But here it is first..... it's a couple of my conservation campaigns that I've published in Hong Kong. The SPCA one is a 'reminder' campaign about responsibilities of having a pet because animals are not toys, they are cute when they are small, but they grow up. So the concept uses real animals but retouched with toy parts to look like a toy. It was published almost every week in HK magazine for more than a year from 2005, and sometimes still used even today. It's a real problem especially in HK because the houses are so small, so pets are often abandoned or abused when they get bigger. Then they are caught and sent to the SPCA, who can only do so much to help these animals get adoptedThe one for WWF is an ongoing campaign for marine conservation around the waters of Hong Kong. It was published as poster ads in the MTR stations all around the islands. I love to dive so this campaign is also very close to my heart. And I also got to be the illustrator on this one. I miss drawing..... so I drew the turtle... took me hours. But it was 10 posters in total, so we had to get other illustrators onboard and they did it all for a good cause.
I used to work as an outdoor instructor when I was living in Oz..... I love being with kids. I took groups of kids hiking, canoeing, abseiling and learnt some aboriginal dances, it was one of the best, carefree times of my life!!! Sometimes I'm more patient with kids than I am with adults because they just bring me so much joy!!! They are truthful, they tell you how they feel and they show it when they really like you..... I also loved living in the bush!!! No mobiles, no TV, no internet..... takes you back to the bare basics in life and reminds me of what is most important and precious. The outdoors make me the happiest and most free!!!! And I LOVE extreme sports!!! The more crazy the better!!! Heights, sky-diving.... whatever!!!
