Guest Strip for Fall On Me

My friend Adriana is on her last trimester of pregnancy, so naturally for her online comic"Fall on Me" she asked for guest artists to cover it. What is surprising is for me to be asked as well--and I'm so flattered :) 

She asked me to do domestic humour/relationship humour--as I'm currently not in any domestic situation and most of my friends are getting married, to my (petty) jealousy, this strip was born. Fun fact, the couple is my friend Astrid, who is also a storyboard artist and her husband, Kukuh, the producer in her studio.

On a side note, Adriana ALSO has print versions of her book

Heisty Heisty heist




I still can't believe we managed to get this comic done!

To begin with, Lia and I worked in different cities (still do, and now even further) and our jobs are both pretty hectic. At the time when we were doing the first issue of Heist, Lia's studio is 1.5 hour bus ride from her home, I was teaching and doing 2 freelance jobs . By the time the second issue rolls around, my new studio is located one hour away from my lodgings, my workload increased, Lia was busy with freelance jobs, and we finally got some break for the third issue. Lia has a very light freelancing schedule and I was inbetween jobs.

The distance and the real life stuff happening during the making of this comic was daunting and interestingly...ridiculous. Aside from the jobs, we had interesting health problems, famlial obligations to attend to...and, of course, procrastination, a problem  every artist faces I'm sure.
Some people has been asking: why is the drawing style for Heist so different from my "normal" drawing style? The short answer is: Lia did the final design on the characters. The long answer is : I thought Lia would be the one doing all the drawings, but I ended up having to pencil and ink  as well --because she gets busy when I'm not busy and vica versa.

Anyway, I'm so happy that the third issue is printed :) And I will be in Comic Arts Festival Kuala Lumpur, June 7 to 8 in The Annexe Gallery, Central Market :)

To be honest with you guys, this gallery looks more like a dance floor haha

More LC 3 Trivia!


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.

Exhibition in London!!!


Hey guys,

If any of you are in London, England somewhere in May 13, you can drop by King’s College because my old comic, Nanny is being exhibited from 3.30 to 6.30 PM. Cheng Tju Lim, the comic historian/educator extraordinaire (and my frequent comic collaborator /friend I love to pester) has arranged this to happen.

Come and see my embarrassingly bad pencils (oh god 2011, why) , CT’s evocative comic script and the final inked thing. I won’t be there, but go talk to Cheng Tju, he is a lovely, intelligent man about town. You’ll probably be able to get good conversation and almost assuredly, recommendations for great restaurant/places to visit.

Liquid City 3 Trivia Post #1

In anticipation for Liquid City 3 that’s coming out, I’m gonna be posting some mini trivia post every 2/3 weeks or so :)
So! This was the one of the panels previewed on Facebook. The thing about crowdshots is that, it can get pretty boring. Sometimes I ended up doing just caricaturing my friends and coworkers to shake things up. So here’s some of the little behind-the scenes and mini cameos of friends and coworkers in the comic.
Rony is the writer for our piece and Cheng Tju is our editor/beta for this particular short comic.
