Hello everyone, how're you doing. Recently there're lot of people in my office getting sick, and I was one of them, so I hope you guys are doing fine...
Sorry for long update since My journal about Comic Fiesta.
After the event ended, I flew straight to Tokyo for few weeks for holiday and also to visit the famous Comiket 83~
Got to meet a lot of awesome artist and practiced my Japanese, I bought a lot of doujins too (I'm broke huhu). It was super awesome...
<click for clearer version>
Comic King Vol. 153 (february 2013 edition) by Gempak Starz featured 8 artist profiles from Comic Fiesta 2012, and I'm really happy to be one of them.
But since I can't read Chinese, I asked my friend to translated it for me. However for whatever reason, "I" sound kinda snobby lol. Perhaps, they have a very limited space of writing? =3=a
A few things were being left out, but this is pretty much my answers during that time:
How many times have you joined CF?
This is my 4th time.
What artwork would you like to introduce to everyone?
Some original doujinshi, visual novel, postcards, button badges and other merchandise, but what's important this year is that I want to introduce my recently finished original comics, The Butterfly Ink, which the first volume was already published in Indonesia (I'm Indonesian) to wider audiences.
Which artist here do you most admire or like?
Um… There's a lot of artists here that I admire, but I guess one of them are Kidchan, Liricamore, and some of Thailand artists, and… I'm really bad at remembering names, so sometimes I have to look at their works first (haha).
Do you have any comment for this year's CF?
I think it's really good that CF this year brings a lot more of international artists, but I do hope they don't forget to give enough exposure to the locals too.
So sorry if I sound like a snob there, but it was not my intention D:
So I hope you understand
About Butterfly Ink 2, it's been a long time, yeah, but I actually finished it since August 2012, but because some thing and another It could only be published probably around February/March,
I'm really sorry for being late, I hope you still looking forward to it
I'll update about it more once the publisher already gave me green light, hehe
Meanwhile see you, and take care~
