I’m catching a break from my banner-mailer duties at work to send you darlings a quick doodle I did today:
“While I had my back turned cooking breakfast, my cat Merlin ate two pieces of raw bacon.”…
WELP, okay the bacon I did here isn’t raw, but crispy bacon as so much nicer to picture than the cold, limp truth. :3 I wanted to make another kitty doodle of Kira, another little sweetheart (with the biggest eyes EVAR), alas I didn’t have a lot of time. AHA! TOMORROW THEN!
Hi again, folks : ) here’s a handful more of tweets, illustrated. I’m dishing them out as fast as I can, so send me 140 characters as you please!
— Stolen from Tata Cathy! I really liked this tweet.
— Stolen from Sib!
— Chi Roque!
Hey guys : ) Here’s the first 5 illustrated tweets. If you don’t see your tweet o’er here, please be patient. I’m still cooking up the second batch.
(ANOBAPING) Stolen from resident lover-man, Ping Ronquillo!
(Stolen from Marie!)

And so… If you’ve got 140 characters of something poignant, silly, or even dumb to share, you’ve still got a couple of days to fork it over for me to doodle! … That said, this isn’t supposed to be an exercise of a 140 characters worth of fancy-free, okay? Send me something that you really DID read on twitter, or something that you would’ve posted on your own, whether I asked for it, or not:) Otherwise, Disney cross-overs and robo-dudes making pancakes (though extremely cool), hurt my head. Okay? Okay!
I can bounce like a supah star!
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well, rest assured that I’ve been anything BUT lazy these last couple of days. I’ve got a new comic out! I should mention that I managed to pull it off in 2 DAYS.
WHAMBAMTHANKYOUMA’AM, I FELT LIKE I COULD TAKE OVER THE WORLD.
But of course, credit must be dished where it’s due. Many, many thanks to Karen for printing the master copy, and staying with me for her entire Friday lunch break to fold and staple the copies together! You’re a Godsend, luv! On that note, stay tuned for news on this talented girl’s book launch later this year! “Naermyth” is hitting the shelves in a bookstore near you! (Exciting, ne?)
A little bit about this 10 page photo finish of mine: it was actually a comic I did to sort out my thoughts for last Saturday’s New Slang – Grade School for Yuppies talk. The topic was “Metrophilia” , and since the evening centered around spaces and the mapping of one’s heart, I felt it was apt to make a comic about the many times I’ve moved homes, and the discovery of my absolute favorite one- circa ’92 Singapore. Here’s a page to whet your appetite:
I’m quite proud of it… even if I ended up on settling for a quick and dirty ramble about the landscapes of Miyazaki movies over our address at Shelford Road, Singapore. The comic helped me get my ideas together, and by the 10th page, pointed out exactly what I wanted to share. I might have only sold this on the side, but all in all, I think I did okay. Sure, I was nervous out of my gourd but I had a BLAST. Thanks for the opportunity guys. (Guys = Alice, Marla, and Jaton) Thanks for pushing me to do it and shushing my stage fright by believing in me. <3 Gizmo and Meng too; your pep talks, hugs and kisses felt like warm blankets of reassurance <3 <3 Hell, while I’m at it, I’d also like to give a huge THANKYOU to all the darlings who bought a copy of “Feelings Called Home” last Saturday! You all rock. I got my drink on good that night. hehheh…
Now dear reader, are YOU interested in owning a copy? I’m selling it for P20, so leave a comment, text, tweet, or message me if you are.
I LOVE YOU!
Lately, I haven’t been drawing out any new comics to share, but I have been illustrating little bits here and there as commission work… Who would’ve thought that drawing raging, violent bastards could be so much fun?! I mean, I don’t think I’ve been more pensive than usual lately, but I had no idea doodling a brawl could be so rewarding! (Thank you for the opportunity, Joel!)
