Like I said on my personal blog, Torrance and Willie from invited me to design the invite for the quarterly artists' and designers' forum Rojak 09. And here it is:

The design's based on Chua Mia Tee's "National Language Class", of course. The event'll be held at the Central Green Patch of the new LaSalle campus, with socialising from 8pm and presentations from 9pm till late. Bring drinks!

And since we're at it, I'll show you some of the other pastiche designs they turned down:

Based on Raphael's "The School of Athens" (with Leonardo and Diogenes as our interlocutors).

Based on Rembrandt's "The Anatomy Lesson of Nicholaes Van Tulp". I liked this one best, personally. Let the dead work speak for itself.

Mmm. I still like the Nat'l Language Class one the best. The corpse's thought bubble obscures a face. Moreover, it's fun to imagine a student in a serious class shouting "Rojak!" for no reason whatsoever.
