If you're part of the void that I blog to, you might have noticed the silence. Yes! I had been busy, enjoying my time down under AND going through yet another Juggling 3 Projects Summer Freelance Hell (despite having said that I'm no longer consciously making such hells for myself ever again, somehow it manifested itself on its own -- that's how publishing works!). Here's a digest of stray thoughts that summarised the missing months:(more…)
Okay so it has been a while.(more…)
About the miasma of art made in the chain of blocks. A personal ramble. Just to preserve my current thoughts for my future self.(more…)
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.(more…)
Hello hello! I've got two author interviews for yall to read... to make up for the total silence of this blog (sorry! I'll probably be more active by October).(more…)
I am featured in The Star’s Lifestyle issue today, in honour of International Women’s Day! I talk about life after the (oh god was it that long ago) Eisner nomination, my next graphic novels, and women in comics in Malaysia.
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.(more…)
I'm excited to announce my upcoming middle grade graphic novel, Séance Tea Party! Information on the book plus preorder links and release date below.(more…)

She writes and illustrates quite a few webcomics and graphic novels. When not making books, she lulls away her time with essays on craft, life and experiences in the publishing industry. Some of her thoughts of art and life are rather unstructured and will evolve over time as this blog matures, as they should be.
