Started working on this illustration/pin-up today with plans to put it on shirts and maybe prints. I have yet to figure out how to colour it. I'm not colour blind, though I can only think and dream in black and white, which is probably why I'm so bad with colouring stuff.

Hello! I'm currently working on a new short-story comic, called Crybaby which is set in 16th century South America. Below are two draft/penciled pages from it, Page 2 and Page 3 respectively.
You can read the completed Page 1 as a teaser right here and I'll be adding another four pages (including the finished two from above) real soon. Stay tuned!

"Possession" is my big project for 2009. I've been working on the story since early 2008 and plan to publish it as a graphic novel of 190-plus pages before the end of this year.
The image above is a concept for the cover depicting Possession’s protagonist. After watching her family tormented and subsequently killed for their land, our 77-year-old grandmother is driven by rage to exact revenge on the murderers. While the story has in essence a straightforward action-revenge plot, I’ve introduced a psychological-supernatural twist to it, of which I won’t reveal the exact details to avoid spoiling the “fun”.
I will be posting the occasional highlights of the process of creating my first graphic novel, which will be a monumental task for me, since I’ve only been making short story comics of less than 10 pages so far. Do check back or better still, subscribe to my RSS feed for my next update. Have a productive and eventful 2009!
P.S. Any inquiries or words of encouragement are most welcome in the comments. Cheers!

My second t-shirt is off the blocks! Throw it on for a boost of energy to jump start those lethargy-mornings. Anyone who spots you in it will think you just had an adrenaline-bingeing session at the gym.
Available in different colours. Go buy it here:

This started off as a loose idea for a sketch of a boy holding something to wind down for the night. The end result turned out a little more detailed than my random sketches usually are and am quite pleased with it. It’s a pity I drew it on the back of a used text printout among some scribbled notes. I wonder why he set his grocery list on fire?

I was going through my pile of old sketches and abandoned comic-pages, when I came across this it totally cracked me up, like: "GAH-HA-HA-HA!". I think I did this 2-3 years ago and somehow lost interest in it. It was supposed to be an over-the-top gag comic. Maybe I prefer reading comedy comics more than making them.

Looks like my entry for the MIMC 2nd Competition wasn't good enough. Yu Meng-Lin of Taiwan is the winner of the Grand Prize with her/his entry "Fairy Tale" according to ANN. Time to crawl back into my cave and recommence my manga training.

I sent my "Beasts" comic (in pretty printed pages) to Japan to contest in the
Kodansha (one of the Gods of Manga publishing) 2nd Morning International Manga Competition and looks like it survived the initial rounds of intensive berating and criticism. It made it through to the final 31 and the winner and runner-ups will be announced next month. COOL!
Go have a peek at the high-standard work of the other 30 contestants: http://e-morning.jp/mimc/result2/english.html
