Live Interview and Original Pencil Drawing

Hi guys,
The super talented Bobby Chiu will interview me LIVE on the Sketchoholic site. I'm really honoured and stoked about this. I don't have many experience with interviews.. so I'm a bit nervous about it but I'll try my best to share some of my thoughts with you guys. :) It'll be fun!

It'll happen on the Friday 1st October 2010 (America/New_York time) at 19:00:00 - which converts to Saturday 2nd October 2010 (Australia/Sydney time) 09:00:00 (day light saving).

In the tradition of Sketchoholic interview, there is a contest that's coming along with it. The topic for my contest is "Nocturnal". Obviously, it somehow related to the recently released "Legend of the Guardians" movie. Please don't feel that you need to draw/paint/sculpt owls though :)

The winner will get my original pencil drawing and also a free copy of Corel® Painter™ 11!

and here's the drawing:

Title: Nocturnal
Size: 20x23 cm (total with white border)
Medium: Pencil on Arches paper

This pencil drawing is dedicated to all of you who have worked hard to think and hatch ideas, stories and all other positive things and keep doing what they love to do :)

The real thing :)


Hope you can have fun with the topic. I really look forward to checking your submissions. :)

For more details, please visit SKETCHOHOLIC site.

PS: I'll be grateful if you can also help me spread the word about this event :) Thank you in advance.

Piya said...

Charles! A big congratulations on your interview! Unfortunately, I don't think I can make it. My mother is flying home tomorrow night and I haven't seen her in three weeks. I really REALLY wish I could take part! I will be submitting something, but I'm not even sure if I can, since I can't attend the interview! If I can't, I guess my submission can just be removed.

Once again, huge congratulations! And also, congratulations on "Legend of the Guardians"!!

Charles Santoso said...

Piya: Thanks a lot, Piya! and yes! of course you can submit something even though you won't be able to attend the interview :D

All the best to you, man.. and have a great weekend. Really appreciate your message :)
