The first time I attempted this was about 2 weeks ago, at the little laneway where I did my Ai Wei Wei portrait. I had all my tools, everything was laid out on the floor, and the videographer was ready. However, 10 seconds into the project and it was already a big fail - the wind was super strong, and all 12 pieces of paper (it was double the size of the painting above!) were blown away. I was really disappointed, and doubts started creeping in...was I able to do this?
That night in bed I flipped through my journal, and re-read what I wrote on new years day. My resolution as of 2012 is to organise my first personal art exhibition...to put time and effort into my passion for the arts. I thought about what happened that afternoon, and told myself that I should try again. And trying again may mean trying again and again.
So the next weekend, Joel and I went to another place to get this done. I reduced the scale of my canvas by half, and prayed that there wouldn't be wind. And guess what? Everything went incredibly smoothly; you can't imagine how relieved and happy I was! :)
A big big big thank you for all the kind comments and support from the Facebook community, and if you got to this page through other sites like 9gag.com, thank you for taking interest in my work! And of course, there wouldn't be this video if not for my good friend Joel Lee who shot and edited this video! :)
ps: Just an interesting note - Joel was the one who first started calling me 'Red'!
pps: I'm featured here on Feel Desain! :)
