For all of you who love our mascot, I present the making of Catzilla.

Gabrielle Lim Studio added 5 new photos.

The making of Catzilla (the mascot for Asia-link Sketchwalk Kuching 2017). Draft 1: cat E was picked out of 8 other cats. Draft 2: a body was added but looked t...oo bare. Draft 3: a costume was added but didn't reflect Sarawak style. Draft 4: an iban warrior headgear, a sketchbook and a brush was added. Final version refined and colors added. Approved!
