Bangsar Car Wash

Managed to sketch a few pieces while waiting for my car at the wash near my office in Bangsar. 
Colours were added later in Photoshop.

KFCM Always Wins

Growing up, I was never into football, not by a slim chance.
Recently however, the performance of the Malaysian football team has been getting a lot of buzz so I decided to follow the AFF Suzuki Cup match.

Since then, I have been a fan of the local team - particularly the main man Khairul Fahmi Che Mat.
The guy catches balls effortlessly... Err.. That did NOT come out right but yeah he made it look easy!

So this is my tribute to the Captain :D

The M.A.D Project - Make A Difference!

This week I have been blessed to have met 2 noble souls from Europe - Kamal and Nija. Together, they initiated a project called M.A.D (Make A Difference) which aims to rectify the stereotypical outlook on Islam in the eye of the Western world.

In hopes to change society through education, they both left their day jobs, set out to Muslim populated countries to document their findings, and bring it back to their homeland.

I was deeply moved by their intention and it inspired me to help them out in what I do best.  

Here is hoping that they return safely from their next trip to Egypt because I can't wait to collaborate with them in the future!

Check out their website: The M.A.D Project or follow them on Facebook!

Eid al-Adha

I call upon people of the Book to set aside our differences through respect and remind ourselves of our Abrahamic roots. Happy Eid al-Adha.

It has been a week of perpetual rain.

My friends and I decided to swing by Selangor Mansion to have a taste of the popular Roti Canai Special at one of the stalls there. It was almost midnight when the rain finally gave chance to sheltering pedestrians - and then I saw the top half of the Petronas twin towers covered in mist.

I felt like I was living in a Bladerunner world.

Jinouga Sketch

A somewhat inferior Monster Hunter fan art compared to my previous two, here’s Jinouga doing the Capoeira jump. Yeah I screwed it, I think.

Amatsumagatsuchi Sketch

My favourite elder dragon in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd: Amatsumagatsuchi! I’m always in awe whenever I confront it. Amatsu evokes the impression of grace and mystical majesty. Faux traditional brush stroke approach feels just right for it.

Alatreon Sketch

When you do art full time there will come a time when you’ll forget how to have fun (that got you into it in the first place). Since I always complain about exhaustion after work hindering me from producing fan art, I’ve decided to do it BEFORE I start work - what else would I draw? Monster Hunter of course!

Alatreon Helmet

I’ve been asked on Xlink Kai about what’s on my avatar. I guess when it’s shrunk to 50 x 50 pixels there’s only so much you can see. It’s actually the Alatreon / アルバトリオン helmet for male blademaster’s gear.

I thought of sharing the lineart and coloured version here:

Yeah, I named my character Chivalry so when I die, well.. Chivalry is dead.

R.I.P Graphire4 (2004-2011)

You have endured infinite battle damages beyond durability and you will always be remembered. We did so much kicking ass while it lasted. What kept this warrior together was the 3M adhesive tape. As you can see,the rubber grip is long gone nowhere to be found, and so was the double click button:

Now the new wife :)

Photos From Pekomik Award 2011

Thank you for those who attended the talk. It was such an honour to be speaking and discussing issues in the comic industry with the legendary Tn. Hj. Zainal Buang Hussein. A humbling experience indeed.

I profusely apologize to whomever I declined to draw in their sketchbook because I was extremely exhausted after traveling, rushing deadlines and having to wake up early for the talk. Congratulations to winners of the nominated categories - it went well.

Pictures from IDOLISM opening @ A Curious Teepee

I am 4 days late to update on the event! Ah well, such a life of a busy man :P

Of course, I'm only uploading pictures of ME here. You can view the rest on
IDOLISM : OIC SINGAPORE X A CURIOUS TEEPEE Facebook album by Twisstii ;)

IDOLISM x OIC x A Curious Teepee

Opening Launch: Thursday 5th May 2011, 7.30pm to 9.30pm

A tweed jacket, lobster claw heels, four little white stitches, a red gown…Iconography that has been etched into our psyche wittingly (and unwittingly) through the delirious world of fashion.

For this exhibition, illustrators draw inspiration from these objects of desire and their inventors, creating original artworks in the process. Using different mediums, participating artists include Mindflyer, Mr. B, Fleecircus, Sokkuan, Cherie The Mrr, Eeshaun, AnnGee, SanSan, Noreen, Fei, Miel, Annie Tan, Twisstii and Mriz Sidah just to name a few. (Yes, to name a FEW - They didn't include my name!) With varying backgrounds and styles, from political cartoons, to abstract surrealism, several take their first foray into fashion as subject matter.

With the inaugural Singapore Men’s Fashion Week just past and the upcoming Audi Fashion Festival this May, A Curious Teepee and OIC aim to convey another side of fashion, as seen through the eyes and hands of an artist.

All artworks are on display and available for sale till Sunday 22nd May at A Curious Teepee, 12pm to 9pm daily.

Where is Curious Teepee located?
2 Orchard Link #02-24, Singapore 237978

No Free Drawing

I've been drawing people during my lunch breaks at the restaurant I frequent as of late. Some of you may already know that I also participate in the O.I.C Portrait Day at the Red Dot Design Museum every once a month. Sitters will get to choose whichever drawings they like and pay for the ones they take home with.

So one day I decided to just give the drawing to the subject - for FREE! The result? Not only didn't I receive a thank you, I was given the look like I wanted to sell insurance.

The following week (today), I encountered the same group at the same restaurant. Guess what, they crept out as I was ordering my lunch. As soon as I was done with my meal, I noticed them checking out if the coast was clear as if I was a stalker!

Maybe people have completely embraced that nothing in life is free, but man..
Maybe I SHOULD have walked up to them and ask if they wanted to buy the drawing instead, huh? So, verdict: Free Drawing FAIL.

Happy birthday, Ya Rasulullah. How I wish you were still around to help fix our people from continuously tarnishing ourselves.

It pains me terribly to see the world today, especially the stigma - no thanks to misguided jihad extremists and ignorant preachers :(

Finding Venus

In this decadent, superficial world, is there any genuine Venus left out there? Working with Copics has been really fun, although the colours do look better in person than the ones scanned here. Always the case with analogue media it seems.

The model is loosely based on a photograph of Nasha Aziz in kebaya. The background is inspired by Yoshitaka Amano's crazy magnificent elements.

Vertical / Horizontal

Strengthen your relationship with the vertical line foremost, for it will repair any broken lines in the horizon. Feeling spiritual at 4 AM.

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to sketch more despite my busy schedule. One of which is to record and document my dreams visually. For this entry, I dreamt I was bald in the middle! SHITE!!!!

The Journey Of A Fanboy

Decades ago, I would save every day from school - particularly lunch money - just to collect The Devil's Reign crossovers and Weapon Zero series. I was such a fan boy spending all my dough on Top Cow titles.

Today, I received a cheque for a new 5-issue mini series project I'm working on (I won't disclose it just yet) from the same company.

Call it as a return of investment, but it's one of those childhood dreams that came true :)
