gilamon @STCC(singapore toy & comic convention), 27-29 june 2008

Lefty has posted an entry of his STCC experience in IACAScW.(Inaugural Asian Comis Art Symposium come Workshop, probably the most constructive and helpful comic industry-based forum in Malaysia)

You can also read about what IACAScW moderator, Hafidz Mahpar's thought about the event as well as Rizal Solomon's article which appeared as a cover story in NST Life & Times on the 4th of July, 2008. Both are great reads.

Here are some images we captured during the 3 days. More images @michaelchuahdesign.

Knew it wasnt all vacation and getaway for you guys despite being there for a few days in Spore since you have got crowds to entertain and arts to be publisized. For all I see, it looked like a successful event! (What was the thing in the pic that you wished was real? Those werent fake life-size donuts, were they?!) Cheers to good work, peeps!

Hey Redcode
I think we've walk enough during the day when we all decided to skip taxi to the exhibition hall hahahahaha... i bck still hurts :P

Lets do it again next year, and i hope u wont just stay for a day then :D

those r not real pastries. we were so hungry at dat time and its so hard to leave the booth, its such a disappointment to find out that those buns are just figurines!!!

Gilamon said...

Hey Ivery
The responds towards Gilamon were very good but we didn't earn a big bag of $ back ler. we are n indie outfit, not tokidoki or devilrobots. We managed to sell enough Ts to cover the full expenses of the trip though :P
