For all of you who love our mascot, I present the making of Catzilla.
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!
The last 4 days has been a blast. Thank you everyone for making a great and wonderful memory together in Kuching! Keep in touch and see you again at the next Asia-Link Sketchwalk!
This is the final list with all videos of Asialink Sketchwalk 2017 Kuching from Teoh Yi Chie, or mostly known as Parka from Parka Blogs.
