I have to admit it – I am a magpie. I collect stuff that makes me happy and I struggle to part with it. Some of these things are a little kooky and odd, but they have meaning and put a smile on my face. I think that’s what drew me to illustrator Jacqueline Ong, her exhibition “Drawn to Nostalgia” held at The Little Drom Store (Nov 2012) in Singapore really captures an ethos I have grown to appreciate since becoming a freelance designer: “The routine and business of life compelled me to rethink what happiness means. Simple things, I believe, can make us happy”
Jacqueline’s collection of illustrations is based on everyday objects taken from her childhood and create a warm, familiar feeling. So many of them vaguely similar to things I cherished as a kid too. All well loved and so simple, as life was when we where little.
