非常感謝曾經到訪嘅各位、聽咗聲音導航、睇咗AR虛擬實境、Scan過個NFTs、感受過真人帶領導賞,買咗畫做珍藏,喺留言冊寫咗啲嘢等,每一點都令我可以完成首個個人藝術展覽。另外要特別感謝Mini Central場地提供,電台節目主持人馬仔嘅專業廣播及Pozzimade全力支援。

 

希望您有留意到每一幅畫當中嘅細節,無論係大廈入面嘅失物、機動遊戲上被報復、對超現實主義嘅致敬、捉到捉不到嘅客機、獅子眼中滲出嘅憂鬱、定係專注與漠視嘅社會情境等⋯⋯每幅畫嘅箇中意義,透過強烈線條表現,等您逐一解讀。

 

而家我需要一啲時間,審視自己喺創作上面嘅方向,可能會試吓做吓啲新嘢。而呢個展覽,肯定係人生中一個重要嘅Milestone,感謝!

Thank you so much to everyone who has visited the exhibition, especially experienced the audio tour, AR, NFTs, the art tour, bought the pieces for collection, wrote in the guestbook etc. Every single thing help me to complete my first solo exhibition. In addition, I would like to thank Mini Central, professional DJ Ma Chai, and full support from pozzimade. 

 

I hope you noticed the details in each piece, whether there are lost items in a mansion, a revenge game from the ocean, a tribute to surrealism, a plane that cannot be caught on, the sadness of the Lion Rock etc. the meaning of each piece expressed through strong lines for you to interpret.

 

I need some time to assess my creations. And I may try something new. This exhibition is definitely a milestone in life. Thank you.

睇雜誌時會間中睇到一啲文章,側邊會一張插畫嚟形容文章要點,都會覺得果啲插畫畫得可以好抽象但又好貼切,原來真係好難諗㗎!

 

今次Tatler Hong Kong搵咗我去畫一篇有關慈善基金嘅新一代管理及營運模式正在蛻變中,我研讀咗篇文章好耐先出到幅初稿,之後反覆改動畫入面嘅細節及切換場景,最終達致而家呢幅成品,刊登咗喺十二月嘅副刊Wealth Management,感謝!

When I read magazines, there are articles with illustrations on the side describing some key points from it. The illustrations can be drawn so abstractly but also accurately to the topics. I found it so difficult to do that when it came to me.

 

Tatler Hong Kong appointed me to draw an illustration for an article about the management and operations of new-generation philanthropists, which is undergoing transformation. I studied the article hard to prepare for the first draft, then I kept on swapping the details and scenes to fulfil the final piece. This illustration work was published in the supplement Tatler Wealth Management in the December issue. Thank you for the opportunity.

就算你飄到去外太空,即使喺邊度⋯⋯記憶嘅味道一直喺度⋯⋯

 

有人離開,有人留低,但有一種味道永遠都唔會變。仲記唔記得讀書時同初戀食米線嘅日子,打完波同一班兄弟鬥食辣嘅情景,第一次出糧請屋企人食飯嗰種滿足感?其實我哋最掛住嘅,唔單止係米線嘅味道,更加係味道背後嘅故事同回憶。

 

無論你選擇離開,抑或留低,譚仔三哥呢一份香、麻、辛、辣,一應俱全嘅味道,總會伴隨你經歷過每一段動人往事。我哋將依段故事,送畀每一個鍾意三哥味道嘅香港人,身處外地仍然掛住三哥味道嘅你。故事尚未完結,三哥嘅人情味由你延續落去。

No matter where you are, even in outer space, the taste of memory is always on your mind.

 

Some people left, some stayed behind, but there is a taste that will never be changed. Do you still remember when you had rice noodles with your first love in school back in the days? Your friends were completing the level of spiciness, and the first time paying for a dinner to your family? We miss all those good old days, especially for those who are staying overseas now.

 

LIFE MART has cooperated with Tam Chai Sam Gor for the last three years. This year, we invited 65+1 artists to draw for the illustration exhibition and limited postcards for the fair.

呢啲公園設施我真係未見過,但係我哋身邊嘅長者可能有玩過,唔知會唔會令佢哋記番起童年時嘅回憶呢!

 

早在兩三個月前得到香港青年藝術協會邀請,為銀齡一族製作嘅電子填色冊繪畫俾他們填色嘅圖冊,記錄佢哋嘅「想當年」,只要郁下手指,就可以輕易填色㗎喇,個App仲有好多其他圖冊可以揀,呢個係鼓勵佢哋接觸數碼科技藝術,同埋可以同佢哋一齊玩㗎。

I really haven't seen these park facilities, but elderly may have played before. Hope it will remind them of their childhood memories!

