Liquid City book signing - SOLD OUT!

Today paper's coverage on Channelnewsasia website (click link below):

Excitement is high for the book signing at Kinokuniya. Aside from the supporters of various artists, there are comic fans who gathered to get their hands on signed copies of "Liquid City Anthology". If ever there is a moment in Singapore comic history, this is one of them.

Troy Chin, Drewscape, Gary Choo, Kenfoo, Leong Wan Kok, Hu Jingxuan, Lefty, FSc, Chin Sau Lim, Michael Chuah, Koh Hong Teng and myself were present to sign each book on Saturday. Sonny Liew, editor and Eisener-nominated comic artist, headed the team. Celebrity supporters include Miel, Lim Chengtju and Morgan Chua.

We sold out all of Kinokuniya's stock that day.

Then it's off to Black Earth Art Museum, where Sonny and Hong Teng join 2 other illustrators for a unique comic art exhibition called "Half Flat", sponsored by National Arts Council.

29th Nov 2008 is a most memorable day for SE Comics indeed!

Liquid City anthology OUT NOW!

Update: Book signing at Kinokuniya (3rd floor Ngee Ann City)
2pm - 4pm

This will be the only opportunity in Singapore when you can get signatures of this groundbreaking comic anthology from many of the artists involved. As there is limited stock of the book brought in, don't miss this book signing!
Each book costs $41.99 (if I remember correctly)

I received my complementary copy of "Liquid City", published by Image (that's the publisher of Spawn). Besides amazing works by Ken Foo, Troy Chin, Koh Hong Teng etc etc, it's also edited lovingly by Sonny Liew. This marks a couple of 'firsts' for me:

1. First time my comic work is featured in an American publication!
2. First time my work is featured alongside my childhood idol Lat's work!

Here's a little video I made to celebrate:


29th Nov - Singapore Kinokuniya at Takashimaya

14th Dec - Kuala Lumpur Kinokuniya

Be there to get your historical document signed by Sonny Liew and some of the featured artists.

And on a totally trivial but fun note, my Jack Russell's five kids appeared on Sunday's newspaper. Their owner (not me) sent the pictures to Straits Times.

So so proud. Heehee.

Star Wars in Raffles Institution

Special thanks to Tanjong Katong Secondary School and Jurong West Secondary School for being such great hosts! I really enjoyed my visits and it's always great to be visiting Singapore schools.

Some students who have seen my Star Wars spoof asked to see it again. I finally got around to emailing Jacky Chua, my co-star in the English Day video, for his consent to post it on Youtube. So here it is:


I'll be doing book signing for the Image Comics "Liquid City Anthology" in Kino soon. Will keep u updated here.
