Feast and Furious Cafe Mural

Artsy Daphy started furiously as we completed our first mural of 2016! The Feast and Furious Cafe Mural on Abell Road, Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia got itself a feature on Borneo Post! 😀

Artists create iconic murals in city centre

Up-close shot of the left side of the mural. The pup in my bicycle is Repsol! She’s the sweet little pup that our Client rescued on one of his rides. Janani’s on the Vespa, and Alex’s on the Ducati. The guy above Alex is Eddy Merckx, a professional cyclist and on his left, Valentino Rossi.

The whole thing took about 14 days to complete with one week on my yellow magic carpet!

We also had a go on the cherry picker on the final touch-up day 😀 Yes, I can now operate both machines!

During our two weeks there, we met tons of curious and interesting people too. This very friendly couple came up and asked, “You, drew this? That is er.. Rossi?”. When I replied, “Yes, you recognize him?”, they said proudly, “Yes yes! We’re from Italy!” and pointed at Rossi and the Ducati. 😀

And this guy was touring Malaysia with his little sister. This is probably the fifth picture he made his sister take. They were so cute and made me want to travel with my sibling too!

Till the next project, do follow the social media links on the left to get regular sneak peaks on our latest projects before they reach this website! You can also follow my personal blog at daphnesiaw.com for more random, not totally art-related stuff. Thanks for dropping by!

A ball point pen A5 sketch of where I go to 3-4 times a week after work! The Gym Box, first mixed martial arts gym in Kuching, Sarawak. They import trainers from around the world to coach the MMA, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, and Boxing classes. They also have a full range of gym facilities and offer a wide range of classes apart from the Fight Club like Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, TRX, Body Pump, Body Combat, Hip Hop, and so on. Check out their Facebook Page for more info. Picked up Muay Thai and MMA here and got my overall fitness back on track. Quite glad to have joined. 
It’s the last quarter of 2013, been through tons of changes this year and accomplished a few things. Life’s all good now but there’s one major thing left on my list to do, apart from posting a hundred drawings this year (till this current post there’s only 56). Three more months to go to achieve them! Have you all done what you’ve all set out to do this year?