 

Two to three months ago, I was invited by the Hong Kong Youth Arts Association to draw illustrations for elderly to fill in colour through a tablet. It’s easy to use with finger tips. Hopefully this app can encourage them to get in touch with digital technology and art, and of course we can play with them together.

人見人愛嘅餐蛋麵,麻油味香濃,係凌晨時有啲啲肚餓嘅珍品,陪伴咗香港人幾多個夜番嘅晚上,「索索」嘅音效充斥在寧靜嘅空間裡,濃郁嘅香味傳到去隔離屋,仲要3分鐘就食得,非常適合「快靚正」嘅港式生活哲學。凌晨時分,一個人靜靜地在廚房裡煮麵食,其實都係一份浪漫。

Everyone loves the instant noodles served with ham and egg, especially the smell of sesame oil. It is truly a treasure in the early morning to the Hong Kong people for many nights fulfilling the philosophy of living in Hong Kong.

Tatler Hong Kong invited Rickubic to create artwork to celebrate Hong Kong, from A to Z, which I got the letter K - Kai Tak. 

 

Extracted from Tatler Hong Kong 

 

Artist Rick Lo - who sometimes uses the pen name Rickubic - remembers flying into Kai Tak Airport, whose runway famously jutted into Victoria Harbour, making it one of the most dramatic landings in the world. 

 

“I loved to see the view from the plane,” says Lo. “I remember seeing all the beautiful lights - a tiny Hong Kong. I was excited that our plane almost landed on the roofs of the buildings.” 

 

Lo subsequently developed a serious passion for flying. “I took flying lessons in a small plane in Adelaide when I studied in Australia,” he says. “Although I haven’t completed any licences, each time I get back up there in a plane, I feel happy.”

ViuTV劇集「大叔的愛」引來強大熱潮,於是沿用「達利的早餐」進行二次創作變成 「KK煮早餐」,結果這個fanart被Marie Claire雜誌選中並登出。

The ViuTV drama "Uncle's Love" attracted a strong hit to the audience. Then "Dali’s Breakfast" was used to transform and became "KK Cooks Breakfast". As a result, this fanart was selected and published by Marie Claire magazine.

Rickubic首幅以NFTs認證的數碼藝術作品正式開售,每次售出均會於區塊鏈留下驗證記錄和買家擁有權,獨一無二,並首度以加密貨幣(以太幣)作結算,突破實體藝術畫作的局限。

 

該精選作品更是一幅會不斷閃動的霓虹時空電車,曾經是香港夜空繁華的標記,電車穿梭自上世紀的漫長時空,帶不走傳統霓虹的價值,卻剩下這強烈的視覺回憶。

 

This is our first piece of digital art available on the platform using NFTs. There are verification records and the digital ownership for each sale in the blockchain. And this is also the first time to use crypto currency (Ethereum) for settlement which can extend the vision of physical art. 

 

We picked this piece of glare of neon lights as one of our selections. It was a symbol of the prosperous night sky in Hong Kong with filling of neon signs on the streets. The tram travels through the space-time of the last century to nowadays. There are only memories left of this strong visual as those traditional neon signs that cannot be taken away.

要做好一個初創品牌,非常困難,首先一定要識得精神分裂⋯⋯

 

表面上係做創作,其實可能有8成時間擺左喺基本營運、業務拓展、市場推廣、客戶服務等,每一個角式都要good take⋯⋯如果唔係真係好鍾意、好狂熱、好堅持,應該都會攪唔掂⋯⋯

 

當日見到參與Trial Academy品牌班的朋友們,佢地個個都攪得掂,憑一枱擺設足以令我感受到背後有幾咁努力,亦知道導師Ronnie和Perine功力深厚,將每人嘅個創shape到最大價值。

It is very difficult to be a good start-up. First of all, you need to be good at role playing.

 

Generally, it’s all about creative work. However, in fact, 80% of your time has been spent on daily operations, business development, marketing promotions, customer services etc. And you should play it all in one good take. If you don’t have super love for it, and have passion to stand with, please don’t bother. 

 

I saw the participants who joined in the Trial Academy branding class that day. They got the jobs done very well. The instructors Ronnie and Perine are excellent at shaping the maximum value on those brands.

