Pikaland is a blog about living the illustrated life — an art and illustration blog that’s a collection of beautiful things and inspirations that I stumble upon on the internet that’s made/designed by illustrators and artists, and is updated almost daily.
I also love thinking of new ways and projects where I can connect illustrators + artists with their audience! Here’s a list of our projects to date:
I launched the Work/Art/Play online course for artists and illustrators who are looking to market themselves creatively while having fun and staying true to their art. For more information, sign up for our spam-free mailing list to be the first to know of new projects!
1000 Things to Draw: A free random drawing generator that helps you decide what to draw! Warning: can be silly and induce fits of giggles!
Camp Pikaland : A virtual school for artists by artists! (This project has ended its run!)
Pikabooks : Our zine publishing arm with a part of our proceeds going towards eradicating childhood illiteracy!
Good to Know project : An ongoing zine series filled with advice + inspiration from illustrators, artists and designers.
The PikaPackage project : A swap meet + art collector’s package for artists and illustrators! (This project has ended its run!)
The Mayor of Pikaland
Hello, my name is Amy Ng (pronounced hng (silent h), and I’m madly in love with illustrations.
I’m a freelance illustrator from Malaysia, and I was an editor at a regional architecture and design magazine before realizing that my first love was illustration, although the topic of design trailed very closely behind. I’m constantly finding new inspirations and wares from artists and illustrators that are available for sale, and so I thought I’d gather it into a place where I can keep them all together. I am constantly inspired by illustrators + artists who have their own online shops, and I hope that Pikaland as a platform will be able help them in a small way.
And that, in a nutshell, is how Pikaland was born. I hope you’ll enjoy looking at the wonderful works of others, as much as I love looking for them.
Pikaland welcomes submissions from illustrators + artists all over the world who would like to share news about their work. We focus on illustrations/art that was made by the artists that are available for sale — online or otherwise. Please head on over the the contact page to tell me more! If you’re on Instagram, just tag me in your photos (@pikaland) and I’ll be able to see it!
