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.
