Kevin Eastman and Joe Pearson Talk at KL Hilton

But first, a couple of pics of the ComicWorld Convention that took place at the Cineleisure Mall earlier this month at Bandra Utama. Bleeehhhhh....:P Weirdos,geeks,addicts,junkies,...all turned out for this great excuse to mingle with fellow enthusiasts and just to have a really good time.

Hanie lost her hand there!
Joy! Aimo sketching in my sketchjournal. Booyah!

Another fun and memorable event where all the industry heads,professionals,old friends and colleagues gather together in one building to attend the much anticipated Kevin Eastman and Joe Pearson talk on their work and experiences in both the animation and comic industry.
Thoroughly enjoyed Kevin's humorous take on his life working on odd and ends before ending up giving birth to TMNT with his partner,Simon, and the endless inspiring works that followed suite after the comic came out. Various insights on Heavy Metal was also eye-opening. Now, another goal in life would be to get one of my artworks into one or so of those coveted pages. If only........
From left to right,..Grey,Edward,Joe,Me and Muid.

I love this pic of Mr. Sang Young-Hwan from Sun Min Image Pictures enthusiastically posing for a photo with Joe. Both very down-to-earth individuals who are always open to ideas and doesn't put one down like the over-eagerly pleasing gob of smut one is.
Especially learnt a lot from Joe on his talk on working attitudes, how not to expect but to give everything your best cause by the end of each day, it's your works that makes out who you are and not what one claims oneself to be without any evidence to back up.
Certainly a very special day to have the pleasure of meeting these inspiring individuals and old friends and colleagues there.
Can't hardly wait for the next event.

In other news, got to celebrate my nephew,Adam's birthday a week earlier what with everyone's hectic schedule and difficulty of getting everyone at the same place at the same time.

Will be having another celebration tonight,officially Adam's birthday date. HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY,NEPHEW!

And finally, a Rod Stewart music vid I grew up with as a kid eager for anything animated. Anything.

Also not forgetting this music clip of Paula with MC Skat Cat. Love the animation done here. Really inspired me when I saw it as a kid.

All of the photos are here,folks! Enjoy!
