Comic Fiesta 2009 Day 2

Wow, today was VERY tiring after all the sketchbook request drawings and talking and shouting (it was just too loud) and selling.. Man. Glad my prints managed to sell. Thanks for the support, guys. Appreciate it, really.

Since it's Sunday the place was just way too crowded. I even forgot to take pictures of what I drew in those sketchbooks! So before it became packed, here are some photos from early in the morning:

Me and a long time LJ friend, UltraM2000



Michi finally came to collect the Fatalis armour drawing

And that's about it. I hope I can find scans or photos of my drawings today from the net soon! Anyway, it's been really fun meeting up with everyone. See you guys again next year!

Comic Fiesta 2009 Day 1

Very tiring but also very rewarding.
Lots of fun, lots of new cosplayers, and especially new crowd - it gets bigger and bigger every year! Can't believe it's almost a decade of Comic Fiesta. Has it really been that long?!

Daft Punk!

I had in mind not to accept drawing requests this year because I really just wanted to chill and enjoy the event. Fat chance. So instead I started drawing to Amei (AMAZING artist, by the way. She's not even doing it professionally. Taking PhD in Australia even!) as a favour. Once they see you take that brush out it's like every other year again hahah.

The sketch for Amei that started it all (image stolen from her LJ. Thanks, Amei!

Fake smile with Amei after flipping through her crazy sketchbook boo hoo hoo

The requests continue:

My first Monster Hunter fanart, and it had to be a Kirin armour. Weird anatomy, but hey it's a quick live sketch for an excuse

Satisfied Cobra "Royce" Commander. Thanks for the support, dude!

For Hooooon

WITH Hooooon

Another Monster Hunter entry, FATALIS ARMOUR! This one goes to Michi

Be back tomorrow!

KRE8TIF! : Malaysian Creative Industry Awards 2009

Photo by Najib / Art:Tech

I was away for almost a week in Malaysia to attend the inaugural creative industry awards (aside making presence at my cousin's wedding) held at the Royal Chulan hotel, KL.

Being away from home I had no idea how huge the event was until I set foot there and saw myself the big names involved throughout the digital content conference.

I was one of the finalists for the award night. I could never be happier with my decision to bring my beloved mother along the moment results were announced. My Demi Kala piece won Best Digital Artwork (Experimental) and Intipati bagged Best Digital Comic!

The interview with Astro went on air the next day but boy was I glad that I already flew back to Singapore so I didn't have to see myself stuttering in awestruck.

Malaysia has started to recognize the presence of digital art industry and I can only hope for more of such events in the future. Thank you, MSC! Can't wait to see the turnout for the coming year.

5 Sec Faces

A friend of mine is running a project called 5 Second Faces -a street photography project between Fleecircus and Danny Santos to capture the different personalities that make up face of Singapore:

"We roam around the streets of Singapore with an illustration board for a makeshift background, look for strangers with distinct faces, then ask "Can I take your picture? It'll just take 5 seconds..." If they agree, we quickly click away :)"

This was taken during a hectic 3x3 exhibition day at the Red Dot Design Museum:

What a doped-up druggie.

Adiwira + Friday (Prayer) Blues

Adiwira was originally a short story. I'm currently developing this concept for a one shot comic or a 5 story arc. We'll see what happens to it in the near future.

Today marks the 2nd week of work at my new office in the heart of the Lion city. Adapting to the new surrounding includes finding a nearby mosque for Friday prayer. With the help of I located a mosque at the UOB towers / Raffles Place MRT.

Upon reaching there I couldn't find any building that resembled a mosque, let alone one that has a dome. Puzzled, I scouted around - it was already 10 minutes past 1 and I still haven't heard the call for prayer. Eventually I tailed people "who look like they're going to the mosque" and to my surprise, I was at a small staircase entrance leading to an underground basement: The mosque is underground!! How cool is that?!!

But that fleeting feeling sank soon after the sermons began, when I saw people squeezing their way in as if it was a hidden refuge... An underground mosque huh?
Before long, flashes of news on the image of Islam to the world today gushes in :(

I just felt sad on my way back to the office.

Peace be upon you.

Neko Pancake

So it's been more than a week since I finished my mammoth project that took up 80 meters in the Esplanade, and I've been doing nothing but play Monster Hunter Fredum: Unite with D. I don't even draw anymore in my free time!

Cat pancakes!

That was an awesome Sahur :3

Esplanade Presents: Of Music And Mayhem

Zid here, back from the DEADDDDDDD.

This is the product of me missing in action for 2 months: a suicidal 87.1 meter installation. Disclaimer: It can definitely be much better should I have been given the appropriate time to complete this. This will do for this crazy attempt.

If anyone feels like taking a walk down the Esplanade tunnel accompanied by linear narratives, feel free to do so from tomorrow until Oct 4th!

Here are some setup photos from yesterday!

So I was wondering what to have for lunch today, working at home and all. My usual trip to the nearby restaurant for food take out had a slight change of menu when I saw "Thai Pineapple Rice". Then I figured hey, why not? Right?

And then they gave me this:

FYI, I carried the pineapple all the way home just like that. This is friggin' cool! ~Nom nom nom~

In other news, Radical sues Radical! *gasp*
To Quote Heidi MacDonald:

THR has a copy of the complaint, and the most interesting thing is this:

“Blatant’s management failed to have any of its employees sign work-for-hire agreements and/or assignments of copyrights, thereby clouding title to all of Blatant’s projects, and making it impossible for Blatant to provide proper chain of title documents and guarantees to investors, production companies, studios, and insurers, to the detriment of its shareholders.”

Mmm hmm.. we were there. The news is so proliferated. Read all about it here:
