It will not be an easy journey, I know. I have no art/design background, I know. What makes me think postgraduate design school will accept a student with no background such as myself, I know. A designer’s life isn’t a walk in the park or the best paying job, I know.
But being away from home in the heart of art and culture, and being exposed to a society so vastly different from what I’ve been brought up to believe is normal, has convinced me to stop postponing my dreams and not be afraid to step out beyond the safety of my limited horizon.
So keep me in your prayers. And if any time I ever feel like giving up, give me a slap on my back and remind me to stick to it.
After all, dreams wouldn’t be called dreams if they were always easily attainable.
Have a good day my Singaporean friends… It’s bed time here in Lugano.

This is the notebook Jeremy gave Chiang, Shiu and I during Christmas.
Mine’s the Beetle cause that’s the car I want.
Shiu has the Jeep and I can’t remember what WL’s is.
I’m not much of an artist. Just doodle some. So here’s a few of the pages I’ve filled here in Switzerland.
Final piece below.
Saturday tomorrow, just spent about 4 hours playing cards with my hostel mates. And there’s a birthday party tomorrow where we’d be cooking curry. Pictures, maybe.
Another week gone by here in Lugano…
