It’s that time of the year again! STGCC is upon us!! Unfortunately, I won’t be there
because it’s expensive. But, my friends are opening a booth and selling some merchandise! ORIGINAL stuff too, so please support them.
The first guy is Jerry Teo of the Rex Regrets fame. You can check out rexregrets.tumblr.com to see his stuff. His work speaks for itself.
The second one is Gene Whitlock, who was the nicest customer in my first STGCC visit. He is also a talented cartoonist and his book The Unsavoury Alphabet will be launched in STGCC.
The last one is my talented coworker, Star Stray whose delicate linework brings me to tears. She’s launching her original sketchbook, so please check them out!

A few observational sketches I did on weekends. My buddy Reza got me into Nostalgia Critic so there are some Doug Walker here and there . I have watched his reviews on Moulin Rouge, The Last Airbender and Ponyo more than I can count, because, frig, those are fantastic!

One of the best purchase I made this year. (wow this month is just me recommending Kickstarters and books that I love and stuff)
I’ve always loved Emily Carroll since her debut with “His Face All Red”. So when I heard she has a book coming out, I bought it. The best thing about this book is how beautifully staged and styled this whole thing is. And aside from His Face All Red, all the comics are brand new. My favourite comic here is “A Lady’s Hand is Cold”.
This is a beautifully crafted book and worth every penny :)

One of the things that was requested by Rony (the writer) was that we do a loving pastiche of a famous autobiography comics. At the time, I wasn’t introduced yet to David Small’s Stitches and I haven’t read Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home. In the end I picked to pay homage to Craig Thompson’s Blankets because both Rony and I love the book (although Rony prefers Habibi). In my head, Sarong is like the Indonesian version where young Ben Anwar has to struggle with living in a religious family in the coastal town of Cirebon, how he meets someone who opened his mind, and his inevitable departure from his beloved kampung.
If some of you are wondering “how the hell does she have a spare time to do all this plus her dayjob?” I don’t. Liquid City 3 was first proposed in 2011 and Rony, Cheng Tju and I started attacking the story in early 2012—with them finishing sooner than me. The timing couldn’t have been better because I *just* finished my teaching tenure and I had some time to spare. I finished illustrating it about 1.5 months (with revisions) after they were done.
If you got nothing to do this Saturday and happened to be in Kuala Lumpur folks!

Update on Ferguson: Night of August 14, 2014
My father just returned from the protest in Ferguson, and this is what he said has happened:
The governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, took control of the police at the protest. He put in state police officers, who have been behaving much better than the St. Louis County officers (the officers who have been controlling the protests since they began).
Unlike the County officers, the state officers did NOT show up in riot gear and did NOT in any way harm the protesters (At least no one was harmed where my father was). Instead, the state officers walked WITH the protesters, PROTECTING them. They said that they were there to protect the protesters’ first amendment right (“the right of the people peaceably to assemble” plus four other freedoms: freedom of speech, religion, press, and the freedom to petition.) and were there to stop people who wanted to bring harm to the protesters.
Although there was a lot of energy in the crowd, there was significantly less violence because the police weren’t in riot gear and didn’t provoke the crowds. This is evidence that the people did in fact want to protest peacefully and only got violent when the police did.
I hope that this gives you enough information about what is happening in Ferguson. Hopefully they will allow the press in soon (yet another violation of our first amendment) and there will no longer be a need for people like me to give information about this to you all.
