Blogging with comic isn't that easy

So you might notice,
I like to draw.

I use to draw a lot on scrap paper when I was in highschool. 
Something like this.

Though the above drawing was quite recent,
my old drawings were mostly like that,
only eyes, half a face.

I would cut up the scrap paper at home
and make it into a small booklet tied together with raffia string,
chuck it in my school bag, and bring it to school everyday.

I never finished using any of them.
Because being the typical me,
I keep losing them.

Now I've transferred to drawing on my own face instead.
Because drawing on paper is too mainstream.

Comic version of myself.

I still doodle on the back of receipts sometimes.

You know, because office jobs could get pretty boring sometimes. 

As you can see, 
my drawing style is a little more detailed + anime version.

Too much details, takes too much time.

I did try to use Adobe Illustrator.

But in the end, it takes MORE time to just do 1 simple panel.
Because I have yet to really learn the skills.

And I suck at matching colours.

I did think of venturing into comic blogging for about 2 weeks.

But the thing about comic blogging
is how to making long, long posts
into short, concise (and funny) stories.

Which is what I suck at.
I need teachers.

Who better to learn all that from
than our rising comic bloggers
Chee Ching and Ernest over a good cup of coffee and some food from CAFFeine?

Nuffnang is holding their first ever Comic Bloggers Gathering,
and Chee Ching and Ernest will both be there to let us bore them with stupid questions.

Like everyone else who wants to go,
I have questions that I want to ask.
I have stories I want to hear.
I have inspirations that I want to get inspired by.

But most of all,
I want to draw on a canvas wall.

Just kidding.

Okay I lied.

I do wanna draw on the canvas wall,
but I want to know their secret (if they choose to share) to success.

How they started and where do they intend to go.
Where will they see themselves in the future?
Animation? Or comic books?

and other questions...

I'm curious.

And also, I want to know if I ever do venture into comic blogging,
who are the competition I need to take out.
Because I could only imagine that the people who are there
are the ones who are interested in comic blogging too.

*flashes knife*

So to bribe you,
here's another hand drawn comic version of myself.
Also drawn on the back of a receipt. 

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~
