A guest from Australia.

Today a friend from down under visited me again, a regular guest to Penang Island. Richard is from Adelaide.

He brought me a few lettering cut matboards by his Wizard CMC this time. The matboard with the lettering cut of ARTBUG!( my gallery name on it!) He wanted to give me an idea how a CMC could help my business if I can buy one. He still feel surprised to see how could I cut different shape of opening just with my manual cutter and a few plastic template.

Richard also brought some framing material catalogs for my reference. I understand that he just want to help me so that I could have more complete framing materials in my workshop one day. He said he is going back to check with Australia distributor like Antons and LJ if they can arrange to export their products to Malaysia! ( what can I say......Richard is so kind to share his information and very sincere offering his help....I couldnt give him a nicely cut matboard as he does as he has a better one at his workshop. So I invited him for a lunch!! and I am glad that he was enjoying our local dishes...)

Just forget to let you guys know that he is a one of the Committee Members of PICTURE FRAMERS GUILD OF AUSTRALIA. (PFGA) He is definately the best and a very hardworking committee member! He help the framer even not from his country and not belong to his chapter. ( I am a PPFA member of US and Fine Art Trade Guild of UK! )

Restaurant Project

Nagore Road, the place that we are located now is full of restaurants. Near to us, you also see another food paradise, The New World Park, Penang.

We had 2 framing orders from neighbouring restaurants last week. The first one is Thai food restaurant and another one is western food restaurant.

The Chili Corner Thai food restaurant owner passed me some plastic chili to be framed. He tend to hang the frame in front of the counter. He asked my help to design the artwork in order to make the red chili look spicy and hot!! (It think probably he means outstanding!) Ching designed the artwork as he loved it very much.

And I just get a few done just now.

Ching's broken watch!

Ching had accidently broken her Adidas sport watch which I gave her as a gift for her birthday few years ago. She like the watch very much and she was disapponted that she cant wear it for aerobic class again.

Since the belt couldnt be replaced, we decided to frame it up ( we also feel that the watch has the sentimental's value for both of us ). So, she designed the background artwork and I had just get it framed just now.

Tomorrow, I will hang it in my gallery and show my customers even the broken stuff can be framed!!
