Ready, Get Set, Colour! A Faber Castell X Karl Lagerfeld Collaboration

Hey guys, how is October treating you? I hope you have been doing good! Today I would like to introduce some colours to your life. :) Last month I was invited to launch the Karlbox at the Faber-Castell flagship store in Singapore. Karlbox was simultaneously launched worldwide on the same day, so I definitely felt honoured to be representative of Singapore artists.

Created by Karl Lagerfeld, an iconic designer, the Karlbox is an absolute treasure chest containing 350 drawing instruments. Did you know that Karl uses Faber-Castell products to do extensive sketches and illustrations before he works on his fashion designs? It is no wonder that the Karlbox he curated is an artist’s dream.

This event was special for me because I got to invite 10 of my instagram followers. It was such a delight to finally meet some of them in person and to personally thank them for their support on my creative journey!

I did a live art illustration at the event where I demonstrated step-by-step how anyone interested can produce amazing colours on their art pieces.

My favourite drawing tools were the Albrecht Duerer Watercolour Pencils. With 120 colour palette to choose from, not only did my inspirations run wild, my guests who got to do hands on painting and colouring of my illustrations (that I prepared before the event) also had a great time unleashing the artist in them.

It was a highly enjoyable and therapeutic session for everyone at the event. Some of them wound up purchasing brand-new Faber-Castell art supplies. I’m certainly glad that I’ve inspired creative confidence in them!
