3x3 Winning Entry-Part 1


Ok, let's chat about the illustrations awarded by 3x3 International Illustration Show (3x3 Magazine)!

The awarded entry is my 'Digital Visual Diary', a series of four animated illustrations.

The story behind the piece began last summer, a lovely wedding, for which my fiancé (recently became my husband) was the groom's best man. The newlyweds had been together for several years already. I still remember vividly their loving eye contact and the inevitable smiles during the wedding ceremony.

It was my first time attending an outdoor French wedding. It was really fun and intimate. I enjoyed it so much. The wedding was held at their family's house surrounded by nature and beautifully decorated by the bride's talented mom. There were hanging balloons (in coral red and white) on the trees, outdoor games, and the vintage photo booth. At night, the sparkling string lights created a romantic, warm atmosphere for the wedding.

My most favourite part was after wedding cake cutting, the newly-wedded couple then kissed with their families and friends around. What a beautiful and moving moment it was! It was this unforgettable experience inspired me to create this loving work: 'Lovely Wedding in France'.

As far as I know, a typical French wedding often starts with a wedding ceremony from 3 pm, then photoshoot, aperitif, dinner, wedding cake cutting, and then drink and dance until the morning! To get myself ready for this, I went to bed at 8pm the day before XD

P.S. There was a funny incident (okok, or more precisely, a silly incident XD) I wanna share with you guys. Guess what kind of silly thing I did when I got the news from 3x3?


來,你們來,你們坐,那我們先來聊3x3當代插畫獎吧!

這次的得獎作品是 Digital Visual Diary,當中包含了四個動畫插畫,這是其中一個。

故事要從去年夏天說起,我跟當時的未婚夫(最近才變我先生XD)去參加他從幼稚園就認識、一起長大的好兄弟婚禮,他擔任伴郎。新郎跟新娘在一起很多年了,還記得他們證婚時,那有愛的眼神跟守不住的嘴角,真的讓我不自覺地被他們粉紅泡泡圍繞。

那是我第一次真正體驗到法國戶外婚禮,覺得很好玩、很溫馨。婚禮是在一個充滿大自然的戶外場地,也是新人奶奶的家,而佈置都是由愛手工藝的新娘媽媽一手包辦,佈置的非常可愛。樹上綁著粉紅色及白色的氣球、還有讓大家同樂的戶外小遊戲、復古擺設的拍立得區。到了晚上,還有樹與樹之間掛著的一閃一閃小燈,氣氛十足。

我最最最喜歡的橋段就是新人切蛋糕的時候,大家簇擁著這對可愛的新人,見證他們充滿愛又靦腆的吻,當下的感動搭配現場的氛圍,彈出幾滴淚都不為過。這次的美好婚禮經驗與這個動人的moment,也造就了這個有愛的作品:Lovely Wedding in France

最後來簡單介紹一下法國婚禮的流程,證婚儀式一般是下午三點開始,之後是外拍、雞尾酒聊天、丟捧花、晚餐、新人切蛋糕、第一支舞、再來就是喝酒、跳舞...到天明(早上五點)。為此,我前一天八點就睡了XD

P.S. 這次得獎還發生了一件蠢蠢的事XD 你們猜猜看是什麼頗烏龍的小插曲?
