Illustration – Blooming Flowers & Honey Bees


It’s spring time. This is an illustration showing blooming flowers and busy bees in this lovely season.

The blending mode is applied in creating the color effects of the flower petals.


Illustration – Color Paint Splatters

An exercise of using the Artistic Ink Brush in Adobe Illustrator to create some colorful paint splatters.


How to create this work?

  1. Each color splatter is a mix of artistic ink brushes randomly drawn and grouped together.
  2. Made duplicates of the splatter, changed to various colors accordingly and re-position.
  3. Only did Expand Appearance of the splatters at final step because once you did it, the colors of the splatters can still be changed but there may be distortion of shape, which is not possible to resume.

The creation of this work is easy but the file size is quite huge and taking quite a lot of time in the file saving and revision.

Merry Christmas

This is not a finished artwork as the layout is quite messy, but just my exercise to practise on various typography and text effects for a greeting message. For convenient, I put all the applications on a piece of layout so I don’t treat this as a formal piece. The function used including envelop distort (top object), warp, type on a path.  I got more familiar with the applications after this exercise and will consider to come up with some typography artworks in the future.

Thank you for stopping by, happy holidays to all.
