"Everything begins with an idea and every idea starts with a sketch."

The Stickards Project started as usual sketch sessions on my Samsung Note 8 phone during my morning commute to work. Had an idea to illustrate my friends and family, turning their Instagram display photos into illustrated black and white versions of themselves. Word went round and I received more requests from people asking me to 'cartoonize' them.

Eventually I decided to develop on this idea and print physical copies of these illustrations as    EZ-Link (Singapore Public Transport smart card) stickers, so my friends can now bring it wherever they go.

Product designed and photographed by yours truly.
