(I shall keep you safe, paperclips!)
If you have a desk job involving tons of papers, you’d know how often you need these little pieces of metals. They are so small and so many that they need to be kept in a shallow box for neat storage and easy access. But it’s a hassle to have to keep opening and closing the box it came from. And if you’re like me, and find it a waste to buy a pretty new container just for them little buggers, here’s an idea on how you can store your paperclips for easy access with style, for free! 
Just open up your paperclip box, doodle whatever you like on the inside and outside of all the flaps, you can even stick post-its on it to make the little monster more interesting. Next, just stick the cover flap to your PCs monitor so the box wouldn’t close, spill, or move all around your desk. There you go, a new practical, decoration piece on your workspace. No money involved, and you just reused! 🙂
On another note, it breaks my heart to realize I updated this space only once for the past few months. Since I’m finding less time to make complete bigger pieces, I shall now post whatever little creations I come up with daily, like this Office Craft idea.
Also, there’s an exciting little project in Kuching City  that might delight many young artists and art lovers here. Super grateful to be part of it. This will be a busy week thinking of ideas to contribute to this project.
Till next time, thanks for dropping by! Will update more often, promise!

Hello all, pardon my disappearance, I have been out of town, in Kuala Lumpur, to be exact. I haven’t been getting enough time and space to do any drawing. Lack of time is because I’m here for work. As for space, I don’t have a proper table and chair at the hotel. Well, there is a chair and a table but barely enough space, it’s so uncomfy! Can’t do anything there. Oh how I miss drawing and creating stuff. Worse part is, I had a fever of 38.9 degrees Celsius last Thursday that I spent the entire weekend in my hotel room feeling sad, disappointed, and drowsy because of medication. *CRIES*
But I’m all better now, and happy artsy Daphy is coming back soon! Evidence is this very quick and rough sketch of Daphne in KL that I did lying on my bed (my back is now sore). Slowly building up my shopping mood too! Can’t believe Daphne hasn’t bought anything at all after more than a week here! Not happening! Shopping my last two days left in this city whenever I have the time, now that I feel better! 
I miss Kuching, my little home town. I really hope to see the beach this weekend. I need a break!
Hello all! I’ve been mad addicted to this 6 second video making app called Vine. I think it’s quite new so currently it’s only on the iPhone, but you can watch with your mobile phone and computer!  
I’ve always loved the quirkiness of stop motion animation. So I’ve been trying to fit short messages, stop-motion-style in my vines. Here are 2 of my preferred vines that I made today. Titled:
Hope you enjoy them! More to come. Now I can’t wait till I save enough for a camera so I can take more videos. There’s just something about filming that is so exciting!
Follow me on Twitter @daphysal for updates on my vines!

Tonight, most of us Malaysians around the world would have our faces in our computers, phones, television, and anything with a screen, as we nervously await the results of the 13th General Elections. (Probably won’t be in my lazy pose, but you get the picture.)
I really love my country. It is my beautiful, peaceful, friendly, and much loved home. I really hope and pray for a better Malaysia!

If any of you have been following me on Instagram, you’d seen I’ve doodled a few mini me(s), and they’re all gloomy. Yes, I’ve been quite moody. I’ve colored them here with Photoshop to express their moods.

It does feel good to be able to transfer my feelings into these doodles. As I concentrate while drawing them, they help me relax a little.

Hope you all feel better than I do! 🙂
