Bizarre Side of Sau Lim Pt 2

2 new short stories by Sau Lim are added in our gallery.
“A Fable of Revolt” is a satirical take on our local censorship board, who are capable of churning out rules and regulation that are much more bizarre than this story.
“The Anti-Boyfriend Story” is just a simple angst chic story. Well, with a touch of supernatural maybe. They are published in Utopia Magazine #95(1 Dec) and #96(15 Dec) respectively.

Beautiful Junk 2006

Michael went solo to Penang with the help of Kenny and Shaw Ming of Comic King/StarTalk(Thank you, guys). BJunk this year has the same good crowd, good exhibition and good music. Among the designers or design units who took part were Tin Toy(KL),, Bard(UK) and BKK2(Bangkok). Some of the great musicians who performed were Damn Dirty Ape, Citizen Of Icecream and Nao. The festival of art and noise was held on the 11th of November at Galleri Seni Mutiara, Armenian Street, Penang. We want to thank Chun Woei and the gang for organising this event. Until next year...

Rabu*Rabu, Anyone?

That means “Love*Love” for us commoners and its the latest comic strip by Michael to be serialised in Malaysia’s Gempak magazine. This humorous strip is about Eliz and Willie and how their curious nature put them in some whacky spots. Man, its really hard to discribe Michael’s work and make it sounds interesting, you all gotta read it yourself. Gempak #168(15 Nov issue) marked the launch of the series which featured a cover and an interview piece of Michael.

Manual Not Auto

Manual Epoch(M.E.) is a speciality shop for custom designed canvas shoes. We were invited by M.E.’s brain childs Mape, Jazz & Childson for a crossover project and Michael has done one. Among other designers who have left their mark on M.E.’s canvas was Tribe and Black Fryday. Michael created the character “Matt” specially for M.E.

Beautiful Junk is here again and this year the theme is “Hero”. We have contributed three posters for this exhibition.
