If you thought there was something geek going down at Wilkie Edge yesterday, then you’re right on the mark. Comic Art Show 2011 kicked off at the building’s atrium yesterday, in a collaborative exhibition that hosted four exceptional artists from the Asian scene.
Featuring the works of Kelvin Chan, Noval Hernawan, Rudy AO and Wendy Chew, it was a veritable showcase of comic book heroes, villains and characters from the Western side of things, and I was blown away by the sheer quality of it all.
It was therefore inevitable that I ended up picking up ‘loot’, including a signed copy of rocketraygun (by Kelvin Chan). I also managed to corner the artists to chat with them about how they got their start in sequential art, and whether they had any tips for comic book hopefuls (we’ll be publishing those interviews in the next couple days).
And speaking of ‘loot’, I managed to get my hands on an awesome X-Men print by Mico Suayan thanks to the cool guys who put this event together. Mico’s going to be a guest at STGCC, so if you’re a fan, be sure to grab your tickets quick!
Here are some pics from the event:
If you missed the Comic Art Show yesterday, don’t fret. The event’s till 9 pm tonight (Sunday). The artists will also be making their rounds at STGCC at the end of the month, so that’s another chance for you to meet them.
