Digital Island Project: Week 4 & 5

Double feature

Alright so there was really nothing much going on in Weeks 4 and 5. I finally finished that sequel of the Onion Method, which I owed for like, a whole year.

Then I wrote some more Alexander Comic stuff, but that’s not a thing I want to discuss openly atm. Regardless of my past transparency about my process, especially the development of this book, I am feeling more precious? sacred? about Alexander. So I am gonna be all ~secrety~ about it, till I finish the first full draft of the script.

Some more big boys to get the hang of Alexander.

Anyway, the government announced another extension of the lockdown. Which means… my residency isn’t officially happening this year!! This is really it. This is the last of my travel plans for 2020 that fell to the dust. What a year it’s been! I remember writing in my several notebooks late in 2019 about my enthusiasm for the Travelling and Wandering and Exploring I had planned to do this year. Guess I am still doing that… within the four walls of my home.

But yeah. A short update this time. Till next time.

Going through an art reference book from the 15th century to select an alphabet initial to sample in my graphic novel/modern illuminated manuscript is giving me emotions :’) I’m using the book the way it was meant to 600 years later, how WILD is that!!

Malaysians should enrich our conversations about Israel & Palestine from purely theological to colonial occupation, human rights & dignity. So, we can apply the same justice & empathy in our own context in regard to orang asli, refugees, religious minorities & LGBT community.

Do you like stories about friendship, ghosts, and growing up? Then check out this juvenile graphic novel: SΓ©ance Tea Party. It follows Lora as she discovers just how bittersweet getting older really is. #OCLSReads

Mah Meri residents should not be further displaced, much less for tourism in Sepang. Stop treating indigenous people as obstacles.

Malaysians are in the middle of protesting the violence and settler colonialism by Israel against Palestine. Please bring that energy back home too. https://twitter.com/msianinsight/status/1392978368279113732

I just think it’s rad that comics as a medium inherently present time *as* spaceβ€”time and space not as different dimensions but as different facets of the same thing. Every page is a unit of chronology-as-geography. How can anyone not get immensely excited thinking about this?
