Site Revamp + Artist sites should be more fun maybe?

So I've been lowkey revamping my website/portfolio, which had increasingly become liminal in a Not Good Way since its last major revamp in 2015-2016. Since 2021's a year of studio-dedicated work (aka no Professional Jobs) and a year of reshifting my career goals, I finally found the excuse and the time to clean up, making the site more functional and more importantly, fun to me.

More thoughts below on how I redesigned and compartmentalised my website, which may be helpful to other artists out there who are looking to do the same thing.

An Essay from a Grieving, Very Angry Storyteller About the State of the World \\ Or Why I Choose Survival Over Death

I am angry.

Oh gods I am raging.

I don’t know how long I can contain and delay my rage and grief anymore. I am close to bursting. I need an outlet. I need Alexander (it’s become a book that’s emblematic of my passion - both hopeful and angry). I need to talk. I need to yell and scream and find catharsis and make something beautiful and radical out of the nonsense that is the last half of the 2010s. I need I need I am angry I am angry.

It's not an author's job to make a reader like a character, nor root for them, nor to even make them "relatable". An author need only make a character /believable/, and this becomes especially important to remember when reading the work of a marginalized creator.

Want to celebrate Pride with us? Want to hear about awesome comics?

Then join our amazing creators @joepi @reimenayee and @jessizabarsky and Sr Editor @WhitLeopard for this Monday’s event!

I feel like being Malaysian is basically telling the world, "Yes, our country does in fact seem to be actively trying to kill us en masse... but hey, our food still SLAPS!!!!"

Then we cry into our burger Ramly and nasi lemak.

Just posted my first process post on Ko-fi for this illustration. ;)
