Q: How do I order a custom Creature?
A: Leave a message on my Contact Form. I deal with custom orders personally because I need to firstly, understand the customer on a personal level to make something suitable, and also, for the customer to understand that my work is abstract (and thus unpredictable).
Q: How much does a Creature cost and what am I paying for?
A: As a rough gauge, the prices start from SGD400.
Creating a piece of work entails the entire process of
- Selecting suitable colour, texture and material of the yarn
- Creating the unique design based on the customer
Some parts of the process might require more work than the request of another customer and cost more (e.g. sourcing for a particular type of yarn). All of my work is created by myself only, and its distinct character is only made possible by my years of experience. Also, I am very particular about quality and will do my best to uphold that in my creations that are all one-of-a-kind.
Q: Can I have a Creature that is already sold?
A: Each of these pieces are unique and I do not do recreations. As such, you will not be able to get the same piece of work if it has been sold.
Q: How do I know if the Creature I have is an original one-off?
A: All my Creatures come with an etched kllylmrck signature on a wooden tag (usually on the foot). It also comes with an original certificate with a hand-drawn sketch + warranty card.
Q: What happens if my Creature gets dirty or spoils?
A: While I have taken care to choose higher quality yarn, I cannot prevent changes which happen to all textile products in time- but if something breaks or falls out, I can definitely repair it for you (since 2017, I have included a lifetime warranty card for my Creatures line, which covers spoilage due to the unlikely negligence on my part).
Q: Are you open to interviews?
A: As my work production involves a lot of hours, I cannot accede to every interview request as much as I would like to. Most questions are already answered on my previous interviews (list on About page), or here. As such, I would only reply to those which are covering a topic previously untouched. My sincere apologies!
Q: What kind of ‘COMMISSION’ work do you do?
A: Aside from Creature soft sculptures, I also take commissions for artworks that can be 3D (sculptural) or 2.5D (wall-mounted). The work under the ‘COMMISSION’ tab are usually brand commissions or collaborations that take on a personality different from the ‘cuter’ Creatures line. Do enquire on the Contact Form if you would like to order a commissioned artwork.
Q: What kind of custom orders will be rejected?
A: I do not take custom orders for garments, as well as any designs that are not my own (e.g. Disney characters, crochet work of another artist).
Q: Do you sell your dreads?
A: As of March 2019, I have decided to stop selling dreadfalls, as I had been since 2015. This came after long contemplation and was certainly not an easy one. I am currently considering alternative ways I can present my dreads for sale as I do love making them and see each order as a chance to do something new and creative. The ‘DREADS’ page will remain to show my previous work, and I hope to come back with something exciting soon!
