NTUC Lifestyle magazine book review

Book 3 met students from 3 schools in 3 days! The last week I was in school promoting Totto's new adventures. Once I download the pictures from my iPhone, I will blog it here in my next post.

Here's one of the first reviews of Book 3. It's by NTUC's Lifestyle magazine, also the largest circulating magazine in Singapore.

And here's a few readers from schools who'd read Book 3:

"Yo Sir, book 3 was great! Just like the Original Sir Fong, wish i had also bought the other two books." 

"A really cool book. Good luck for its official launch in December!" 

  "Hey sir, loved the books, all 3 of em =)"

Sonny Liew, comic artist, wins Young Artist Award!

Gone are the days when comic books are associated with the 70s Kungfu hit "Dragon Tiger Gate". Some parents still think comics promote bad lifestyles! Gone (hopefully) are the days when comic artists are viewed with suspicion by politicians.

Singapore is ready to move on. Sonny Liew, creator of "Malinky Robot", wins the Young Artist Award. He is the first comic artist to win such a recognition in Singapore! What's also interesting is that, since comic art was never recognised before, he won it under "literary arts" rather than "visual arts".

"Many still question the idea of comic books as a valid form of art, but it now has an institutional boost in Singapore. Comic book artist and author Sonny Liew was announced as one of the five Young Artist Award (YAA) recipients at last night's 2010 Arts Awards ceremonies held at the Istana。” -Mayo Martin

Bunnies are irresistible. They can sit in a cup, do nothing but tweak their nose at you, and still garner 1 million views on Youtube. 

My bunnies aren't idling! They're waiting for you in the bookstores after your exams!
 A mother informed me that she saw and bought Book 3 in Kinokuniya! (I'll go chase my distributor for details!).
