Feature on the Malay Mail

Here's a feature from Kenny Mah about my process, Seance Tea Party, and current and future projects. Also I can't get over the opening paragraph: "Malaysian illustrator, writer and designer Reimena Yee has a touch of the Fae. No, there are no pixies or goblins in her family tree (not that she knows of) but her whimsical illustrations evoke fairy tales and distant lands we travel to only in our dreams."

Rowing off to my own digital island aka Better Online Boundaries Project (art dump)

So it starts tomorrow.

I know I have been yakking on about "Getting Away from Social Media and Building My Own Island on the Internet" since the early and not-so-long-ago days of this blog -- but this time, I finally have the opportunity to walk the talk.

Organisation System for Research-Based Comics

I was talking to a friend in our Group Chat the other day, and he asked if any of us had any recommendations for a system that'd help him organise the research for his food culture graphic novel. It reminded me that the system I used has changed in the past year, and besides, it's time to make an addendum on the How I Do Research for Graphic Novels post. So here it is. An update of sorts.

Upcoming Events

NONE FOR 2020

I finally got a copy of @reimenayee's Seance Tea Party and eventually I'll be able to actually read it.

Listen one of the reasons I advocate for lengthy schedules for artists is because publishers don't build in paid time-off for their freelancers and authors and stacked back-to-back projects can lead to injuries like the ones currently in my neck and shoulder

Comics is all fun and games until you have to study head angles and abstract them into your style -- then it's like, wth why is drawing so technical and difficult

so i was interviewed, and @buttermilkart got featured on @VulcanPost today πŸ₯² what a day. thanks to everyone who has supported and encouraged me so far - you the best πŸ₯ΊπŸ’– stay tuned for more!
