Beautiful Junk was successfully held on the 11th June, 2005. Venue were changed from The Fort to Dewan Seri Pinang due to the weather, but it didn't stop people from around the country to visit this one day festival of art and noise. More than 30 artists/designers contributed exclusive artwork for this event. Top musicians like Pete Teo, Damn Dirty Ape(DDA), Seven Colar T-shirt, as well as new comers like Mumsters, Ugly Man made some beautiful noise during that day.
We didn't do too badly ourselves as Gilamon launched 2 T-shirts and our ashcan #1.
One T was our own production and the other was a collaboration with Radioactive. The fine folks of Radioactive did a tremendous job in printing our design in embossed felt ink. You all can still buy the T from Radioactive outlets. Our ashcan #1 and the previous #0 was available for sale as well. We want to thank those who showed their support by buying our Ts and ashcans, especially those who bought both! The Gilamons also want to thank Chun Woei and the rest of the gang who organised this event. Good work, my friend. Lets do it again next year.

Here is an exclusive look at Billy Tan's(Marvel Knight Spider-Man, X-23) creator own project, Ghost Kid. The synopsis, as provided by MunKao(series co-creator and Billy's brother) goes like this:
Garlic grabbing, Latin spewing, holy water in a vial. None of that please. Ghostkid ain't your father's exorcist. More likely to befriend a ghost then destroy it. Jack(Ghostkid) runs an exorcism agency with his psychic granny, Ida in LA which has both exorcised and adopted many stray spirits and demons including a runaway demon princess and a 6 legged lizard who have both become Jack's best buds.
Jack helps keep the city "clean" with his sling bag of enchanted artifacts such as Chinese yellow charms, Mountain Dew that has been blessed and little holy firecrackers.
His methods are definitely representative of the cosmopolitan city he lives in complete with its idiosyncrasies.
Sounds good? Keep a look out @this site for more info soon!
