Drops In The Ocean v2.0 (click link to read the whole comic)

Originally published in (mostly) black and white for CF2010, this is the redrawn/coloured version I did earlier this year to match all the other Boris & Lalage comics which are in colour. I won’t be printing this as a mini - might want to collect all these short stories into a bigger book some day - but I still have some of the original copies (I like how the whale sharks look in black and white more actually)

I’ll put up a store after CF, I’m struggling to finish a new comic rn T_T drawing is ok but writing is so hard, I want to be a cheesecake

Neko: The Cat

Written by April Malig Drawn by Hwei Lin Lim.

Hey everybody! I wrote a story for Slate’s 12 Panel Pitch. Hwei Lim did such a good job illustrating it!! 

Thanks April for writing such an amazingly creepy and intriguing story, and Sasha and James for holding my hand through drawing it!!

"I was walking down this street with a girlfriend on Sunday morning when we were stopped by two policemen for twenty minutes of unexplained interrogation. Afterwards, I was mildly amused that I should move away from New York to get my first Stop & Frisk. It’s just as frightening, insulting, and upsetting as I’ve heard. And it made me late. I hate being late.”

At South L.A. mall, a Claus with quite an effect. 

For nearly a decade, Patterson has been the main attraction at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza during Christmastime: a rare black Santa Claus in a sea of white ones.
The mall, located in the heart of black Los Angeles, is one of the few in the country with a black Santa Claus. Some say Patterson is the only black shopping-mall Santa Claus in the Los Angeles area.
As visitors approached him on a recent afternoon, it was hard to tell who was more excited: the youngsters or the adults. The parents are the most loyal. They return with grandchildren, passing on a family tradition with a deep personal meaning.
"We need our kids to understand that good things happen in chocolate skin," said Til Prince, 50, of Palmdale, watching her granddaughter, niece and her niece’s son pose with Patterson. "We are often bombarded with the opposite. We’re not trying to exclude anybody, but [instead] celebrate our chocolate skin."
Patterson’s place in the Christmas traditions of black families seems only to have increased as the African American population of Los Angeles continues to decline amid waves of Latino immigration. The Crenshaw mall now has both a black Santa and a Spanish-speaking Latino Santa, a nod to the demographic shift.
"We make a point to stay in tune with our community," said Rachel Erickson, the mall’s marketing director.

"I just don’t want [my godson] to think that all greatness comes from a different race," said Graves, 45.   "There’s Santa Clauses his color doing good work, too."

DESIGN: Melting Water Mirrors 

Sick of how mirrors just hang there? Yeah us too. Ad agency creative Rikako Nagashim and acrylic designer Hideto Hyoudou came up with these trippy Mizukagami (Water Mirrors), which appear to be puddles dripping and overflowing from solid surfaces.
