小强漫画日记 之 《死亡日记》

Click image to view the full size.

Last Thursday, went to watch DeathNote with my good friend C.W.
The story is about a Notebook, owned by a Death God, fell onto earth call DeathNote... Whom ever's name is written in this Notebook, is bound to die in 40s, of heart failure...
This book was picked up by a genuis teenager, call "Light", he vowed to change the corrupted and crime filled world with this powerful book... with his new name "KIRA"
The Police, have a secret weapon, a genius crime fighter call "L", also vowed to catch KIRA, and sentence him to death...
This story's most interesting part is how both genuis counter eachother with their plots... watch them in the movie NOW~! or buy their comic...

Their performance dates:
5 Oct Thurs
14 Oct Sat
26 Oct Thurs
Cover Charge $15 (free drink, free song dedications, free aircon)
Opposite Clarke Quay MRT, visit the site for exact location~

I like the place as it's not likkkke, some bar, smokey, with noisy screaming band... we need to shout to hear the person beside u... at the end of the day, $ gone, voice gone + deaf...
Btw the place is vegetarian, no alcohol, no meat...
Tt's a good place to relax and listen to nice people singing nice songs~ they interact with the audiences too~~~ which i like best about, cause that leaves no gap between the performer on stage and the audience below~
XQ gang will most probably be supporting on Saturdays~!(if able, some thurs too) Those who wanna join us, please join us~! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

XQ Comic Diary

First try, hope you all like it~ if can't seer properly...pls click on the picture to view the full size... (jus in case u dunno...)
I'll create this fairly often....might do it as a weekly update too, as now i'm busy with work... never really go out and take photos anymore...and really not ez to think of a story...and shoot them out...but will find time...someday, as this blog really attracted ppl by the photo stories i created initially...
Pls stay tune for more updates, and join the XQ NEWS mailing list, dun worry no spam no virus... just will email you when ever my blog is updated. Which is easier for you, as you do not need to come back and check often...

Sorry no english...if i do it in english, the whole feel of the comic will be very very different, not the way i want it to be... but i'll translate here...
Title: First Time
- first time doing a comic touched/moved
- but also...very tiring...
- cause a lot of chinese words dunno how to write...

XQ on 联合早报 NOW (5th week - 1)

YAYYYYY~~!!!!! XQ is back on 联合早报 NOW~!!!

Seriously it's not easy to be a comic artist,
  1. first you need to have a good skill of drawing
  2. have a unique style of drawing
  3. you also need to know the core of comic creation (too much to elaborate, i'll skip this)
  4. next is to think of a good story
  5. then you need to have nice, attractive, unique characters in the comic
  6. how to ink
  7. you need to know how to color
  8. use the right visual to express the story
  9. use tricks to enhance the visual
  10. to think of new ideas, almost everyday...
  11. how to make the comic funny (this is the most challenging part)
  12. how to make the story to be easily understood by everyone.
  13. how to sell ur comic
  14. where to sell
  15. who to sell to........etc
The above is just a rough sketch of what a comic artist go through, it's a tough job, most comic artists live on passion, passion brings you forward make you carry on even the toughest job in the world, but the fire wun be always burning, sometimes it will die down...or even burn out... then you need to find the fire back and light it on again, or you need to find a partner to light up the fire for you...
Like me creating XQ, it was tough, but it was a fun process, cause i have the passion. It's almost a yr now since XQ 'revived' last Christmas, the fire is still burning as there's a few people who kept giving me their support. You know who you are, as you are reading this post.
I wanna say Thank You! And continue to support XQ~
