Mee-Lin Creations Blog
What this blog is about?
This blog will be about art and handmade projects.
For this blog, my goal is to share my artworks, make people know about my work and educate people about art. I believe that writing, teaching and sharing my thoughts could be interesting for my readers. It might also help me grow and keep track of my progress as an artist.
I dedicate most of my life drawing and creating with my hands. I hope I can share my art with others and create art that people will love. I use both digital and traditional medium.
In the past, I’ve done a lot of crafting. I was making a lot of origami and papercraft. Since a year, I tried sewing and hooked to it. I think it’s one of the most useful one to have in life. I don’t have much time for any other crafting activities, but as I find that sewing has a lot of origami and papercraft techniques in it, it’s quite satisfying. In this blog, I want to show my crafting projects and share my steps.
Drawing and story telling
Since I was little, I was interested in drawing and animated films. I used to watch Lion King frequently. I also got interested in manga and video games, because my brother brought some home.
As a kid and teenager, I was drawing, painting and writing stories.
Then, I studied in 2D animation at Cégep du Vieux-Montréal. I learned to make traditional animation from the concept to the final product. I pursued in 3D animation at Centre NAD, Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, where I specialized myself in video games.
I now have a very versatile background in art.
I want to keep improving and make art for people who like what I’m happy doing.
I started sewing classes in september 2015. I found that it was a very useful skill to use in everyday life. When I started my classes, I was thinking of making things for home. I wanted to make customized bean bags with Ghibli theme and plushies. I wanted, and still want, to make clothes for myself. Particularly dresses. I wanted to make clothes for my significant one too.
Now, my plans changed a bit. Right now, I’m working on a pencil roll to bring my art material anywhere. I’m waiting for mid-winter to start making dresses, so that I could wear them right away when they are done. I actually stopped my classes 5 weeks ago. I think I’m good enough to take online courses instead. You can work from home anytime I want and I don’t need a teacher anymore. I also want to start personal projects by myself to get confident, sharpen my skills and be faster.
I think I explore a lot of things to undertand what I like the most. I want to combine my skills and passions to create things that people with want to have. I tried origami, sewing, drawing, calligraphy, crochet, papercraft, tricot and a lot more. For now, my most atttractive fiels to work in are illustration and sewing, although I like doing all sort of stuffs.
I will do my best to post as much as I can.

Have a nice day and see you soon!
