Good Vibes Designs Vol 1: A social initiative by Malaysians and for Malaysians.
Good Vibes Designs is Krayon Asia’s first collaboration with young, local artists to select and compile a concise yet meaningful collection of art in a book form.
Good Vibes Designs is Krayon Asia’s first collaboration with young, local artists to select and compile a concise yet meaningful collection of art in a book form. It is a project that encourages young artists to partner with Krayon Asia and get involved in our community programs which are aimed at bringing betterment to communities and individuals who are disadvantaged or simply, just not anywhere yet.
The idea of Good Vibes is to give teens and adults alike, a refreshing set of drawings with doses of uplifting and inspirational messages across the book. These drawings provide the template on which you are invited to add in your own creativity through the art of colouring or create your own artwork too.
After we had conceptualised the ideas for our book project, we went about a few months, exploring for artwork that would bring out these good vibe moments. We wanted the drawings to convey feel-good moments and impart a sense of “not taking life too seriously – life’s smallest moments are little adventures to be appreciated”.
We then chanced upon the works of Do.Da.Doodle’s Amir Sabri and Iezziezzati Illustration (II) and they fit into the objective of Good Vibes. Amir’s work covers a broad range – from injecting child-like humour with his Boy and Robot themes to fantasy pieces aptly named Diverse Universe. Amir’s personal style is playful, dreamy with cosmic undertones.
On the flipside, II’s drawings depict everyday life. Mundane workspaces and buildings define our modern lifestyle and II humanises these spaces with a sense of calmness and reflection. In a crowded concrete jungle, II infuses space – one can feel the spaces between the objects in II’s drawings. There is life in the smallest of spaces!
Krayon Asia is dedicated to supporting young talents by providing them the platform to showcase their creative works. The next project of the Good Vibes Designs colouring book series will focus on artworks from special needs artists. It is our wish that this book will be a source of encouragement to the families of special needs artists to work with us.
Lastly, we hope you will enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed creating it.
