So... old...



It was my birthday last wednesday. Nothing uneventful, though I did go through some old work from way back during high school, and marvelling at the long period of time until recently where I don't take drawing that seriously.

Anyway here's one from 2005-2006ish. Hard to say, since I didn't date my drawings back then:


Fun fact: The Pillows were formed the same year I was born

I guess this is an update (+art dump)

I've been mulling over the purpose of writing out thoughts out here on the 'net: and it was not because of the fear that whatever I say will go into the void (though that used to be my fear, I admit...)

Thoughts on Comic Fiesta 2016

This is in by no way a review of the event - far from it, as it's more a rambling and introspection.

It is precisely because I am in such a mood that I decided to write in here, after... wow, almost two years of silence here? Huh.

Just as my visit to Comic Fiesta yesterday, really, what I wanted is to dig deeper into myself. It is not merely to announce my presence, of being here for the sake of being here.

The struggle of drawing

Self potrait, back in my weaboo-er days


Last weekeend I was at Comic Fiesta, one where I was more into one of the two things which attract me to the event (ie comics/doujin arts, and cosplay), and you could see my thoughts in previous entry.

After having some discussion and chat with doujin artist through the event, I took a quick look at some of my old drawings, in an attempt to really get down to what is it that really pull me into drawing? What is it that makes me tick?

Comic Fiesta 2014


Post-CF post, summed up in comic form to stay true to the 'comic' part of the event hehe.

If I were to sum up Comic Fiesta in one word, reconciliation would be the word. Because I really love both aspect of cosplaying and doujin art, even if I might be making a bit of noise on the former haha. I honestly want to approach cosplaying like a 'proper' art, and would like for doujin comics to have wider appeal.

Probably this CF is the most personal for me, almost similar to 2010 (first trip) one, and I did spend more on the 'comic' part for this time. Feel a bit bad for neglecting the usual cosplay dudes and dudettes, but I'll let you know that I'm still very much into cosplaying as I am into drawing. Thank you to both the doujin artist, cosplayers, and everyone else who made the event worth it for my side. Cheers.



I manage to have some good discussion on one of the person that influenced me in drawing again, it feels great to show my stuff and get a bit of feedback and encouragement. 

Thanks Max, it's been great to be able to meet you again!

[Weekly drawing assignment] Week 10 & Week 11

Right, I'm a bit behind schedule for last week... but yes, I plan to make this a mainstay at the blog now. Do stick around as I scribble my way through my journey to improve my chops at drawing! (or well, it makes a good habit in getting me to draw more, yeah?)


Week 10: Lady (K)Gaga. This was when one of my friend pointed out the katakana for 'ka' and 'ga' are almost similar (か and が) in Kaga's kanji, so...


Week 11: I was going to draw Fusou and Yamashiro, but somewhat gotten around to draw Maruyu being fattened up for eidiladha... err, I mean, modernization! 'cos you know, it's better to get that 1.6 luck stat increase as opposed to just 1.2!

Weekly drawing assignment

Not long ago, a couple of people and I decided that we should get a drawing group to boost our motivation to keep drawing (and improving at our art), and we have decided that we should assign ourselves to put out at least one drawing per week for others to see.

What they said.

As I have not been on social media (read: FB) much, I still very much keep the... assignment going, and I guess it's about time I put up what I have produced so far:
