XQ Fanz~ -> Jack <-

Lets welcome Official XQ Fanz Number 3~!!!!!! YAY~!!!

Can you tell us a bit about youself?
My name is Jack and I am 24 years old. I am currently a Singaporean studying for a degree in Tourism & Hospitality in Adelaide, Australia. I like to watch television programmes and read anything that is humourous and reflects real life. In my free time (which I have a lot of in Adelaide), I like to watch Jacky Wu's variety shows, movies and DVDs and certain animes.

How do you get to know XiaoQiang (XQ)?
I got to know XiaoQiang while reading a blog that displayed 'the supportor of XQ banner' and I got intrigued by it ever since I clicked on it. It can be said that it is by conincidence that I got to know about the wonderful world of XQ and the great works of David.

What's the first impression XQ gave you, and why?

My first impression of XQ is that it can appeal to many people (local and international) and I thought that it has already been made into a comic like 腊笔小新 (Crayon Shin Chan). After further reading of XQ and David's website, I realised the vast potential of XQ.
But I'm not sure a comic in the mould of 腊笔小新 is the direction David wants for XQ. I really admire David's creativity skills by making an insect that most people are afraid of and hate into something that is cute and funny.

Where would you like XQ to appear in, in near future? (eg: story books, comic books, merchandise, clothes, toys…etc)
Maybe a regular comic strip in a local newspaper or teen magazines in addition to the ones already appearing in ZB. With the increase of the exposure of XQ to other people in Singapore, subsequent merchandise like t-shirts, water bottles, car ornaments can follow.

Another direction XQ can take is by producing soft toys, pillows, decoration items, table lamps, a XQ clock like the screensaver available in the XQ website and etc. can be sold in shops like Giftland. Awareness of XQ can be spread through the internet community and slowly popularise it thoroughout the country.

Any other comments?
Not at this time I guess. I think I offered too many opinions when answering the above questions. Sorry that i'm a bit long-winded. Thank you for your patience. Must be my age. (-_-")
