Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

A very inspirational story.

Telling Tales

Last weekend was the London MCM Expo where Sweatdrop Studios released “Telling Tales“, our newest anthology. It’s a little late I know. It’s taken me a week to recover from the Expo.

The gorgeous front cover was created by my better half, Faye Yong, who also has a 40 page comic adaptation of the Grimm Brother’s ‘The Three Feathers’ which I had the privilege of scripting for her. That was a really fun piece to do!

Press Release

Sweatdrop Studios presents you with a collection of tales adapted from stories well-loved and time-tested. Contained within these pages you’ll find fables from near and far; some will shock, some will surprise and some will make you smile. Sweatdrop’s artists have scoured the globe for stories that have inspired and touched them in some way, and we hope that they’ll do the same for you.

Magic, greed, love, friendship, loss and punishment – fairytales have always encompassed a haunting mix of the fantastical and macabre. This anthology, perfect for bed-time reading, will capture all of that and more in Sweatdrop’s expected variety of styles and approaches; and the group are thrilled to be joined in this special book by guest creator Svetlana Chmakova (NightSchool/Dramacon).

Fatty-Chan Adventures – Part 01

Back in early February, Faye and I flew to Malaysia for a 3 week break. It had been 3 years since she’d been back there and the trip was planned to coincide with Chinese New Year. Lots of food to be had that time of year and what better place to indulge than K.L. :)

It was a fairly pleasant, yet long flight there. Around 18 hours including the stop over. The weather was hot and humid, which as Faye had warned me many times prior, usually results in a sticky feeling if you wander around outdoors too long.

I got to not only meet Faye’s brothers for the first time, but quite a few of her extended family as well. I felt very welcomed by everyone there. I can safely say that I thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Lots of food consumed. Hotel banquets, family feasts, not to mention the many, many CNY sweets and treats that were offered at every residence we visited. But I’m getting ahead of myself. The first part of our trip saw us visiting the gorgeous Pangkor Island. Enough blabber, though. Let the photos do the talking. Here’s the first round from the trip.
