Shermayne and Xavier

I always enjoy taking photos for kids, especially my kids Shermayne and Xavier:P I take photos of them very often, as this my way of documenting their growth. Most of their photos are ‘snapshot’ as I don’t usually ask them to pose. I would prefer to picture them in their most natural way possible. Out of many many shots, there are a few which I find it quite nice…IMHO. Here are two to share.

I did another B/k version for this…

The Shermayne’s shot was actually an accidental ‘high key’ shot. I was shooting in M mode indoor before I get Shermayne to move near the window where the light was much stronger, and I forgot to check my setting on my camera. Then it turned out overexposed, however I kinda like it.:)

Super Zeroes Comic Book!

The 6-issue anthology project  – MUGEN has finally come to an end after the release of MUGEN issue 6. It has been almost 2 years since our Super Zeroes comic started it’s series in this anthology and now it has reached the final stage – ‘Super Zeroes solo book production’. 2 years of tough but exciting learning journey. Gained lots of valuable experiences on professional graphic novel production and made new friends who share the same dream.

This solo book marks another milestone for our Super Zeroes comic since it’s official launch as ‘dot. comic’ back in March 2006. We definitely do not wish our first book to be our last. This branch of Super Zeroes have more adventures waiting ahead for them and we are more then eager to share with our readers. Last but not least, SUPPORT LOCAL HEROES! SUPPORT SUPER ZEROES!!

Pre-order our Super Zeroes Comic book is now available at only SGD$7.90. Price include postage within Singapore. Special arrange can be made for postage outside Singapore. Drop us a line or message with your contact for further details.

Happy 1st Brithday… Xavier!

Xavier turns 1 on 17th April. We held a small celebration for him at our house on 12th April. The kids were all having lots of fun while the adults were busy catching up with each other. Too bad our house wasn’t big enough, if not we might be able to invite more friends.

He had his hair cut few days before the celebration. I heard he cried through out… T_T

CNY Spring Cleaning Part 2

I finally found something fun and exciting about spring cleaning.. haha. During the process of checking and reorganizing my stuffs, I found lot of old books and artworks, which I long forgotten about it. Now they look so new to me… hahaha.

Basically this CNY Spring cleaning post is not really to show the ‘Before’ and ‘After’ look of my room. But more of ‘showing off’ my comic and illustration books collection.:P

I also found some of my old artworks which I did for my freelance and during my Singapore Science Centre days. Looking at my old artworks, I realise technically I might have improve quite a bit, but I somehow feel that I lacked the creativity I used to have:( Maybe I need more motivations and inspirations…*sign*

CNY Spring Cleaning Part 1

Ok. I know the Chinese New Year is long over…. and I admit I’m a slow blogger. However, slow is still better than none…:P

I believe spring cleaning before CNY is a standard practise for everyone. Cleaning the mess and clearing unwanted stuffs does take up plenty of time. I took 2 days of leave just to clean the mess and reorganise my comic books in my study room. Can you imagine how messy my room was…haha.

I also took some pictures to show how messy my room was…

My work desks are always in a mess…

Comic books were all in a mess…

I’m really running out place to store my comic books…

Looking at the mess, I was totally at a lost. I do not know where to start! Soon I realise I have to remove almost all my books from the shelves/cupboard, reorganise the titles, wipe both the books and shelves, and finally pack them back nicely. I tell you… it was a tough job!!!!

Same goes for my work desks. Firstly, I removed almost everything from the desk, slowly went through all the stuffs on my table and trashed all unwanted stuffs. It was a time consuming process!

To be continued….