電影由很多格不同的菲林排列,順序透過手動的放映機投影在布幕上,每格菲林轉換使我們的眼睛產生錯覺,形成「會郁動嘅相(Moving Picture)」。

 

為電影的起源、文化及歷史出版一本書冊,更要圖文並茂而且深入淺出,「要幾有熱誠先會咁樣做」。早於去年十二月,有幾位從事電影保存與修復的人,為留傳這些人類文明產物,「搵我一次過畫左十一幅畫」作內容介紹。經過多個月的努力,書冊終於面世,「仲係用廣東話同英文寫㗎」。

 

由逐格菲林放映,黑白至彩色,配以音效和加入字幕,「每part都係電影嘅Milestone」,直接連繫著「由你部iPad睇戲嘅文明」。

 

The film is arranged by many different films, which are projected on the screen in sequence manually. Each film conversion makes an illusion to our brain, forming a "Moving Picture".

 

To publish a book for the origin, culture and history of the film, it needs to be well-articulated and easy to understand. "It takes a little enthusiasm to do it."  As early as December last year, several people engaged in the preservation and restoration of the film introduced the content of eleven illustrations in order to describe the civilisation of our kind.  After several months of hard work, the book was finally published in Cantonese and English.

 

From screenings, black and white to colour, with sound effects and subtitles added, "Every part is a Milestone of the movie", directly connected to "The Civilisation of Your iPad".

"8 Talented and Inspiring Hong Kong Illustrators You Need To Know"

Written by Amanda Sheppard, Localiiz

 

Rick Lo, or Rickubic, as he is known, is an illustrator known for his bold line work. Having relocated from Australia to Hong Kong, he puts a fresh spin on everyday iconic Hong Kong sites such as the Star Ferry and red minibuses, with the odd pithy social commentary thrown in for good measure. A number of his creations are available to purchase from his online Etsy store for a very reasonable price.

挑戰!主辦單位 Life Mart 希望作品以七月十四為題,創作出既本土卻又不能夠過於恐怖的插畫設計,畢竟市集是一個優閒舒逸的活動,因此以本地馳名美食叉燒入手,配以「埋嚟睇,堆嚟瀨」等文字題目展現。此外,Life Mart 是在香港一個非常用心用力的市集製作團隊,為手作業界提供強大支援及優質的文化藝術平台。

 

Life Mart would like to use "14 July" (as known as The Chinese Ghost Festival) as the theme for a Market Fair. It is quite a challenge to present the concept of not too horrible yet being localised. So I picked the local delicious food “Barbecue Pork” with the wordings of “Come and taste it” to illustrate the Chinese legend that ghosts might lick the barbecue pork during the Festival. Besides, Life Mart is a local team of the market fair organiser full of passion. They provide strong support to handicrafters with a qualitative platform for art and culture.

踏入2018年,桌上急需一款精緻月曆,可是目前所收到的都不太合適,因此決定要自家製作了一個。至於計劃要投入生產連木座等配套,可能要待2019年了。

 

I need a decent desk calendar desperately when it is coming to 2018. However, I don't receive any good one. So I made one for myself. Besides, Rickubic plans to produce the calendar with a wooden stand in mass for 2019. You gotta wait for it a bit while.

經過已繪畫了三年的聖誕節,聖誕三部曲終於可以在今年完整地裝裱。以下是故事重溫:

 

聖誕三部曲 - 第一回前傳 - 聖誕老人和鹿仔

從前有一個派緊禮物嘅聖誕老人,佢駕駛嘅飛船因電力故障而被逼降落,啲鹿仔嚇到一隻二隻走哂出嚟,正當聖誕老人好苦惱地駁番啲電線嘅時候,突然聽到啲鹿仔嘅怪叫聲,一股奇怪嘅力量將佢地彈飛至半空中,離奇地漂浮著⋯⋯

 

聖誕三部曲 - 第二回 - 紅色鼻子的魯道夫

傳說有一首家傳戶曉嘅聖誕歌, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", 道出一班鹿仔們爭上位嘅奮鬥故事,紅色鼻子嘅魯道夫因為佢個鼻紅色而發光,慘被其他鹿仔歧視、恥笑同排斥,可憐嘅魯道夫冇得同其他鹿仔一齊玩,

於是佢開始左一連串嘅報復計劃⋯⋯

 

聖誕三部曲 - 第三回 - 魯道夫遇上雪人卡爾

正當魯道夫開始佢嘅報復計劃之際,偷偷地接駁左架飛船嘅電去電擊其他鹿仔,可是狡滑嘅雪人卡爾出現從後暗算魯道夫,與此同時,聖誕老人亦已經修理好架飛船,仲即刻可以起飛趕住去派禮物添,究竟魯道夫同其他鹿仔可唔可以脫險呢⋯⋯

參與了2014第五屆香港原創動漫人型設計比賽,作品啟發自愛德華·孟克的「吶喊」,取名為「畢安」,作品最後獲得公開組評審嘉許狀。

 

畢安 - 源自人性
