Thai Flood 2011: Loss and Damage

Fri Dec 16, 2011, 12:35 PM


Although the troubled water was already gone, it left serious damage behind. My house needs a big cleaning and renovation which seems there's no end. Almost all of my watercolors featuring in my dA gallery, including a few canvases and old works from high school, were so damaged that I had to throw them away with sorrow. Fortunately, my tools of the trade are totally safe, so I can make a new start. The world in 2012 is unpredictable. It could be like what happened in the movie "2012", but I'll keep painting anyway.

We've been doing this for a long time now, and one day we just thought - wow, why not share these with ALL of dA? So, here they are.....

My Published Artwork

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 14, 2008, 9:03 AM
I've never submitted my commercial art work online. Here are all that have been published in Thailand since 2006. Each available in Thai only.


:star: Fantasy Novel Covers :star:

Rattanamani
รัตนมณีแห่งดวงดาว
(The Three Diamonds of The Galaxy)

Mah
มาห์
(Mah)

Galapipob
กาลพิภพ
(The Age of Kingdom)

Tabkinnaree
ทับกินรี
(Kinnaree's Haven)

:star: Covers and Illustrations :star:

Jataka
พระเจ้าสิบชาติและพระพุทธเจ้า
(The Stories of Ten Jataka and Lord Buddha's Life)

Literature
นามานุกรมนางในวรรณคดี
(Heroines from Thai Literature)


I primarily did illustrations with traditional medium. Once the covers have been released, they frequently shocked me because other staff had edited them digitally, esp. the silhouette couple on Mah cover was definitely not my original design and the background was completely changed. Dang! The last decision is not mine. :(

I was watching the news on TV while I painted the picture. It was telling that Bangkok would light up Maleenon Tower in pink during 1st-3rd October to raise awareness of national breast cancer. I just felt good to do something in this occasion. My aunt(maternal side) had survived from breast cancer for 22 years before she died of pneumonia several years ago. I know that the disease could hit me anytime, but I hope not! So be aware of this thing and take good care, folks!

:icongreeneye1981: has tagged me out of the blue.

The rules:

1-POST THESE RULES IN YOUR JOURNAL

2-EACH TAGGED PERSON MUST POST 8 FACTS ABOUT THEM SELVES IN THEIR JOURNAL.

3-AT THE END, YOU MUST TAG 8 PEOPLE AND POST THEIR ICONS IN YOUR SAME JOURNAL.

4-GO TO THEIR PAGE AND SEND THEM A MESSAGE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAGGED.

5- NO TAG-BACKS.

And My 8 facts.

1. I always don men's wear.
2. I don't like the idea of being a salary man and I'm not gonna be one.
3. I'm addicted to fur - where it belongs - on living animals but I'm allergic to it.
4. I eat only Asian food and it must be seafood.
5. I've learnt to paint seriously after I graduated from a famous art university.
6. I've studied 5 languages so far apart from my native tongue. (crazy!)
7. Ich treibe keinen Sport.(???)
8. Jag vill leva och jag vill dö i Norden. (Oh! no, it's not the fact!)

To stop the unpleasant circle. I'll break the rule no. 3-4. Besides, most of my friends have been tagged already. :P

Thanks for sharing!

From time to time I've been asked to sign my name in my painted pictures, but I refused.

Signing the pictures has been a tradition to painters for ages.
To me, an artist's signature seems annoying and like a plague to the work of art. Nevertheless, a signature or monogram which is well-designed or artistically hidden in the picture can be the exceptions.

Since ancient Siam, numberless mural painters  willingly have kept their names anonymous. No names were signed. Those mural painters became honored and so exalted making sacrifice to the Bhudda although their names were forgotten as time passed by. The mural has long been acknowledged as traditonal pure art of Thailand no matter who painted it.

Todays, the case of artwork created by unknown artist might be a possibility of art forgery. It is not justified that the artwork is valued regarding to the name of the person who made it, not its quality.

Although I belong to no religion, I am delighted to paint with distinctive quality, recognizable to myself in spite of being unknown to others.

I always wanna be a comicker or a mangaka or everyone knows those words as a cartoonist. Though, I don't have much time to complete my comic. In my wee bit free time I enjoy working on illustrations bit by bit. I love depicting images of women and related objects and plants.

I'm also fond of exotic cultures which is the demonstration of human civilization. That's why I'm interested in world history. The more I study, the more I understand.

Illustration is like photography in some ways, but it shows more skill with less technology. Sometimes high technology kills human talent and turns us against our nature.
