Oh! i heart jimmy!

Oh, i really miss him! Yesterday, wc pass me a magazine, U Magazine that he bought......I couldn't believe my eyes! It was Jimmy! Jimmy was in there! The article was about his latest publication Never Ending Story & Best of Jimmy Liao Collection 1998-2008 + his already passed exihibition (it was a pass issue of Umag, issue 121) in hong kong. (more about the exihibition, here.)
Here are a few preview from Best of Jimmy Liao Collection 1998-2008.

i love this guy ever since i bumped into his work in a bookstore infront of my school (hmm......more than 10 years ago.'> Wow!). i used to only read & browse through his lovely illustrated storyline, now after so many years, i am definitely going to start on Jimmy's collection.'> About Jimmy Liao:
"Born in Taipei, B.A. in Fine Arts, with a major in Design. He had worked in advertising companies for 12 years. Now he works as an illustrator. Since 1998, Jimmy published several illustrated books with amazing originality and multi-faceted narratives. He had since set a fashion in creating and publishing illustrated books in local and international markets. Utilizing images as a refreshing form of literary language, Jimmy creates in his works poetic frames that emit charms and appeals. He has published seventeenth popular books so far, and they are translated into English, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Korean and so forth. Being the most popular illustrator author in Asia, creating lots of fantasy and touch hearts cross all generation, however, with low profile personality, he enjoys the family time more, lives a tranquil life and devotes most of his time to work. Immersing in his works is just like to go into Jimmy's inner world, his inviting stories reflect the reality of real life, more and more people are intoxicated by his vivid strokes and his magic realism narratives. Now in Asia, Jimmy becomes vogue of the time, beyond his stories, "Jimmy" is like a pop of a new life style." quoted from

I dream of color

"Color excites me. As a child, I would feel a rush of excitement when opening a box of crayons and seeing all the colors interact and relate. I still feel the same excitement when I see colors come together in a room."-Ghislaine Viñas.

i accidently found her through jennifer lee's blog, Let your creativity......flow while browsing for bedrooms' idea for my job.

i feel like a kid again dreaming of swimming through sea of colorful glass marbles in my sleep, waiting for reward of a big swirled rainbows colored lollipop after doing something good, and getting excited after the rain just because rainbows might appear in the sky after she had a really good cry......
GV portfolio excite me and gave me a mood boost for the day!
