PEKOMIK at PWTC recently

MnU was cordially invited to make an appearance at the Pekomik event at Putra World Trade Centre recently. We were given a booth to display our wares and were also asked to give an introductory talk about ourselves during the event. I flopped that one like guacamole gone bad overnight.

Still it was pretty much an experience to relish...that I will never ever do another talk till I get myself some proper lecture training.
Here's a peek at my contribution to the Longest Comic Banner in Asia...for the Pekomik event.
The rest of the Saladin team members got their hands on it too and all did a very fine job despite the tight deadline to hand it in to the organizers.

Laters, everyone!

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi 1975

Another one of Chuck Jones' wonderful projects based on Rudyard Kipling's story and narrated by Orson Welles. His adorable rendition of Rikki and the boy is truly inspiring indeed and the execution style of the character's expressions and reactions are truly one of Chuck's signature trademarks. I'm so glad he had worked on these gems when he did,something apart from what we're all used to seeing among the many MGM and Looney Tunes cartoons.

Tripod Entertainment Visit

There's been so much goings on lately that my updates here have been squelched tremendously. It's been an unending hive of activity around the office day in,day out. One of which is a lovely visit from Tripods Entertainment to our Saladin office in Cyberjaya. That's some of the Saladin team members alongside JCC and Tripoders.

Gregg showing his Zoorocco project to the guys that missed his lecture series the day before.
Me with my babies. Character designs for the first 6 episodes for Saladin.
After all these years, Syed (my ex-college lecturer now director numero dos) is still marking and approving my designs. Below, some of us at Saladin still find the time to chill and relax after office hours over a game of DnD. Nerds....I know.

Some photos from Gregg Davidson's animation lecture series on Zoorocco.

Having dinner with Gregg.


Enjoy folks!
